Collected them over time. I rebuild them and sell them. But now I have to many.

Replaced a seized caliper on my Caddy the other day. I'm guessing it has been seized for 5 or 6 months because that'* when my gas mileage dropped by 5 mpg. I was getting 23/24 mpg @ 55mph. Now, it is 31/32 mpg @ 55mph. Also the car feels like it gained 40 hp.

Today, I welded up my exhaust on my passenger side on my truck from header to tip. Tomorrow, I'll do the driver side.

Yesterday finished up most of stripping down gunners Bonneville. And it would seem I had a little car meet. I think we had 8 cars total here, 6 plus mine and gunners. Was fun watching Wake do a spark plug change, even if it took him 6 hours. Today I think I'll pick over the carcass a bit to make sure nothing was missed.

I donated some blood, removed a bracket, which went flying across the parking lot. Then life was easy.

Well yesterday if you saw my thread I switched my subs and amp up and made that look a little better, sprayed it off and did part one of fixing the leak into my trunk.

Today Im going to finish detailing and do part 2 of my leak fix by sanding down the foam i sprayed in there and undercoating the inside of the wheel well with some left over undercoating, and put some sealant inside the trunk to prevent any more leaking. Also going to clean the engine bay up. If I get any more pics ill put them in my thread

So far today, I got gas, picked over the carcass sitting in the shop on jack stands, found a 3/16 socket that'* not mine, Gunner? Snagged a few plugs that were left over, pulled the rear brake calipers off. Now I'm going to relax a little before I go out and clear a little snow.
