      replaced all my coolant temps sensors
      replaced oil cooler o-rings

      tomorrow replacing the oil filter housing gasket

      and until my "package" arrives, i'm obsessively keeping track of my DHL tracking number

      ^ sweet ride

      i found i have an oil leak

      i put a cardboard under my car last night, and yup, sure enuff, there is oily drip spot. i hope its not a major prob - any thoughts?

      my guess is oil pump or oil pan.

      i installed keyless entry, scored 2 free remotes from work for it, wired up the city lights, and put in yellow fog bulbs.

      started it up for the first time since august, drove it into my garage, did the mk4 rear caliper upgrade, replaced the parking brake cables, and started on the strut bearings.. spring makes me do funny things, like work.

      I fixed my rear tweets.

      The connector had broken off of the back of the tweeter and the solder joints were toast.

      I thought the speakers were dead so I got a little emotional when I heard sound coming out.

      Fixed holes in rear floorboard. There were two on each side.

      I then put in new lock cylinder in the driver side door.

      I then lastly finished by putting new reclining knobs on both front seats.
