Oh yeah... warmed up enough to put these on. Bought them off a member here. Easy to put on.. protect the sides from road rash and other drivers from rooster tails lol

Fitted some Firestone Firehawk Indy 500s. Got a damn good deal on them but mostly I'm just happy not to be driving on winters anymore.

So far so good. Make sure you send in the $100 mail in rebate from NTD.

If you want to be extra frugal, you can order two from two different Kal Tires and get that price down another $100 (until March 31)

Gave her a long overdue wash (well, yesterday). The pollen's been nuts here lately, every car has a lime-green haze on it.

Fell in love with the "magic eraser" product. It was able to finally get off some set-in grime on the back of the car that nothing else could. Also makes quick work of minor scuffs and stubborn bugs.

While I was washing it, a woman walking her dog down the street told me "I love clean white cars. They look sticky, like Elmer's glue."

Put on my summer rims and tires on Saturday and gave her a nice wash. I believe it was close to 60 degrees outside and sunny.

It is now snowing today (monday 4/2/18). About 3-4 inches of snow on the ground. When will winter end???

I just washed my car on Saturday as well, had to do it twice to get everything off. This better be the last snow we get this season.

The other day i removed my under-seat trays form my plaid seat, in prep for install on the leather seats i bought recently. I was going to use pop rivets again to attach the support bracket but im thinking some well applied zip ties would be good enough. especially since im unsure which size pop rivet was used first go around. BTW drilling those out was a PITA.

The leather seats i bought have power lumbar that isnt working, so ill be researching how to fix that. Still need to clear the airbag lights - VCDS didn't do the trick so ill check the connections again and then disconnect the battery to see if that works. If you know how to enable the power lumber, hook a dude up
