What did you do to your MK6 today?

Cleaned the bay and noticed vibrations. Mounts are probably due being at 110k, which I'm assuming caused the hpfp flange to crack...I've been experiencing faulty start ups occasionally and randomly. I found a exhaust mani bolt in the belly protector under the car as well as smelling gas or fumes at times. I guess I gotta fix that and the hpfp asap.

What's with all the oil on the plugs??
I was changing the oil at the same time, using that cardboard to help catch any mess under the car, also my hands had some oil on them as I was handling the plugs.

10 years and 120k miles in and I finally installed a hatch pop kit. Also got all of the old LaminX off of the headlights and foglights in preparation for fresh ones that are on the way. Man, what a hassle removing the old adhesive. It took a lot of hours and a lot of Goo Gone.

Put some air in the tires before a small road trip this weekend. Sounds a little silly, but it had been a while. I had noticed the car didn't feel 100% with the big drop in temps recently, checked pressures and I was way too low :oops: 🙃

Yeah, I was off a tad more than that on all of them 💀 we're taking the missus' Tig for the holiday and we're definitely going to air her up first.

Finally washed her off, took an in process. That's 3 weekends of track grime. Sadly the Klii vinyl for the badge is permanently stained with the soot.

Late last week, I suddenly got a very frequent clunking in the rear. No warning at all. Sounded like endlinks, so I parked the car until I had time to look. Got under there yesterday and that's all it was -- pass. side endlink nut backed off ever so slightly. I love EZPZ fixes.

While I was in the mood, I also trimmed the firewall screw that tends to rub into the IE intake pipe near the elbow. I had to half uninstall the intake to get to the screw, so I had been putting it off.

I need to get in that mood. It’s eventually gonna wear a hole in mine if I don’t trim it. I can probably get some high leverage dikes and cut the tip off is what I’m thinking.

Ordered my tires. Went with the Hankook Ventus V12s as the place I was going through didn't have the Federal 595 RS-Pros I originally wanted. I'm not too concerned with tires this time around as I'm sure I will be the limiting factor, not the tires. My plan is to get them mounted on my wheels, then get the car on the ground quickly and get some corner weights so I can send out my suspension sooner rather than later. Gonna be a bit longer than I thought to start work on the car, cleaning up leaves takes a lot longer than I thought, and I gotta do an axle and brakes on my fiances car before I work on mine to make some room in there.

Goddammit another rattle in the suspension. Either a brand new swaybar link is bad or a strut is making noise.

I just want to enjoy my car for a while without having to crawl underneath it after every single drive.

Lower the lights. Light a candle. Put on some slow jams. Lay under your car and get in the mood. Crank on stuff. Twist things. Get dikes involved if you need to.

Just do it.

Okay so... my car ran great for two whole days aside from the new suspension clunk that I'm 75% sure is a swaybar end link.

Today a coil-pack shit itself. So that's cool.

I wonder what will be next... the alternator? Water pump?

Dream a bit bigger... timing chain, balance shaft, oil starvation
