Nice cool day, so I just took it for a long ride around the town. Can't remember the last time I went for a drive with no destination in mind. It was nice to just relax and drive. Love my niner to death!

My buddy gave me a custom piece of mesh/screen which is what he makes at work. Decided to make a custom grill with it.

I gave My Grand away.. I gave it to my oldest set of twins Grans Kids,they are 17 and needed a car to get them to school.
Then it only cost me $800.00 to give it to them.. We changed the oil in it and the air filter. I had it loaned to my homeless friend for about 6 months. So when I got it home an running again the trans would slip at times .. No wonder it was only 4 qt of trans fluid low. Then it needed a right front caliper . Then I had to put them a set of Goodyear Wranglers on it . That running bad problem It had .. I gave up & took it to a mechanic. It turned out to be a bad fuel pump . I'd just replace the fuel pump about a year ago. Then I filled it with fuel.
... I got a hug.

Plenum repair done. All buttoned up. Waiting for the RTV on the front and rear of the intake to dry until tomorrow to start it up.

So plenum, hoses, new coolant outlet, cap , rotor, and Cam Shaft Position Sensor. Valve covers will have to wait. I was going to do them while I had it all apart but there is extensive cleaning to be done and I ran short on time and beer.

1. Beer is always the precursor to repair.
2. Pappit it was worth it wasn't it? But you can't help but wonder,do you get a hug when you do nothing?

Have a slight problem. On the stereo there's a red with white and a pink with white. Both power. With my meter the one with no key on is half way on the sweep. Turn key on full pegged. So switched turn of for stereo correct? Then the other be constant? Has nothing to it ever? Blown fuse cause this? If so is that fuse in the pass side kick panel? Ill look real quick.
