I saw this on another site and figured to give it a try here at R4W. Pics are nice but not required. Tell us what you have done to your RAV4 today!

I'll start off first... I saw cat foot prints on my hood today. Decided I need to wash it this weekend.

No, I have enough of Zaino for this spring. I ordered some more Menzerna Final Polish. I have a little work to do on the RAV4 and a lot to do on my 2004 Ascender.
Really good stuff Menzerna. The final polish is quite "mild" so you might have to switch around buffer pads to get the results you want. It sounds as though you've used it before so I'm sure you're aware of this.
I did end up getting some more Zaino Z5 today. Don't want to run out!
Working on the battery isolation, aux power outputs, lighting controller setup for the Rav. All this is on a prototype bench but I now have some preliminary code and now have a keypad communicating via a 3 wire serial connection with the to get an LCD screen to communicate with a serial connection, then it's controlling of relays and doing PWM to control the brightness of lights. :D
Ordered these last night. Hope they come out good!

Installed wedge LED Light White for the license plate. It looks kinda blue. Not really feeling it.
After a long hard winter, I had the black rims put back on. The BalckMobile is back in black and looking mean! :twisted: :twisted:
I removed the cross braces on my roof rack. I used the forum ssearch function to find advice and instructions on how to do the job. Worked like a charm and took only 10 scratches on the RAV and no blood drawn by the RAV mechanic - me. :)

Now it will be much easier to wash, drive quieter at highway speeds and reduce air resistance.

Did my bi-weekly RAV4 beast inspection....checked tire pressures, emptied waste basket bag and checked all fluid levels under the hood. Found one the six battery cells slightly low on fluid so I added a teaspoon or so of distilled water to top it off.

got rid of the new car smell

Only 2000 miles and already in the woods!

Drove while snowing today. :( Maybe I should have left the winter tires on longer ...

A thorough wash and wax today, with interior detailing. My Rav is still looking brand new!
Replaced my cabin air filter and the old one was COMPLETELY BLACK! Must of been the reason why my interior smells like moist mold, lol. Forgot to take a picture of it, and also got a car wash.
