Dear Mike,

I'll have to try these products - sounds like really goooood stuff.  I guess
I got used to using the Radio Shack/Hoppes' #9/pencil eraser tricks because
the switches/contacts/etc., always seemed to fail in the worst possible
times and places - like the windows stuck down in a rainstorm, or no lights
suddenly at night,far away from home, etc., and I had to scramble and
improvise to fix it. Boy, would I love to have a nice new Audi that didn't
do this stuff to me. 

Honest, I don't always do things half-*ssed. It just seems that way sometimes.
