Icon10 Clean Mazda, finally. 56K FTL!

Well, I couldn't just lay around the house when it was 60 degrees out. Decided to wash the Beast4K, spray paint the frame where I had it welded last year, paint the front crossmember because it looked sh*tty, and detailed the inside. Then I went to the bus stop/boat launch in my community to take some pictures. I put centercaps on that Jason gave me, though from the time he gave them to me til today, I lost one. So....4 wheels, 3 centercaps..... I also used Meguiars PlastX on the headlights/foglights to try to restore the clarity of the plastic.....did a pretty good job. Much better to see in person.
