Brought my car with me to work tonight. Will be replacing passenger side window regulator and front license place cover. Old one is faded and starting to yellow. Time for a new crystal clear one

Took off the wheels, washed and foamed them. Foamed the wheel wells while they were off. Slight height adjustment on one corner. Went for a spin around the block with the Tech 2 plugged in, and checked for misfires, since I recently changed plugs and wires. All good in (under) the hood.

I just replaced the seat covers and new foam last month. What a difference! I don't sit as low as I used to but the comfort of the ride is great!

How tough is it to replace the foam? I have zero experience working with upholstry. Thanks for the help!

Was looking at a red top any reason you switched?

Went to replace my mufflers and found out I need to get it WAY UP IN THE AIR. I couldn't get it high enough because my front splitter hit the ground at 25". So I'll be waiting for another day when I can rent a lift. Maybe tomorrow or Monday I hope. So I gave it a drink of Chevron Premium and drove home.

Reinstalled my repaired EBCM module and replaced the stock door twiddlers with a pair of JL Audio C2 3-1/2" speakers.

Well the day the OP wrote this, I did nothing but let it sit in the garage. But I made up for it the last two days with a street tune on Friday and completely repainting all the brake calipers and brackets today.

I pulled mine out, sprayed it down, hand dried it, poured in a bottle of Seafoam...and it started raining so I pushed it in, waited my time, and smoked out the neighborhood Ya gotta love how the LS1 sounds at full throttle through catless longtubes.
