What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

Recommended Posts

Installed the bitch of a rear sway.

:lol::lol::lol:

They aren't that hard to do, but they only go in one way. :) No one seems to get this.

I fixed the first one. But I have 2 anyways, just didnt want to destroy another one. :lol:

I also washed my car, took pics for IPD, and got a ticket.

I'll post a thread when I get my card reader so I can upload the pics.

Oops. What did you do ?

I fought with the wagon some more and looked for a cliff around the house when I could push it off. Didn't find one. :(

do you think there is a relation between your earrings being in and you being un-employed? LOL

jk?

:lol: :lol: :unsure:

Wait till you get your AEM Uego, then you can make a thread complaining about your AFR :lol:

Haha, not looking forward to it......although I'd kind of like to monitor the AFR's a few hundred miles or so before I dyno just to see what's going on a little better with the tune.....I just can't wait to get it fixed and jumped from 11/12 psi to 15. :D

Wut? What's wrong with it? Not that this helps, but I find if you just nudge the car into a busy intersection, it an have the same effect as the a fore mentioned proverbial cliff.

On a related note:

I HAVE NEVER SEEN MY CAR SO RED!!! lol It's kind of exciting.....I can't shut up about it.

Did a full detail today to include wheel wells, door jams, engine bay, interior, One coat of Meguiar's Carnuba wax power buffed @ 3000 RPM w/ a Meguiar's 6 in. orbital buffer....had to step it up to 5000 RPM to get the haze out of my rear bumper and to remove some acid spots on the roof, one coat of Meguiar's quick detailer, wheels, tires, windows....it just looks so proud to be a Volvo sittin' there all shiny.

Mike and I are meeting up with Patrick and the other Mike shortly to grab a bite and shoot some of my point and shoot's finest. LOL

btw.......This was the first time I've ever used a power buffer and I think I'm in love. :lol:

With the stupid flash on making it look pink because I'm an idiot.....

Pizza grease will compromise your repair.
