    I'm already out, WTF? unless you're talking to Brad Pitt...

    anyway, it was a productive day today:

    - still waiting for the gauge pod from SUMMIT
    - flushed the brake fluid, that thing was nasty. It looked like it had algae in the reservoir... no kidding. Looks a lot better now, however the brakes don't feel that different... still hard to do heel and toe since the brake pedal goes in farther than I'm used to, might have to do something about that later...
    - changed the tranny fluid with Redline MT-90 and half a quart of syncro mesh, that does feel much better.
    - we were unable to remove the filler bolt for the diff, Marc will help me get it out in a couple of weeks so I can replace that fluid with Redline 75-90.
    - the fluid for the cllutch looks like chocolate milk... WTF? need to flush that out soon.
    - finally got my registration done on Friday, the geniuses at Park didn't know Cuyahoga requires e-check so I had to take care of that.
    - Metra kit arrived today but have to pick it up at the lease office next time they open, and the speakers should arrive next week so I'll be upgrading my stereo soon.
    - belts will also arrive next week, not looking forward to that but it's a little overdue.
    -still need to install the HIDs and replace the fog lights since one of them is out.

    stock bleeders had some gunk on them


    this is the fluid that was purged from the system, sucked out the rest with a pump


    looks a lot better after everything was done, Willwood 570 FTW


    chocolate milk... NOT COOL!

    Aren't blown headgaskets fun?

    That's not too bad though. I wish I had pictures of Christy's 2.9L Bronco II that I replaced the head gaskets on. Shit looked like a jar of Hellmans exploded in the valve cover.

    tried to install the boost gauge today and no luck, had to buy another tee cuz I broke the one that came with it, broke that one too so Evan had to use his lady hands. After making sure there were no leaks and the wiring was OK, the gauge didn't move... it seems to be bad as it reads -20 when the car is off or it's disconnected. Waiting to hear back from the supplier to exchange it...
