Cleaned the inside of my hood for the first time ever,looking at the new engine and it looks so good but the nasty hood just didn’t set well with me,got some purple cleaner stuff and got it looking really good,may even try and buff it out.

Ordered some 4" non-resonated exhaust tips for the Marauder a few days ago.

They just got delivered, according to the message on my phone.

Guess I'll have something to do on the car when I get it from storage in April.

Picked up some stuff at Eastwood, unexpectedly found Shadow Blue interior dye laugh So now I can properly paint my console. Well, not now, now. When it's warm.

Checked the tire pressures, adjusted the car cover, and added light weight wind straps.

Replaced my cruise control switch (I accidentally scrubbed the letters off the old one). And tried to replace my cracked dash bezel, but found out the one I got from the junk yard was trimmed for an aftermarket head unit, so the OEM radio wouldn't go back in. Going back to LKQ tomorrow.

Grocery run. My AC compressor isn't running, but it might just be too cold.

Downgraded the weekly fluid/bulb check to monthly, since washer fluid is the only one that goes down anymore.

Fed the P7B. One of the rare tanks where I've averaged over 20mpg. (this car is thirsty)

Is it outside?
It's in a car port that is usually facing away from windage, but occasionally currents somehow blow the cover up over the roof of the car ? The straps are very light weight and have plastic coated hooks that I hook to the wheel spokes ... and adjust just enough to keep the cover on it.
