Oil change for the black one.

A little painting on the yellow one.
Difficult to get a straight crisp edge with a paint pen.
Not sure if I like it.

I clay bared the a couple of sides, still more to do. Highway stripes were getting pained and apparently I caught the overspray. Lots of elbow grease but it's coming off.

Hard parts is going to be the cladding.  :needhug:

Fixed the connection on my passenger side DRL - it would work for about 30 mins, then go out again, and it wasn't the bulb.  Pulled the bulb and bent out the wire pins, so they stuck out further from the bulb, then did the same inside the socket.  Coated with dielectric grease and it's as good as new!

Also re-wired my sail panel LEDs...  water got into the first set of wiring (only the connections by the trailer harness, not the wiring going up to the LEDs themselves!).  Wrapped in electrical tape, then heatshrink, then more tape.  If water gets in that, I'm gonna install some sheet metal under the AV....

Full hand wash, followed by a beautiful application of Meguiars liquid wax, then added a new bugshield and finally applied a new coat of rainx to the windows.

Bug and tar removed and hand washed the EXT today.

Sometime this weekend I must have ran over a large bucket of tar.

That stuff was down both sides and even up on the tailgate.

When I had it all washed up and dried off I took the back window out, opened the sunroof and all of the windows, dropped the midgate and just drove around and enjoyed the great weather.

Outstanding.
