Hand washed the chassis. Second annual spring ritual.

Painted my slightly marred, but mega cheap junkyard SAP diffuser and reinstalled it.

Fresh catalytic converter nuts to replace the rusting 1.5 yr old nuts. I want the cat to come off easily when need be.

On my friends zx3, we painted his rusty drums and calipers black. We also determined that the stumble he had at idle is the brake booster vacuum line. Seems to be something with the barb that goes into the intake manifold. Not sure how we are going to fix it if the seal in the intake is bad.

Finally got pinion angle right, mudflaps installed to keep UHP happy, and tested to make sure it wouldn't rub anywhere.

And a carwash. Drives like a dream for some reason now. Even with load range E tires.

I drove both my vehicles today. Focus was moved away from behind my truck so I could go play in the mud!

Love both my fords. But I love the truck way more Haha.
