Dear IS, Im sorry I made you live in Brooklyn all those years..

Its been a while since I have posted on here. I spent the past couple years finishing my masters up in NY and moved down to DC area last summer. Since then I have been trying to clean up the IS and clean Brooklyn off of it.

This is what I was dealing with when I got back. The car has just been washed. The left side has been clay bar'd, the right... still BK


TWO clay bars later and very sore arms, this is what she looks like


I still have to get some dings and such taken care of but I am happy with the results.

Recently, I decided to do the 90k maintenance on the car. She got a new timing belt, water pump, plugs, wires, valve cover gasket, air filter, and all the other small goodies that goes along with it...

A big F You goes out to the crank bolt... love, me


Because it wasnt enough of a job already, I found ways to do even more. These would be cleaned up valve covers in high-temp black.. because, why not?


Finally, my OCD kicked in and I realized that my weekend would not be complete if I did not use a full bottle of Back To Black on the engine bay.

Unfortunately, I lived in Bushwick with elevated tracks so I had train brake dust constantly being rained down on the car.
