So, a couple weeks ago, I ordered some leds from http://amazplus.com I got 30 leds for about $3.. pretty good deal lol

I replaced the ones I had in my cluster because they were cutting in and out when they pleased.

I think the contacts on the twist lock for the bulb behind my gas gauge are dirty.. that bulb has either gone out, or has just gone dim already. I'll take a look at it more when I'm done my exams. I also have to take a look at the led strip in my passenger footwell, and my under seat leds, as they have both stopped working too =/

I cleaned the shop, put things away, and hung some lights in the north bay.

Had the windows tinted on the Cutty. They look pretty sweet.

Put the starter back on the sunfire, drove around found out the battery is shot got a new battery, sprayed seafoam in vacuum and throttle body, then ran half a can in the gas tank half in the oil after i did an oil change ran it around runs great now, still starts kinda lame but it fires up now. Cut off the muffler the exhaust runs to the front of the rear axle now and sounds pretty cool I have videos on my facebook.

Next on the list is taking the heads off the check the gaskets considering there was a TON of coolant in that oil when i drained it so im checking those and for any cracks.

For the Buick I bought a Fel-Pro PermaDryPlus LIM gasket set from Rock Auto, and a "Sure Fix" Manifold Kit from ebay, should be here in a couple of days. I also picked up some bulbs to fix the digital DIC in the Grand Prix.

Replaced the hood lift supports on the 2001 Bonneville SSEi. Wonder why I waited so long, the hood was often falling on my head, and was using a broom stick to keep the falling from happening.

Replacing the hood lift supports is easier than replacing wiper blades. Only tool needed is a flat blade screwdriver.

I checked the old lift supports to the new. Removed, the old supports collapsed with zero effort. The new supports were very hard to compress.
