  Busy day today. My day off so I decided to do a little preventive maintenance. What started out as a simple drum brake check turned into a whole day of doing stuff. Front pad slap, rear brake shoes and ebrake cable replaced. Cleaned and blacked out the wheel wells. Painted the kidney cuts on the mags red to match the car. Modified the rear wheel lip mouldings to fit. Then put it all back together. Relax with a cold beer. Now that was a good day.

Yup. I managed to make the last couple years since I'm working in SoFlo right now.  If your looking for ANYTHING for ANYTHING, chances are you'll find it there, or find someone who has it.Big smile
