Default Summer Project List

I have so much work to do to my car for the summer:

- Claybar and Polish.
- Touch up all the paint chips.
- Get fenders and doors adjusted. (Doors are rubbing on the fenders.)
- Adjust driver-side exhaust tip. (It'* crooked.)
- Repaint spoiler. (Clearcoat is coming off.)
- Get lowering springs installed.
- Get alignment after springs are installed.
- Get thorough inspection for leaks. (Just worred about the recent engine fires.)

I have a lot to do. I think there is something wrong with the paint for my year because it chips off easier than anything.

I actually just posted this to organize my thoughts.

I think the leak inspection should be first on the list, man.

The list is in no particular order, but when I get my next oil change, which is soon, my dad and I will look things over while the car is in his shop.
