First mods

Wind deflector delete. Laminar air flow restored! [That's an aero joke.]

Also deleted 1.25 deer whistles [remnants = the black squares in front of the upper grille].

Tires are aired up.

Floor mats & windows cleaned.

Oh, and I confirmed the sway bar end links are the likely source of the front end clunking on bumps - I can rattle them by hand. Apparently it's a common issue.

That's enough Fit monkeying for this weekend.
