Changed the oil and filter, Replaced both front struts with used ones that have
Koni Sport Shocks. WOW! Doesn't feel like the front end is going to fall off when I hit a bump now.

OK, hope to post something more appropriate in the future,but today:
I covered my 944 in grinder dust while working on the sheet metal intake for my turbo motorcycle project.

I drove mine to work today to see if my coolant issue has finally been fixed. Verdict is still in the air on that one...

I drove mine to the lake to go spearfishing, so it smells terrible from having the lakewater-soaked Scuba gear in it on the ride home, AND now it's raining so I can't open the window to let it air out inside. Fun drive though!

I did a lot...

-Oil change
-adjusted clutch pedal (I mis-adjusted it a while back.... just fixing)
-checked CV torque (thank god cuz the RR transmission side wasn't torqued properly)
-checked transaxle torque
-remove/reinstall starter, re-route wires from when my friend installed it and blocked install of the heat shield
-put up all belly pans/heat shields left off from when I finished my clutch
- replaced switch in the seat so I could move it backwards under it's own power
-straightened the steering wheel

I enjoy reading this thread. Is there any way of this thread getting bumped to the top as a sticky ?

Had my splitter rip off, drove over it, splitter took out horn, then it sprung a leak in the lower rad hose and dumped a couple liters of coolant.

pulled apart the spare torque tube, found out the old bearings are horribly ruined, put new ones in the rubber pucks along with shiny new aluminum carriers. then i realized that the torque tube looked so ugly with all its missing paint and rust, even though it would never be seen once in the car...

because i can.

I read the installation instructions for my GTS headlights and died a little inside.
