I spent my first day off cleaning my garage a bit, PART of my room, and I have started detailing my car.
I had given it a quick was the other day at a carwash, so it was still in decent enough condition to begin detailing. I started with the front of the car and will finish the doors and rear and hardtop tomorrow. Rubbing compound, claybar, polish, and wax. It's much easier to work when I do it panel by panel, rather than doing the entire car each step. It seems easier on my back too.
I saw a Berlina Black S2000 CR tonight at the parking lot of Fry's and it looked CLEEEAAANN! It was also 100% stock. It makes me wonder if I have been fighting an uphill battle with all the modifications done to my car. I'm just not sure.. I took a break today and went to grab lunch. Upon walking out of the store I saw my car in the parking lot and just thought "god damn.. it's almost exactly the way I want it" but the shitty part about having a "nice" car is the fact that every dent, noise, or problem I have is magnified by 100. My hardtop really sets my car off, but it is in need of much love before its something I can brag about. I think since I have installed it, it has brought down the clean look of my car, simply because the hardtop needs some paint/body work.
money is fucking tight right now though, and i have to dedicate my funds elsewhere for the time being.
These are all old pictures from when I first got my new wheels. Maybe after I finish detailing tomorrow I'll take it out for a photoshoot.
