Had to pull the fuel rails again, had a fuel leak. Another damaged O ring. All better now.

This oil is only a week old and the only driving was the cruise around town. Not good.

Popped the snout open. Ya, not good. The rotors seem ok other then the coating. The coupler is fine. But found a tight spot on the snout. Bearing went out.

Just got a phone call. A 79 Vette is stopping over for a quote on a detail. He has another car he also wants done. Hurray, my detailing business is getting back on it'* feet. I was crushed last year because the road was ripped up all summer. Who'* going to pay $200 for a detail and then drive over a dirt road to leave.

It was stuck so e used a bigger wrench.

The guy stopped over for me to look at his cars. I'm detailing the Jeep on Wednesday. Gezz, looks like someone cleaned it with a SOS pad. It'* all scratched up.
