The sun isn't shining, and the Angels' have lost three in a row to the Dodgers so I had to do something to make myself feel better. I won some Billet lower grills at the Longo Triathlon and put them on a few weeks ago. I didn't think they fit the look of my PW so I painted them white.

Then after running with them for a week, I decided that I didn't care for the posts being painted white...so I painted them black, by hand, with model paint and a little paint brush.

Personally, I think it looks much better.

Then I decided to take off the rear wiper. Thanks to Dion for steering me to the plugs at Pep Boys. I used the largest one in the pack and painted it to match the Box. After clear-coating it, I installed it with the tabs and lots of sealant to keep out the moisture. I'm happy with this mod until I can get it shaved. A total expense of about five bucks for this mod.



I'm still working on the taillight mods, should be done with those by next weekend. (I hope)

rear end looks alot better without the [useless] wiper. The plug that you used...is that one of the plugs that comes in a chrome finish? I want my wiper gone but I've been lookin for a good plug to use.

If I can't find a good plug I'll stick a camera back there!:D

It is one of the chrome ones that you can get at Pep Boys. Dion told me about them. I painted my to match and then clear coated it.

I've been thinking. if i ever removed the rear wiper, that means no use for the fluid nozzle. i would relocate it to the wiper hole and have it pointing toward the car behind me, so when they get too close, like a cobra, i would spit on the a little...
