Yes by hand.

Everything over there I had since last year except the two new bottles of showtime spray, carnauba wax and the clay bars which was around $40.

Lexol was pricey at about $10 a bottle, $8 or so for the Nu Finish and vinyl and rubber cleaner.

Alas, I am an idjit. After getting my eport back from SouthPaw on car options and records I learned I have natural brown leather and NOT leatherette. Which means the past 4 years are w/o leather care. Luckily I am very gentle on my interior and only clean it with soft soft brushes so the damage isn't too bad. I thought I was seeing single seam stitching but it's been double the whole time

Is Lexol really that good? We have a mountain of it because of our saddles (and it gets used in the old RR) but it leaves that shiny look....

Eh, I used it about twice last summer. My input so far is that it's good at cleaning up the crap that builds up on the leather and that's it, but I will reassess when I redo it.

You better have kept the wagon. I LOVE AW and wagons. Mix the two and I am filled with longing.

I just made 2 photos and a flicker vid of my custom shields.

Wired my AL Bi-Xenon shutters today. LCM contact bushings 2 and 36 for Driver and Passenger side respectively. I routed them through the DME box and directly to the Driver's side, but for the Passenger side I ran them out the same hole in the DME box, but then routed them through the Weather Striping on the sides and the windshield cowl, then down to the the Passenger side shutter plug. Total cost for this was $13 bucks at the dealer.

Now that they are functional, I have my inner bowls coded to come on when the Highs are on. I can see for days. It's unreal what I've been missing for two years while I drove around with Halogens and pitted lenses. Next step is to get new lenses, ZKW Projector lenses and AE's to complete the look.

Thanks! I like 'em. So far they ride and handle great. They balanced very easy and steering is straight with no vibrations at all.
