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.

Received and installed my black wheelskin steering wheel cover today. It took about an hour and a half to put on but was well worth the time and effort.! I also put a coat of NXT wax on my steel rims...I am now anxiously awating the black nerf bars I ordered last week, should be here any day now!

Had a little shimmy in the RAV4 at 65 mph. Took the Blackmobile in today to check why this was happening since I just had the new tires balanced a little while ago. Found out the last guy that did the work counter balanced the wheels since the old weights were still on from the previous tires :shrug:

EGAD! Hard to believe isn't it? That's almost as bad as the A/C filter installed with the plastic still on it.

Yeah, pretty bad. The BlackMobile smoothed right out after a rebalance. I started to wonder if I had a bent rim.

Trying to determine if I should order the Optima battery from Amazon or not. Super cheap price but 1/2 the people complained about Amazon's crappy packaging which caused the battery to be destroyed.

Opened up the driver's side passenger door and applied some sound deadening (not through yet). Decided to *finally* do a long overdue car wash after that, including taking the spare off and cleaning underneath it.

It was a pretty horrible night, $4 for 10 minutes, I spent too long using the pressure spray soap cycle and Foam Brush cycle that I only had around a minute left to pressure rinse everything off and then pressure clear coat (which allows it to air dry without leaving water spots) I ended up having to get another $4 for another 10 minutes and spent the entire 10 minutes pressure rinsing and clear coating -_-

Then when I tried to auto start the Rav, all I heard was the electrical clicking, but no turning. So I immediately stopped the auto start process by hitting the brakes, turned off the parking lights, hope there was enough juice to crank and it started! Phew, crisis averted!

Well, I didn't do this today, but a couple of weeks ago I tried a clay bar for the first time. I think the results are pretty sweet, even tho my car is silver, it reflects well and looks a bit like liquid metal :D :D :D

Couldn't help but put this sticker on, I usually hate bumperstickers but...

I used mostly Meguiar's products (Gold Class wash, Smooth Surface clay kit and NXT 2.0 Tech Wax)
