    After a few members have mentioned @War Machine having his own detailing thread, (whether he likes it not) He should have one.
    For those that are not familiar with @War Machine, he’s known as the neighborhood Detailing Guru. He graciously takes time out of his day and provides expert guidance time, and time again on washing, detailing, and products he finds that work well. Hell, he’s even sent several of us some great products to try.

    The rules are simple-
    If you don’t agree, move on.
    If you’re going to be an ass, you’re out.

    With that being said, I’ll link him to this thread.

    I️ have powder coated bumper caps, a rock nicked a small price and I️ can see surface rust underneath. What can I️ put in as a filler to prevent further rust? Hole is roughly the size of a pepper flake.

    I won’t bother typing them all out, but rest assured, there was a penis joke for every one of these posts.

    Sorry about derailing the thread @WarEagleSteve. You can go back to teaching everyone about hardness and softness now.
