New VMR VB3's and side markers! Everything needs a good wash...but it's rained almost every day for the last month!

Replaced the differential fluid. Transmission is next. 105k miles, "lifetime" is over. Diff fluid looked pretty good, no noticable metal shavings.

My left thigh has been very uncomfortable in the new sport seats. Dropped the seat height, moved up slightly, and reduced the recline.

Side effect, my head sits comfortably on the headrest too.

Feels amazing now. A little adjustment makes all the difference.
Can't believe I wasted a month of my life driving uncomfortably.

Washed the dust and dirt from nearby construction off, cleaned out a little inside. And started making a shopping list, as my next raise hits in a month.

Wondering if I should tackle installing my h&r sports onto the car tomorrow, never done it before but just had the struts replaced with koni yellows so at least I know nothing will be seized up on me.

Retrofitted the wiring for heated seats. When I did my seat color conversion to black I got sport heated seats from a cold weather packaged sport sedan. Finally got around to doing the wiring for the heat. Now I have to buy the hvac relocation unit for the new buttons.

Used it to take a girl out on a first date. When I dropped her off she slammed the door.... looks like there isn't going to be a second date.

Hatched a plan and got to work... Lots to be completed in seven or so weeks if I'm to follow through on this four wheeled game plan, time to stop making more work for myself and get some **** accomplished (yet still time to post all that and cook it up, lol).

Its not near as bad as people say it is (9.5 out of 10). Its more like a 7 out of 10. I didnt use any type of special bushing tools. Fire is your friend and then just hammer and chisel over and over and over
