Washed it for the first time since I bought it! They are fast and easy to wash. I even got both of my buckets out to use.

install 2 led strips into the back reflector to make them work as parking and brake light, mod and relocated the stock intake pipe behind the bumper so it can take more cold air directly.

I had to get a quick short spin during lunch break. It is just too fun driving the thing. It is getting more fun that I can push it harder now with few more miles on the odometer.

Painted my injen intake arm and lugnuts today. I'm really happy with the color itself, but for some reason there is a bunch of specs and rough spots in the finish, almost as if dust got in the paint... So this may end up being re-done really soon.
what type of paint and where did you get it.

Today, I took it to a body shop to get an estimate on repairs. A lady swerved into my lane and hit my car on Friday last week :'(. While damage wasn't excessive, it's still sad. Estimate by my insurance ran to about $1800 (luckily it wasn't my fault), including replacing one of the rims.

Anybody know a good body shop here in Southern California? I get to pick one but I don't really have experience with body shops. Maybe one that will do some minor work on the car as part of the "repair"? ;)

Let me know soon. Thanks.
