I had the front end aligned which made a huge difference, the toe was out a bit. Then I installed a new set of pads and clips on the rear rotors. Changed oil in all my vehicles and found some issues,one of the serpentine belts was starting to break apart so I replaced that.I inspect everything when I open the hood or raise the car, preventative maintenance can save you big money and time.

I changed the oil, filter, ProCharger oil, and air filter today, then gave it a much needed wash since it rained here 5 days in a row. Also changed the oil on my wife's Saturn and did a headlight restore on it.

Car is in the shop I have a question to everyone ? Any one having a popping noise coming from the rear end when they go to accelerate from a dead stop or shifting gears if you have a manual at slower speeds? If so what fixed the problem?

Axle nut. Get a socket to fit it and a torque wrench and re torque it. Every car I have owned that had a axle nut has had to be torqued around 40k or sooner. The rougher you drive it the more often it will have to be re torqued. Truly it is no big deal. I have not had to do mine yet but here is a link to how it is done. Look at step 19 for proper torque amount and instruction.

Added these Roush rear valance aero foils to the rear. It adds just enough to be different.

Nice! I got estimates for my front and rear bumper repairs, and got my new tires ordered. The rears are already here...

Gave the Green Machine a nice bath with ADAM'S Waterless Wash in the garage, followed by a wipe down of ZAINO Z-8 detail spray last weekend. ZAINO Tire Shine on the tires as well. About 2 to 2 and a half hours time .
Killer combo. Was hoping to take her out this morning, but the roads are a little wet from the rains last night. Possibly early tomorrow then.

Passenger side rocker panel stripe has been crooked for about a year, and today I finally decided to strip it off and do it over. Now it's less crooked.

Also striped my trunk lid. For some reason, those curves were harder to work with than the hood. There's a few small wrinkles on the back, so I'll probably redo them eventually, but they're adequate for now.

Also put tribar ponies on the fenders. Those went on straight. Small victories!

I envy you and the time you are able to spend detailing her. The most I've done lately is Blackfire wipe down I've been so busy, it sucks.
