Eliminating Brake Dust (by special request.)
Doesn't brake dust make your car look shabby? There's a device called "Kleen Wheels" that
prevents the dust from getting all over your wheels. It's a thin metal shield that bolts
between your wheel and the brake rotor. To install them, just remove your wheel, slip
the disk over your lugs, and put the wheel back on. No special tools or skills required.
They are black, so they can't readily be seen through the holes in the wheels. Since
Jags have a Chevy V8 bolt pattern, it's easy to get a set of Kleen Wheels that fit. A set
of four of them is around $25 at most auto parts stores or through JC Whitney.

"Now and Zen" is a neat site I just ran across the other day. Lots of cool zen-enhancing
stuff you can get online, like Zen Alarm Clocks and Zen Garden mouse pads. It's worth a
look. Go to -> http://www.denver.net/~nowzen/
Jagbits is an international business; we ship anywhere to anyone with a credit card
(except Cuba.) Because of this, I frequently make use of a currency exchange rate
converter. Need to know how many Bulgarian Levs there are in a Finnish Markka? This
site will tell you: http://www.xe.net/ucc/

Want to know how to make money from your website? (Without selling Jag parts?) This guy
lays it all out for you. Cory Rudl has a huge course on internet marketing and retailing
that's worth its weight in gold. Well, not gold, but it's certainly worth more than
you'll pay for it. Plus, if you buy it, I get a commission! I bought the course and I can
recommend it highly. They even give you a 10-year money back guarantee. Like it or you
lose nothing. Go to http://www.marketingtips.com/t.cgi/29478/
and look it over. I bought
some publications from this guy a few years ago, and I found that he really had his stuff
together. Now he's wrapped up e-commerce for you in a (very big) nutshell.
