Washed it at the coin op carwash, went to the junkyard and grabbed some parts. I got a wiring pigtail and the wire cover so I could install the Gentex 177 mirror I have, got a strut tower brace out of a Lexus, a relay for the A/C, a rear bumper cover that is the same color and in better shape than mine, and four 7 spoke factory hubcaps to replace the chintzy aftermarket ones I had on it.

Got a pair of replacement floor mat grommets and hooks, and decided to remove my interior so that I can clean it really well. I'm going to pressure wash the carpets, scrub the seats, and clean all of the plastics.

I did a full detail, washed and vacuumed. Buffed with Maguire's 105 to remove surface scratches from the winter using my Porter Cable XP7424 da polisher and orange pad. Then Maguire's swirl remover and Liquid Glass as my top coat. Polished chrome wheels and applied tire dressing.

Been a while since I've been here - recently changed out my Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring Tires - about 60k miles on them. Got new tires today - Continental TrueContact Touring.

Got some new (used) black Husky Floor Mats for relatively cheap. Anyone want my old ones?

I removed the windshield cowl, cleaned underneath and then installed some screen material to prevent leaves from getting in there https://www.toyotanation.com/forum/1...l#post14083630
