A couple other sites Im on, have a thread like this for everyone.

Rules: simple, tell us what you did to your ride today. Weather it be full out rebuild, or just took a drive, post it up.

Pics of any said work or drives are always welcome

I'll start:

replaced the rotor,cap, plugs, wires, cut the PS belt & modded a VR6 K&N filter to fit mine, since the PO took the filter out of the intake box for some reason and didnt put one back in

Tomorrow, oil change

my friend stopped by, took a look at my floors, now we know what he's going to do to patch them up

I also dusted off some of the yellow dust that fell onto the car from the pine trees around the house

I also opened the hood, and closed it

just went for a quick jaunt up to home depot, first drive in 2 wks.

got some amusing pics, pulled into a good spot near the door but someone left a cart in the way, not a big deal though.

gotta love driving a short car. still well within the parking spot

I replaced the momo steering wheel allen bolts because they were chewed up, and I'm about to sand down the chip touch-up I did last weekend which should be good and solid by now. Then I'm off to buy new cutting compound to finish that job and pick up a projector screen I bought online. It'll be a good sunday.

I contemplated delivering pizzas in it
Went with the beretta to save the pizzas from being slung to one side.

In about 30 mins I will be driving it to Cincy because I'm leaving to go to the Indy 500 from there.

Gave mine a swift kick in the butt for springing yet another leak.

Worked on a custom fiberglass plate to fit behind the dash speaker grill. It will hold a wideband o2 dispay and Power Perfect fuel controller.

Had new tires put on the Supercups, they needed it....and removed (2) original stone guards...already replaced the other 4. They were looking tired!

Fixed a vac leak that'd been stopping the car from starting. Tracked down one of my two cooling system leaks but not fixed it yet since it was too damn late and there were burgers on the bbq.
