Replaced the brake on off switch behind the pedal.... I wondered why over the past month I couldn't disengage cruise control, until some lady yelled that my brake lights weren't working.  Searched it on SHO forum and the switch controls the brake lights and disengages cruise.  Then realized I had been driving for over a month with out brake lights  :lol:

Changed the oil in the cobalt, and cleaned both the air filter in the car and the air filter in the truck. Added a strut bar to the car a while ago.

Changed trans fluid in the winter beater, swapped the starter for one we had laying around (hooray for starting exactly the same... fuel issue!), fresher plugs.

Added oil to my pile.

The oil pressure gage was sitting on the zero-peg :lol:

I think it's time for a new motor.  May as well be a two-stroke right now.

Disabled the axle disconnect on my Jeep.. All of the retarded plastic vacuum lines basically shattered since the weather got cold and I hit a big enough bump. The main thing affected was that vacuum disconnect. I don't need it anyway... all it did was take forever to work (if it decided to work at all)

Installed a new head unit in the Crapalier to replace the stock deck so I can listen to my Sirius via the aux port instead of the shitty ass FM adapter thing, as well as charge my iPhone from the head unit too.

Gotta replace the dash panel still (scratched?) but eventually.

Acquired steelies for the GA. Waiting on a set of tires next, and a set of Impala 5-0 center caps ordered. :mrgreen:

Dunno if I should paint the steelies gloss black or plasti-dip them.

Just got word from my Father in law, the 502 is out of the truck now and on the stand.  Soemtime in the next week, I'll find out what the damage is, and I'll have to decide if I want to get it fixed, or just put the high mileage 454 back in it and save the 502 block for another day/project (Monte Carlo SS?)

Put on my snow tires.

Wash, wax, leather protectant, Armorall, towel dry, wheel shine, vacuum, etc.

I went nuts, but I haven't done it in a while since the weather is headed South.

Snow tires.

Oooh, I do need.
