Was out for a run when I came across an impromptu car show at a local park. Unfortunately, the guy with the VW didn't have time to answer any questions and I missed a couple of vehicles that were gone by the time I got back with my phone to take pictures.

So does the fabric of your pants taste good? That was a hell of a pucker moment.

Guys with wheel spacers....are you using the red loctite or the blue? the red is described as a permanent "glue" on the loctite website. I could see using the blue in somewhat generous quantities, but the red supposedly only comes off after heating parts to 500 degrees for disassembly.

Yeah, but I've seen red loctite twist off studs at machine shops. What's recommended with the literature that comes with the spacers?

How bad has it overheated? All the way red or what?

And if you have gunk in your radiator like you said you did the other day, why havent you replaced your whole cooling system yet?

I just shoved a garden hose in where my t-stat goes and turned on the jeep and hose until all the fluid that came out was just clear water.
