Nah, some duct tape and a bobby pin will fix that line in a jiffy!

I had to remove the railing to my side door to bring some new furniture in my house. The railing was leaning on the side of my house and someone tipped it over into the side of the regal. It was dentless up til now......

ouch. today i went down to the cigarette shop and picked up a fun little tripe torch lighter thinking i could use it for light soldering on my external speaker wiring which i keep breaking the butt connectors off of. played with it about ten minutes and ran it out of fluid. put neon brand butane in it and its deader than a doornail. guess i should have bought the good stuff instead of the $0.99 stuff. lol

No 120v soldering iron Jason?
All of my wire soldering is done with a Weller 200-300watt, would be lost without it.
My favourite heat shrink tubing is Ancor Maine Grade , awesome quality.

ive got a cheap radioshack one thats great for small small stuff, not so much for the thicker wire though. i just thought the lighter would work well on the thick stuff.

Replaced the plugs last week, to solve an intermittent P0306 code. Turns out, the cyl 6 plug had almost nothing left to the electrode, and the other plugs were worn too. I'm pretty sure they were the original plugs. The car runs and idles so much better now with the new plugs. I plan on getting new wires soon to finish that off.

I also replaced my pcv valve. It was sticking and making a very loud ticking noise when the car was cold.

Another little project I'm continuing is my horns. I took out my stock horns completely last summer because they barely worked. My low tone didn't work at all, and the high tone was very dull. Initially, I just had a Fiamm Riviera air horn on there. I now have a Fiamm Freeway Blaster low tone added, and plan on getting the high tone too.
