    Is that attendees or work to be done:whistle:?

    We typically have 6-12 attend, but only 5 or less have work to be done;).

    I’m usually there to help and the social aspects(y).

    Ray’s new ride needs to be corrected and coated. Maybe you can help. It was too warm at the last meet and we were in direct sun. So, I had to settle for installing Gyeon Can Coat and delaying the job until the conditions are more favorable.

    Thanks. We washed with Optimum No Rinse, Clayed, use Optimum Paint Prep and applied Can Coat. It fills a little, but not very much.

    Been over 2,000 miles on the new plugs, still getting the usual MPGs.

    This was a meet up that no one had an oil change done o_O

    And that blueish Prime shined like a diamond (y)

    Was reading up on Maintenance section and something about counterfeit spark plugs, I hope you got yours from a reputable seller or from the dealerships. But your MPG indicates the ones you got are the "good stuff".;)

    If I recall correctly the only fluid involved in this meetup was coolant and sweat, it was a 90degree day, plenty hot for someone from the east bay shoreline.:LOL:

    After the coatings the Blue Magnetic color now became Blue Diamond:whistle:

    Looking forward to next meetup!(y)

    Thanks for looking out.

    It was definitely a concern of mine buying counterfeit plugs unknowingly. 4,000 miles before I pulled the plugs at 119,000 miles, I began searching on here about real vs. fakes. I red the gen 2 section along with other car forums on the topic. Took months to find the consensus where others were buying plugs that were legit on the www. A consistent vendor that was mentioned throughout was Rockauto so I made my purchase there, not cheap but cheaper than the local Toyota dealer in town. When in doubt, always get from local toyota dealership if time is in a pinch. Been getting 65 mpg per tank w/ICE on 95% of the time on the new plugs :cool: w/AC on at lowest speed :mad:

    How's your lowered and much more stable than stock ride? Hope youre rounding corners and flying off ramps like a champ on the new coils and front strut bar :cool:

    Can't wait for the next meet up, heard one will have car lifts! We all better not show up just for oil changes for that one :ROFLMAO:

    Always good to have the CFO on board and if not, now you know;).

    In September we’ll have access to an actual shop:).

    But you probably want to do something prior:whistle:?

    Maybe @Pedal Logic , but I can always host if you want to drive out to fairfield (y).

    I don't mind driving to Fairfield. I can drop off the CFO at Nut Tree.

    Know this service would be 6 hours or so ;).

    The CFO might not want to spend that much time shopping, or maybe you wouldn’t :oops:.

    I know mine could rack up a decent bill:whistle:.

    But we could maybe work something out soon(y).

    LOL. True that. Let me get all the parts together and have a cleaned EGR ready to go, then we can schedule something. I don't mind the long day or drive. CFO will have to take a PTO day LOL. Thanks again Ray.
