heat shield and window film

Heat shield was finished yesterday. Here it is "polished" and reinstalled. 200 grit, then 1500 grit, then 2000 grit, then a 3000 grit polishing pad and rubbing compound.

Today was very busy for work (online teaching and meetings these days). But beginning tomorrow evening I will get to an old unfinished project of using this film I bought on the windshield for solar heat gain mitigation.

Gotta go back into "Zoomlandia" for another meeting...

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
