Last night I:

- Started the Camaro for the first time in over a month. Running great aside from the exhaust leak. Need new gaskets at the header to y-pipe connections. Also put in the new embroidered "CAMARO" floor mats. They look great and were a long time coming.

- Cleaned out the last of the stuff I wanted to keep from the Jetta. Took apart the dash, removed the broken Pioneer head unit, put the dash back together. Disassembled the entire unit thinking that a CD had been stuck in there when it died. Surprise! It was empty. Lol. And into the trash it goes. Also put a new Chinese-made shift knob/boot on the car and kept the incorrect one I had spent the majority of my driving time using. Keeping it as a memento. Car will be towed to the scrap yard shortly although I should probably part it out instead. No time though.

- Put a new Gates supercharger belt on the Bonneville as the last one had slipped a little and run half-off the pulleys for at least a full day. I'll keep it as an emergency spare, but I wanted a fresh one on there. Also my reset button SUDDENLY works now. Must have been a temperature thing. I ordered a new button cluster from Haro and everything, but oh well. Now I have a spare one of those too. I wanted to change the fog light bulbs, but it was pouring rain and I didn't feel like getting soaked in my driveway. Hopefully I can swap those soon for the whiter bulbs I bought from RockAuto.

Deja Vu...Lol. I really need to start firing it up every two weeks at the most. I let it run for a while though and the idle sounded good by the time I turned it off.

- No more Jetta. Got towed away to a parts yard for a few dollar in my pocket. Didn't have the time and energy to deal with anything more than that in the middle of a frigid winter.

- Put the GXP strut tower brace on my SSEi Bonneville today. A little trial and error, and it seems to be clearing the Alternator well now. Honestly if it weren't for the Alternator issue, it would have been a 20 minute install. So easy!

put air in tire - rim leak and glued washer tube pieces together with dollar store contact cement - it stays pliable.

Hosed it down at the car wash. Can't wait to clean it up properly when the weather improves.
