Default 6 1/2 Hours later. Did some stuff today!

Started around 11 am. Went to adult friend'* house (hes my hookup guy when hes not in trouble...) went to the auto store across the street and bought new spark plugs, A/C retrofit kit, and some washer fluid. $52 While hes doing the plugs I'm shop vacing the crap around the hood.He told me the car was missing, now after he replaced the plugs it wasn;t anymore We have some trouble getting the A/C working at first but it was fairly cool on the way home. He had to go somewhere for an hour so I went to wal-mart and bought a sunshade thingy for the windshield, axe shampoo (girls at work keep saying I smell goooood )Grabbed a bite at DQ and headed back. More tinkering at the A/C for a while... After that we tackled the gauge cluster. 3 hours later, cleaning, disconnecting, reconnecting to no success :( 6 PM and I'm outta there. grabbed some rim cleaner and terry towels before I headed back home. So in short:

A/C is working fairly good now
The missing is missing now
Car is clean again thanks to the HEAVY I mean HEAVYY downpour on the wayhome and vacing the inside

He broke the left turn signal blub in the cluster find that out after we put everything back together
the steering column was rubbed by the gauge cluster alot and the tan stuff got all scrapped out :(
Couldn't fix the gauge cluster

Worth it...... Sorta....
