What Did You Do To Your Car Today.


Recommended Posts

What did you use? 3m dinoc? or the real deal?

3M scotchprint, it has a higher gloss then the di-noc and is a bit thinner making it easier to work with, I also used the 3M 94 primer on the curved edges, corners got multiple reliefs cut to get it nice and smooth. Very easy to use with a little patience, hairdryer, squeegee or credit card, sharp razor.

no because you cannot mesh T5 and Pole... too much of a "stretch" if you said "waxed my rocket" that would have been better

What are you raising it to?? I'm just throwing the MBC wide open. (Worse case, the ECU will get pissed and fuel-cut, but the tune should fix that.) I'm really interested to see how far that 15G can

Started it. Drove it.

Also, new driver side axle in and extra control arm in, lets see if this takes care of the popping sound on accel.

The topic is "What did you do to your car TODAY"

NOT "What I would do to my car in the next few months"

I plastic welded the crack in my "new" R bumper...thread to follow on the procedure if anyone cares..

Dave, thats awesome. I hate hate hate fake CF but for a black suede headliner this might be the lazy way out instead of dying everything.

Thank you, it looks much better in person!

I'm redoing mine with regular black headliner mat'l from joann's fabric. I'll still have to paint the handles, and visor's, but I think it will help break it up a bit.

Edit: do believe the sunroof trim will now get the faux CF treatment.

Do it!!!

I'm thinking about it myself since some of my walnut is beat as is the wife's. I can make one good set and I just saw a plain black at the yard so who knows.

Washed it around 4 this afternoon after work, meant to wipe it down, sat down at my father's and fell asleep. :lol:

I did take care of the wheels/jams/windows after I woke up though. B)
