    Yeah I have a feeling I'll be buying a set of 17s this spring. And snow tires for the following winter.

    Have a pile of parts stacking up. Oil pan is on my purchase list, solid lower engine mount too. Have a new oil pan gasket, valve cover gaskets, DIC and fog button setup to LED swap, oil change to do when the pan gets done, gentex rearview mirror to replace my garbage Donnelly stock unit, a trunk lid spoiler to paint and install, and a thorough spring cleaning.

    Man do I have my work cut out for me.

    Oh I knew I was forgetting something. I have a front window regulator to install and the Two rear window in/ops to Diagnose.

    And I'm again forgetting that the back window needs replaced. The peeling blue tint looks like hell.

    Oil pan is out. Took a solid half day of it fighting me to get it though. Also swapped out the dog bone bushings for the poly ones and got shorter dog bones with new rubber bushings.

    Oil pan swap wrapped up. Found coolant coming in through a lifter. Looks like my planned valve cover gasket job just turned into a LIMG job.

    For your rear windows being inop. Likely there's a broken wire in the rubber wire boot that goes into one of the rear doors. You can push/pull them a bit to see if you have broken wires. It's fairly common

    That badge is so small, I doubt anyone even noticed.

    My GS had those same chrome wheels as yours, and mine were junk too.

    It's been sitting since I started the oil pan job. It's just been on my nerves. I tend to leave **** alone when it pisses me off. I'll have it on the road again soon. I don't have a/c in the truck. Coming home from work in this recent hot spell has been brutal.

    It's noticeable. It's the only really visible badge back there. I has some guy in a GTP turned and highway pull me after he hung out in my plans spot looking at the trunk.

    I had to put air in the tires again. Almost flat. I'll run them as long as I can. The rears are down to the wear bars. The fronts are better but not by much.

    Got it all back together this weekend. Sadly on the test drive, the dripping fuel line turned into a steady leak. So it is once again parked until I can get my hands on some stainless lines. Wedding is a few more weeks out. So I'll probably wait until after that. I need to focus on it more than anything right now.

    where you leaking? fuel line to the rail? if so you just need to pull the o rings out of the line and replace them.

    congrats on the wedding. have a blast.

    Under the car behind the back door. I'll find some stainless lines for it. It was bound to happen. They're original.
