Carbon fiber wrap is the cancer that's killing everything. Don't do it, it doesn't look real, it looks pathetic.

Honestly. Between the escape and the focus, have her ook at the Mazda CX5.

Started washing my wheels real well, found one to be pealing, got pissed and ...





I can't get the camera to pick up on just hot bright the color is, too pissed to care.
It's the neon green Plasti Dip. Figure If I'm going to paint them may as well go wild.

Today: Changed out the fuel filter, spark plugs, oxygen sensors, wagon hatch lift supports, front sway bar end links (factory ones were very sloppy so went with the Moog greaseable ones), replaced the air pump valve (yay PZEV vehicles), and an oil change. Also checked the compression while I had all the spark plugs out, 150PSI across the board.

Before (from July 2nd to a couple weeks ago): Bought the car, replaced the drivers door power window switch cluster, installed auto-dim mirror with temperature and compass display, replaced all the tires (Yokohama YK580 195/65R15) and had a 4 wheel alignment done, installed a JVC KD-A95BT stereo and Clarion 6x8 speakers, installed tach cluster with the original cluster's mileage cloned to it, removed broken glass bits from rear passenger door while installing speakers (window was apparently broken and replaced before I got the car but broken bits not cleaned out), replaced missing passenger side headrest (missing when I bought the car), replaced a number of the tiny 2721 bulbs in the cluster, shifter, and heater control lighting), replaced the HVAC control bezel, tightened the drivers mirror hold down bolt, installed "factory" fog lights and removed the aftermarket fog lights which didn't work anyways, replaced a broken front wheel stud, replaced a missing wheel center cap, and installed a Curt trailer hitch receiver (about a 20-30 minute install including unboxing and getting the tools together, didn't even need to jack the car up, and excluding wiring which I still have to do).

Future plans: Rear disk brake upgrade and fix wagon hatch wiring.
