    It is possible that it was the safest option. I’ve been in relationships before where not having a card is far more dangerous than any virus.

    Working it...Have a list to purchase...
    So the tech, started it, blew about a quart on the parking spot, drove it OUT OF THE PARKING LOT TO VERIFY THE LEAK (F F S) got an oil light 100 yards out of the parking lot and returned, DROVE IT IN THE PRISTINE BAY went 50 yards inside when the shop foreman had him shut it down in a screaming fit.

    When they pulled the plug to drain the 0w20, they got a whoppin 2qts.

    On the plus side they installed my metal filter cap for me...

    LAST DEALER SERVICE EVER.

    ..........., and sad! The really sad part is that they were probably more concerned about the oil on their paved surface than the potential life sucked out of your engine.
    I had a dealership leave my oil cap off on my '11 and didn't find out until 500 miles later. So much for that dealership! Now if I need service I check the work that was performed.

    Welcome to TW Abram!
    Yes, many of us have. @CBoy808 does all my vinyl work. Reasonable and reliable.
    Conor has many satisfied customers here and has designed some pretty outstanding looking besides. Lettering for him is a walk in the park!

    Rigid lights on the hood, Amadillo "brush gurad" with Rigid fogs, Morimoto LED's replaced OEM driving lights, 86'd the tube running boards, Bridgestone Dueler Revo 3, 265/70/17.
    You would think the opposite would be true. Dealers pay the factory for those cars sitting on the lot until they sell the car. And with all of the "free" payments right now, you think they
    d be trying to move cars as they will have more showing up when this is over. My guess is they just didn't want his truck on the lot or it's a new/temp sales manager.

    Contact @CBoy808 he can hook you up with what you need as well as custom work. In the search box " Custom Stickers Made In Hawaii" he is a vendor here and has a thread here with examples of his work.
    Here are some he's done for me.

    Hahaha, nobody seems to like having to drop the headliner for work. Yeah, you have to pull all the trim that touches it, and preferably the front seats as well to get it out easily, but then it is all easy from there.

    I was in car stereo installations for 20 years, and could not begin to count how much deadening material I put in vehicles.
    Adding the foam or even something like trunk liner to the back side of all of your panels makes a nice difference. We would do that on any of our more advanced deadening jobs that we did.

    Did you do both inner and outer on the doors? On high powered stereo systems we would even put the heavy dampening on the back of the door panels and other trim before putting a layer of trunk liner. Just to make sure to kill as many potential rattles as possible.
