    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    after 3 hours of waiting they are done just got home with her
    they got the fender lined up perfectly flush the way it should be

    and they even washed her and took a buffer to the front bumper where i got a few buffs and scratches with the 3m headlamp kit a few months ago
    they did that no charge of course they asked if i wanted it done because they didn't want to do something to the car without asking
    but they said no charge so that was nice

    the lady also came back and said we saw the hood and how it needs to be treated and refinished
    first she gave me a price of 650 with blending the fenders and all
    then i asked them about doing a spray out and not blending the fender just doing a spray out and just the hood she said 425 plus taxes which is about 100 dollars more then a used hood would cost in great shape so i think ill be back in June for them to do that

    also got the new Lower Door molding on
    i was waiting for the fender to be alighned properly before i put it on that one bad side they even saw it on the seat said we will put that on also i know could have taken me 2 minutes to do it myself but hey if they where offering why not

    the one thing that im not 100% happy with is that with the new molding it sticks out like a sore thumb the old moldings where 11 years old so they had faded a bit in the sun the shop manger said so if you really look at it you can tell the diference and since they are not color matched there really isn't anyting she could think of doing
    anyone have any ideas what to do or do i just have to wait untill it fades on its own to get it looking closer to the other ones
    i might just have them paint the rocker molding and door moldings when i have the hood done since they will have the paint already
    and have them color matched but until then even with a month it's not something i like seeing

    The stock wheels were so boring and the previous owner didn't take very good care of them.
    Dunno, could just be the angle of the photo. Regardless, you seem happy with them, and your wife obviously approved enough to let you put them on the car, so I think you're in great shape.

    The wheels and tint look good. The only thing "meh" about the car is the color. But I center see why she wanted that after having the red on the M45.

    I hate to be negative, but that M35x is one boring looking automobile! The tint and wheels merely confirm how boring the car looks. Now it just looks "tarted up" boring and I don't think a different color would help.

    No worries, to each their own. It had all the options we wanted and makes my wife happy; so no complaints from me. We drove the S80, A6, 535xi, E350 4 matic, and GS350 awd... talk about boring!!

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Sub when you say squzed it full you toped it off right ?
    i always thought doing that with the evap sytem just sucks fuel back into the pump if it can't go in the tank
    so isn't that wasting money ?

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Got my exhaust leak tackled! Woooooo! New header gaskets and ARP header bolts. The car is soooooooooo quiet now it's scary. I do not like this. Also replaced my 8th spark plug (I couldn't get to it with the headers in the way, so I was like "F*ck it". Gas mileage should increase dramatically from these changes. Adios 10 miles per gallon. You will not be missed.

    Going to work on building my cold air intake for it soon (mostly for the fact that the stock airbox is obnoxiously huge and makes it difficult to reach certain things. I do not expect a single iota of performance increase from it... I guess the intake sound might be kinda cool too).

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Went to the junk yard on my way home from work to get some lens covers for the lights on the front door panels of the Explorer. They were both broke off and it has been bugging me.

    While I was there though, something caught my eye.


    It's a 1993 Chevy Van 20 with the Gladiator conversion package on it. It actually used to belong to my father a few years ago. I knew it was his old one for a few reasons, but the biggest giveaway was the small wrinkle in the back bumper from where he backed into my '95 Thunderbird in the driveway one morning. This is the car he hit:

    And the resulting damage:


    I just thought it was odd to see a vehicle we used to have sitting in the junk yard.

    Nope, no wagons. They're not so common around here.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    I've seen at least one on the road both times I've driven this week. It makes me smile. I try and honk/wave at fellow wagon drivers.


    I'm weird.

    Just curious, but what does that giant toilet bowl ball thing do on that van? Its on the underside of the hood. I've seen this on other similar year Chevy "creepy vans".
