Came in a nice velvet bag and it's flawless, I was afraid to touch it! Have to use NXT glass cleaner to get my nasty fingerprints off of the sides!

My wife was out of town for training for her work and I bid 5 bucks with 4.95 shipping, got it for $9.95! Hopefully other transactions go through before she sees it on online banking and then I can sneak it home.....

She gets nervous when I go on Ebay and type: Meguiar / Meguiars / Meguiar's / Mirror Glaze / Mirror Bright etc. :D

So you're the one who bid on it...

I was going to bid on it, but forgot about it while studying for finals.


One of these days, I'll post some pictures of the recent additions.

You know, I was thinking when I bid on it....I was thinking....."That dang Chris is going to beat me out!!!!!" I put a max bid with shipping included and figured you would come behind me and take it out from under me! :rofl:.

I'm pretty much Nappers on everything except My space (Meet the Parents) and Facebook (Aaron Belknap). Ebay I'm Nappers23 (my badge number as Nappers was taken.....who'd a-thunk!)

Thanks for forgetting Chris!

It was shipped very tightly wrapped and wondered.........

:D


Score! "Dont you dare click that button" I hear that so often :chuckle1:chuckle1

When I sign in Ebay, she says "What are you doing?" "Nothing.....just checking my rating....." :D

He he.

The M26 tins weren't from eBay, but are a recent addition.

I saw that Chrome and Metal Polish and it wasn't hit on for a long time and I couldn't justify it at the time.

I like the old Mirror Glaze/Bright bottles though! I like glass bottles. Heck, Best Foods mayo are now plastic....Sheesh, what's this world coming too! :D

I got it home and after waking up from working night shift at the ol' lockup. This thing is hard to photograph and the pictures don't do it justice. I took one laying down with natural light, then propped against a black background, not easy to photograph.....
