I guess I have too much time on my hands... (as a friend keeps reminding me of his life - So much time, so little to do)!

The weather hasn't been conducive to taking her out lately, with all the precipitation here in southern New England, which offers the occasion to work on the little things. How about the illustrious job of scrubbing down the inner wheel wells? Sure, why not. It's also an opportunity to closely inspect areas not normally viewed by the casual eye.
PB blaster, a couple of soft nylon brushes, brillo pads, a heap of time and lots-O-shop towels! My wife wasn't too happy with me coming into the house stinking of PB Blaster (that stuff is amazing but raunchy smelling).

I hope this isn't too boring (or pathetic) to those reading this thread.

Of course I decided to remove the charcoal filter to access the antenna area and found a nice crack - how lovely...

(And don't pay attention to the aftermarket Italian horns; I admit that I do love the old Ferrari horn sound Wink)

And what do you charge for such a service?   Lol!

The difference is amazing!  Thanks for sharing and giving me yet one more thing to trigger my OCD!  I guess it's a good thing my car is black! Cheesy

That would limit the amount of under-carriage cleanup.

I'm done with this and, of course, I remembered to take a couple pics right after I torqued the lug nuts... Oh well, it did come out nice.
