You did. I didn't post on here. Just in the "What did you do..." Thread.

New windshield is in. It is truly amazing how dirty my old one must have been, because this is a whole new experience.

Cleaned the underside of the hood and added about 60 hp.



And a few issues I'm having.

#1. The coolant overflow lid fell off a while back. It had kept popping open, which I think is because part of the lip of the spout peeled off for some unknown reason. I could just replace the cap but I think it will keep happening unless I replace the whole bottle or rebuild the lip somehow. I temp fixed it with some clingwrap and rubber bands and filled the bottle. I doubt the overflow will ever get hot enough to melt it.



#2. The drivers side TRE boot already split. The TRE was funky ever since I installed it. By the time I had it tight, the pin hole was beyond the capture of the castle nut, and the boot had very little room. Even after greasing it, it never really ballooned. I am also curious if the tie rod is what the issue with the steering is. To me it seems like there is a slight upward bow between the tie rod and the TRE on the drivers side.





#3. Upper rad hose is rubbing on AC lines. I guess it shifted some from the WP install. I assume I'm going to need to drain the system partially, unclamp it and rotate it. May replace it while I'm at it.

My dorm is about as far from campus as you get while still being on campus (otherside of the main blvd into Raleigh) so I barely hear it.

Well that's good. I bet it's not so fun for those close to it.
