Ran my california car duster over it to remove the thick yellow layer of pollen. Will probably do it again when I get home from work.

Turned the GIAC X+ back on. Installed EIP's short shifter kit (front-to-back and side-to-side). And washed it.

--Chris

edit: cleaned and lubed the RSB bushings.

"What did you do to your car today?"

That would depend on whether 'today' is yesterday, today, or tomorrow.

Yesterday I let my 16 year old take his driving test in it. He passed, although I thought perhaps not, as he and the examiner were gone 20 minutes. Highlights: 1) when he started it up, the examiner said "Oh, it's a diesel" (as opposed to "your car is awfully loud, is making funny noises, etc."), and 2) coming out of the DMV parking lot at the start of the test my son said he accidentally spanked it, causing the examiner to reach over and grab the wheel so he wouldn't aim for the parked cars.

Today I had both cars tinted.

Tomorrow I have an alignment and a trans service scheduled.

Day after tomorrow -- well, that's a long way off, isn't it?

Let's see, yesterday, the day before really, Jeff (Rocketchip) gave it a custom tune. Today I dropped it off for an alignment with my new tires and newly re-rebuilt suspension. Tommorow, well Friday really, I will give it a good long Italian tune up on the way to Sacramento.

Next week or soon there after new nozzles.....
