Yank checkin' in!

So great to see pic of the meets! Thanks for posting those :) These are my favorite threads... and the "ugliest car" threads when Kemo was very active.

Can't wait to hear about the tour of the Honda castle!

Great pictures.

I was planning to join you guys, but had to go to Mississauga and couldn't make it back in time. Oh, well. Maybe next time.

Just got "clean shots" of my new baby with 3 coats of Zaino and my accessories installed (the day I got it)
Amazing, your Pilot looked so bright and shinny ! Saturday morning was freezing and windy, don't understand how you could wash your Pilot on the driveway :confused:

Hey granite, nice to see more Toronto Piloteer from the forum, hope you can join us in the next meet. :2:

Well, I think freezing temperature was the reason OnHonda11 finished everything (washing, 3 layers of waxing) in just 2.5 hours:eek: !

Talk about creating friction. It was bright and clean that's for sure. The rock salt will be soft cushioned in the first 2 layers of wax:D

The benefits of having a a two car garage tucked in underneath of your second story. Nice and toasty. The 4x500W Hallogen flood lights do pretty well to warm things up. The only problem is that after 2.5 hours, the electricity utility has contacted the popo about a possible grow up in my house because of the moisture in the garage windows and my hydro meter flying:2: Sorry you couldn't make it Granite. Maybe next time if you aren't too busy building your palacial cottage! Congrats on that!

Scoobs, what type of wheels are you using for your snow tires?
They are Honda black steel wheels with a set of Walmart ($34.95 for 4) wheel covers. I wanted to leave it with just the steel wheels showing but the "boss" said no way.
I just got back from two days in Niagara Falls and the snow tires were nice and quiet on the 401/403/QEW trip there and back. The only thing I noticed was a bit more "squirm" on the ramps. I guess I should slow down.:D

Sunday was very busy for me. Up running errands in the AM. In to TO to meet the guys in the early afternoon, back home to Courtice to pick up my son for hockey and get him to the arena for 3:30 ( I made it guys, so you can figure out how fast I was driving, :roadtrip: , and people were still passing me ) ,back home after the game for dinner and packing, into the office for 2 hours of work, left work about 10:00 pm and finally made it to Niagara Falls and checked into the Hotel at 11:55 pm. I was bagged.

:eek: :eek: Scoobs I don't know how you did all that with all that energy:runaway: Must have been all the :7: . And that wasn't just coke he kept filling you glass with either. I know, I know you probably don't even remember eh! :D Glad you could make it even though your day was so hectic. I would have never known you had all that on except when you got squirmy when your wife called to see where you were and I knew you wanted to stay! A true Piloteer.

So fellow GTA'ers, Torontian's etc. look at the fine example of Scoobs and he still made the meet. Next time, no excuses or we'll publically:yodaddy: you if you can't make it! One request though... how about a warmer dryer day!:1:

:21: I know last time, even after you washed your car on your way to the meet, the black color still couldn't hide the road dirt ;).

Oh I see, very smart idea to keep the garage warm in winter so that you can wash the Pilot inside. I always have problem in washing the Pilot in winter 'cause I don't want to take it to the auto wash in gas station.

Hmm, can wash the Pilot indoor in winter :rolleyes: Donx, you know where to meet next time. :2: :2:

3:30? We were still in the restaurant drinking at that time! Now I believe you could drive at 175 kmh :eek: :)

:bootyshak ;) :bonk:

I still haven't been able to get the wife's car, she had to grocery shop yesterday, and has to bring stuff up to my son's school today....short 1 mile trips, and she won't drive the Falcon yet, which is a good thing :D

I still have to get that heater core flushed in the Falcon, but xmas shopping's been taking precedence. Chilly this morning, good thing I had a blanket covering my legs :20:

Guys,

Just finished reading the entire report. Too bad looks like I missed a really good time.

Great work with the camera and all the comparison shots. Really is nice to see all the pic's in a real world setting.

It has been a while since our last meet.

Some known updates:

Sunday Rider got new taillights!

After seeing our super white headlights, Mike688 finally replaced his OEM with Philips super white headlights. He is also eagerly searching for a good deal for side steps.

I have got o6 conversation mirror, superbrightleds interior and license plate LED lights, chrome exhaust tips, replaced the orange front signal lights, reconnected the siwtch cable for PIAA 520 SMR lights to low beans and got the metal tire valve caps replaced with plastic ones, I also followed Mike688's step and added driver seat cover. I recently got an iPod Video and portable DVD player and LCD monitors to watch movies/play games in the Pilot (not for me to watch though). I am also thinking of ordering chrome moldings to add chrome front grill accents and probably door handle accents, adding ski attachments, and also trying to figure out how to remove the orange corners of the front headlights. I have been trying to find out the place to buy 3M clear door edge protection tape (wwong no longers sells it, anybody knows where I buy it?)

After OnHonda11 seeing all rest of us having cross bars, somewhere in the forum, I saw OnHonda11 got crossbar installed?

Sunday Rider, Mike688 and myself have talked about another (mini)meet during holiday, but due to my family emergency, it has been postponed. Just wondering, anybody else interested in the (mini)meet some time soon? I have talked to another new Toronto Piloteer, Honda7, he said he would try his best to join us next time, if he could make it, we will have an 06 Silver Pilot to join our silver Pilot lineup!
