Default Very Productive Day; Wheels & Brakes: DONE

Winter's gone so today began the PT "summerization" process:

1. Wake up early

2. Get alignment.

3. Get the 18s out of the basement (uggh, my back!)

4. Pick up a can of black VHT caliper paint, a can of brakekleen, and a couple of small wire wheels.

5. Go crazy on the brake rust. And there was plenty of it. I decided not to be a perfectionist on methodology. Didn't remove anything, so the finish may not last for ever, but what the hey. HUGE IMPROVEMENT and I have a 2001 so these parts were supposed to be zinc coated. If you have a new PT, take the time and paint your rotors & calipers right away!

So for $15 and a day's labor, I'm ready for some solid cruisin' weather.

Remember Crewzin, as I get older I tend to slow down, including my brain.[:0]
