How is your car doing?

POR-15 for the rust:
Paint match from a place on Laperiere. I can get the name if you want; I know it to see it but don't remember it off hand. I'll go get my list of shit to fix on the cars and make you jealous. :)

atleast you do a wicked job ... mine are allways half ass .... how is that theatre room coming along in the basement?

got the first coat of mud all done, but determined that I want to drywall the ceiling instead of drop ceiling in the 'landing area' at the bottom of the stair, which means redoing some electrical and putting on strapping, etc. :/

the e34 went well, except for the one section I was worried about.. the front door. I couldn't really get to apply the POR to both side or even one side well, and it bubbled again. I think I'm going to drill a hole in the back of the door at the front and coat that mother in oil.

For all you nerds out there:

I use the free version to keep "to do" lists and project manage everything I have on the go. Very handy. That way I don't settle in to fix the car and find I forgot to get the parts, or neglect that one thing that I always put off, etc.

chromius 01-13-2008 03:15 AM

Holy crap Jay...those are some serious lists!:eek:

Myself, this winter the power steering pump grenaded on me, and the driveshaft took a shit. Upcoming for the summer:
Valley pan gasket
Valve cover gaskets
Front lip install
Water pump, Rad, hoses (preventative)

I think that's about it, then it should be perfect until something else breaks.*shiner*

everlast 01-13-2008 03:17 AM

You should see all the items I've marked as complete!

Only need a new windshield now to get back to where I was before winter. Also need some new side molding clips, reaim my headlights by taking them apart, and of course, fix my leaking AC condenser round 2. Probably should order the Nylog now.
