hello? what's going on here?
looks like someone needs to get busy and mount up some tires...
soon. rim #4 is on the way, still being repaired. i might need to put some time into finishing them before they mount up, too. we'll see. one wheel has burnt clearcoat from straightening a ding.
btw weidman's wheels in Oroville rocks
ducatipaso, I love your mercedes !
I finally got my secondary fan back in the car !
i got an alignment
GOOD bout time ! ... HAHA I kid I kid...
Just about got everything back together on the rabbit then the landlord tells me i gotta get rid of a car or two so looks like the rabbit is gonna be for sale
Worked on the gf's golf today. Cleaned the maf and the intake tube. Checked all the fluids and tire pressure, wiped the interior down and vacuumed it. Noticed that on top of the speedo not working(already know this) that now the odometer and trip odometer are not working. Really need to find a working cluster she can afford soon.
Kill the pinstripe holmes!
Got the rear fog wired on the rocco. Took more shit apart on it as well. Working on the directional parking lights.. also, almost done with the frybrid instrument cluster. Should look like the car was designed with two fuel tanks and warning lights for the veggie system...
Fired up the rabbit today just in time to have to sell it
I cursed out all of my vehicles in the driveway today because they're all screaming for attention and its keeping me up at night!!
flushed out the power steering.... checked the transmission fluid... everything checked out O.K.
last day to work on the wifes car before she leaves for socal in the morning, I was just giving it a last drive and gas-ing it up and checking the tire pressure.
everything was working great and BAM I glance at the temp and it was well into the red !!! I was like F!
but this works out for the best, we knew the radiator was on it's way out and eventually we would've needed one but now its done, just need to burp it. and it gots new belts and idler pullies !
So her coolant system is all new all of it except the core .
Today, I almost ran my car out of gas. She wasn't too happy about it either. Maybe sometime this weekend I'll put the old wheels/new tires. both front tires are showing belt... I had an alignment done last week and the front toe was over half a degree negative.... yay for tires that lasted 3 months!
(I gave up caring about my car about a year ago. hopefully I'll be trading it in soon-ish)

I actually spent some time on my Mog today trying to free up some linkages.
I took 2 showers since and I still smell like PB Blaster and grease!
cleaned my car.. found a ton of road tar behind the wheels on the passenger side. I must have driven over some fresh tar in eastern Washington this last week. It'll take some time getting off.. claybar for sure, if not some polishing again
won 1st place in the 'late watercooled vw' class at this air cooled show in lynnwood today
I haven't because its not easy on the eyes.....hehe
I had 8 at one time and sold all of the running ones and left myself with a basketcase.
fair enough.. but it's not very often that anyone around here gets to see any unimog... you should post pics in the drivers & cars thread
I'm not pretty on the eyes either........haha
