Re: sdaidoji's 'vics stories

memorial day holiday things to do:

broken rear bumper (someone hit it when it was parked)

P0420 solution - need do emissions now that the 3 month travel is done. O2 sensors will go at same time for safety

hello, kity, kityy, kitty, come here to your new home
i know you cats love a box, but time to come out, kitty!

Re: sdaidoji's 'vics stories

lost the battle with the rusted and weird bolts holding the cat to the catback... 4 days and no budge...

pepboys took two hours on the lift, air tools and finally took it off the car and replaced the cat. now need drive 100 miles for readiness codes for emissions.

i was never gonna get it out on stands and limited space (couldn't get the impact wrench there, shame on me.)

Re: sdaidoji's 'vics stories

Hip replacement surgery done 2 months ago, recovery underway.
Time to bring the civic back to life (was driving a CX-5 during recovery) - it's almost time for registration too...
let's see:
1 - new battery - it have been parked since July, or was it August?
2 - swap in the scrapyard rear bumper (If I can, not sure if healed enough yet)
3 - locate the oil leak and fix it
4 - swap in the HID headlights I got from Josh if time allows
5 - hope the new airbags don't blow in my face... (they swapped them during the time it was parked)

Re: sdaidoji's 'vics stories

Battery in, airbag did not blow in me face.
Shakedown:
- Had forgotten, but the seatbelt have the infamous failure... So SRS light on. (no issues in TN)
- Driver window was already weak to move, seem to have finally died...
- Scangauge is not getting mileage data... Wonder if just waiting for readiness or if ECU will give up soon...
- Left headlight is out - well, I need to swap in Josh's HID's, so...
time to hit a scrapyard? I have the hail marks in the hood anyway...

Separate notes:
Feels so much better to:
1 - Know where the wheels are exactly - hard to do on a SUV so high up the ground...
2 - Sooo great to shift again, clutch, shift, clutch!
3 - Preparing the 95 miata to get out of the bay... Darn hood hinges! battery is goner too, even with a battery tender...
