Headlight Polish.. again

I did a quick polish of the headlights again. It was starting to yellow a bit.. still looks good but I could notice it. So a quick polish just before washing the car. 2000 grit followed by a yellow pad. Both with the headlight polishing compound then a hand buff with a microfiber cloth.

Nice and bright again!

Replaced Intake Filter

237,885 km

Was cleaning the garage and came across my stash of HKS PowerFlow (Green) Filters.  Decided it was time to replace…

Last replaced April 2018 at 199,553 km. Old filter element didn’t look that bad considering the mileage!

That headlight bolt needs a cleanup.

Took the car to Dent Craft for some PDR.  Chad did a great job on a difficult body line dent. He also pulled a couple small dings on the right rear wheel well panel N/C.  Excellent work and Recommended.
