Post Chevron... I...

...made the mistake of going through the automated laser car wash there...

Wash... not so bad. Side bars which keep you from running into the equipment... very bad.

Was so worried about running wheels into the bars I got out after the wash to survey distance.

The front wheels would clear the bars by only 4 inches or so on each side.

The rear wheels would clear the bars by less than 3 inches on each side.

One errant move either way and it would result in something nearly as bad as curb rash... bar rash.

I slowly babied the car out of the car wash stall, heart palpitating. Made it!

Why I did I go there in the first place? I like the underbody wash on entry.

Found an Exxon with a laser wash with same features & no idiotic barriers on each side. Next time.

Hand wash & wax 90% of the time... priceless.

How hard was the install of the new steering wheel. I was thinking of this mod myself. I also have an LS and would like to have the steering wheel be leather trimmed like my OEM Hurst shifter.

Painted my drl bezels metallic blue to match the headlight casings, and got them back in today. Continuing work on my engine cover and trunk corner covers - need a new bit for the dremel before going any further with that.
