What have you done for your Avalon lately?

Vehicle maintenance gear. Mostly Adam's Polishes products.



Incorrect trunk mat and mudguards received earlier this month. Along with wheel locks and rear trunk lid spoiler.



New bits received today. Correct trunk mat and painted mudguard along with windshield visor.


Window tint. 35% color stable 3M on sides and 20% on rear window.

I will stop washing and waxing when I run out of water, good health or motivation. I don't expect any of that to happen soon. My almost 10 year old Maxima looked new when I passed it down to my niece.

2012 Toyota Avalon mud guards

Hello, where did you get the painted mud guards? I found them on ebay for $160 but I believe they should be cheaper. Thanks

I found mine on ebay. They are not cheap but I understand the labor involved with sending them to a paint and body shop. http://www.ebay.com/itm/400267251569...S:1123&vxp=mtr

Thanks. Last year, I bought a set for my 2010 Toyota Camry for $80 on ebay. I just don't get why the Avalon's are so much more.

Enjoy your car, looks very sharp

You're welcome. I don't know why there is a huge price difference either. Thanks for the compliment. I am surely enjoying it. Only have about 600 miles on it so far.

I did not see a choice for painted ones on that website. I was just looking at CF license plate frames today. Seems like they are pricey.

Nice ride! Your car has just about the same things done to/for it as mine does. The funny part is that I'm also a big fan of Adam's Polishes products. Adams was one of my sponsors with my ol' "Project SuperCrew" when I ran Fordtruckworld.com a few years back. Good stuff indeed!

Now, what have I done for my Avalon lately? Well, I drove it through a car wash a few days ago for the first time in months (you mentioned motivation...). I also replace the iPod interface after the one I put in 5-years ago crapped out. Other than that - just a ton of gasoline and 2 oil changes later - I just drive the hell out of it (130k miles and counting).

Thanks. I like your car as well. I hope the drive through car was dd not have brushes beating your paint. I cringe at the thought of going through a car wash with any nice car.

I believe they are different. They are pricey but I don't regret buying them unless someone can show me a link that sells them at a lower price.

I just ordered my Americana wax, some VRT dressing and a gallon of Adam's car shampoo. I will have the whole works then. I will store the supplies inside my house because my garage is not heated or cooled.
