Very nice, Canadian vendor ?
Looks like a white madness garage knob. I have one very similar, but mine is grabber blue and has the auto pattern on top.

Well.....trying to keep my mind off my dogs. Both are getting up there in age and both are showing signs of congestive heart failure.
It's been rainy and muggy this last week and my MACh 1 was filthy! This morning was actually dry and cool. 6am I pushed her out of the garage so I didn't wake the house or neighbors and filled the wash bucket. Spent about a hour cleaning wheels and calipers. Took a break and had some coffee etc. and then washed the body. By then it was 8am. and I could start the blower to dry her off. She's as clean and pretty as Day 1 !
I looked at the mileage and she was @ 5015 miles and oil life was @ 10%.
I moved the wife's car outta the garage and put mine in the center. Time to put her up on jackstands and drain the factory oil! I've had 15 quarts of Pennzoil Ultra Platinum sitting in the garage for a couple weeks now, but all 3 of my local Walmart's have been outta Motorcraft FL-500s oil filters. The Advanced Auto Parts store 3 blocks from my house had them, so no more putting it off! They also had a really cool set of DieHard "Grabber Blue" jackstands on sale that matched my car! Lol !
I've been putting off changing the oil because of what I've read here and seen on videos of what a PITA and mess it can be ! Got her up on the stands and warmed up to operating temperature. Shut her off and crawled under and pulled the drain plug. Ya;ll were right.....10 quarts like a fire hose! Next....the dreaded oil filter! Pulled the trap door and took my first look. Pulled the cardboard divider outta a Costco wine case and stuffed it up around the filter to deflect the mess of removal! The divider actually fits perfectly! I should have checked my plastic oil filter cup wrenches, but I thought the one I had would fit....nope! Reached up and to my surprise, I was able to loosen the OEM mini filter by hand. Cleaned up the filter area with Brake Clean and a rag and let her sit and drain til about 10 pm....the drips had stopped. Put the filter on and plug back in, Brake Cleaned and wiped everything down. Off the jackstands and pored new oil in....reset the Oil Life.
All in all.....not as bad as I had visioned and a great distraction from life for a day! it's 3am and my wife and dogs are snoring.....she woke me @ 1am as she was worried.....Another day ahead! Going to be a 2 pot of coffee day!! LOL

FYI Don't waste your time this thing was NOT causing my rattle. On bumpy roads its still buzzing away lol. So I am going to pull the dash side that holds the sunglasses and go for a drive might be something inside there causing the buzzing noise.
Similar dash buzz issue here, drives me insane but sounds more like it's coming from where the windshield meets the upper dash. Will be curious to see if you guys get this figured out.

So sorry to hear about your dogs. They can definitely become as close to you as a family member. Ours is 9 and has seizures and dementia, a distraction like Mach attention is definitely good for your mental health.

I did mine in 2021 when I got it with CQuartz ceramic . it has not even been in the rain yet, LOL. White cleans up nice !
I seriously considered white over silver when placing my order. Not many cars look as good in white as ours do!

Plus one on the CQuartz, Highly recommend it. Applied it after 5 miles of taking delivery and it still looks spectacular almost two years later. Used it on my Ram as well, Took forever, ugh what a difference in acreage of sheet metal between those two vehicles!

Well it sure looks great! Yeah, I think I’m really gonna like this white. I would probably not have thought of it on my own as a first choice but it’s what they had that otherwise suited me. Now that I’ve lived with it a whole day I’m really starting to dig it. Even more important my wife likes it and that makes things a lot easier for me.

I agree Mike. And that’s some serious bead porn you got going there!

I can relate to that. My pup is in bad shape and I'll have to make a decision soon. Breaks my heart. I'm spending as much time with her as possible.

When I go to the Track attack next year, I plan on driving down just so I can hit the tail again on my way home. I did that last year with my Explorer ST coming home from the ST suv driving experience.
