Default Over the last 2 Weeks

Well, some of you have read about my "power steering" problem last week that turned out to be a Broken Motor mount and the brake squeel tab on the passenger side front wheel...heres ths pictures along /w other stuff for your viewing pleasure

ok well weekend before last started off with the car getting her bath...
hey something is missing....



eww bubble butt

before picture:

eww that was nasty...several things got under tht spoiler that i would not have guessed

then monday I found out the motor mount was broken and i needed new brake pads and turned rotors , teusday i removed the old, wednesday i installed the new:
car on jack stands engine on jack

broken mount:





new mount - $34

then its the brakes turn...

brake removal ..."GET OFF....COME ON YOU!......GAH!"



old rotors were too far gone to be turned.... so we got new ones
new brake rotors - $0.00, new pads $0.00 (dad knows the guy at Napa really well)

installed:

^Notice the Ford Blue^

It was also Homecoming Week for us at school, and i really really wanted the car done for thursday so i could decorate, and definatly by saturday for the dance, cuz i would have been stuck with the F-150, which is cool 'n all but not the same effect as my Bonnie, and by some miracle it all came together in time:
Glass Chalk stuff....worked fine...washed off easy enough, but its a pain in the hand to rub off....
