There are two black rubber bushings in the corners of the front edge that are adjustable mine needed to be turned up to lower below the bumper slightly.

You can also remove the trim around the latch and the hood latch is also adjustable up and down and left to right.

Polished it then sealed, but the polish I got wasn't aggressive enough. I will have to try again in a couple weeks. There is a lot of etching from birds in the hood, but right now it looks good from my desk.

I just got to finish installing the Sirius radio in my car.
Woody sent me all the parts and cables so everything looks stock and genuine
Now I don't have to change channels during commercials !
Thanks again Woody.

Bumperette paint

I spent Saturday painting my rear bumperettes Arctic Silver to match the body. Lot's of prep and sanding but the final look was worth it.

After cleaning with acetone they got a 2 coats of plastic prep spray


Then 3 coats of primer, sanding with 600 and 1000 wet sandpaper between coats.


Then 4 coats of arctic silver base coat sanding with 1500 grit between coats leaving the final coat un-sanded.


And finally 4 coats of clear coat, sanding between coats 2 and 3 with 1500 grit


All the material was purchased from Automotive Touchup and matched perfectly.

It has to bee done at the dealer or through an indy, and the key fob has to have programming tag.

Not today, but two days ago I cleaned the interior, put the hardtop on and washed it.


I think it looks good this way too.

Tossed the hardtop on for a rainy weekend. It's MUCH quieter on the highway.

Good: yesterday I put a good 150 on it with the top down
Bad: called my indy to schedule an end of season oil change and inspection, and then called my storage company to schedule a drop off

25 days of awesomeness left...
