    I remember how I felt, taking my car out of storage after 1.5 years. Can't imagine the torture of not driving your baby after 4 years!

    What a day....

    I got the car registered again and Iím working on the warranty for the paint that is peeling on the hood. I then went to Discount Tire to get my tires squared away and they snapped FOUR of the lug stud bolts. I then had to have the car towed to a shop and have a new wheel hub/bearing installed on the car. Discount Tire paid for the new hub/bearing and all new lug stud bolts ($641). The tires are now squared away and Iím good to go.

    I need a drink...

    I had both driver and passenger airbags replaced today at the dealership and somehow my brake line got caught under the axle on my driver rear. It wore through the brake line and now it needs replaced. They wanted $385 to replace the brake line.

    I had the car towed home for $45. My friend works for the towing company so he gave me a discount.

    I went to NAPA and got a new brake line ($26) and will be replacing it next Tuesday after I get back from the lake.




    I also ordered a new Brake Backing Plate because my parking brake retaining pins have pulled through the backing plate due to rust. The dealership price matched FCPEuro and sold it to me for $48.13. That will be here Tuesday and I will replace it. They wanted around $500 to replace that part.




    Then the car will be off to the body shop to have the front end re-painted as itís peeling down to the primer on the hood. The body shop is covering the paint under their lifetime warranty since I had a new hood installed and painted back in June of 2011.

    I will also be ordering new exhaust brackets as my car seemingly hasnít had the one from the trans since Iíve owned the car.






    I can see the end in sight!

    That bracket is pretty cheap from them too. Waaaaaay cheaper then buying from the stealership.....the dealer cost is around $50 then they mark it up.

    FYI the brake rotor backing plates can't be installed without removing the hub in the rear.

    Ehhhh technically you can do it. You just have to cut a bit of it out that you donít realistically need and then just slide it on.

    If you cut the red lines you can then slide it on and bolt it in. Shouldnít loose any structural properties.
