    Why not? There is a thread in all of the other sections. Post pics if you got them.

    Me? I put in weathertechs this week, gave it a good wash and detail, and I bought some Novus plastic polish that I am going to use to clean up the PO's scratches all over the wood grain--center console, shifter, steering wheel, etc.

    I changed out the stock fog light bulbs to LEDs. I wanted to try to match the HID color as much as possible. I got the JDM ASTAR H16 bulbs from Amazon...they look pretty good. Not 100% matching, but much better than the stock yellow looking bulbs.

    I put 4,800 miles on her driving from CLT to CO and back on a hunting trip ... OK, it was actually 1,898 miles over 2.5 days out ... 0 miles over 3.5 days ... and 1,865 miles over two days back ...

    I installed a cartridge style block heater and ordered a set of blizzaks for my LX. Might install battery and oil pan heaters as well. Ready for driving home for the holidays where it is pretty much assured to be wayyyyy below zero.

    The Novus plastic polish works wonders. I used it this afternoon to polish my wind-deflector. The before/after pics tell the story:

    Yeah, I'll try to get a picture tonight. The LED's aren't quite as blueish as the HID's, but they're a huge improvement over the stock bulbs.

    Unbolted the 3rd row seats and stored them in the basement. Applied "bondo restore black" to the top of the rear bumper. Used the bondo on the 100 and it's still holding up well after 16 months.
