Every Friday evening for 2 hours and then Saturday for 4 hours, I work for the Pet Vaccination Clinic, http://www.petvacclinic.com
. I also took a road trip of maybe over 100 miles to visit a few towns and cities on Friday right before I left to go to the first clinic. After Friday'* clinic, I saw Iron Man for the first time. It'* a superior comic book movie adaptation, absolutely.
Then I went to an Indy Club Grand Prix (IndyCPG.com
) meet and saw a ton of really cool cars. I again didn't have the communal digital camera. The cars there are awesome. Some guy is running a 5% overdrive harmonic balancer, a 2.8" pulley, and an intercooled Gen 5 M90. It'* awesome. He has a custom candy blue paintjob inside and out, in every nook and cranny.
Then i found out my dog was run over. That is a shame.
I noticed my 99'* gas pedal was sticky, so I figured the throttle plate was really filthy. I took off the throttle body and cleaned it to a fine shine. New gasket, too. Some plastic vacuum tubes cracked by way of throttle body removal, so I rerouted some vacuum lines. I also detailed that engine and again wished I had my digital camera. Additionally, the SLE has now had a clay bar treatment with some wax and several washings. Soon after, I went through mud and rain. I'm washing and waxing again tomorrow, hopefully.
I looked over the weird exhaust tip mounting method I have in mind, and I found I could do it even more easily if I just spend a bit of time with the tips and my 24" vice grips.
As soon as I find the camera, they're going on.
Overall, aside from the dog getting run over, it'* been a fine weekend. Probably most productive was that porch job. Nicely done, Dan!
