Cleaned air filter on cobalt. On terrain changed air filter and replaced brake light.

The Grand Ma going under the knife again, new master cylinder and new front pads and rotors.

The extra income is nice, but I just don't have the time to fix shit myself anymore. :/

Got the Crapmaro running again..

New fuel pump, oil and filter change, new plugs, fresh gas and she lives! Running a bit rough but running non the less. Atleast now it will power itself onto the trailer for it's voyage to the new shop where I'll be moving to. I should actually have some room to work on it, hopefully I'll have some extra money to throw at it.. I have GOT to get it road worthy again, taking it around the block a few times was the best feeling I've had in a while..

Recently replaced my Sierra with a Sierra.  Added a Westin brush guard and Goodyear Wranglers.

Impala, new fuel, new exhaust from the headers to the mufflers (kept the tailpipes and tips because they tuck under the bumper anyway).  New tires on the back, 315/35/17 Nittos 555s.  Not bad so far.

Returned car back to stock with original plans of trading it in for a truck. But now thinking of just driving the wheels off it. Which could be another 15 years haha

Repaired a dime sized hole in the plastic intake manifold of the Ranger.  Apparently there is a plug that sits just behind the power steering pump that acts as a support and bearing for the Intake Manifold Runner Control system and over time it weakens.  Basically it just took a sudden closing of the throttle to create just enough positive manifold pressure to blow the plug out of the intake and have a hellacious vacuum leak.  Luckily the plug popped out in an area next to the PS pump that caught it so I could epoxy it back in.

Honda: Found the rubber hood rest knob the you twist to adjust hood clearance under the Honda's battery tray... It had been sitting under there for years. A lucky find, the hood has been sitting wrong for years.

Geo: reconnected the intake hose to the snorkel. I'm too lazy to use a hose clamp and fix it ATM  :lol:

Realized I need to check my brake pads bad because there was smoke coming from my front passenger rotor the other day, but I think that might have been from tie rod grease hitting the back of it...I hope that's all it was....also burned 3 full tanks of gas over the weekend...made me realize I really, really need to clean my air filter or just throw it away and start with a fresh one.

I am currently tearing all of the wiring out of my VW to get it ready for a new modern wiring kit. Goodbye bullet fuses and over loaded circuits.

The P.O. of this car did some horrendous things to the wiring in this vehicle and it's about 3 years overdue for some fixing.

Moved the Acura into my garage, because it sat for two week after the clutch went out and some crackhead decided to slash 2 of the $100 Michelin's.
