Default The Ymmot04 Project.

I just bought 8 oil filters, Trans filter, 2 gallons of dextron V, LIM gaskets, UIM Gaskets, Injector o-rings, 10 Quarts of oil, radiator, impact bar, impact bar bracket, 2 modified fog lights, bumper cover, hood, just a few things...

Now you may be asking, what do you need all of that crap for? As some of you may know, the car in my siggy is no longer my daily driver, it'* been sitting in a shed since the beginning of winter after a run in with a drunk driver. I am currently driving a 2003 SLE that can't hold it'* coolant in. This weekend I'm moving to get both running in tip top shape.

The SSEi is getting fresh oil, spark plugs, and a piggy back ride to the body shop for a little frame work. Not a whole lot happening to it this weekend, but there is much more to come.

The SLE is getting a trans dump and refill along with a tear down of the engine to figure out this coolant issue its having.

I found out after all this time its actually cheaper to have both cars insured, one as a daily driver and one under storage than to just have the daily driver on the policy. It'* also easy to swip swap coverage so the ultimate goal is to get the SSEi running again (hopefully by the end of July) and put the SLE into storage as a backup vehicle/winter car.

My kind of maintenance. Question, why Dextron V instead of Dextron VI?

8 oil filters because I'm putting on 500 miles a week and they cost $13.50 at the local parts stores compared to $8 online.

You caught me Mike, never been great with Roman numerals. It'* Dextron VI.

I'm excited to get it rolling as well, very excited.

Unfortunately I got some bad news today. The bank called and wants $900 in interest paid on my school loans and the friend I generally borrow the trailer from said it'* got a wheel bearing out and he doesn't know if he'll have time to replace it by then.

That one two punch puts a bit of a damper on my plans to get the SSEi out. Still taking Friday off to tear into the SLE though and hopefully seal it up. Wish me luck?
