Ran into a nice couple in Pecan Creek South that are planning on moving here. Stock SF with the add on step rails.
Hope they will join our non club club...

Every morning at 6 am, I pass by the same FJ at Shea/92nd street but due to the fact that it's pitch black outside at the time, I cannot see what color it is (either black or BC). Looks stock to me. Maybe in the spring, when it gets lighter a little earlier, I'll be able to do a wave that he/she can see. Smile

We were escorted home tonight by a Black FJ from Rural and the 202 all the way to our exit at the 51 and Northern....he kept heading north. And yes, he did wave....twice!

That be me. I had a good hunch it was you guys. FYI- don't leave the shields on too long or it will scratch the paint.

BTW,The FJ is looking sweet! I am usually there Mon. and Wed. and Wed nights you can find me at Caseys having a few drinks but I didn't do that tonight.

Cheers,

They're just on for this weekend, but I'll tell you what, it's a huge pain to get those on right. I'm not looking forward to taking them off.

You got that right! I am dreading that I even bought them. They scratch the paint very easily even after washing your vehicle and cleaning the shields before applying them. Did you tape the edges? I couldn't tell when I was trying to get a better look.

P.S. If you think it will rain then I would recommend taking them off because a tiny bit of water will cause a haze to form on your paint and if it rains then the dust will creap in. Just a friendly advice. They do say not to apply the shields when they are moist.


Cheers,

Magnashields. They advertise on the FJCruiserforums.com

Some people like them and for some people it is not worth their time. So gather as much info and maybe offer to help install one before you buy one. This way you can see if it is worth it to you.

So you want to help install mine before Saturday? Very Happy


Cheers,

Yes I've done some taping, but I'll probably do some more before we leave. I could very easily see how this could scratch the **** out of your paint if you weren't careful and if ANYTHING got under there adn they started moving around. More or less defeats the purpose if it scratches your paint =T I did just have my permaplate reapplied though, so hopefully that helps. I applied them RIGHT after getting the car detailed, so it should be as good as it's going to get there.

I would be more than happy to help you apply yours on or before saturday. Are you heading to Sedonafest with us on friday?

I can't. I have a dinner event Friday night and I will be heading up with Don and Kurt on Saturday morning. I have a meeting to go to all day Sunday.

By the way. we should have our CB's turned on when driving the FJ in case another AZFj crew is spotted. I tried to call you on the Cb last night to warn you about the Speed camera's on rural but I noticed that you didn't have your Firestick connected and/or probably you were not monitoring it.

P.S. like I said I am usually at Casey's in Tempe on Wednesday nights between 10-12 pm in case you are down around ASU again.

cheers,

I think I saw you heading to (work?) this morning. I drive a blue WRX(turned sti) wagon most of the time.

Yeah I have a 4' firestick so I don't leave it connected all the time. I should consider getting a smaller one just for around town stuff. Tempting... Yes, I agree, great way to communicate with fellow AZFJers! I'll try to remember to have mine on next time. I need to find a better place to mount the mic though, it's always floating around my center console.

I did hit the speed cameras on Rural too. =( Sucked. I think the car in front of me got the the ticket though, but we were both definitely in the shot.

Thanks for the info!

It sounds like a terrible pain the arse. I don't value my paint job THAT much. It seems the hassle and the contact would probably do some damage anyways (like a front end bra).
