finished oil pressure sender that pissed me off dearly a few days back and made a pigtail for the wire to reconnect the sensor properly... instead of being routed to the negative terminal on the battery

Preppin' the old civic to get ready for sale. F*in hate sellin' cars!!! Gonna head down to parts store a little later to find the smallest bulb I've ever seen to replace the old one in the most inconvenient spot I've ever worked with to try and get the a/c display in the GTI back up and running.

VRT that hood is lookin' mighty nice man and the bumper just sweetens the pot. Guess I'll be breakin' into that shortly.

took the car cover off and stared at the engine for about an hour trying to figure out where to put my power steering resivouir and thinkin how imma hide some of the vac lines and some coolant lines. other than that started her up probably for the last time in a long while let her run for about 30 min to get it up to operating temp. then shut her down and removed the intake manifold and the valve cover to begin polishing them.

Yeah just whatever ya did, it's nice to get the respect and props you deserve even if it's the little things we do to keep our cars in tip shape. Hell if you can't get here where can you get it. Not sure driving to school is a big thing, but more power to ya.:cool:

Nice!!!! When the money comes in I'm doin' up a separate motor, still learnin' the ins and outs of euro motors.

I'm a DJ I work weekends make more money than most do in 2 weeks and have nothin' but time with my new ride.

moved to the exterior for a change and gave the car a good wash, adjusted the stance on the suspension and re-fitted the bumpers correctly. Anybody live in the Atlanta area and know where I can find parts, I need a new hood and bumpers bad.
