    Installed new front brake rotors, pads, and bearings. Also installed polyurethane sway bar bushings where it mounts to the frame. Now just to take it for a test drive!

    Got a replacement console front (shifter) panel installed. I had been having issues with getting it to sit down flat enough to be able to get under the HVAC fascia properly. Turns out one of the two unthreaded, welded studs on the back was missing (and the remaining one was crooked). So they didn't line-up with the holes the way they were supposed to. I also put in one of those DMOCO style stainless "quadrant top plates" that I bought from Henrik on the forum here. Gotta say, it came out looking pretty nice.

    I noticed how different the interior can look depending on the lighting and the camera flash. I know the stainless can have many different appearances depending on how the lighting is, but hadn't thought the interior was quite as susceptible. My pics go from looking like it's all one uniform and perfect shade of black to another where they all look horrendously different, even bordering on looking gray. Something to keep in mind I guess when considering buying a sight-unseen car and only going by the for sale pictures.

    Picked a fight with John Hervey on facebook.

    Also, reset my lambda counter, and went through my fuse box, cleaning, checking, and replacing things. Fixed the wiring on my blower motor.

    Up next:
    - Replace hose to brake master cylnder from reservoir
    - Replace blown headlight
    - Drive it!
    - Reinstall aftermarket stereo
    - Install hood latch
    - Reinstall remote starter
    - Drive it some more
    - Replace tires + alignment
    - Drive it some more
    - Oil change

Iíve used metal bands, those super thick zip ties, all manner of tools to pull and tighten them... one time I even coated the inner flange with RTV before tightening the ties to try and seal it - and every time, they come loose or rip and fling grease everywhere. Hate it. Nastiest, grossest job on the car and the least successful.
    I just noticed that the boot that is slipping off is clamped at 4.1 inches from the bolt surface and the one not slipping is 3.3 inches from the bolt surface. The shaft has a rolled stop where the small clamp goes so why is one side longer than the other? This is the new (vendor rebuilt) axle.

    The other axle (assume it OEM) that "roll" is 3.8 inches on each end.

    A case where longer may not be better.
