Not me but getting the fuel filter done now. Pretty cool stuff going on now.

The other day, I got the exhaust cam sensor replaced...

Today, I washed the ol'beast, (it has been raining/T storms here every day for weeks), Zaino'd a few areas, and tossed in a new air and cabin filter.

Still running fine at 85,000 miles and nearly 11 years old. 2nd best car I have every owned, in nearly 50 years worth of cars.

What caps did you get to seal the holes? I was thinking about doing mine as well, I never use the rails! And just clear silicone to seal right?

(2) 5/8" & (8) 11/16" caps

Yeah I'm assuming the clear silicone seal should be all I need. Yesterday I worked late and started taking the rails off as soon as I got home, got them off and drove out to Lowes, popped the caps in at the parking lot, by the time I got home it was already raining. They're a pretty good fit so I doubt much if any got in.
