Since we've been asking about folks activities with their crooked-H wearing rides, why not ask about their brethren?

As for me, today I put new front rotors and pads on the wife's Rio. Passenger side went pretty smoothly, but I had to buy an impact driver to get the screws out of the rotor on the driver's side. Might be the easiest parts of the car to work on. After I got done, took it for a test drive (stops FANTASTIC now) and bumped up the tire pressures. Really need to get a set of alloys for that car.

Changed the oil in the Rio this morning. Only managed to get a little on the garage floor taking off the old filter. Can't wait to get my own place and (hopefully) find some ramps that'll fit under the nose of both cars. Ought to make getting under a rain-sodden vehicle a little less of a chore.

Replaced the cabin air filter... old one was yucky!!! I went OEM for this one, as I couldn't remember the one I bought at the time... Turns out it was the Purolator Breathe Easy C45384. $40 and change out the door for some cleaner air! smile.gif Next time, I'll go back to the Purolator, since it can be had much cheaper with the AA discounts.

Have the paints bought, and should have the time on Saturday to at least paint either the wheels or the wheel covers. I plan to take off each wheel, thoroughly clean it, scuff it a little, and repaint them black. Then, as mentioned before, clean, scuff, and repaint each wheel cover with silver and then clearcoat. I'll document my process and take pictures, and make it into a DIY if it hasn't already been done, and if they turn out alright. wink.gif

In keeping with the "headlights are burning out everywhere" theme, I had to put a new bulb in the passenger side headlight on the wife's car. She managed to get stopped on her way home from her mom's last night.

Going to change the oil filter on the wife's ride. Yes, since it's so nice out, it's a "work on the cars" day. If I thought I'd have time, there'd be washing/claying/waxing going on as well, but I don't see it being in the cards.

My Forte SX got an oil change using 5w20 Pennzoil Platinum full synthetic and an OEM filter. Also had the tires rotated.
