I had a few hours to myself today, so I decided to give the floor a thorough clean. This meant removing every RaceDeck tile and power washing the entire floor underneath. Moving items in the garage is a breeze with the RaceDeck floor, so its a relatively easy process. Here's some shots of the big event.
I tend to hold on to products I don't use. Today, I took a big step and deleted perfectly good products from my collection in an effort to streamline things a bit. I am going to take the products to work for anyone who wants them. I was at a stage a while back where I wanted to try everything. I think I'm at a point now where I know what products I like, and the days of experimenting are behind me.
I usually enjoy a nice brunch with my wife and son on Father's Day, but this year I am going to ask for a nice little treat as well. I ordered a RUPES NANO IBRID polishing tool. This little ripper will take my polishing game to the next level by granting me access to all sorts of areas I've never even considered taking a polisher. The possibilities are endless!
I had the opportunity this past weekend to perform a "wheel off" wash. Using my QuickJack lift, I was able to remove all four wheels and really concentrate on the wheels and wells. I put together a five-minute video to demonstrate how useful the lift is. Enjoy.
It took me an exhaustive and strenuous half-hour, but my rear wiper is off and I have never felt prouder of myself. It was touch-and-go when I couldn't actually get the wiper to dislodge, and then it magically popped off in my hand. I never used it so it was just a pain. The kit I ordered from Urotuning was a simple piece of metal that tightens from the underside and it contains an o-ring to keep things water tight. I am probably going to swap out the o-ring for a slimmer one to reduce the space between the rear glass and plug. Here's how it looks:
