    :annoyed:

    They are either in the automotive section, or near the RV section.......depends on what Wally World...
    I dont recomend useing any rubber around the clamp. The clamp wont scratch as it doesnt move once installed.

    :annoyed:

    Yw!

    Anytime! :D

    Sweet! That makes two of us! I'm glad Chris posted this thread this morning.

    I woke up wondering what I wanted to do today, but Chris made my mind up for me.

    I had anal seepage :poking: earlier, I thought it was because of reading this thread. Then I realized it was something I ate, when I had to go back and wipe again (I felt wetness between my cheeks) :smack:
