Previous owner used mine to go to country so I'm still cleaning the country off it, lol. It had mud caked in rr fender wells in front of tire, under back bumper and all dusty under hood. Could tell it spent lots of time parked off of pavement with the condensation oxidation on aluminum stuff under the hood. It sat long enough at some point to have dirt dobber nests in a couple of places. It has been pretty well cleaned up over the last month and a half I have had it. Don't wanna grow any rust so I have washed all underneath and in all crevices and door jams and such. Anything I have had apart has been cleaned under. It's a 4th vehicle so it will be in driveway now that windshield has been repaired to not leak and new glass put in but it is parked on cement and shaded by trees on both sides most of the day.

I believe I’m the third owner of mine, at first I was like, eh, went mudding, raced it, basically gave it hell. But after all was said and done, i didn’t think people made these toasters look good, thought maybe it’s like an old “drywall workers car” (nothing bad but it gets dirty and looks plain) so I thought hey, why not think about putting some new shoes in her, come to find out, A LOT of people do it and I’m like well hell, time to get with the toaster roadsters.

And one more from tonight. I have another one but it wont upload, oh well. i would have taken more but it was cold and foggy. I'm not always the best with picture taking.

Pollen sucks so bad, but tree sap and pollen mixed is the worst. I live with roommates and the house we share has trees everywhere. We wash our cars every three days at least.

I found a few sites that carry the OEM xB colors. I’m going to order a Shadow Micah can and some clear to repaint my spoiler before install.
