  • Karate Kid - Wax On.... Wax Off?

    Thanks to a good friend, and a well placed kick in the tail... I took a day from my vacation to wash/claybar/wax my car today. It was the first step in what I hope will be an effort to really give the car a full blown detail this summer.

    I was pleased with the overall outcome. Next is deciding what new wheels to use to replace these after the summer ends.... Finally grown tired of the mis-matched colors, and the skinny 215 tires. 17x8(+) and 235(minimum) is this winters goal.

    Enjoy... snapped these near my house. Totally un-edited because my Photoshop crashed. Just resized using Windows Paint. :barf:



















    Oh, and here is what shares the garage with the M3... new toy this spring. First brand new vehicle I've ever purchased.

        6:45pm... a tad early for the sunset I wanted. :( Had to get home for the nice dinner that was being cooked though.

                  Ha. Surely you jest. I will send some of my motivation along in the package I'm mailing to you though.

                            Yeah I forgot to comment on the SV, I love the naked bikes too reminds me of a more modern cafe style.

                            Chris, if I make it out there we can ride too...
