Angry It was bound to happen...

Yep. It bit me. It finally happened. I knew it would. I mean after 200K miles....it has to happen!
I walked out to my car this morning, unlocked it, sat down, looked forward to crank my M42 and then I saw it....I couldn't believe my eyes. How could it happen overnight!
Oh well....what can you do....I guess just replace the SOB.

thats odd that it cracked over night. You would think that they crack in the middle of summer when it hot out and those things expand, but i guess the coldness can have an effect on them too. Did you ever put armor-all on it?

I never used Armor All. I only used detail-shop professional protectant.
