      Replaced the fuel filter. Eliminated my bogging at low rpm's and the rotten egg lean smell from my exhaust. Best 15 minutes I have ever spent on the thing.

      If people carved their names on my hood, I would carve mine on their faces. Anyways, looks good

      Ok so I decided to change my driver side axle... proceede to remove the three bolts from the ball joint. Then I realised that I didn't have the tool to remove those six bolts from the axle. I got one and removed the axle finally. I strted to put the damn grease on the new one when all the F#@k!ng bearings just fell out!!!!!!!!!!! WTF??????????!!!!!!... what the hell so now my frigin car is left at work in the garage.. hopefully I won't get a runaround tomorrow... imma frigin FLIP!!!

      Put the bearings back in. It's like a puzzle. Just look at it and figure it out.

      All the axles i get have zip ties holding the bearings and race in place. I leave them in until i'm done packing the joint with grease, that way the bearings won't fall out.

      set up an appointment for the car to go into the shop this friday for a looooong list of overhauls, goodies, and bodywork. as much as i want to put work myself, laziness trumps my days -- i'm hoping to get my love back for the mk3. i'm giving it one more go... wish me luck.
