Good stuff on sharing the ABS fix, I bet others will have a like issue.

I learned the hard way as well, I do mine every 50k, and I still have at least one wire that will break, requiring me to lay on the motor, have a few knuckles bleed, let out a few curse words, and struggle a little with some pliers, it is never a fun experience, but afterwards it feels good knowing you did it yourself!


I have gotten in the habit of saving my old wires that are still good, just in case when changing plugs I have a wire break, that way if I decide to replace the set of wires I can still drive the car if need be till the parts come.

Cleaned up the Cutty and vacuumed it. Going to be storing it for the winter months. I will get the VW out of storage later today and change the rims on it for the ones with the winter tires. I'll toss it up on the lift and oil spray it.

Another quick exhaust video. I now have around 100 miles or so on the mufflers.



I really should take a video with my good camera.

I've been helping my dad rearrange our 3-car garage so we can get 2 cars in it again. Currently, we can only park 1 car in it. And my car is the car that my dad prefers in the garage (middle spot, and the tool box is against the wall in that spot, so my car is small enough to have reasonable moving room, I know from experience how much the moving room sucks with either the Camaro or Grand Prix in that spot, especially the access to the tools) until we get this mess cleaned up. I'm only bothering with this because my dad wants to park the Camaro in the garage during the winter months, and wants more than enough room when he waxes the Camaro and Grand Prix (he likes to have the 2 spots in the garage so he can rotate the cars in the garage and work with the garage door closed). There'* just a tad bit of rearranging left to do, and then my car just needs to be nudged more to the other side so we can assure no doors hitting each other.

My parents ordered a Tuff Shed, and it got built the other day, so that helped clear out a bunch of stuff that doesn't need to be in the garage now. Only big thing left to move to the shed is my dad'* factory Camaro hood. He wants to get it mounted in the shed, and that might happen today when he gets home from work or tomorrow since he has the day off.

And here'* a couple before pics of our garage with the GP in it.

Have three car garage, only park one car in it.

:firstworldproblems:

The girlfriend and I just moved into a house with a two car garage. Hopefully we'll always be able to use both spots.
