    What did you do to/for your V today?

    Just thought it would be a great way to discuss what members have been doing to their cars recently.

    Today I did an oil change and gave it a wash.

    Adjusted tire pressure down 1 psi front and rear. Drove to/from work, ran a few errands - post office, pharmacy, FedEx to ship an old tire we sold, etc etc. Went WOT in 2nd gear a few times to test grip of new tires. Washed and dry when I got home from work, went over car with instant detail spray - it's been a while and it was nasty. Thought about where to mount my camera to capture the rear wheel(s) while WOT in 2nd gear to monitor for tire slip/loss of traction.

    Went in garage later tonight just to admire the OBM paint and the cool velvet textured rubber side lettering on the Sport Cup 2's sidewall. Its just SO cool looking. Now I don't even like to put on tire dressing as it covers up the cool effect.

    First wash after vinyl and cquartz. Took about twenty minutes. Mostly just dust. But didn't have a good option to remove dust so I washed it.

    Drove it to work and just got home.

    Installed my SRP gas pedal with spacers for easier heel/toe, removed the front bumper for LED DRL's, installed my C/F wrapped trim.
    Plastidipped the grills, fog buckets and shrouds, purchased replacement fasteners for ones missing/broken. Bought a foglight HID kit as well.

    Next up is: repairing the bi-xenon solenoid wire (mine broke inside the headlight), light pipe LED swap, blackhousing headlights, LED signals, D1S bulb swap, clearcoating the pitted fog lenses, installing the mirrormount & door cup clearbra.

    FROM URBAN DICTIONARY:

    Low Hanging Fruit
    The state of being endowed with peaches that drop so close to your ankles that boxers are rendered unrealistic.
    My low hanging fruit require multiple knots to be reasonably set in place.

    While waiting to pick up the king-size box of tampons at the Walgreens drive-thru, I exited the V and shook of all pebbles, armpit hair, boogies, etc... from both driver and passenger front mats.
    Tonight I am thinking of resetting my radio stations so that they are in descending order based on numeric value, as opposed to ascending, which is my norm, may have to program my psyche to accept such due to past practices.
