I mentioned the spoiler in the detailing and paint forum. I won't say what it cost, but they are hard to come by. (aside from new) I will have new brackets next week.

Painted it white.

Detailing the car a little, cleaning up oxidized paint. Much surface area on a wagon roof.
May take a break and check the pick and pull if it doesn't rain.

The spoiler has been applied. Detailed in another thread, It looks good at this point.

Great looking 850!

What kind of paint did you use? I looked through your posts and couldn't find any - looks like it works well.

Thanks. I thought the maintenance log could only be added to by the original poster?

Anyway, believe it or not, I found Duplicolor car and truck paint in Pure White. This was $1.69 per large can at a surplus, outlet store. I've bought six cans or so until they had no more.
I used it on the bumper cover and feathered it on the drivers fender in a few areas.
Addendum: Also the new spoiler. I almost forgot.

I simply rub it out with Maguires Ultimate compound, and clean and seal it with that once a year polymer/cleaner-polish in the orange bottle.

That is really all I do with no painters tools to speak of.

I think the moderator in control is accidentally allowing outside posts on these threads, (software programming? not sure.) but thanks much none the less.

Yesterday, 7-27-13. A friend organizes a remote control flying club and needed some assistance at an event. They had complete run of a local airstrip and after the days events, allowed me to make a wide open run down the runway.
I have an in car video, but a couple people took video for Youtube. I will add a link when I find it.

Starting at the far end of the runway, I built speed somewhat gradually but quickly. I had to let off after reaching about 110 MPH while still climbing at around 5500 RPM.
I had to stop but there was more left in it.

I was happy nothing broke, burnt, blew off, or came loose. After only putting two months into this car, it seems I evidently learned much from the two years I've put into the '93 Sedan. This site has been the most appreciated of all.

I will attempt to share the two videos from my Fly By.

There is a YouTube link. I have a great, inside the car, video I will need to convert.

If anyone has questions, feel free to PM.

Great thread! You've inspired me to get a prancing moose sticker.

I'm glad you enjoy the thread.
I had one experience that made the sticker worth every penny.
While exiting the freeway on a trip, a group of people in a Subaru were exiting behind me. I noticed the driver laugh and point the sticker out to his wife. She also laughed after what appeared to be getting the joke explained by her husband. I then saw the couple in the back looking between the seats laughing in appreciation.
I smiled.

Nuff said.

All are actually magnets. I remove them when I wash the cars.

They are interchangeable.

I have the larger ones in yellow, but do not yet have the car for the application.?

The small ones on the fenders are the thick polymer.

Although I do not yet own one, I am hoping my new Jaguar friends will also enjoy my threads.

Thank all for being an automobile enthusiast.
