First drive of the Cutlass for 2013 and I'm greeted with a vacuum leak and some white smoke. LOL

This is the exact reason why every time I got to a junkyard I have to get at least one thing. No matter how silly it is because any good part is a part worth having.

This vacuum line did some melting today.

I had to take the manifold and front exhaust off a 2013 sienna van and put it on another. The one that drove it to are dealership hit something. The van was a brand new lot vehicle. $3000 in damage just in parts.

I'm just running a Sylvania Silverstar 9006 bulb in the lows. The fogs were an H3 bulb originally. So I modified the housing, and converted it to a 9006 6000k light for the fog.

Very nice. Why did you swap the bull type though, why not just buy an H3 HID kit?

I need to put some CREE LED bulbs in my fog lights on my truck and see if they're worth a damn or not.

I really didn't want H3 HIDs. 9006s are much more common and I could easily get a yellow set made up and swap those in when I want.

The 9006 should be a lot brighter.

Been awhile since I posted in here...

Changed the front brakes/rotors on the 2000 Blazer.

Dragged rjblazer over to help me time the 5.7 Vortec going in the *-10.
