No problem. I stayed up late and got that alternator bracket finished. I will be so glad to see that truck leave my driveway lol.

Awesome. I bet you're glad its out of there! It was blocking your hotrod truck in the driveway! :3gears:

Oh, send me a link to that tire/rim deal you told me about.... :up:

You asked about a router, I've got a Neatgear. I've not had any issues out of it.

A list of what they have: http://www.netgear.com/home/products/networking/wifi-routers/

The one I have is setup to run Gigabit internet (1,000Mbps).

Pretty sure it's this one: http://www.netgear.com/home/products/networking/wifi-routers/R8000.aspx

Good news @gammey4 is that nail in my rear tire did not puncture it. Mofo was just stuck in the tread. That explains why it never lost any pressure.

More god news is this. When I started the car at discount tire, I heard a huge exhaust leak. I figured it was the drivers side gasket since we didn't replace it and that was where the noise sounded like it was coming from.

Got it home, got under it and discovered we forgot to put the exhaust clamp on the BBK to Corsa catback! :lol:

Surprised it made it that long without coming apart!

So fixed that and changed the oil while I had it on ramps. :up:

Now on to tuning!

Is there a way to restore uniform color to light gray leather seats?

I used a Mothers liquid spray cleaner and conditioner on my rear seats and it has made them discolor in a weird way.

It's only the lower rear seats that discolored.

Any shops out there restore this type of damage?

Exactly why I like black leather interior. :meh:

so did you test in a small discreet area first? :) 

Yes.

So when I did the overall job, the rear seats last, it turned out different for one of them.

Only the bottom of the back seat did this.

more than I usually do. I just assume all will be well.

I had an uncle that worked for sprintz furniture. He told me years ago that soap and water are the best thing to clean leather with.

When the customer says "my speedometer doesn't work"....she means "my speedometer, tachometer, oil pressure, temperature, and volt gauges don't work.  And the oil isn't on the stick."

Some TN 660 cars

 

I wonder if that Z/28 is the kid I have seen around Brentwood.

It has a Monster drink sticker on the driver headlight or something like that.

 

Those M series cars are no joke, if they actually do work to them, they get stupid quick. My buddy who had the LSx 240sx back in CA was the shop foreman for Pacific BMW. He had a 135i they did a tune, intake, exhaust on, and it was mopping up coyote mustangs out in the valley, and it was damn comfortable too.

Stomach bug sucks!  That is all.

Crazy, but last night at work I felt sick at my stomach. I thought it was something I ate. Felt like I was going to barf, but never did. :meh:
