A car buddy of mine told me about a really good match for cadmium in a rattle can for my windshield wiper motor so redid it today.

Also shined up my headers. Thought they were gray but turns out I was wrong.

Great progress! I hadn't bothered with my wiper motor, but that's an easy fix, I'll add it to the list. :)

Seeing it was a rainy and misty day, did some upholstery repairs on my front seats. It might not look 100% perfect but certainly looks better than it did.

I put some black shoe polish on top to blend is any area's that had the white underlining showing thru.

Quick project this am before I went to work thanks to @Richard Cranium for pointing out I needed the hood blackout decals.

Purchased from DCS, flat Black per factory spec's.
