I looked at my transmission sitting there on the stand waiting for a new torque converter.

Put my license plate on my Cruze. Worked on my dash for my truck some more. I tried putting a new wheel bearing on a Hyundai Accent, but couldn't finish because I need a press.

Put more resin on my dash for my truck and will probably sand it down in 2 days. Also started building 4 speaker boxes for my truck. 2 boxes for my 6x9s and 2 boxes for 6x8s. All 4 will be the same size.

I put the transmission back in SExi. Just need a few more details to finish up and it should be running soon.

I need to buff my front marker lights and turn signals, they are looking really cloudy, luckily the head lights are glass and dont need maintenance.

I got my map lights working. One was burned out, and there was a bad connection somewhere, and the wires needed to be secured better to get a better connection. While changing the burnt out bulb, I stabbed my thumb with a knife..all I had on me to pry the cover off.. and I replaced all the interior lights with LEDs. White in the map/rear theatre lights, and blue in the front footwells. For some reason, when all the bulbs are in, the map lights stay barely lit when the switch is off, and suddenly flash when I switch on the high beams..but if i replace one bulb with an incandescant, it stays off like it should.

Tomorrow, I'm gonna try to tackle my transmission trouble.
