So I have the Monte Carlo Nationals coming up Saturday and decided it was finally time to crack down and do some work on the Monte that I have been needing to get done very badly!!
I was out of work for 7 months so my funds were very low, luckily I just got a new permanent job with a great company so I finally had money to get new tires for my summer rims. It's nice to have those on again.
I bought myself a Red G2 brake caliper kit and it was very easy to use, and came out great. Just prepping my calipers was crazy. 11 years of dirt and dust and rust. I went through 3 charges on my drill with a wire wheel and brushes lol. But it came out great. Only took 4 hours of cleaning and 1.5 hours of painting.
I used to have a windshield vinyl on the Monte, I decided to take that off because after 8 years it was faded and cracking and starting to turn a little brown on the inside. It's weird to have it gone, but it cleans up the car a little.
I also took the time to debadge my trunk, mostly so I can wax it without a q-tip because it never looked good around the badges. They were just too small to clean around, and the script font made it very difficult.
