Hmmm, well I'll keep an eye on the paint. I guess the worst case is that I get to paint it again and do a better job with touch up

Got the cat back exhaust finished up today, sounds perfect (not too loud to upset the wife) and I definitely like the quad chrome tips better than the black rectangles.


On the plastic engine cover note, I also bought some merlot colored paint awhile back just have to stop being lazy and get it painted up and put on. Weather has been rainy or cold lately so motivation has been low.

Added a video of the LED Headlight (low and high beam) installation. I'm pretty happy with them. They are actually brighter in real life than on the video. I guess the camera iris cut it down a bit on my cell phone.

That warning sign is awesome
I used to also put one on my windows as well

Warning Vertical Doors
Open Out until you feel resistance then lift up

When closing, lower the door, all the way, then push inwards.

The techs always seemed to respect them.

Thanks GJinNY. I'll have more videos of different stuff I do soon.

I hope you're wrong about the dust in the fans. Time will tell

The refurbished Kenwood stereo (DDX373BT) that I got from Crutchfield ended up being a bust. Multiple things were not working on it. Crutchfield quickly sent out the latest version (DDX374BT), this time a new unit. I got it installed last night, and it is working great. The sound is incredible. I like the addition of Spotify.
Now I just need to figure out how everything works.

Ripped out the insulation that was on the engine itself last night, going to get the sheet on the underside of the hood out soon as well, just very pressed for time.
