I had some extra headlight tint film so I cut out pieces to fit over the reverse lights.

Very small but I like details.


I hit it with a little clay bar/ wash/ a bit of compound.
I also restuck my headliner "elmers rubber cement" did the job well, and did a little body work to bend my door back into shape from a disaster at a car wash were they locked my keys in the car and had to break into my car bending the door frame. Oh yeah I also took the cluster out, soldered a few resistors back, jimmied with my dimmer switch and seemed to have fixed the dim instrument cluster problem. Now all I need is a pile of $ and I can do some real weekend mod projects. Lol...the sage continues, just figured i'd share because I ahve low self esteem and I need people to say "nice job!" and things like that. Let the praise begin....now

I'm not much for gold Imps but that doesn't look bad. Dye the trim too finish it off. Cool

"dye" as in something other than all the products that promise to restore trim but have never lasted more than 2 days?

Yes. You can find some online or at your local autoparts store.

Just use tire shine when you clean your car, thats what I use on my trim and it works/looks nice.

Gold Imps FTW! Looks great! I wish I wasn't so scared of the clay bar, cause I thinkl it would help me a lot. Regarding trim. I have had luck with Maguires Trim detailer. It lasts quite a while in between treatments for me. atleast 2 weeks before another treatment is needed, but more like a month most of the time.

Claybar is very straightforward to use. Take advantage of the benefits! Just need some detailer spray and the claybar then you can get to work! I think some people just use a few drops of dish soap in a spray bottle full of water (instead of detailer spray), but don't quote me on that - look up the claybar thread in the detailing section.
