Just got it recently and as soon as I got it home I put on a home made Spectre CAI and a Flowmaster 40.....today I replaced the radiator, upper and lower hoses, rotated the tires, installed new INTERSTATE batt., changed the oil,ordered new front bumper,installed new headlights as the haze cleaner didnt affect the look of the old ones any, installed new fog lights, put new shocks on the back hatch, swapped out some blown stock speakers with new Pioneers and a new JVC head unit, and finally took it through the local car wash.....next will be painting of the cladding when new bumper comes in......can't wait!!!!!

Last week installed new Battery and new Starter , was going to do hinge pins BUT the darn Waterpump decided to take a crap , never in my life out of all of the 74 vehicles i have owned and wrenched on have i had a water pump just suddenly fail , bearings failing , minor leakage from the sippy hole yes but i removed this 1 yeasterday (Fairly easy i may add once i found the belt tensioner) and felt tight but the inner seal i guess went south
anyway local parts store didn't have 1 but will this morning . So i will get to that as soon as the rains stop

Rushed home from school and drove it to buy parking light bulbs. First time driving it for real. It was great. Now to pay for gas

I am going to get new tires today! And probably an alignment too. Stupid pot holes in this city are killer!

Installing ARB bumper and winch.

It's been a PITA so far.

Changed the front rotors and pads.

Didn't really need to, but the guy at the inspection station wouldn't pass me till I did. After I got the old parts off, I swear there's at least 30k more miles on them.

I guess it's a trade off....he didn't give me any grief about my non-functioning parking brake, which would have been a bigger PITA to fix than front brakes.

Finally got my SuperCooler installed, haven't really driven it yet but after work Monday in the traffic it will get the real test. Link to where I found out about it
http://www.mallcrawlin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7801 It's super easy and very straight forward.

Cleaned my headlights and adjusted them so that i can actually see at night.

Gonna hook up my cheap Autozone fogs for the second time tomorrow so it will look a little better since I left my bumper off until I can get the KOR radiator support.

This is the cleaner I used, it works very well for the $7 spent.
