Gonna go get an emissions test done on the Bonne today. I'm also gonna buy her some wipers. I need to do an oil change but don't have the money. Been trying to remind the GF many times to buy the needed stuff since she'* the one with a job.

Guy dropped off a engine today that he wants a turbo build done on. I think I may have also found the cause of my truck stalling out, I hope. It'* been clicking when I turn the key, and then starts after a few tries. Today I hardly got that. This time however it seemed like a loose battery cable. I checked, connection was tight. I wiggled the wire, and then it started right up. I went back and wiggled the cable again. That'* when I noticed the connection was loose where the cable connects to the clamp. Yep, I was able to move the bolt by hand. So I tightened it. Only time will tell.

I just finished buying a bunch of led bulbs on eBay for my next little project. I can't wait to get them and put them in. They should look pretty cool

I figured out that I'm going to be replacing the valve cover gaskets and the coolant elbows here pretty soon on my car. Just gotta wait for a bay to open up in the shop so I can get it in there and tear it apart...

Ok, I need to go buy an oil filter for the Bonne so I can change the oil. I forget the part number for the one that fits but is a higher capacity.

Upgraded my rear brakes to 94+ brakes from a 1995 GTP. I also put on a 95 Lumina rear sway bar. Thicker than my stock one. With new moog bushings.
