Put new brake pads on a 93 G20 van.

I put the fuel rails together for my truck and paint the throttle body. Also installed the cts, temp. sender, thermostat, radiator, upper rad. hose, and lower rad. hose.

i went out and fixed the stupid snowblower, the spark plug boot came right off the wire. then i went out and played in the snow with the quad. tried to take a vid for the first time (I know the quality sucks i really just wanted to see if it worked). i think im going to have to mount it to something. anyway im going up one of my trails, through some of my pines, and along one of my ponds.
