Bought new valve stem caps and fixed my wiper blade. Waiting on my STI cluster to return from TacomaSpeedometer can't wait to install it!

I went and got a sheet of it from the hardware store, measure the area, cut it to fit (you need metal sheers), painted it black, install. Simple.

It works very well against bugs. I have never tried it in a sports car before, but I'm thinking it will do well against rocks.

I also used some metal ac tape on the edges to protect any wiring it could come in contact with.

Just finished my road trip to and from Miami. 3000+ miles and it ran like a champ with 4 people, packed to the brim with luggage. 20 +/- hours of continuous driving. Only stopping for gas and driver change. I love my car!!

P.S. Sunoco 93 octane fuel in Gainesville, Fl (just off 75) sucks for mileage. Filled up the tank and I barely made 20 avg. mpg while with other brands like Shell or Chevron, I was making 23. Both averaging around same speeds, 75 MPH.

Last two days: installed short shifter, painted grill black, installed front lip, and installed h&r springs in just the front two corners. Also, replaced front rotors on my lady's tsx. Tired
