did a wood working project in the garage Sunday. Pulled the cover off the bird, look at it, then covered it back up. One day this $hit weather here in Michigan will clear up and I will actually get her out.
Replaced the broken headlamp support cable on the driver side, no more headlight wobble. Didn't really wobble that bad without it, but it was enough to bother my OCD self. Tried looking for a premade replacement to no avail so ended up making my own with some braided 1/16" steel cable and some crimps. The factory one was riveted into the core support so I ran mine to an easy enough to access bolt in the core support to use as an anchoring point. Best of all it was like under $2 in materials, so woo.
OnA Fan, that looks a little more elaborate than just a brake upgrade.
Yes, plans changed rapidly once I saw how bad the original components were. I already had the tubular A-arms in storage. This seemed like the right time to do it right. Picking up some BMR lowering springs and Koni shock sometime this week.
Did a drive test with a friends very eloborate OBD II analyzer. I've had a consistant and re-ocurring "Service Engine" light with various codes. 2 interesting issues became apparent. My coolant temp gauge has issues. It stayed virtually locked on 209 - 210 indicated under all conditions. But the temp according to the analyzer ranged from 190 at a constant 70 mph to 228 while stuck in stop and go traffic. In regards to the SES light, the analyzer gave a "hint" to check the altenator. And, interestingly enough, I have recently noticed the alt. does not seem to respond like it should. So I feel that I might finally be on the right track with my SES.
