Washed and oiled my VERY dirty TRD intake air filter, as it has been long overdue. Noticed a nice improvement in induction noise, exhaust noise, and throttle response.

Good show.

Thanks for the reminder, I should do that someday, it's been about 3 years now.

I do believe that I have some coal oil and 30 weight, non-detergent oil around here some where.

Oh, screw the MAF, if it can't take a joke!

1. White Vinegar. My wife keeps a gallon to add to the wash or use as a natural cleaner. Soaked a hand towel and started rubbing...cleaned with water and still see the same pattern. No improvement

2. Dawn Dish soap. Rinsed the hand towel...liberal amount of liquid soap...rub in circles...horizontal strokes...vertical strokes...rinse....ugh...

3. Really frustrated at this point...so I go with the brillo pad...Wet the glass and start to do circles...this feels promising...as I work to new areas the pad grabs on the first stroke and the following stroke feels easier...once the entire area has been worked I rinse and dry...pattern is still there but maybe...just maybe faded.

Cleaned windshield wiper blades

I give up. Waiting til my next early morning dew-commute to see if it has improved...on to the high beam bulb modification.

Last week I modified the low beams using a H11 bulb...It is noticeably better...at the time there was only one 9011 bulb for the high beam mod...so I put it off til I found two...different Autozone and $50 later I pull out a hack saw blade and needle nose pliers...compare existing bulb to new one and see I have to remove a heavy 1/8 of top tab. Make cut with hack saw (holding blade in my hand) and break away the waste with needle nose pliers. They install without issue.

Night comes...grab a 32oz cup of water...splash on the FR-S windshield...hit the windshield wipers and pray...promising results blades seem to cut the moisture...I'll have to wait til the morning dew point is close to the actual temperature to see if there is improvement.

Head to the country two lanes to get away from street lights...hit the high beams...I'm pleased with the improvement of the bulb swap-mod compared to stock...Easy no pulling off the front clip to remove headlight buckets and putting them in the oven etc. etc.
clay bar.

Bar Keepers Friend -- hands down the best windshield cleaner I have used. Costs a whole $2 and leaves the windshield absolutely clean.

Got around to removing the "BRZ" off of this and printing it out. Satisfied and only took a hour to print.
