Holy :poo:! That looks good. I wish I could spend 9 hours on mine and get that. But the clear coat is peeling off anything that faces remotely up.
Although I can't imagine spending 9 hours wet sanding anything.

:eek:

Steve " a91what " has done it again. My injector pulse widths were way off causing the car to foul the plugs when cold starting. I had noticed a little richness but failed to mention it. The issue came from the base tune I downloaded from DIYautotune. This car has never started so well.

Steve teleported into my laptop and fixed the issue. Dusty hasn't started in a few weeks. New plugs and the fixed tune and here we are.

This is the first time Dusty and Magnetica have been outside to play together. Had to run Dusty around the neighborhood.

Papa Smurf is back there hanging out, too. Showing off the system that attracts all the kids for more candy. Lol

No big updates. My oldest turned 19 saturday so he was with me all weekend. I pointed out the neighbors calypso 4 banger to him ( would've bought it for him )... but he wants an 03 04 mustang v6. He is really in love with the new edge mustangs. ( the younger generation...)

Nothing else has changed....got the windows tinted on the s550 and have been looking at some different wheels.

Dish washer blew up and ruined the hardwood in the kitchen.....strut mount broke on the 08 taurus...money money money....

I feel ya. We just bought new flooring for the entire main level of our house. My truck needed new front brakes and front wheel bearings as well. All said and done, there went $3700 in a weekend. My car has also been on the back burner.

This is all I did today....just covered the vacuum line that runs to my manual boost controller and secured it to my sink pipe 90° bend.

It's the little things sometimes...
