Spent time on the wife's whip washing, claying, polishing, waxing. I hate SUV's. (especially black ones)

I finally finished all the bushing replacements today on my rx7. Here is the pile of old bushings:



One of the bushings shot out with enough force to crack my bucket that was waiting to catch it.

Front end:
-Upper control arm
-Lower control arm

Rear end:
-Pillow ball bushings x6
-Upper control arm
-Lower control arm
-Sway bar mounts

I know I'm forgetting a few and it doesn't seem like that many. However, removing and replacing individual pieces of suspension work takes a long time. I also changed my oil today - 9 total quarts of amsoil.

Tomorrow is brake fluid, transmission and differential fluids then its ready for hyperfest!

Washed my car and realized that I need to lower the front about 1/4 inch.

Today was maintenance day. Pads and rotors on the wagon, then got a solid brake fluid bleed. Also replaced the O2 sensor that was on the way out and cleaned the air filter. Boring, but the brake bleed was perfect and the pedal is nice and firm again.

Plasti dipped the car tonight and fixed the rust bubble on the rear quarter panel. A lot of work done today and will be finishing it up later on today and finish getting ready for OC AWD.

How do apply the plastidip? I've seen aerosol cans which makes sense but I would imagine you use an airgun for the larger cans. I'm giving this some serious thought for the summer

I bought 4 gallons of pre-mixed dip and a wagner power painter and went to town. It's a lot of work to clean up but if you can keep the coats even and the material flowing evenly it's not bad. Mine came out decent for the first time painting anything. [IMG][/IMG]

As even as you spray it. I have a couple friends with near flawless dips and it was only their first attempt. Worst comes to worst buy the extra kit (SUV) so you have more paint and if you mess up let it dry and peel the section off.

10 hours of detailing by hand leads to a nice shiny car. Front bumper needs a repaint, but the rest of it shines great.



...sorry about the fisheye, my only half decent camera is a GoPro.

Installed new hawk performance ceramic pads and DBA T3 rotors up front. Everything went pretty smooth "knocks on wood". Pedal feel is so nice, I wish I had done it sooner!

But.... you're right. It's pretty ricey. I did enjoy parking it right in front of my building this morning though, and the "high 5" I got from a 55 year old woman in my office that just had breast cancer.
