Had a thorough wash today including decontamination with TAC System cloth, plastic trim treated with carbon collective coating and bodywork with BH cleaser polish and AG UHD.
Would have to apply one more time this year and it should enough to get me through the winter.

Also after long journey on different kind of roads it make sense to do wheel balancing and alignment.

Managed to get RRC throttle body. Will be slowly starting to gather all the parts needed for more N/A power, but still stay civilized as it's my daily. Plans are RRC intake, maybe fd2 cams if good deal pops up, fd2 pump conversion, Tegiwa exhaust manifold and Fujitsubo Power Getter.

Some time ago I started to notice that after every wash I have some water trapped in my spoiler. After seeing some examples how member tackled this issue I decided to follow and made two holes on each side on the lowest point of the spoiler.

Some good amount of water was trapped inside the spoiler.

Also decided to run some fresh weather seal around the spoiler and fitting holes on the boot to help push water away.

Tested with running some water through the hose. All good and boot is dry as well. :) (y)

Managed to get HKS RSK for a good price for my future build. Main pipe was wrapped in gold heat wrap, but not very neatly.

I couldn't leave it as it is, plus underneath that wrap and glue residue I've found usual aluminium oxidation which has to be removed. Used 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500 and 3000 grit sandpaper finished by Autosol.
Before and after pics below.

Also happened that I was offered to choose one of the t-shirts from Tegiwa for free. Not sure how long that print is going to last, but quality is not bad at all and most importantly is has a nice slim fit and doesn't look crap. Will see after the first wash...
