Also today I made a friend in Kona blue.
Pic?My wife bought me some detailing gear I’ve been wanting but too much of a cheapskate to buy!
After washing the car, I clayed it with Meguiar’s Mirror Glaze Detailing Clay (used Meguiar’s Mirror Glaze as the lubricant).
I was going to then layer Adam’s Brilliant Glaze, Adam’s Paint Sealant, and them Adam’s Americana paste wax but I don’t have any applicators for the Brilliant Glaze. Amazon tells me I’ll get them Tuesday.
Rather than detailing the car, I’m watching the NASCAR Cup race (I guess I’m not since it was delayed ‘til tomorrow).
6 qts of any SN+ full syn w/ Motorcraft FL400S filter.. both can be had at Wallyword for less than $30.. 2 bottles of Motul DCTF, I think Amazon had a 2 pk for the cheapest..New shoes and laces....kinda. Haha

Replace the trash stock lugnuts please!!
The stock ones have a soft shell of metal for the top layer so I had to use a chisel and hammer to get these off.
I got a set of 20 black gorilla lugnuts and 2 keys for about 30$
I'm coming up on 55k miles quick.
I'm going to replace the oil filter, oil, transmission fluid, and spark plugs.
I also requested a Blackstone analysis for the oil.
Cabin air filter and intake filter have already been replaced/ cleaned.
Anyone have any other maintenance ideas for 55k miles?
Thanks for any input!
Certainly....I'll put some up, along with my subjective impressions of the Adam's products, when I apply all three layers later this week. I'm eagerly awaiting the applicators to get going with putting this stuff on the car!!Pic?
I check out Bryan at JSt. His customer service is top-notch. I've never waited more than 8 to 10 hours for a revision. Other than the original which took about two days after sending him the base tune. I'd send him my logs late afternoon or at night. And there's always a revision waiting for me when I get up in the morning.I'm not sweating it. She couldn't get ahold of them today. Think I'm going to check out Freektune. 🤙 It's a pain though because you have to go through all of the options...again...and I'm out of the house for 15 hours/day for work for 18 more days.
I was thinking about using Freek but I'll check out JST. Haven't really had time to mess with anything right now with work. Got like another 13 days or something before ti.e off. 😐I check out Bryan at JSt. His customer service is top-notch. I've never waited more than 8 to 10 hours for a revision.

Stratified accepted your payment two weeks ago but hasn’t yet started the tuning process with you?Well I got home. Wife said no contact today and they charged us $640 2 weeks ago. So...I guess I'll try to get a refund so I can get a tune. Sent an email, their voicemail has been full forever. Sounds like they need to get things straightened out before they take more new customers. Sorry, went off topic. Done. 😐
