    My drive belts / serpentine belts have been gradually noisy for the past few months at a cold start. It's becoming pretty obvious, so I need to look for the genuine oem parts. :coffee: No Gates belts (for me). :shakehead:

    My oil filter housing is seeping, so I bought the spool valve filter. I also bought the brake fluid reservoir cap b/c it was leaking. :ioof6:

    My car hasn't been washed for several months. I usually clean the grease film on the windshield at least, but not even to that lately... :coffee:

    But this thing is super nice 'n easy to keep it clean!

    Rain-X all season windshield washer fluid. Works 'n cleans it off 10x better than the OEM fluid, and it definitely revived my 3-yr-old wiper blades back to its life again. The view on the road is sooo fresh!

    EDIT: This fluid doesn't become white, when it gets dried out, compared to the oem fluid which it looks pretty obvious 'n nasty.

    Car still needs some replacement parts, but she is still running..

    Have been strained by daily grinds + my ongoing laziness but I finally washed her, after 5 months of negligence since the last summer! Was b/c the cherry blossom season (spring) has arrived in the PNW, and I wanted to re-take a pic I took 2 years ago.

    I tried finding it in this thread, but where did you get the black trim stuff that is around the lip kit?

    Great pics Rich. I was going to read the 5 visible changes but I'm not dyslexic... :lawl:

    Here you go, Cody.
    * TOYOTA CAMRY Under Spoiler Protection Strips → Post #314

    I decided to get two rear ones for my front & rear because their front one was either a little shorter, or it was in two pieces iirc. Wanted to get the longer one to be safe, and the rear ones were definitely long enough to cover my lip kits with some leftovers in the end.



    Yeah man, go for it! I used it all up in just a few weeks because it was so addicting lol. (Say, it was b/c of this terribly rainy weather in the pnw haha.)



    Thanks Chris. Well, I'm pretty sure you're not lol. Took me a while for me to type all of that, so I hope I'm not either haha.

    (Was trying to mimic those "spot the difference" cartoon pics in newspapers / magazines haha. Their answers are usually printed upside down for checking them later, so that was the reason lol. Edited the headers to make them more clear.)
