You have to keep in mind the sun beating on the plastic turns it yellow and when you're driving it's like getting sandblasted with all the stuff in the air, sand, bugs, rocks ant etc your clear headlights turn opaque.


Paint protectio0n film is the way to go BUT with the contours of the headlights it's a PITA to apply UNLESS you take out your headlights and have a friend hit it with a hair dryer/heat gun as you stretch it.

Finally got my car inspected. Also got an oil change done while it was there, since I only got the car in June and I don't know when it was last changed.

Please post pics of the installed JDM black trim (and part numbers) sounds like it's going to look great!

Yesterday drove to Foxwoods casino in CT and back to LI to catch dinner, a show, and a (very) little gambling. Drag on the way up but tons of fun on the way back except for the number Civic owners wanting to race (not even SIs!?!?). Two highlights: got a couple of cans of Superior's Cover All from O'Reilly's (people on the 'Net swear this is the shiniest/longest lasting tire dressing -and cheap too!). I'll try it tomorrow weather permitting and got to partially try Meguiar's Ultimate Fast Finish -> spray on wax that provides a nice shine and keeps beading for months (we'll see).

Well, believe it or not, I washed my FR-S today. Yep, the whole thing, even the wheels, all in one session.

That may very well be the last time I wash my car. Why? Because it ain't fun no more. Save your negative comments unless you are over 75 years of age.

So, how will my car get washed? I have two choices:

* teach my 10 and 12 year old granddaughters how to wash it

OR

* take it up to the Brown Bear car wash


Comments?

This.
If I could have my grandpa alive to do it, I'd wash his car. Now I'm sad.
