Took off the Rear Fascia to see how easy it was. I'm buying a black one and wanted to match up the bolt pattern. Also tomorrow is major detail day. Wash, clay bar, wash, polish, wax, tire shine, change over to dog dish center caps for a little bit, and a really good vacuum cleaning. Estimated time to complete : 4 hours.

I thought you didn't like the way the black rear fascia looked ? (I think I showed you how mine looks, since our cars are almost identical, minus the rear chrome) ?
Glad you decided to go that route ! For some reason, I just LOVE a black rear end lol My 2005 P74 I even had the rear switched out to the back fascia as well. Actually, I had it professionally painted gloss black (the chrome under the lights and trunk, as well as the portions next to the reverse lights). Cost quite a bit, but I'm sure the new owner is happy with it \:\) )

Anyway, today I washed all the windows on my 07, and cleaned the inside of the windshield (hasn't been done in at least 4-5 months). We have a meet coming up on Sunday, so I'll also be giving it a full detail this coming Saturday as well.

You guys do realize it's Tuesday, right? I mean, who works on their cars on a week day? I saw mine when leaving for class on my way to my T/A. It's really dirty and could use a wash.

To me, there is nothing better than working on your car when its nice a cool out, today and tomorrow are going to be that way, that's just how the cookie crumbles!

On the way home from work, spent a whopping $7.99 on a new air filter. In my mind, it now gets better mileage... yet haz MOAR POWWWERR!!!!!!!!1!

Sorry, things got weird there, momentarily.

Drove to school, then ate lunch in it during my break between classes, then drove home after class, then posted this really long sentence about it on CVN.

Tomorrow I'm going to vacuum it out again, eating lunch every day since the start of the semester has generated enough crumbs for it to bug me (but you won't find a single wrapper or fast food bag anywhere in my car).

Finished putting new rear axle seals/bearings in, hoped nothing else would break for a awhile, went for a short blast down I-77, checked for any diff/axle leaks, cleaned the windshield and filled it up with gas. Tomorrow wash & wax...

Found out it's going on the frame machine next week. Made me tear up a little bit.

Drove it to work and back. Realized how dirty it is and in need of a bath. That'll get done tomorrow.
