Default Stupid Plugs

Alright, I usually dont b**** about my car, but I swear to god, whoever was in charge of spark plug location for the 00+ should be shocked repeatedly with a taser. My arms and hands look like I got into a knife fight trying to shimmy my way in, and then the plug wires dont like to come off the plugs....btw, I will have pics of the old plugs....pretty ****ty lookin. Replaced with AL 104'* after talkin to Adam[sol] about stuff to put in with my DHP 1.0

Haha, yeah those back ones are always a b****. The worst is doing it in a minivan, since the cab comes up so far.

5 down, far driverside back one to go. my left arm is weak from tendonitis, so its a struggle cause i cant get my right hand in there. I already burned my pinky finger on my right hand cause i didnt wait long enough and the manis were still too hot.
