Can't believe what happened to me on Friday. A very bad morning. It'll take a little more than Dr. Color chip to fix. Photos to come.

The Mistress will be in the shop for a bit. I know she's in good hands.

I ordered a few extras so she'll look better than new when I get her back.

1st Mechanical car wash experience

So I got a car wash certificate for a deluxe car wash at Kwik Car Wash in Lansing.

They've been around since the 60's. If it's a sunny day, this car wash is always busy. I was skeptical but I happend to meet the owner and he calmed my fears and took time to talk with me about their process.

I was pleasantly surprised.



My car is so glossy, it looked new. I still have the micro scratches from three years of daily driving but it looks awesome. It saved me a lot of time too.

Low-Light

I ordered a front lip splitter from K2 Motor - www.k2motor.com.
It was pretty inexpensive and here' what you get:

A warped useless piece of urethane
I tried to contact them several time but never got resolution.
Careful what you buy. Go with What you know.

Got my wheels back from Discount Tire. They were damaged when they mounted the new tires, but they went over and above to make things right.

The wheels were refinished and painted.
