Yeah, I know I need to do all that... well, the tires don't need to be rotated, they are quite new, but all the fluids need to be changed and such.. first up is the oil, it looks pretty bad...

Oh, how do I get at the signal flashers? My left one is burned out.. the bulbs are all replaced, so its not that...

I've never seen an SSE with a luggage rack on the trunk....
amazing, there'* always somthing thats slightly different that surfaces..
well- i agree with dark shadow....listen to your DIC..one of my favorite things about these cars, they tell you when do do everything.
the paint doesn't apear to be all that bad really- clay bar in the summer will bring it right back. the rust by the rear bumper is common on 90'* and 91'*- my engineer friend is convinced it has somthing to do with indifferent metals back there causing rust. its just a bit of surface though.
your turn signal light is a bulb- its most likly the front marker light in the bumper. I've seen the same message come on my DIC and thats where the bulb was. Is a pain to get at- but undo the plastic flap above the HL and stick your hand down until you feel a wire and a cut out in the bumper, simply twist and the light should pop out.
give her a good cleaning- then you'll know what your dealing with...
reminds me of the 91....when her owner didn't care for her

I know its not the bulb, since I did replace it already.. the front signal light works, so does the marker light under the headlight, and the rear signal light works... the left turn indicator stays on in my cluster, and the right side works fine.. so flasher... no?

Yeah, the car is quite dirty.. especially the interior.. thats getting cleaned today when it warms up a bit more outside.. the outside is going to wait till next weekend... I just hate it when people don't care for their cars.. just like this old Bonnie... she needs some TLC to get her up to par... I'm just sitting here writing a rather long list of things that need to be done to her, that could have been done over time, that would have only taken minutes at a time to do, but now its going to take me hours, if not days worth of work to do it all...

I know what you mean. I'm sure that you will have her up to par in no time. It still amazes me how much it reminds me of mine when I got it...love the rims. Mine were so chewed up that they weren't worth keeping. I have a few of those center caps too.
About the DIC- sounds like a short if all the lights are working.
is the interior a light grey? I think that its called stone grey if im not mistaken.
I know what you mean with the lists...i always seem to have one. You'll be hooked on this car once you start working on her...I can asure you of that.
