ITR111- Have you tried the new Mother's SpeedClay2.0? I was skeptical at first, but very easy to use and does not scratch the panels. Just use rinse water (tap water) after all the shampoo and grit is washed off the car.

I downloaded the latest HU map firmware (Rel_U1.18.38.50 NA_CAN_MEX) and installing onto my USB flash drive right now.

I don't know if this is just for maps or if there is update on the operating system, but I hope it fixes the random CarPlay drop-outs I've been having since day one.

Will report back later..

I just checked the vitals and added washer fluid (my WRX and my wife's car) today as it snowed here and roads are a salty mess. Decided to just stay in.

I always feel like a sitting duck while driving in bad weather.

Good job waterguy.

For me, found where the rattle was coming from on my WRX near the steering column.
Will fix once it warms up.

Got a super deal on a new pair of authentic STI side diffusers today. Will install on my STI soon.

My cars aren't all new but I too like keeping my engine bay very clean..!

For me, watched a video on how to install the factory door moldings so that I can remove them off my STI (to confirm it's just adhesive they used). My car came with them from the factory and it just makes the side of the car look too busy especially with the lower side diffuser that I will be installing soon. Those things are so useless too.

if you couldnt tell from the fujitusbo exhaust, i like buying old things for cheap and restoring them.

The wheels i paid for on christmas were finally delivered a few days ago. i spent 6 hours yesterday trying to restore them as best as i could but permanent damage had already set in. I was only able to finish two yesterday.







My shoulder and arm are way to sore to do the other two today, and i already had to shovel a foot of snow off my driveway so i took the day off to recoop. Ill prob get bored shortly, pull the car out, move the engine stand into the middle of the garage and wash down the used engine i received with some gunk brand engine degreaser and a soft bristle brush. Then i can start the timing belt service on it

Switched my turbo Baja over to Rotella t5 ultra with a pint of Ron Fredrickson zink additive.

Fixed the linkage on my wipers that popped off and replaced the washer motor. I also changed the oil.

Had a complete detailing done and installed my new shift knob. Not too much, but a clean car sure is nice to drive.
