Clean, detailed, and changed the oil today.

Still have a leak from either the oil pan or timing cover... *sigh.. Not terrible and probably not worth fixing, but will make another thread to see.

Last snow fall my wipers must have been inadvertently turned on with a windshield full of heavy snow. Fast forward to yesterdays rain and the wipers decided to stop vertically instead of horizontally. So, for the fourth time, I removed the cowl and wiper blades to see what the heck was going on. I found the nut for the actuator arm in the wiper transmission was 180 degrees off. So, after trying to find a an angled 12mm, I ended up using pliers to get it loose enough to reverse it. Then it was easy to get a wrench on it.

Prepping the car for a camping trip. Going to frame in a box where the passenger seat was. Got a cooler, camp stove and other things all going up in the "front box." Deciding if I need a second H7 battery each is good for 80Ah. Guess I'll test it out first as I could put that 500 for a battery in a better place.

This is an add on to my other window post...

After receiving a notice that the window I was waiting on for two weeks, was broken at the fedex facility....wait for it... this is after I had taken out the broken window to prep for the glass that was supposed to be delivered later that day. We are heading to the track this weekend with a two hour drive, didn't want to drive the whole way there and back with an open window. made a window out of plexiglas.... used the tint off of the broken window... it fit perfectly... even put it in the clips on it to the window regulator.. surprise.. surprise It works up and down just like the real window. you can see it flex when you slam another door though..lol

sweating is leaking, but not dripping....the whole hose is wet, the whole frame rail is wet, but never a drip on the ground, and never changes fluid level

like the start of a leak

today was first day i actually cleaned the area a bit, i dunno where its leaking, gotta figure that out

yep those transcooler lines are infamous for leaking mine literally were rusting order them now while you still have time. they are not that hard to do. depending on how long they have been leaking after you fix it and fill the car to the correct level you will be suprised at how well it shifts all of a sudden.lol

Nice what speakers did you do ?
In my project thread...

They're JL audio C1-650 2 way component set. Was originally going to use a herts uno k165 passive 2 way component set as it has a interior matching grey cone but got these , jls, for the same price due to no stock and are much better quality. So the Hertz will be going in the rear doors eventually.
