Moes 85mm throttle body. Did the home made CAI modify air box. 3" PVC drain with dryer vent down behind the bumper. The truck seems a bit snappier, nothing major.

Rolled 1100 miles and decided to treat it to a clay bar and wax with the new tub of Turtle Synthetic Paste I picked up. Close to a conventional carnuba but a lot more forgiving on plastic trim than natural wax.

Here's a crappy cell phone pic of Poe camped in my garage. Supposed to rain tonight and I didn't blow four hours this morning to have that happen. I think I need a bigger garage because I'm not getting a smaller truck.

Cquartz this massive beast! Took about 9 hours for two coats taking my time.

Last Friday put a Magnaflow "mild" muffler on. Perfect for what I was after.

How difficult is it to apply that stuff? The instructions seem fairly daunting with little margin for error.

Not too bad. You have to get a feel as to how long to let it on before taking off. If you wait too long, it is difficult, too short and it will not bond much. Since I have black, you can tell right away if you are doing it right or not. You do need to insure your paint is free of anything like bug fragments or anything on the surface as it is not a cleaner so you just wipe on without scrubbing. The quality of the surface will dictate the results. My truck is new so it was the perfect time for me to try it. They recommend using a clay bar first and if your paint needs swirls removed etc., you have to address all those things up front.

Hit a large cement flower pot messed up the front bumper and tow hook got pushed off the frame. New bumper skin is 530.00 plus tax not including if anything else is damaged.
