I upgraded the nav on my Dynavin. Tomorrow....hoping to clay it a bit and get some wax on it before the Colorado weather. Was going to put the tow hook on, but I think with the new rims and tires....it will stay in the garage for most of the winter.

Actually, I should be paying more attention to my Jeep XJ. It is my dedicated winter vehicle and never lets me down in the snow.

Day off today so here's what I did.

1. Got oil change with Royal Purple.
2. Made a clutch stop.
3. Sharpie mod.
4. Refinished sunglasses/ cigarette tray. It was horrible. Wish i would have took a before picture. Turned out as nice as the New center console I got in yesterday. Here's a picture of that. If anyone has a question how to do this, pm me.

Car pulled a no-start in front of the mechanic's today (while I was bugging him about other ****)... so I paid him to do the fuel pump since he had already done the diagnostic work.

Installed the supposed short shift from an M3, waste of time as it is basically the same as the present one.

Synchomax in the tranny and Redline gear oil in the diff. Along with the new parts and everything being lubed it does shift nice.

Wrapped the interior trim with brushed aluminum and in the next few days I'll be swapping out the boots for alcantara ones and a new shift knob.

Also started to paint a few things in the engine bay gloss black. Should be finishing tomorrow afternoon

Washed it yesterday, and put some 303 Aerospace on all the carbon fiber parts. Just happy to have a clean car after 3 weeks of not washing it. Changing the oil in a few weeks. My work hours have changed so I do not have as much time as I used to...just take it little by little. Still have to get that dang first aid box installed.

Cleaned out the glove box though so the SA XD 45 fits in there nice with both 13 round mags. Found some old CD's in there also....plus just old papers, insurance stuff.....had tons of stuff in there.
