They banned it in like 13 states a couple months ago, but my parts manager went to order some today, and the number comes back no good, so he checked his email, and there was a letter with all the involved partnumbers that were discontinued as of 2/01. Says that they are looking for an alternative to replace it, but i doubt it will be as good.. I know I am sitting on a case also.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

How well does Pledge work. I remember an earlier thread, and a few responded they used it, but I curious as to how well it works.

Can it be used on the windscreen?

i'd use it to clean the motor and maybe some ultra grimey rims. I'd not use it on body or tank.

Always made the red on the GPZ shine nice. It sucked on the windscreen, but it was old and clouded anyways.

This sucks. Did they cancel the Chain lube too SmokinJohn? I saw that on your list as well. I am going to go all around Chicagoland collecting at least a year's supply of both. Similar to Vcook, I only use simple green on the rims, it will leave streaks on the tank and plastics.

Plexus is better than Honda Polish. Try it.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."
