Default Cleaned her up a bit...

Finally got a half way decent day, so I decided to take some SOS pads to the rims to clean em up a bit. Half way through, I realized that I didn't have an outdoor hose (I just moved into this apartment in February). Needing to rinse her off, I took her to the Magic Wand up the road, where I decided to just wash the whole thing since I had to pay for it anyway.






And the reason for going in the first place...

after almost 45 mins on this rim alone, I finally got all the brake dust out of there. I still gotta tape off and repaint the black, and hopefully this weekend I'll be picking up some red 'high temp' to hit those calipers.

Looks very nice. I like the heat extractors on the hood. It adds a nice subtle touch.

Yeah this summer I'm going to redo the back windows. When I first got her you could see the last owner tried (and failed) with the tint film from walmart. Now the drivers side has (peeling) tint on it and the passengers side doesn't.
