Default What did you do to your C5 today?

I thought this would be a good place for us to post what we are doing to our C5's which can help share ideas/pictures of your daily project(s).

Ill start - today I replaced my directional bulb, after buying my first jack...Im very proud of myself cause I've never been a DIY guy...

Im now going to be getting her ready for the upcoming Car Shows in my local area!!

I'm paying the price for having the dealership replace my oil pressure sensor.
After I got the car back it started intermittently going into limp mode.
I tracked the problem to a messed up connection at the throttle position sensor.
Now I'm looking for a rubber connector for the air bridge that was destroyed during the sensor replacement.
Guess who's doing the replacement the next time?

I'm finally getting around to installing all the cool stuff I bought over the winter.
K&N intake went on a few days ago, last night I started installing radio flyer headlights then I will get to the B&B exhaust.

I actually put the temp cover on it to keep the dust to a minimum because my show season is OVER.... I am going to change my new to me mufflers Saturday morning though........That's why the temp cover. After that it will get the regular cover for a few months.

Yesterday I installed the c6 shifter. It replaced a B&M Ripper which I didn't care for too much. Can't wait to have it out this weekend... if it doesn't rain.

Today hopefully I'll have time to add the steering wheel emblem I got for it. Waiting for other misc parts to arrive too.
