    Show me what you got. I'll happily buy the tools. It'll cost me like $400 to have all three cleaned

    Gooch, where can you recommend in halifax to get the supplies? If there's a place in St. John's that can work too. Definitely need to do mine.

    is that kit better than just buying the bag for 30 bucks and a sprayer and cleaning product locally?
