    Mother's Billet Polish

    I went to OReilleys, Walmart, and Advance Auto today, to find out that none of them have it. OReilleys said they cant find it to order anymore. Its possible its getting DCed or reformulated/repackaged. I did find two jars at Peep Boys, so I grabbed them, but if you use it, you might want to check around locally to see if its sparse as it might be disappearing for a while.

    That was my same sentiments, I figure I got lucky by taking Peep Boys last 2 jars. Something is definitely going on with it, better stock up if you can.

    Advance Auto Parts I bet they still have them.
    It's possible they're being taken off the shelves to be re-introdeced later under a new formula perhaps.
    It is a top-notch product to be out of the market without any news...

    I checked Advance, all of the major auto parts stores. They are all out of stock on it. I suspect being reformulated as well. I just can't believe the plug would be pulled on it all together.

    I stopped by A.A this afternoon after work, and indeed, they don't have it. Hmm?!

    Only place I found any in Tulsa, Pep Boys. Clearly, no one shops there and they are the low man on the totem pole

    I've seen it in Advance, Autozone, O'Reilly and Pep Boys -- I always ask the manager if I can't find stuff.

    I would bet Carquest or NAPA or any small auto parts stores should also have it, or at least be able to order it from a local distributor.

    Part #05106

    Amazon sellers also have it.

    It seems a lot of stores aren't keeping shelves full -- a side-effect of the economy, but ask the manager.

    I think you are missing an extra zero there. #000 will scratch to hell.

    You just know if it's being pulled to be reformulated, that it's being done to make it cheaper, and not better. Potential bad news. Let's hope it's not a reformulation.
