I am so lucky to live in Miami Florida, here it is sunny all year round and in winter the lowest temperature is 40 degrees farenheit, but the bad thing is the hurricane season and the living cost but somebody needs to pay for the good weather right ☀:cool:

I would love to experience something like that! I have lived on the east coast of Canada all my life where snow takes over LOL. We do get some hurricanes but it's rare to see a bad one.

Pressure wash and full detail first please, how many months the car will be in the storage? I believe you need to put the car over jacks right?

Yes will give it a wash before I put the cover on it.
It will be stored till May unless we have really good weather in April.
No I never store any of my summer cars on jack stands. I just pull them in the garage and cover them. Sometimes I start them up every couple weeks. Got 3 to store this season.

Haven't got around to test fitting the fenders. Hopefully in the next week or so I will have time to do so.
I will also do a full write up "DIY" for install if you guys are interested.

Had a mild weekend weather wise, was able to wash and decontaminate my car. Plan on doing the paint correction & ceramic coat after the holidays.

These are the steps I took prior to putting it under the cover.
Adam's Strip Wash
AutoGlym Magma
Adam's Clay Bar/Lube
Adam's Strip Wash

Will be using 3D One with Orange Lake Country pad for the correction along with the Adam's Swirl Killer DA Polisher. Carpro 3.0UK with Car pro Gliss for ceramic coating!

Wish me luck haha, will update as I go along.

Oh and just for fun, I asked my husband to hold up one of the carbon fenders! Super excited to get them installed.

Little Christmas gift from my hubby. 3D One compound/polish with Lake Country pad.
Set of Acuity shifter bushing, really looking forward to seeing the difference those make!

Waiting for the carbon fiber fenders installation.
Soon! Going to do paint correct and ceramic first. The bumper has to come off to install the fenders, so I figured I would do that once everything is cured.

If they are Seibon, I'd say right now, you're never gonna be happy with the fitment, especially if you are any type of perfectionist. If I had it to do over again, I would have replaced mine with OEM.

They are not Seibon, I didn't go with them because I read up on fitment issues. Apparently these knock offs fit like a glove, so will see!! The CF duckbill fit spot on so I am hoping the fenders will also. Plan on getting their CF hood and the other CF duckbill for the factory low spoiler.

Right on. I already had the Seibon hood and didn't want the look of different weaves or color with another brand. I heard the horror stories and didn't quite believe it could be as bad as people were saying, and that I possessed the skill to fit them properly. I was wrong on both accounts :doh:
