Default What did you do to your Crossfire today?

I did a lot!

1) I read that the headlight adjustment bolt can break free of the headlight assembly, and there is an easy fix. I applied the fix and I'm now good to go.

2) I installed seat covers.

3) I removed my fan shroud.

4) I used gasket sealant to glue a HID bulb into the headlight housing since the retainer clip is missing.

5) I realized that I have to remove the exhaust, to remove the starter, to install the Miller flywheel lock, to remove the crank pulley. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have an update of me installing something.

That's what I did today.

I didn't have the chance to do anything on my crossfire today, I was too busy reading all the new threads you started!

Would have liked to finish off what I started on the car but the spring compressor has not arrived yet, so I am at a stand still untill it arrives

Sorry for all the posts, but I believe each was legitimate and not an exercise in post-whoring.

Hopefully this thread will help get more of you to do the same.

I took off the Californian cover,opened the garage door, saw the shadow of the Crossfire, put the cover back on and closed the garage door,"6 more weeks of winter"

Underhood detail, thorough 2-bucket wash (including wheel interiors and wheel wells), claybar, polish and wax and tire dressing.

I even polished the aluminum on my CAI!

6 hours and I'm ready for a "North Isles Libation".

Goodness, it sure feels good to have a really clean car, 'eh?

Oh, yeah-I put a "Eurocharged.com" sticker on the wind deflector too! Least I could do.

I spent a couple hours removing oxidation from the SC and manifold. I gave it a bath too.

I looked at mine wondering how the heck I was able to drive it last week while staring at snow and slush from our last storm

Oh, also took the top part of a 300M nose that I was hoping to fab into a rear window spoiler ....total no-go mod.

looked at mine and walked back inside

We did the Spring clean and scalp of the yard. Got cleaned up and took the Crossfire to get something to eat. When we came out, the Crossfire was covered in small water spots!!!
I thought "what kind of a jerk would just walk by and splash water on my clean baby?" Then as we were pulling out, we saw the culprit, a grackel was taking a bath in the little puddle in the grassy area of the parking lot. We both had a good laugh. Now to go and get rid of the spots off the Crossfire.
