Nothing today,
Walked into the garage to remember, my ride is at the dealership. It’s getting both front hubs and friction plates, WTF are “Friction Plates”? Something to do with a service message about the “Clicking” noise in the wheel area.

I assume you have the 6 piston Brembos so you have 2 piece rotors ,the hat and the friction plate .

Today I replaced the OE Osram 4300k HIDs with Xtremevision 5000k bulbs.
Seeing as I had to remove the airbox to do the left side, I replaced that too, with a JLT cold air v2 intake. :)

It's a complete airbox that seals the triangle opening on the bottom and the top front edge to the hood (most don't have this)
Neighbor says it roars now, hard to tell since I'm running cats only all the way back.
Feels quicker on launches and I'm happy how it turned out.

Since the R/T survived Ida with minimal water intrusion I thought I'd treat it to a set of OEM splash guards. $135 for both sets, used a right angle drill so didn't have to remove the tires.
The plastic 'rivet' plugs that came with them were useless but I have a supply of 1/4" plugs always on hand so no problem.
Took about 45 minutes and they fit perfectly.

Did some underhood dress up today.
Painted the water tank top with VHT plastic paint. Decided to snazz up the fuse box cover with model paint & stick on letters.
