PostSubject: Its a sad day when M.Ross motavates me   Thu Aug 12, 2010 11:32 am

Working on the Janitors car (thank you to you guys that came up with that), and watching him scramble to finish it has really got me motivated, not the him sit around and watch me work type motivation, but the got my fat a$$ in gear motivation.

So working all day at work, and 3 nights of wee am hour labor (my new GF is not happy about that) i have done the following.

On the front
Removed all the lower front suspension
Painted the lower arms
painted the spindle uprights
painted the brake shields
Installed 4 new ball joints.
Installed Hotchkis front sway bar
Installed Hotchkis springs (front)
installed Hotchkis tierod ends
Installed QA1 shocks

On the rear.
Removed the upper and lower arms
Stock swaybar
rear shocks
Installed upper and lower new Hotchkis arms
Hotchkis rear springs
Installed QA1 shocks
Installed Hotchkis rear swaybar.

Under the belly
Complete Catback Flowmaster exhaust
Beat alot of the rust off. Laughing

Tonight if the GF goes off with her friends, i hope to install the front hubs, New brake pads on the front, torque the front ball joints, clamp the exhuast up, install the K&N filter kit.
And over the coarse of the weekend, find out why the CE light is on. And get an alignment.
Been alot of fun the last couple days.

Sounds like a ton of work. You keep working like that and you'll have a nearly new car.

You'd get along great with my uncle. He just remodeled his house and is building a new garage from scratch and all with a broken back scratch

It's got to be a generational thing. Most people nowadays miss work if they have a stuffy nose.

More like a work ethic thing.
Some people understand it early in life, many dont until later in life.
Thats the only relationship to age.

The fact that your doing all this with a boot means your beyond help but take it A LITTLE easy on it or it wont heal right
You'll end up hobbling around all sore & bitchy when you get old. (Dont ask me how I know Wink )
