My car (and truck)

I haven't posted on here in quite some time so I thought I'd just throw a few update photos out there. Now...I have a question...does anyone know of a good convertible top cleaner? My top is the canvas looking fabric kind.

So yesterday I found a third hole in my exhaust system (I've patched new pipe into it twice previously) and I said to hell with it and bought a whole new exhaust system. The old system was a Y collector to a 2" pipe and a single glasspack muffler. Now I have a true dual setup with 2" pipes and 2 Super-Z mufflers. It exits on the side of the car on an angle behind the back wheels. 2" 45 degree cut T-304 stainless tips as well. Noticed an increase in "pep" as well as a whole different sound. Before it was very quiet even with the glasspack muffler but now you can actually hear it. It's still quiet enough not to interfere with the top down while cruising but when you get on the gas you really know it's there. The tone is also MUCH deeper and it sounds a lot better. No pics yet (camera cord is at old house still) but I'll throw up some pics and a video probably later tonight for everyone to enjoy. The shop I took it to did a beautiful job on the whole thing so I have to show it off lol. Stay tuned.

New exhaust

Alright...here's the pics. It was too windy yesterday to get a video so I'll grab that tonight weather permitting. And yes I realize that she's a tad dusty.

Here's the link to what it sounds like. The mic on my camera is crappy and can't pick up the low tones but you get the drift.

And yes...the dog does knock over my camera at the end lol.
