We have fog as thick as pea soup around here from time to time, and have never seen fog thick enough to cause us to bump into curbs or off-road.

Finally got my new Tein lowering springs in so........ I dropped it and put my new Rote G-Force 18x9.5 in gold on today. I have been waiting a long time for this to happen and am so pleased with the outcome.

Mounted tires to rims...and put the black OZ's 18x8 w/ RE01r's back on the car.

Removed the vinyl from my front bumper (evo x look).

Washed the car and did a quick hand wax.

Last but not least.....Oil Change, tire rotation, and alignment.

Gettin' ready for the Auto-X @ El Toro next weekend!

This. Well, I ran it up to 5500-6k. Funny thing was, it ran much more smoothy afterwards. Wanky piston rings. Will be glad to get rid of those this summer.

Also gave it a full detail... claybar, wax... the white is actually showing reflections, which is incredible. Normally you don't see them. Gonna rain tomorrow, but I don't care.

The Foz had a low tire again. Put air in it. Dusted the car off and ran over it with quick detailer. Then my sister drove it down to Corinth.

We washed the '03 X & the '95 Neon Sport a couple day ago. We've been going over all the plastic parts with Mother's Back-to-Black. Finished one bottle & started on another! After being in the weather all winter, the plastic takes a beating. On the positive side, when the Mother's Back-to-Black is applied, you can instantly see the improvement.

Never got to my '07 FSXT & the weather is changing to rain... again... it is Oregon!

Perhaps it's the same way that guy in San Diego says his runaway Prius was really out of control...
Marine Layer....fog...moisture on the window....in a hurry to work....you get the point.

Switched tires today... time for the winter tires to come off. They did really well in the snow, and I don't want to wear them down any more than necessary.

Seriously? Or are you just joking?

I looked at my mods list, looked at the Forester, said "BALLS!", walked upstairs to play on the PS3.
