Samy.. He is correct as when you peel the black strips off they will reveal the OEM color of your BOX !!! My people did this from time to time but they all stated that it is a PITA to get off !!!

Well, not so great, drove for a few days and seems like it's back.At first every thing was quite. Would the quality of the pads make a big difference, got them from Auto zone only ones they sell. Seems like when the pads get hot the start making a whoosh whoosh whoosh until I stop.

Anyone have any input on drum pads from experience, would be appreciated?

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

I did this yesterday

Took about 30 min with the removal of the emblems themselves and the sticky residue left behind

Haha not quite as there is a slight difference in the paint color from the sun and all that. Maybe some paint correction would fix that. Off hand, does anyone have the link to that one store to get the body colored plug for the rear wiper delete? I'm going through the search results still looking for it

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

I filled up gas today over the top on my paint, wheels, and shoes. Now inside stinks like gas from my shoes. They gave me $10 for a car wash at least.

Call me crazy but I don't think that's how it works.

On a serious note, that blows but at least they tried to make it better.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Busted headlight gave me the chance to finally buy some nicer headlights! purchase new taillights and fog lights while i was at it. Spent way more than I should have but I'm super happy with them! I can get some pictures better pictures in the morning. Now I really need to get the paint done for my xB. I miss the way it used to look!

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Well it finally broke off, luckily when I got some parts from Frank, that was one of them. Big thanks to you Frank!

Hay Ray, do you have a set of decent tag lights that, the clear plastic ones, mine are falling apart, I'll buy them from you?

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Being a nice and sunny day I decided to have my xB washed to remove all the chemicals and salt from the bottom of my xB !! Cleaned the windows and interior as well !!! Feels nice to have a totally clean car for a change in the middle of winter !!! I know it will not last but it looks great and I feel .... GOOD !!!!!
