    Default What did you do to your 1st gen today?

    I have seen these on other forums and didn't find one on here with the search. So lets start one. As the title states, what did you do to it today?

    I chiseled and sanded the rust off my sway bar, and primed it, (will paint it tomorrow), ordered new sway bar bushings, drained the oil, changed the serpentine belt, flushed the power steering, reattched the power steering lines to the rack, flushed and half-filled the coolant, put a bunch of new bolts/nuts I had to replace (including all 8 coil bolts), pulled my charcoal canister to get easy access to a wiring harness grommet, started making the power lines for the two stereo amps I'm gonna install, mounted the two fuses for them on the fuse box cover, and scrubbed the rear corner of the engine bay behind the charcoal canister.

    Had a BUNCH of stuff I've been doing over the past few weeks, when the dang weather cooperates. Got a LOT more to do, too.

    Overall, I've had a good three straight, solid days of working on my double-nut ('00) 1st Gen....Hope the weather holds more, but I think we got rain/snow coming for a few days starting tomorrow.

    I looked at it waiting for the Fed-Ex guy to show since my lower ball joint was supposed to be delivered today.

    Most I did was walk to the end of the block and get a coffee and then work on my benefits elections for next year if I still have my job.

    Now, I'm getting the package redirected to my folk's address so I can pull apart the front end tomorrow and reassemble it with the new LCAs minus a strut until I get the bushing pressed in Monday. Lower ball joint should show up by Tuesday or Wednesday.

    NOT a happy camper. Is anyone else having a bad streak lately? Must be that end of the world thing approaching!

    Swung the garage door open, leaned up against my work bench and marveled at what a handsome and competent truck I bought for such little ca$h outlay! Oh, it's a beautiful thing!

    Swapped in some LEDs (license plate, doors and HVAC) gave her a bath and applied another coat of klasse sealant glaze. Some 303 on the tires, then went for a drive!

    I drove mine to work and then to get my son and back home - 19.8 MPG AVG. I thought about what I need to do with the new scoop design, wondered WTF was making the popping/clunking noise from the front, thought about how much money I have saved back for whatever the repair might entail (none), wondered if I would ever get around to ARx'ing the transmission, thought about new tires for winter (stressed over money again) and enjoyed the sound of my exhaust while running a chrysler 300 off the road for trying to change lanes into mine with no turn signal and nearly hitting me.

    Tomorrow I will drive it again.
