So right now I commute about 2 hours a day on a bus so I don't thrash the hedgehog, so if I don't feel like catching up on the things I need to do etc lol, I think about more interesting things, such as this..

Everyone loves winning things, so we'd create a Detailing Products Lottery
however you don't buy a ticket to get in, you choose one or more of your products to "enter" into the contest.
By doing so you're filling the pot with detailing products, once say 10 people are in, I'd choose a winner at random (I'd enter the names into a random generator I forget what they're called but you guys know what I'm talking about, it picks fair and random) and BOOM we have a winner who gets to try out a bunch of new products, I mean who doesn't love that

the only stipulation is you have to post unboxing pictures, and atleast one good write up where you use the products, or smaller writeups where you're using products here and there

What do you guys think? I think it'd be fun and interesting, maybe even our site sponsor detailers domain could contribute an item here and there.

thats a good question, honestly its highly unlikely a product will totally freeze / if it does that it will be ruined, its more so the constant freezing and unthaw will degrade and ruin products, so say you left xx product in the freezing garage all winter then I'd be worried come spring, I ordered the bulk of my detailing arsenal in the winter and no products were damaged etc, heat can also be just as dangerous to products as cold, as well as UV rays, can't say all of this is exactly fact, just imo and ime

Sounds good to me but I think a few more stipulations would be needed such as one entry per person even if they put in multiple items. The entry should equal a certain amount, and what about used products. I myself would be okay with them cause it would be a testing bonanza.

and maybe instead of people actually sending other members products they already have people could enter the products they want and then buy them online and send them to the winner directly?

might save some shipping costs


:dunno

Yeah good points, better to lay out for ground rules, for now definitely one entry per person, idk what people would agree on a good dollar amount roughly of product id say atleast 10, used products would be allowed, you can portion gallon into smaller sizes as well, say taking 16 oz from your gallon of v7 is perfectly fine

Yeah I don't have a problem with that at all, but for some it'll be a great way to redistribute stock to others who would get more use and enjoyment out of it, but if you aren't stock piled or just don't want to then that's perfectly acceptable as well, if anyone wants to get me a panel pot of supernatural for Christmas cough :shiftyeyes :lol

I like this Sonic, great idea. We could also get people in to detailing more and keep people away from Turtle Wax.....

And we would help out the USPS with all the flat-rate boxes we would be buying.

The only problem I have is shipping, it would rape and if the products were only worth say $10 shipping would be $5 and that's a shitty ratio.

And what if southfour won! Imagine how much it would be to ship to Canada eh!

I like the idea of putting in our own stuff, I have products I no longer use that I'm sure others could use. I think we should start out with cheap stuff first, no sense in my throwing in some Carbon, to end up not working out. Lets do it, I'm in.

I like the idea it allows me to see and feel a few items I'm intrigued by and I can still use them to enter the raffle

We all have that product that has been sitting around, its almost brand new, but you used it and hated it. * Glares at Mothers/ Armoral products* throw em in. Im sure someone here enjoys mothers products, and would be thrilled to get a free armoral gift set.

Sounds like a pretty good idea. I know mothers did this for one of our members a year or so ago.
