    I have a tool chest that doubles as a seat that I use in the van, and a creeper chair for working on the cars.

    Would you be willing to give a few pointers out.

    For instance, what is good to take tar off the side of my jeep?

    The front wheels throw everything on the doors and I must have run into wet tar at least once. That stuff sucks to get off and I don't want to use a harsh scrub to mess up the paint.

    Try lacquer thinner. Be careful, it will soften and remove the paint if you scrub too hard too long. After removing tar go back and wax over as the thinner will strip the paint of previous wax.

    Back from the service department (another $1,200.00 bucks but she is 100%). Interior stained and finished, tools in place and organized. I found some cool organizing trays I have had for years and made great use of them. All that's left is to have the dents pulled this Friday, then I will finish the paint touch up work and final detailing. Took almost 3 months from start to end but what a peach she turned out to be.
