    Went to O'Reilly after school and bought Bosch super plus plugs, Oil, Oil filter, washer for my oil pan plug, some zip ties, and some seafoam fuel injector cleaner.

    Changed the oil and now the benz is a happy camper.



    The box scottx shipped me the skid plate in has been my creeper lately haha. Plug was leaking and it's all over the plate. I noticed the oil temp sensor was sticking out a little, pushed it in and it snapped right in, dunno how it came loose.



    Spark plugs should be here in like a week, had to special order them.

    Gonna put the Injector cleaner in sometime soon. Next fill up.

    Haha! Glad you got some use out of that box! So glad you have a good skid plate on there. You can't be running without one.

    Cleaned the garage up after 4 days of having the car torn apart in it, tools everywhere. Oil and crap on the floor. It was a huge mess. These are all of the tools I collected from the garage floor and the tool box I took to the JY with me. I got all of them back in the big toolbox and organized. I can't stand my garage being a mess. I'm also a neat freak when it comes to my tools.




    She lives! Runs great and all is back to normal.

    Today I cleaned the interior, exterior, and underneath. I gotta say I'm completely sold on clay bar. I was just going to do the few spots of over spray from the PO but I ended up clay baring the entire car. Needless to say I'm pretty beat haha. I've been scrubbing and polishing that thing for 5 hours but it's so damn shiny now. It's too bad the roads are wet and covered with a mud/salt mix, I'm not going to want to drive it for a few months now.
    Clay bar results:
    Before

    After

    That stuff is amazing. It took probably 20 minutes just to get all that off but it was worth it. I hated how it looked with that over spray. There was a bunch around the door handles too and now it's alllll gone.

    I changed the spark plugs in my friends X5, then washed the car and parked it in the heated parkade to dry over the next two days. Then I took the train down to see the Flames torch the Canadiens in this year's Heritage Classic. It was rather cold but a great time none the less.

    Clay bars are awesome. Glad it worked well for you.

    Very interesting art work!

    Met a man at a show we sell stuff at. He does this by hand and his attention to detail is amazing.

    His website: Thompson Fine Art

    He was working on this and I snapped a picture of it:

    finished my fluid flush extravaganza. put redline 75w90 in the diff (locks up really nicely now), put redline 15w50 in the engine and redline MTL in the getrag (it no longer fights me for first anymore and it was a pretty pink color lulz :)). i have a worldpac account and theyre a redline distributor so i get it at a DEEP discount and no tax. mmMMMmm...so nice. also changed the drag link and bled the brakes with ATE super blue, firm ass pedal with no burning off. im ready for the napa get together!!!!
