    Your camera does not sound good. Might wanna find a small casket. And for a nominal fee, I'll make you one.

    LoL its a Droid.... it put it on auto-focus, they always make that sound when they focus.

    I wondered that about his back legs as well, but he was using them later on when I watched him near the edge... he used them to hold himself from falling by his web.

    Of course it will bead. Beading just tells you theres something on there that won't break the surface tension of the water. Any kinda oil will do the same thing. I can buff out the car and not add wax and it will still bead. Just sayin.

    Not every wax beads the same. I've seen little to no beading with low quality wax, thats why I was asking...

    Maybe he just enjoys it.

    Detailing is sort of a hobbie of mine and i'm always willing to do my friends cars/trucks! Great way to kill time on a boring day!

    Since my truck is stuck in the shop, he's letting me use his car while he's gone. I offered to wash and clean it up for him since I'd be using it annddd



    Yes I do enjoy it. Its one of my side hobbies. Everyone gives me shit because my truck is never dirty. Its only because I keep it clean after I'm done 'soiling' it :D
