Post your spring cleaning pics!

The weather was pretty nice today so the 300D got a wash, wax and plenty of 303 protectant were used. New/refurbished wheels and fresh rubber went on last week. Nice to have decent weather so I can drive her again. Gotta love spring cleaning..... RT

Very nice looking.

I've got the exact same rims. I just need to strip and repaint them.

I just put in a new 12v facet fuel pump. Replacing the old one that was worn out. I was gonna take DIY pictures to post when ever I try to upload pics here they are too large & all I could end up with is a tiny part of like the corner of a pic'.

I also cleaned the old dried on veggie oil off the trunk and rear bumper.


If anyone wants to see these pic's please tell me how to post my pics on MSF.

Nice!

I took the cover off the SDL today and messed around a bit, but she is not ready to come out to play just yet. A couple more months, not until the nice dry summer weather starts.

My brother and 2 friends put all of ours together.




The red euro is almost 100% swirl free. A few more passes with my portercable and it will be done
