I've been using the same tire cleaner since the mid 90's, and this has never happened before. Not on my Enkeis (previous car), Stocks, or 5Zigens...all of which had MUCH more exposure to the product. At least now, the damage is barely noticeable, even up close.

Thanks GalletGun.

Thanks guys.

btorok: I got the clear bra work done at Aerotect in SoCal. Great prices and workmanship.

EDIT: I give up at this point. They will stay like this until I need a refinish. They turned out a lot better than I initially expected. The lips still have some spots, but they are hardly noticeable.


Perfect-ish!


Looks good to me...


Wait...*Squints eyes*WTF is that?

I got my headrest monitors back from the upholsterer, and they came out pretty nice. I can't say that I'm 100% happy, but I'm too picky for my own good . Now my kid can watch DVD's or play the PS2, and I have my screen to myself.

Yup, good ol' Velcro. I was going to go with a zipper for a cleaner look, but they would have charged a lot more. Plus, Velcro is easier for my son to work with. I figure with tinted windows, and the OEMish cover, they shouldn't attract too much attention.
