      Changed my cam follower, changed my oil, replaced a brake light, cleaned my wheels, then took a picture of it.

      I do have the dogbone, but its falling apart. Whatever bushing we used was a real POS. I think that may be my issue. I always figured if I upgraded one I should do them all to keep things the same. Now what if I was to replace with factory parts? Should i still do all of them at once?

      On my way home, got 2 blocks from my house, and heard a bang, and rev'd out. Broke drivers side axle, FML! To add fuel to the fire, having no luck finding one locally and the possible places that I could are closed on sundays. Guess its time to get hammered

      Planned on installing my exhaust, but it rained after work till dark. Also went to get my intake from ups since i wasn't here when they tried to drop it off but they were closed for thanksgiving. All and all a very unproductive day. Did order myself a new rear sway bar though

      Better make sure she lowers it.


      Wash, clay, wax to get ready for snow. I don't have the heart to raise it back up for winter yet.

      If I want a louder horn I have an airhorn off a NYCTA R12 Redbird (Them red subway cars almost anyone remembers from New York). Ill hide a tiny air compressor someplace and put that behind my grille. That will get your attention from a mile away.

      And late last week started smelling like a wet sock everytime i turned on a/c, and i think its giving me some type of congestion too, now it is at local dealer getting de-odorized... hopefully it cures it... love the car otherwise!
