Default Washed my car, took some pictures...

Nothin special. Just got a wild hair up my *** today after class and decided it was a good idea to finally wash the car on this unusually warm january day.

It had been at least 4 months, maybe 5 since the last wash. I should have taken before/after shots.

It needs a wax bad. Also needs the bumpers, mirrors and finish panel re-painted.

Hopefully the weather is as nice for some of you as it is for me!

on each headlight, there is a shroud held on by four screws. Take them off. Then there are four 8mm bolts that hold the headlight cover on. Loosen those and make them even with the hood. If you cant get it just right, they can be bent a little bit very easily.

Car looks good. Seems we are in the same boat. I hate washing mine because its all killed when I look at the faded front bumper, faded and cracked beltline molding and the swirls and dent on my hood. Damn classic red!!! I hope mine has paint soon. Looks pretty good otherwise.

Ya i know about the headlight thing, done it, never stays.

The exterior isn't in the greatest shape unfortunately. But hey, i dont give a **** about door dings or freeway damage to the bumper and hood.

Thanks for the compliments
