Brand new Lake Country buffing pads - Orange, Black and White
Clear marker lights for the new bumper

Just waiting for the GReddy Spectrum Elite to arrive.

Car is at Bullock this week, getting the holes filled in my trunk and repainted after 3 years of looking at it.

Come on springtime!

Nice parts!

Good choice on the CCS pads, picked up a new set last year and couldn't be happier. No finishing pads?, or is that a gold behind the orange?

And are you leaving the bumper lights chrome?

Nope - Black is the finishing pad.

My last set of pads lasted almost 3 years - but started to break down this winter. So though I would change them.

Yes I will probably leave them clear.

Black = glazing pad

Red & Gold = finishing pads

Maybe tint the bumper lights so they don't stand out so much? Just a suggestion...

eShine Canada: Lake Country CCS 6.5" Black Finishing Pad

White Polishing Foam 6.5"- Less dense foam formula for the application of waxes, micro-fine polishes and sealants. This pad has very light cutting power so its perfect for pre-wax cleaners.

Black Finishing Foam 6.5" - Composition is firm enough to withstand added pressure during final finishing to remove buffer swirls. It has no cut and will apply thin, even coats of waxes, sealants, and glazes.

I don't see any red or gold, without moving to wool.

OK - now I understand.

I did see those but disqualified them as they were targeted toward scratch resistent clear coat finnishes. As my IS300 does not have this technology, it became automatically wiped from my brain, as "not required".

I'm sure they are good, I just looked past these and order what I was familar with. The products I have should be able to reproduce the correct optical enhancements to the finish.


You can let me know later if there is value there on our finishes.

Exhaust is on. Thanks to Zorro Muffler! Found out my old one had a hairline crack at the flange and the reason why it was so loud.

Then went to my mechanic to get my 02 sensor done and discovered the heat shield loose on my front CAT.

....Back to Zorro muffler and some free MIG welding. Did I mention this was Free!

Now she's purrrring like a kitten.





Goodbye old Greddy EVO - ..it was a good 9 year run.
