    I washed the engine of the Golf and cleaned out all the shit in the interior and it turns out that the summer wheels I got with it are brand spanking new also the winter wheels that are on it are really good so they're not far from new either

    I finally trimmed my bumper to fit right and put it back on.



    I need some clear/black or amber corners... And some slips. Some blue slips.



    Yeah...

    Yesterday me and dad fiddled around with the golf and found out that the front brakes are almost new so they are great and don't need changing but the rear brakes were a mess with parts flying around inside so we changed the brake shoes and all the springs. There was also a quite big dent on the rear left part behind the rear wheel that I almost fixed, well it's as good as it's gonna get with only your hands anyway, so the left of the dent will probably be taken away with filler and painted over during the summer.

    Now I just need to bleed the brakes because the pedal is very low before anything happens but at least it actually brakes when you push the pedal and don't just make metal to metal scraping noises

    Worked on redoing the messy ass harness on this bitch today, redoing the grounds and whatnot because his alternator decided to not work but tested good.

    Harness redone (mostly) and re-taped, tucked a bit, and new terminals and he's good to go again.

    No after pics, it got dark on me fast.

    WOW I DIDN'T KNOW THAT. Yeah, it's been like that for two years now. I'd have to pull the manifold off and extract the broken stud -- My friend PROBABLY doesn't want to pay me to do this right now since he isn't working. It's fine without one.

    Also, fucking hnnnnnnnnnnnnngh

    first today I traded my XXR 521's off



    Then I jerked off to this minty fucking slips I got for them

    Then I had to wash them off :v

    So today i slaved over my car for a few hours, cleaned every crevice i could (don't think anyone wants me to link them over here, you can see the pics in the pics of your car thread). Never seen it looking this pretty before, considering the obvious. Also the seal inbetween the radiator cap mount and thermostat failed so i unbolted it and jerry rigged that shit with some thermostat gasket sealer, don't see why it won't hold but I'll keep an eye on it. Sprayed coolant all over my engine bay when it failed so everything looks like shit now, all white and whatnot, but i topped the coolant off and all seems good so far. Haven't really driven it yet except for around the block though so hey.

    Not a dirt road, just a very shitty out of town asphalt one. I left it that low when I lived with Japfeiffer/The Pfeiffenator, but when I moved back home it went back to stock height. He drove it for a while at stock height and then I got it back.

    I love that stance, but just can't do it right now.

    I pulled the rear bumper plastic off of my car to pop out the dent in it (you just couldn't do it with it on), and found out that the trunk refuses to close unless the bumper is dented with it. So i just got done putting everything back on, and pushed the dent back in at 8pm. I'm sick, and my car doesn't look any better (worse actually, the tail light got chipped somehow, and i had to super glue the corner that chipped back on). It was worth a shot, i'll have to buy a new bumper and trunk lid though.

    Jealous of the bumper on that Ramcharger, I hate the one mine has, like a solid metal beam. I really need to get cracking on buying a roll pan. Ive done quite a bit to my truck, I'll post some pictures tomorrow/later that I took a while back. When my dad changes the shocks in his truck he will give me his old ones so I will haves some mean 3500 cummins shocks.

    It's just the stock bumper. That's my dad's Ram Charger that he's had for fuckall years, the one I drove for 6 months before I owned my own streetable car after getting my license.

    It's a retired California Forest Patrol vehicle.

    So i fixed the leak inbetween the thermo mount and rad cap mount, but now the rad cap itself is leaking, and it's literally brand fucking new, not even a month old...So I'm thinking maybe I'll put the old one back on (It looked too big, which is why i replaced it and got the one that was "Meant" for my car, but now it's too small and coolant is leaking out the sides so..) and see what happens...Idk, it's just coolant but every little leak makes me sad and i feel like I've gotta fix it so. The engine isn't overheating, and the thermostat itself is brand new as well, bought it with the rad cap, not even a month old, so idk what else it could be really.

    Was just putting my shoes and socks on to go put the old radiator cap on the car before it got to late and remembered...










    I threw it away when i replaced it.

    Shitfuck.

    Edited:

    So, any ideas to make it stop leaking? Short of buying a new one since that obviously didn't work the first time.

    I installed an audio jack in my center console. I feel so proud of myself. I can now play my iPod properly in my 21 year old mercedes :) I'm installing USB ports in a week or two to supply power. Going to replace the fender in a bit as well. Need to replace the cigarette lighter. It is really loose.
