Got the 1500 all washed and cleaned up. Used Mother'* water spot remover on the windows, came out really good. Tackled the inside and tried to get my Sirius radio to work with the Direct FM adapter. No dice. (See audio thread). Stupid antenna adapter I bought was garbage, so I gotta find a better one that doesn't fall apart.
At least while I had the dash apart, I re-ran a few wires down through for a cleaner install on my GPS and my phone charging dock.

Hmmm, well started my monday off with a tire repair. Then did a maintenance inspection and oil change on a 06 DTS, estimate provided for brakes, declined because he was buying a new car, then why the hell would you waste 120 bucks on an inspection then if you're trading it in?! Then did a 4 wheel brake job, transmission service and a couple odds and ends on a Trailblazer. Finished off my day with a PDI on a 2013 Sierra and a 2012 SRX. Not a bad day.

Rustang came in for a free oil change and brake inspection. We found this.





So, free turned into $440. New parts = front pads, front rotors, and drivers side front caliper.

The rears also needed new pads, but they were passable.
