Seen this thread for a long time, but never posted to it (I think). Thought I'd fix up a few small niggles one sunny late autumn afternoon whilst working-from-home in Canberra:
Tweaked the driver's door alignment. Closes much easier now.
Cleaned the windscreen washer nozzles. 3 jets each side instead of one now. Need a slightly thicker diameter wire to do a complete job as the jets are a bit askew as holes not perfectly clear, at one point they were doing a "Ghostbusters" and "crossing the streams!"
And also done recently:
Tweaked the driving light adjustment- actually illuminates the road now rather than trying to annoy the interstellar neighbourhood, find possums in trees or pretending I'm a taxi.
Pushed out a dimple on the corner of the front bumper, passenger side. Used a heat gun and an old wooden curtain rod with a ball end. Took about 15 minutes and a lot of massaging. The paint is a little stressed and some cracks but it looks pretty decent. The hardest part was putting the fender liner back in place.
I clay barred the years neglected paint and used some rubbing compound on some particularly tough spots. I didn’t have a chance to polish today, 18-year old girl’s car needed a little detailing. Both cars are looking decent now.
Today I ran my car through a crappy touchless car wash, then toweled her down and actually cleaned the wheels for the first time in...longer than I want to admit, then went for a bit of a drive up my local mountain. On the way back down it was like going through a car show. Heaps of Subies, Evos, Bimmers, Hondas, and even what had to be a Corvette club. It was a really nice day out, and it was nice to get a chance to push the car a bit again (GF is not a fan of really hard turns, so I went solo).
Changed all interior lights, license plate lights, and reverse lights and also the front parking lights to LED, bought from Amazon, what a change! after it was done, everything looked beautiful! except for those horrible yellow main and fog lights... So I ordered LED's for all the front of the car! cannot wait for them to get to me!.
Put on plate frames, removed fog light grilles for painting... thought about how it would look if I patched up the front guard and painted it as well.... I think I would look bizarre.... I kind of like that
