    Thanks Scottydoggs, it actually looks like the pan itself on the bottom is seeping... if that's possible. Can pans rust through?

    I had an oil pan rust through on a 2001 Hyundai Accent. Lost about a quart a week from oil seeping through. Finally replaced it and it didn't take much effort to push my finger through the rust. Owning a vehicle in the snow belt sucks.

    Seeing all these posts about oil made me remember after my intercooler install I needed a break from working on the car and I was shopping for some stuff at Wal-Mart and was like what the hell, ill just let them change it this one time.... Changed my oil myself a couple weeks ago like I normally do and come to find out they stripped out my frickin oil pan and had used thread locker and/or rtv to get the drain plug to stay in. F*CK YOU Wal-Mart.

    Where to start.... Well noticed car getting a little hotter than usual and sure enough water pump is starting to leak. So I figured well while I'm replacing it might as well pull the fans and radiator to get access to a broken exhaust manifold bolt.

    Get everything removed and figure since I'm this far might as well upgrade the coolant elbows to the aluminum ones. I tear into that and get everything off and clean ready to reinstall. Plastic elbows looked to be in good condition I know they were replaced because they had silicone around the o-rings and...... A nice hole in the rear valve cover from the alternator bolt. So I figured since I've come this far might as well pull both covers. So I'm just gonna patch up the hole with some fiberglass and clean them up and paint them. Also replace the gaskets. So yeah just waiting on the gasket to get here.

    Cruising down the highway on my way home from work today, a slammed lesabre with big chrome rims and a side exit exhaust passed me. Should have dragged his butt, but I'm living that 3.1 liter life lol.

    Nothing new with my Grand Prixs, the GTP will hit the quarter million mile mark next week or two. It will be due for an oil change. Been pushing toward some actual metal shaping skills over the last week or so at work. First time using the brake, english wheel, shrinker /stretcher, and bead roller all on one piece. I actually made a trunk drop panel and quarter repair panel. See link to pics, below.

    installed camber bolts at each corner today, damn things only been rolling around my trunk since spring. left the fronts as is cause they are wearing ok ish, but now they can be adjusted 100% right.

    but the rears i had to pull out, they looked like a 04 up gp with so much neg camber the inner tire was wearing out.

    amazing how much better the car feels even with out a proper alignment just eye balled em. need new lateral bars out back, they are frozen solid. 2 foot pipe wrench was twisting the bar. ordered em will swap em next week i hope, then get an alignment.

    I laid down primer, paint, and clear on the 3000GT project car. I did the jams, engine bay, and hatch. Tomorrow I can start bolting things back on the car.

    you know your working on a W body when you pull up from the area you'v been working over and .......... rust all over lol




    old bars removed



    new bars installed.





    job wasn't 1/2 bad. with a air gun. hand tools it would have taken twice as long and really sucked. and who ever said you just need to lower the rear frame some is a liar. it had to be fully unbolted then manipulated so you could get to the bolts. one time im glad the brake line blew out too, cause that was a non issue with the new line i installed years ago being the stock one runs in the rear frame.

    note the jack stand locations. eat your hearts out rot boxes lol
