    What have you done to your car today?

    me, nothing. but i know other people have. this isn't where you post up your whole project and your life story. just maybe what you did today. whether it be change your radio or your oil, or finally finish up a swap you've been working on. why not post it up and let everyone know your accomplishment

    hmm.. today i took out my stock headlights and polished them up.. it did nothing, they're still cloudy(not when they're wet tho, they look new)
    and i swapped out the engine temp gauge, recoloring my bulbs red along the way...

    Re: What have you done to your car today?

    I'm looking towards redoing all my interior lighting to LED bulbs this weekend. I also wanna look further into redoing my instrument cluster lights. Don't have a dremel so it might just be me replacing old bulbs with LED counterparts. I want cherry blossom red!

    Also looking to try to wire independent fogs this weekend as well, but even tho all the writeups sound real good, i'm still confused as hell.

    Did about 20 giant, hi speed donuts in a nearby parking lot. Between the new snow tires, Whiteline Control springs and the OB rear sway, this thing just loves being its own blizzard generator.

    This is a good thread idea. There was a thread like this on a Jeep forum I was on that was stickied. It was constantly being added to.

    So far for today- nothing. Drove to work.

    Re: What have you done to your car today?

    YO, ok so just looking at JDMLegacy's recent post on his/her Member's Ride section. I saw they just swapped out Bumper beams.

    When me and Shane swapped bumpers, i kept my whole bumper, but Shane said that the beam came from an outback or something, and i got that nasty looking gap.

    If i swap out JUST the GT beam from my old bumper, can i attach that to the fog light bracket plastic thing, basically, swap out the beam only after taking off my bumper and reinstalling it. Will it take much time? I want my rustbucket looking good from the front at least.

    Re: What have you done to your car today?

    Not my car, but I installed front and rear seats in JDMLegacy's car. Had a cup of green tea in the process. Discovered what looks like DEER hair under the old rear seat. Found 3 box cutters under the seats and some interesting looking snacks. Got the brake lights and horn working again.

    May have bought another set of wheels.

    Rerouted the keyless wiring system in my car so that I don't keep hitting the box with my clutch foot, regreased clutch mechanism, reset ECU for crappy winter gas and colder starting temps.
    Prayed car didn't need spark plug change and went looking for my lost torx set (no Momo for me today).
