Washed, clay barred, and polished the GTO today. 96 degrees here today so I did it under a canopy. Tomorrow I’ll be installing the Monaro style side markers. (sourced from a 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer).

Installed the performance spark plug wires from ZZP (along with the coil packs and alternator voltage booster a week ago) and the car is running better than ever.

Of course the rear driver's window broke out of nowhere.

Win some, lose some.

I replaced four speakers in the GTO. Still need to change the ones in the deck but so far it’s a big difference. I also can’t believe how easy it was to take everything apart in the back.

I've done quite a bit this week in terms of car guy stuff. Cleaning house!

First, I finally loaded up and scrapped out the '05 GXP I stripped down. One scrap car gone!

Then, I stripped my '86 LeSabre shell and loaded it up with scrap:
Image
That was hard for me to do, but when the seats just pull out of the floor pan without needed to be un-bolted, well, yeah it's done.

Then, I ran out to pick this ol' gem back up:

Turns out, that subframe lasted just a few years after we sold it before it gave out, all four rear mounts the bolts broke free of the body. Car is a rust bucket underneath, and not worth saving. Going to be stripping it down this week and scrapping the body.

In other news, the '89 winter beater is officially up for sale. Going to pull the fat sway bars off it and replace a warped rotor, and fix the rusty frame creaky noise first though.

Good news and bad news today. Bad news, the water pump on the Volkswagen started leaking so I get to tear that apart over the next couple days and drive the GTO to work.

Good news, I got a package from down under!

What you did there, I see it...

So, yesterday, I R&R'd the rear brakes on the old van. Much like Matt's cars, this thing is a pile of rust. In the process of getting the rear rotor off, I ended up tearing out the spring anchors for the parking brake shoes. I was able to get one back in and secure. The other, no. I need to figure out how I'm gonna push the backing plate around that hole back into shape to that it will once again clip once turned in. For now, I needed to get it back up and going, so I could get to the 2nd job last night.

At the second job, just as I was finishing up, the alternator crapped the bed...
