Default Bill'* Tip of the Day

Don't forget if you are in a winter climate that your windows and mirrors could use a good washing from time to time.

There'* too often that with the sun lower in the sky and a dirty mirror we may not see the cars around us as well.

Don't kill a Bonneville over a dirty window or mirror.

Bill you forgot to mention if your in a winter climate this will also get rid of the salt on the vehicle. If you use a rust inhibitor in your wash this will further slow the damage salt can cause on the paint and body of the car!

Lets see car wash...check

brakes...F-body calipers with 12" slotted rotors and ceramic pads, not til spring

oil change...needs to be done, but Monday looks good

motor mounts...yah that front one has gotten ripped apart not even a year after it was put on, just can't handle the torque, time for the hockey puck mount!

I haven't test fitted the parts but I was told they will work, I have all the bolts that are needed for it to fit I think as well as a few bushings
