What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

Yay, I can post here again! :lol:

We are now in the paint job finalization stage and I did a few things that needed done really bad.

I clay barred every light on the car followed by a gentle session w/ light paint thinner and hand buffed them back to a brilliant gloss.

Here soon I'm going to paint my lower bumper grills a shade darker to hopefully match the XC grill, begin engine bay over spray removal and replace/adjust roof strips/rain diverters.

I also picked up the 5th Comet I forgot at Carlisle yesterday.

took out all the interooler hoses and checked the turbo for shaft play

all the intercooler lines are good.... no rips... turbo has ZERO shaft play.

I did notice that the IAC top hose to the vacuum tree was on but not tight on... could that cause some vacuum/boost leaks?

Most likely. I've been meaning to get some small t-bolt clamps for the IAC hose connections, since I don't trust the OEM clamps on my car anymore.

I threw around 300lbs of stuff in the trunk today and drove across town. Felt great, probably I had just driven a Uhaul truck prior to that :(
