Made som test how the AC is working. It is more than okey for a 20 year old AC that never have been refilled.

It's been a while since I did a bacterial remediation on the AC system, so it was time now.
Just activate the can and close the dorrs and AC on full power.








proper weathering after.

Torpedo plate removed. The brown you see is rustprotectionwax.


Did you watch your installer remove the trim around the windshield? Did he have special tools?

I presume one must use a very thin flat blade from the windshield, then push toward the A-pillar to pop off those vertical trim. Is this how they did the work?

I removed the trim myself. I used a thin flat plastic tool, just like you said from shield towards the A-pillar.

What product or process did you use for the ~ rubber trim on the lower section of the doors? I have polished my black 745T and some buffing compound is on those rubberish sections.

Looking good, of course.
