Last Monday it was -4 degrees in the Kansas City Area. Yesterday it was 65 and sunny for some of the day. Typical midwest weather. The streets are still pretty wet & salty, so I took advantage of yesterday to clean the road grime off the 911 with some Griot's Garage waterless car wash spray, followed up by another coat of Bead Maker. It was nice working with the garage door open so that I could actually see what I was doing. This is the 'before' picture. Just a nice day.
Thought we might see an "after" pic, maybe with a new sticker?

The 'after' pic will come after another coat or two of Bead Maker. ;) GLAD you brought up the 996 Outpost stickers....now that I am in possession of two, thanks to you :) - I've been wondering about placement. I'm not sure where the best place would be. Rear glass? Tool box? Lunch box? :) Side window..?......


OR: Maybe the tuner look!!!

Fun fact - I used to have a cat named Pasha. My dad is from Alexandria. He told me a pasha was someone like a prince, high ranking official, etc. I thought it was the perfect name for a cat.

When Pasha didn't make it across the road one day, his carcass still looked better than that interior. :lol:
Understand that I’m weird. I would do that interior in a minute. But I also like the 996 headlights, especially early ones with the amber turn signals.

We're all weird in our own ways. Embrace it! I didn't mean to be offensive, just teasing. :mrgreen:

Replaced my 2.5 year old wiper blades with the new Bosch Icon X's. I went with 22A and 21B; perfect fit. They look cheap though...I prefer the Denso Low Profile wiper blades I just put on my GF's lexus.

Ha ha! No offense taken whatsoever! If we were all normal I guess that we would get excited about a new beige Camry...

Well done. By the time I got my Rennline pedal covers in and done, I was ready for a visit to the chiropractor. Agony

Might want to think about getting an under dash creeper for future work.
