Since I am on a work trip, I can't wrench so I did the next best thing: order parts! Ordered a HP Tuners MPVI2 Pro unit (gonna learn to tune on a boosted car, scary). Still mulling over a T56 Magnum and S1 sequential shifter because I kinda like to eat.

Yesterday I had the 13yr old 59k mi sand pitted windshield replaced. Man what difference! Highly recommended. AAA said that getting an OEM would cost more than my coverage, and take much longer to get. So what did they bring? An original, identical FY (FUYAO) complete with molding. The guy said he only sees heavy, felt covered seals like that on luxury cars like Mercedes :-)

I didn't post, but a few weeks ago I had to have the ac condenser replaced. The leak was right where the dryer bracket bolts through and hangs on the front of the condenser. Don't know if that's a common problem.

Installed my Gforce Level 2 inner axle stubs today. Hardest part of the job was reinstalling the fully assembled cat back exhaust by myself. Old axle stubs came out with a quick hammer stroke on a wedged in between chisel. They are in excellent condition if anybody needs some spares.

installed a new clutch linkage on my tick performance master cylinder. the original was all wallowed out because it was made of aluminum. the new one is steel and feels like a brand new peddle. 0 play at the top

New key fob and gtog8ta black emblems. The new fob works much better than the old one with buttons. Before it wouldnt even unlock/lock the car with the key in my pocket, even sometimes out. New one works instantly.

Really like the emblems too.

Hooked up HpTuners and found out my car has a speed density tune. I think it could be dialed in though now that it has an xair intake. If anyone has opinions on widebands. Id prefer a gauge that has dual display

Friday swapped to a 102tb and a ls3 maf and retuned.
Saturday threw pedders drag springs and new drag bags on the rear with adjustable konis. Front got adjustable konis with custom valving that goes from about stock to roughly 90/10.

Finished installing the full set of DBA rotors and HAWKS pads I ordered from Kollar last Wednesday. What a difference!! Had an occasional moderate steering wheel shake under light braking. Removed pitted rotors that were at min thickness limit and actually found one set of caliper bolts loose. Probably the reason I had the shakes. These new brakes stop like somebody dropped anchor.

Moved it out of the garage so I could do some cleaning (listing our house). Saw my small puddle of coolant from the leak I need to fix next week... but also found a few drips of oil. Looks like it could be either the rear main seal or oil pan...one thing after another now!

I walked past it on my way to do some work on the 64 GTO. I did at least check that the trickle charger was working.

After cleaning up the GTO a few weeks back, I am trying to get the perfect paint on my black Tahoe. It just hasn't been right since I got it. Finally got out all the scratches and swirls with Chemical Guys VSS scratch remover and V36 final grade polish with buffer, then hand wax. This is flat black paint, no metallic, so it seems to show everything.

Dealership prepped it wrong and ruined the paint, no way was I letting them fix it, been trying to fix the paint for last year.

Finally it turned out pretty good. The reflection is amazing now.
