    Rust, dents, miles, extra metal.
    Applied a rust-resistant coating to the top of my skid plate (below), changed the oil, cleaned the ac condenser, put on a much needed set of new wipers and spent $2 at the car wash to clean it. Then drove it to dinner and rolled over 213k.

    Finally got the trans out and now it’s time to drop it off at the local shop for a rebuild. While the trans is at the shop and the engine is out, I’m going to be cleaning up some wiring in the engine bay, prepping for the super charger, and painting the engine bay black. Glad to be at this point in the build… finally.

    I have these and they are an absolute game changer. It did take me a while to get them adjusted where I wanted them though became the wind from driving definitely affects where the spray pattern lands. I have mine set to spray pretty high on the windshield while stationary but it hits near the middle of the windshield while on the interstate.

    I haven't even attempted to spray fluid through them yet haha. I just popped them in and closed the hood

    Definitely take a few minutes to adjust them. I used a needle nose.

    Without adjustment mine were either shooting over the cab or under the wipers in the most useless fashion :laughing:

    Same. Haha. I think I used a very small pick to adjust mine. And the slightest adjustment makes such a big difference too. Definitely what I would consider “sensitive”

    I just went out and used a small flathead screw driver. Im sure I'll do some more adjustments after driving. These puppies sprayed all over the garage floor haha. This better spray pattern should be helpful when there's snow packed on the outside edges of the windshield or when I want to spray some tailgaters down

    Stuff. Also things.
    Painted my nasty, faded flares with some trim and bumper paint. No idea how it will hold up long-term, but they look amazing now. Totally worth it.

    Sometimes you have to break things up down to build them back up
