Most likely thanksgiving break is when everything is happening.

New strut mounts
New fuel filter
Wrap some interior in vinyl
Change the blue SRI to red
Sound may cause free
Oil drain when needs new oil
Plastidip and glossify the roof

That all is going to happen.

Gee, I wonder who gave you two of those ideas. You're going to love the Fumoto valve. I had one installed on the truck awhile back and it definitely was a lot easier. The one I have for the truck is able to have a hose attached to it so I can drain it down into a pan a lot easier. The one I got for the Miata is the same way. You will also get to see how the Plasti-Dip turned out on my hardtop tomorrow as well. Just make sure when you do spray it, that it's not on a windy day lol.

Hey now. One idea was from you. Which was the valve, and yeah I think I am, it may take longer to drain but saves the hassle of warm oil making a mess on te floor and running down my arm. My focus is lowered and just wanted to be safe, so no hose fitting. Not a big deal though.

I've been wanting to do the roof for a while now. Before you lol. That idea sorta came from Luis. When I do it, it will be in the heated barn at about 65 degrees. No wind issues there.

Looks good man! You'll have to show me how to wrap I have a lot of interior pieces and the spoiler that I want to do but I'm a little nervous. Glad you could make it out yesterday also!

I see meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. lol

It was great seeing you yesterday. I can't wait to see what else you do to the car. I have the sneaky suspicion that your car will look even more different by the time we have meets again next year.

Haha yeah. I noticed that earlier. Couple people were in my way lol.

Oh yeah, it will be different all right. Maybe not for SIF, but for FocusFest it will for sure.

The vinyl feels awesome to the touch, much better than the dip that is on there. I also did some of the caps under the hood. Going for a red and black look, no other colors.

The vinyl got easier the more you worked with it. First try was a disaster.
-cut out piece large enough to cover what you want.
-I found it better to heat the vinyl first before peeling the back off, makes it more malleable.
-peel off backing, place object in the middle.
-Easiest for me to start in the middle and work my way side to side from one way to another.
-keep heating it with a heat gun or hair dryer to manipulate easier, keeps wrinkles out as well.
-once you see how much you need, trim off the extra, leaving 3/8" for an edge.
-heat the edges really good and then hold down with hand for 20 seconds, after that, find any more wrinkles, get them out.
-install in car
Only needed scissors, vinyl, heat source, something to wrap.
