Kato Oil escapades, and FREEBIES ROCK!!!! (Suggestions?)
So.... We had an oiling party in mankato today. Both Smellbird and I were filling up with 5 golden quarts of Mobil 1 today. My weapons of choice were....
5 quart Jug of 10w30 Mobil 1 ($20) 4.3L WIX oil filter (8-9 bux i think) For those who don't know, the 4.3 filter is the same as a 3.8, just longer. Fram Sure drain oil system, the SD1 is what you want for the series II atleast. ($12 bux)
5 quart jug of 5w30, and an AC filter.
While my car was on the Jack, Seth and his buddy noticed my horrid air dam. Derek commented that he probably had a bonnie bumper out back. Maybe even the same color, Seth didn't think so about the color, but it was right! They got it free, so I did as well. A better condition matching bumper for free!!! I plan on repainting it since there'* a scratch but it'* still better then what I got now.
I'll most likely make up a grill before I put it on, but i'm looking at re-doing my main grill too. I'm looking for a Horizontal grill, like aftermarket truck ones. I'd like both to be like that. Any suggestions? I was also considering lighting up the word Bonneville in the bumper, and making a new way to mount the License plate (motorized?). I have the spare fog light leads, so I could use that switch to activate any system.
Any other nutty ideas for the bumper? Maybe shave the ribs on the front and leave them on the side?
