Applied more Leatherique to the seats last night. Checked tire pressure before I left for work this morning. Will clean the seats with Prestine Clean when I get home this evening. Won't do much to it tomorrow. Saturday is window tinting, possibility of wrapping the black trim, oil and air filter change, and interior cleaning/detailing. Tuesday is full exterior detailing with minor correction.


...and the $$$ goes flying out of my pocket....

You obviously never used a higher end detector... you will end up throwing that shet into the ocean after using an Escort or a V1...



I had my alarm activated yesterday and waxed the living crap out of my rear bumper.

I think the lighting mods I made (fogs+highs and corner delete) are technically illegal, so I'll have to change those back before getting the car inspected this year.
Could you point me to a thread with details of what your using to do this coding? I would like to do a few of these things you've listed...

Thanks!

I think this is the first car I've only had tinted at 35%, always got 20% in my younger years. I'm thinking the tint I stripped late last summer (that turned purple) was probably 35% too (on the car when I bought it) because this looks pretty much the same as before the tint turned purple...

It'll darken up a little when I get the new windshield in (they'll tint 60% before installation).

EDIT: Wow, 18's are looking small in this pic...
