Vacummed, washed, and quick detail sprayed the Camaro for my dad today. He got it in the garage now for wax, new brake pads, and Hurst short throw shifter install.

Yesterday, my dad got a new vacuum (wall mount) and installed it yesterday. I decided to test it out when I did the Camaro.

A wall mount vacuum? So does that mean, you have to pass the carpet/rug over the mounted vacuum cleaner to get it clean? J/K! That'* cool.

my mom has one its not that great because the head is almost as heavy and you are dragging the tube and a cord around instead of just a cord. the only benefit is it takes a while longer before you have to dump it but you have to go in the basement normaly and deal with a whole trashbag full of dust

nate, thanks for that post. my moms 02 hasn't had reverse lights for about 2 weeks now. ill have to look at that wire.

as for me, i didnt leave the house today, but i still worked on my little car. my older nitro rc car had a bad carb and i had a broken el cheapo 4x4 chinese ebay nitro car that i couldnt find parts for. so i took the engine off the chinese one, cleaned all the sludge out and gave my nitro evader st a new heart.

if anyone was curious i attached pics of what a nitro engine looks like on the inside. you can literally take these engines completely apart from the flywheel to the cyl sleeve in about 10 mins. its so nice to work on an easy engine. lol

It'* a pretty easy fix. I guess it'* a common break point for those wires because of the way they are routed.
