July 16th, 2005 Comments off

[Edit] Current Status: Bad engine is out of the red jeep, we cleaned the engine bay so now it looks sooo nice :mrgreen:, and Greg my dad and I (I decided to help since it was sooo hot…)pulled out the engine in the white jeep and put it in the red one. Dad got one of those canopy’s (which helped enormously… and one of those misters. :razz:. Anyways, now we have to hook everything up and see if it works!:lol: [/Edit] So the last few days, been working in the HOT heat with bro trying to swap the engines of our two Jeeps. Here are some pics. jeep/ On different note, yesterday Phileo led the children’s program! That was fun haha… got to make the freshman do stuff, and had a fun time playing with the kids. During the lesson, a few of us (I will not mention their names!) TPied the seniors cars! Hahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah (according to Matt, the more haha’s you put the more you are really laughing or think its funny) That was an unforgettable experience since it was my first time ever doing something like that. I felt so bad, but it was so fun! We ended helping them clean it up… What took us an hour to TP and saran wrap their cars took a mere 5 minutes to clean up… Anyways, pics and video (you’ll get to see the culprits…) coming soon! For now study time!!!

Past Week

June 10th, 2005 Comments off

So in the past week Greg and I washed our 4 newest cars (Protege, Altima, Montana, and Mazda3) in that order. When I say washed I mean we did a really really good job on them trying to get them as smooth as when we bought them from the dealers. So it took about 1 1/2 to two days for each car… Now they are all super slick :mrgreen::cool::razz::lol::eek::wink:
All I have to say is, if you have oxidation on your car (meaning when you run you hands over the paint and its rough) then use a clay bar. That works so nice!

Here’s the steps we took for each car:
1) Vacuumed inside, washed car mats
2) Washed as thorough as possible and dry. With high concentration of car wash.
3) Took out tar and bug goo
4) Clay Bar
5) Klasse All-In-One paint cleaner, polisher, and syntheic car wax
6) Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze
7) Pure Carnauba wax
8) Liquid Gloss (This stuff is great! A hard clear acrylic coat which is supposed to last forever. It even protects paint from chips from rocks and stuff…)
9) 404 Aerospace on vinyl, plastics, and rubber parts (UV protection against fading…)
10) Clean windows
11) Interior
12) Tire shine!

Um I also got the Phileo gallery up. It’s a little bit messy, so you can also go here as well. :wink:

It didn’t seem like there was a lot of things going on this week, but I had a lot of things to do. I stayed up late (2-3 am pretty much everyday and woke up around 8. Plus so many things on my mind it was hard to sleep…
Have you ever had a dream where it was sooooooo sad that you cried? Like only a few tears, and you are consience enough to feel those tears rolling down your cheek. Ya.. .I had one of those dreams last night…:cry:…

Well on a more happy note, vacation starts today! First L.A. for grad, then lots of dinners / gatherings, and then Palm Springs on Monday to about Saturday or Sunday. Then Monday summer school :sad:. There goes my summer break…

Oh yea… CONGRATS to all those who are graduating! (Both HS and College :razz:)
