Just stopping by to say hello while I check to see if '13 Rays are worth anything, as I need to get rid of mine that have been sitting in the garage for a while.

Quite a bit!

Got a new position at work just as the pandemic hit, got married on Oct 31 2020, got COVID over Xmas (mild, just typical flu-like symptoms), and now looking for a new home (and my current one is basically sold!).

Finding a home is so stressful in this market.

Default New used seats

Bought these few days ago. Will go into the 09 at some point.

Spent a couple hours cleaning up the driver seat. Wife has a electric facial brush that she doesn’t use, perfect for scrubbing out dirty leather and the middle insert. Current state, I give it about 90% clean and 65-70% for condition (bolster leather worn and small tears).

They will be restored to 100% when I find a trust worthy restorer.

Is that pic before, after or during cleaning?

After. Left side is the driver seat. The passenger side (head support off) is untouched, but was not nearly as dirty as the driver side.

Hard for phone camera to really capture the details. Driver seat was in semi rough shape. Now, it's in tolerable shape. Subjectively speaking.

Was this the set that was in the FS section? I contemplated picking those up, but with all the travel restrictions and what not, I decided I'd just pass.

No, this set was never listed in the forum. It was local sale.

A few weeks ago I did my cabin air filter and then shortly after I did the Z1 Hood Struts.

Today I was fooling with my dash cam and the battery died. Went and replaced what looked like the original Nissan battery with an Optima yellow top. In the process of swapping that out, found some other friends must have liked my Z too. So I ended up replacing the cabin air filter again.

Spent a few hours with the Sonax and buffer...it's that time again...

It's looking like a multi-day project to get the paint where I want it before some ceramic goes back on it.

Checked on the car in the garage today. Rolled the car forward to avoid any flat spots, I do this every two weeks. Battery tender is still working and I checked for any sign of bugs etc. Did sit in the car and man, what a different feeling it is. Compared to everyday commuter cars the seating position, wheel position and even pedals (I know) feel different. Oh, and I shifted through 1 - 6 and the raw mechanical noise that's made "click clunk" is so refreshing, it's like hearing your heart beat in your heats after a crazy workout.

I had about 15 pounds of acorns in there one year.

Pulled OEM heatshield from both headers, ground off the shield mount points, wrapped and re-installed. BP pipes are wrapped, now sitting around waiting for Sasha to send the rest of the kit.

Are you speaking of traditional pro type ceramic coat or a spray on from auto parts store?
