Wow, what luck to have both cars damaged like that!  Hope the body work is the extent of the problem.

 

The upgrades will keep your mind off such troubles, for sure :)

I haven't heard of this sealer before and checked Amazon for user feedback. There was only one write up and it wasn't good. User wrote he used two coats and it didn't bead water very well.

why would you go to amazon for a review of a detailing product? Gyeon has been around for a minute and is gaining more popularity. Feynlab is still #1 coating though

I try to read several different websites concern product reviews. Often get opposing views. (The home site will always offer biased views, and often there a bogus posts spread to counter negative comments). I simply found it interesting that a purchaser of the coating found it to be lacking.

Luckily for both cars, the body work was the extent of the problem(s).  The shop I used made both cars look like they never got hit.
 

I haven't run the lighting past the wife yet.  Been busy with a LOT of other stuff.

Over the weekend.....

 

Washed and cleaned interior

Planning to have my carpet guy come out and clean the carpet on both cars as well as the house

Felt trunk of wife's car after wash and I didn't like how rough it was feeling.  Contemplating doing a buff with the rotary on it.

Did this yesterday, super easy.  I have to give credit to Xtra for this one, he gave me the idea.  Used my left over 3M gloss black vinyl from when I wrapped my exhaust bezels.

 

Door Handle Accent 02
Door Handle Accent 01
 
Also started hard wiring my dash cam.  Got the cable ran along the top of the windshield, down the A pillar, and under the dash.  Ran into a problem though, the Amazon wiring kit doesn't come with the right fuse panel plug, the Gen II Edges have these double fuses I've not seen before, I need to learn more about the types of fuses in these cars and buy the right plug to tap into the cabin fuse panel.  In hind sight, I probably should have checked this before I soldered it together!  :gaah:
 
I'll try to do a full write up once I figure things out and finish up.  I learned some things about removing panels from under the dash and have some tips for running wires that will be useful to others.

Thanks, I looked it up this morning too and its pretty straight forward, but it has changed since I last dealt with a cabin fuse panel in the late 90's.  When I first looked at the fuse panel diagram in the manual, I saw that there were a few "spares" locations available, but I think they were all Micro3 and a shared fuse with important stuff.  It looks like the best one to tap into is the 10 amp fuse at location 23 (assuming Gen II shares the same layout for all yrs).  Its the "delayed accessory" circuit.  I'll be able to finish up Wednesday when I get the Micro2 fuse tap adapter.  Managed to run the wire without removing any weather stripping and only removing two easy to pop off panels.  Also, the little storage drawer under the head light switch to the left of the steering wheel pops straight out and you get a clear view of the fuse panel, makes it way easier to work on.  You still have to reach underneath to get to it, but at least you don't have to stuff yourself underneath the dash upside down.

Have you used a clay bar on it? Really makes a difference before finish.

Enigma: That is part of the process.  The real fun is going to be deciding the right polish to use in order to take care of the swirls on it.
