    washed, polished, waxed, buffed etc etc the car last night.. looks real shiny and white now
    previously was yellowish, and it had some dirt water spots all over the car that were incredibly hard to remove (tried buffing it out etc) but found a neat way to easily wipe it off
    will post pics later in the day when i have sunlight

    Looks good! Aside from the front bumper, it looks pretty near spotless. And also, it might be just the angle, but it looks like your hood gaps are a little messed up.

    yeah, im thinking about grabbing a new front bumper. the bumper is all cracked and doesnt sit flush with the rest of the car. the hood is a bit bent, pretty sure the previous owner got into a small accident, but its not a bad one. if anything, the front bumper is the exterior part in the worst condition
    the "tear" was fixedish.. jdm style lol (you can notice another crack near the corner of the headlight



    heres the first step we did, the color of the car was previously yellow and we tried a bunch of things to get it white again.

    oddly, what worked is some Fast Orange soap (with pumice) and a Tub O'Towels (the heavy duty ones, can be found at walmart)
    put a little of the soap on a towel and begin wiping, itll come right off
    we washed the car off with water after and began with the detailing

    my obx axleback arrived really early, a week prior to anticipated delivery date
    it was $119 (without shipping; shipping was ~$55, bc im in hawaii..)

    here are what some of the welds look like


    it was a pita removing it bc the bolts were so rusted.. basically corroded into the old exhaust
    had to dremel the nuts out to get it removed
    bought new flange bolts/nuts and a new gasket and putting in the new exhaust took a literal 5 minutes, compared to a couple hours removing the old one..
    i hate rusted bolts with a passion

    it sounds a bit louder than stock, you hear it better around 3k-4k rpm, no drone..
    nice and quiet with a little bit of a rumble; my ideal sound
    it also sits soooo flush with the rear valence, i love it

    prepare for the sideways pic... im sorry!! its a snapchat pic.
