    Here is a real truck, diesel with loud muffler, or none. Came in to have a flat fixed. Really is nice that our repair shop started handling tires.

    Do you guys use behr paints allot I have found that the interior paints are very low quality and take allot of coats just to get the correct color and my clients find that they cant clean the walls or all the paint will come of. Your thoughts?
