Everyone was busy today:

I finally visited AZ today (~5pm), spent $4 on the Meguires PlastiX. An hour later I had cleared the headLamps of my 94 ZJ & 93 Talon. I huge difference and very little elbow grease. I can actually see into the headlamps, the Talon came out clearer butboth look great compared to the old perma fog look.

I replaced the flipglass latch assy because the release solenoid went out a few days ago. Works good now. Last week I got free one of those roll-up cargo covers that hooks into the liftgate and it matches the interior. Also a free console lid bottom that has the locking tab still on it. Now I can't open the console if the kids have a drink in the holder!

I bought a Rancho RS5000 a while back before I really knew what I was doing...if I could do it again I would buy an Old Man Emu. I notice a little difference at like 60+ mph, but I still get some serious wobbling from ~50-55 because my tires don't all have even treadwear on them

I took the throttle body a part and cleaned it, and also relocated a family of sparrows that decided to take up residence in my KMA bumper.

Here's some pics: Oh and I had gloves on, so hopefully the mom will still feed them.

I cleaned a bunch of safety glass out of the back of my GC and then pulled a bunch of safety glass out of my fingers...cause it's not so safe.
apparently last night some model member of society felt like walking through my parking lot breaking windows, so i got pulled out of bed at two am by some cops letting me know that my car was a victim of "criminal mischief".
so what am i doing tomorrow with my GC? hopefully running over some jerk who's forced me to spend my entire paycheck on a new window.

new headlights

I replaced both of my old yellowlights with nice new crystal clear headlights. Yea!!!!

Also opened up the doors and liftgate and let the interior dry out. I left the windows down yesterday when we got a freak downpour.

The other day I was sitting at a stop light and I see this bird fly out from in front of my bumper and I asked the wife, if she noticed that and she said maybe it was just flying really low and we just didn't see it from the other side. Anyway, I go out today to clean the throttle body and I hear this chirping and after a little searching I found them. I guess because I only drive it once a week, they thought it would make a good home. Funny thing is I know I've driven it several times in the last week, so they had to be eggs at some point. I guess that says something for the ride of the GC huh

I even had to drive it around today to get some parts when I was working on the car. I bet they crapped themselves everytime I started up that thing, it's pretty loud.
