Noticed a small puddle of clear kinda thick fluid under my car, what I am guessing to be brake fluid. Guess I better get under their soon and figure it out.

Got an oil/filter change almost 200 miles overdue.. oops. also, did the tail light mod where the top part becomes the running light and the middle circle ugly becomes just a turn signal. thinking about putting orange/amber bulbs in the reverse sockets and wiring those in as turn signals since my reverse switch is long since gone. aimed my headlights too, again. then upon leaving my trusty neighborhood brick wall, my car began to act funny. died as soon as the clutch went in. started right back up and died again. did it again except I was able to get it moving and got to 2nd. stopped to turn into the street and she died again. got it started one last time to get home, and idling in my driveway then she ran okay, still sounds funky. no idea what the problem is, did this once this winter, too, but that was when it was 50 below

Found 2 noticeable rock chips on the hood and a vertical thin scratch about 6 inches long on the fuel door.

Took a while to notice my wheels were as dirty as they were and definetly lost it's glossy look but now all better;before that I gave the car a simple spraydown to remove the winter grime before a proper handjob by the weekend.





Also tidied things up in the garage so the Focus has some more room.

Looks good ron.

Glad to see you are getting a engine under warranty bud.

I'm dropping the mazda off at the body shop tomorrow so let's hope that goes well and they do a good job.

On a side note these finally came in.
