That was plasti-dip?! Looked really nice, exactly what I'm planning on doing to mine sedan. I loved how the mudflaps and skirts were all white too.
Did it look like it was holding up well?

How do you like those coilovers?

Congrats on the new whip, looks awesome.

So, today I brought her to our AC guy.
While the AC does work, we hit 90deg last week and the system just could not hang.
I'm thankful the back tint is as dark as it is, because I'd be boiling the kids alive in the back seat!
She needs to be converted to 112(?), and thankfully our AC guy is an old, good friend, so I'm paying less than market price.

On another topic, I should disclose that what ever lip was on there, is no longer on there because it failed on me right around the AZ/Ca line, bending backwards under the bumper. I had to stop on the roadside 3x and try to anchor/remove the damned​ thing. It was held on by two completely different bolts, of which I had tools for neither.

The first rte 66 offshoot in Az, I stopped and bought a (6$!!!) Bag of zip ties. I was in the lot, on the concrete, chaining zip ties together, when I hear a "hey young lady" from above me.

The voice belonged to a cowboy man. He was probably 50-60, but looked ancient. Sun-dried, and only about 6 teeth in his head. He says, "Thet ain't gonna do shit". He's holding a coil of light gauge wire and pliers.
He proceeds to wire my lip to my bumper, excessively, while regailing me of his 25 acres, and 4 ex wives.

I really just wanted to pet the saddled pony in the trailer behind his work dulie, and get the fuck outta there, because it wasn't long before he started chastising me for my lack of tools and questioned my capability to make it home. When I protested that I needed to make Flagstaff before dark, and needed to get back on it, he finished the wire twist (4th, 5th? Wire) and stood up. I thanked him, and he replied, "I love helping damsels in distress".
I sat in the driver's seat and replied, "I appreciate your help, but I was never in distress." I shut the door and drove away.

Damn sure held the whole way home! But, that lip was not salvage-able.

And that, good sirs, is what happened to my lip.

Ya, you'll have to convert to R112, which came in the 94+ OBDII machines. You can get away with simply changing the ends where the machine hooks to with adapters. Some may insist that you need to rebuild the whole AC system to take R112, but I have yet to see someone with a broken AC because they put R112 in it. There is a DIY on this site somewhere if you want to do it, buddy went into great detail.

Nice story too. Nice creepy guy

Yeah, my guy basically changed out all my fittings, leak tested, drained it of 34 and filled it with r112. For a Benjamin, it's a good deal.
It's cold in my wagon now! : bouncy:

Thank you!
This is my advice on plasti-dip.

My car had been booth sprayed with dip and then cleared, so it looked a lot better than most plasti-jobs I've seen.
In the large surface areas it looked really good. It was in the prep and trim that mistakes were made, most likely out of haste.
The thinly coated places are the worst to remove, and you can't really get around having some. Remove your seals, or tape them off. It is really hard to remove plasti from the foamy plastic of the seals.
Also, if you have painted side mouldings/skirts when you dip it, removal will mean paint loss on them. The hard, smooth plastic of the mudflaps was the easiest and cleanest to remove. They also had the most dip loss, prior to removal.
And lastly, the clear on my car has a cracking in it, that was due to the shrinkage of the plasti under heat, it is going to take a wet sand to remove, at least. Its rather severe in my case. The longer you leave it on, the more likely this is to occur.

For a cheap temporary color change, it's not bad. But don't be lazy, either in putting it on, or in how long you keep it on... Unless your paint is completely shot.

FfT1's are what I had on my sedan. If they hadn't come on it, I would have swapped my old set over. I love em.

Nice come-back! Looks like you've already improved it quite a bit.

Good to know, I'll be noting all this.
Taking off thin plasti-dip is a pain, unless you get the "Dip Remover Spray" from Dipyourcar.com. It's a little pricey, but It works great!

I've never heard of plasti-dip damaging paint! That's crazy. I wonder how long it was on your car for?
With my car I wouldn't be concerned about damaging the original paint, as it's toast.

I just got FF1s on my Sedan, at first I was shocked (pun not intended) with how harsh and bumpy the ride was. After driving it for about a week they seemed to soften up, and I'm starting to like them now.

Ha, if you went from stock to full coil overs, of course!
A lot of us went from stock to a set of lowering springs first. (mine were H&R race)
It's a cheaper, safe alternative to cutting springs, but coilovers and the ability to adjust height cannot be over sold.

As far as coilovers setups go, FF is the best for our chassis. Some people prefer other setups for race and specialty applications. But for daily lows, these are the best ride.
Now, you can get the type 2, with the dampining adjustment and get a softer/stiffer ride, but those are $$.

Paint looks well kept beneath that sea of dip! I feel you on peeling of the thinner areas. I helped a friend peel black plasti-dip from a Miata he bought. All of the trim areas and seals suffered the same, but since it was black, we ended up trimming around it to reveal a badly oxidized OEM red underneath. Probably why it was dipped in the first place.

The Cowboy story was awesome... not your usual every day experience.

Looking forward to seeing what twists and turns you have for it.

Tuff Stuff (the yellow can) worked surprisingly well on beige Honda carpet back in the day when I helped a friend de-gross a beige interior.

It's not the most glamorous product and I'm sure has enough chemicals in it to scorch your lungs, but using that and a damp terry cloth towel will pull a bunch of the stains out. It's not a miracle worker, but it does work and it is cheap.

I have discovered a new joy. Having two sets of stuff.

I removed my headlights from my sedan and stared refurbishing them. One of the lenses has serious deterioration close to the sides.I went and looked at the set on the wagon, and the lenses are much better. They have been modified, and I am also not a fan of the black housed- yellow highbeam thing anymore.
Though I sure did rock it, once upon a time!

So, I have taken the bumper off, the headlights out, and it is time to customize!


Also notice my holey bumper! All the holes!!


Also, be on the look out!
My intersection linghts will be going up for sale as soon as I buy a new bumper.
I am not ready to sell them until that happens.



The cut job to do the fogs, also not great.


I am actually taking a short break before starting on headlight modifications. So more pictures to come.

I desperately need a tune, a new ac compressor, and the wiring thoroughly gone through. I replaced the master cylinder already, it went out. However, it's very sound where it counts. Whomever installed this engine knew what they were doing, and did a good job.

Are you not putting in some projectors?

Also, are those "white-housed" or painted white inside, or is that just how they look?

Fun stuff though, can't wait to see them on the wagon. I'm dying to do some headlight upgrades myself.
