Geeked about tomorrow's cleaning.

I'll be cleaning my brother's 01 ES and it's filthy as hell. I am actually going to give it the full detail, engine bay and under carriage as well. The engine bay is going to be the hardest. 125,000 miles on the clock and it has never been cleaned. I also will be doing a intake seafoam cleanse. I can't wait until tomorrow morning! LOL!

I envy you. All that dirt and you get to remove it all and make it look good. I remember doing that for my girl frien in high school. I worked all day and made her car look so good and she was so very grateful!!!

So the car is cleaned but the car had a boo boo. I was rubbing the third brake light bar pretty hard to get this stain out and I put a hole in it. It's OK though, I found a yard that has it for 15 bucks. I'll pick it up in the morning. Anyways, how does one go about taking one of these off and putting it back on?

Very easy job. I would drill two small holes at each end of the brake light. This will make sure that you will have no water build up in the future.
