Alright finally detailed the 944

After 4 hours of doing some karate kid type waxing... i finally got the car much better.  This paint was oxidized like a mofo.  Wax on wax off dani-san.

Just so you have an idea.  Here's a pic of the hood before.  Note that up towards the corner by the window you can see where i waxed.  And where the shoplight is hanging you can see the worn oxidized paint...  big difference.



Little elbowgrease.

Take the bra off before it kills your paint.

Bras are bad...tans lines look horrible.

So i spent some time prepping the car for the timing belt change, but spent a few hours tidying up the engine bay.  Needed a little tlc and cleaning up.  Also changed the fluid in the power steering.

So this is how power steering fluid shouldn't look.





Thanks to our friend the MIGHTY VAC! it was all removed, and fresh fluid installed.  





Anyway with that said....  The engine bay is pretty darn clean as it is.





But not clean enough, so with a little power by armstrong, several polishing compounds, and some hard work... (not done yet by the way... hehe)





Ahhh tasty.
