What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

Installed the new parking brake brake lines and shoes on the Saffron R.

Left side is perfect, can slip rotor on and off without issue; right side wont even let me mount the rotor...

All pieces look to be properly mounted, adjuster sitting in the correct spots on the shoes.

Anyone have tips?

Also fixed my minor exhaust leak.

got to do some troubleshooting on the s70 this morning, then took it on a 4 hr trip...   Had sputtered out on me yesterday, had pulled codes for random misfire and cam sensor. ..   swapped the cam sensor and it started but was still misfiring, pulled a code for cylinder two, swapped the coil pack - no dice, checked compression and it was good, tossed a different plug in there, nope...   pulled the injector rail out and injector #2 had fuel bubbling out of the nozzle ...   tossed one of the original (300K) injectors back in and all was well ..   the injectors in the car were from my 02 motor and only had like 125k on them ... I had put in some STP injector cleaner earlier in the day with a fillup, seems a little too coincidental ....   anyways its fixed.

Adjusted the parking brake.  Not an easy thing to do with the S60R rear brakes as it requires you to pull the rotors.  No convenient adjustment hole like the 850 rotors have.

Also determined my passenger side suspension noise is a worn ball joint, so ordering new control arms.

Put about 600 miles on the XC over the weekend driving myself and 3 friends down to a festival in Ohio. I know it might not sound like much, especially compared to the posts of what yall are doing in this thread lately, but it's a great feeling to have zero car hiccups on a long trip with a car packing 4 big guys and about 2000lb of gear. I'm really loving the overall size of the car and the power of the 4.4L.

Started removing things in the way to replace my 20 year old oem rad in the R to a new do88se one :)

Also putting the new Snabb intake manifold spacer on in the mean time, removing AC compressor and putting the shorter OEM serp. belt on.

This past weekend made some brackets and mounted the Hella Supertones in the bumper but not like all the subie kids these days.
