Default What did you do to your car today?

Just about every automotive forum that I am a member of has a "what did you do to your car/truck/suv" thread, but we don't, so I thought I would get one started.

I went to my local Pick and Pull and found myself a factory Nissan Shift knob for $12, and picked up 5 feet of 0 Gauge stereo wiring for free. I also adjusted the E-Brake lever on my 240 so it works properly again.

Your turn!
Simplify, then add lightness

Well I did this yesterday but I picked up a 9" K&N filter and some ABS pipe to make an intake for my car. I will finally be able to hear some blower whine

I order my final rim hub a few days ago, came in the mail today, i cleaned it and polished it.
Placed it on the rim, all wheels looking sharp. I'm happy in the end.

I started my truck open header just to find the damn thing idles quiet enough to talk over.
Tired Iron ain't got no time to wear out...

My rigs:

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!
