Bought new rims and tires for the wife's ride. MB Wheels Sprites in 14x6 and a full set (this time) of Falken Sincera SN828 tires. Updated her garage, too.

Installed a new front engine mount. Took about 30 minutes once I had all the tools I needed and the car was in the air. Less than $50 shipped, thanks to RockAuto! thumbsup.gif

Changed the oil and filter in the wife's Rio. Finally got to use the creeper my mother-in-law got me for Christmas last year along with the ramps I just got for my birthday from my folks. Made it SO much easier to get under the car and get AT the $*%@# oil filter. Also discovered that, not only does O'Reilly recycle oil, they do filters as well. Just wish we could get them on the affiliate program.

Looking forward to many more uses of those wonderful gifts.

I added a layer of Klasse Sealant Glaze. I'll do another layer of that and top it with some carnauba wax. I'll post pics when I'm done.

Washed the Forte SX after a few months of neglect. Detailed some of the trim work and added a layer of Klasse AIO.

Still need to do the interior, engine bay and glass. Then I'll add a couple layers of Poorboy's EX sealant.

I installed my first visible mod:




Added a bike carrier because I got tired of breaking down the front/rear tires to stuff it in the trunk every time.

A couple weeks back I changed oil, trans fluid and trimmed the ram air intake. They have a lip that curves downward ~1/4" to close off the inlet. I merely trimmed it back to where the hood seal meets it so it still pulls in outside cooler air. No pics of that because it looks stock still....

I'm currently (okay, not right now but it's ongoing) elbow-deep in rear brakes/bearings on the Rio. Let me be frank here:

I FREAKIN' HATE DRUM BRAKES WITH THE FIERY PASSION OF A THOUSAND SUNS!!@#@$!@#~!11@ONE

It was typically hard to get the left drum off (that's as far as I am), and the c-clip holding the parking brake arm disintegrated trying to get it apart. Had to use a punch to get the arm out of the shoe. Ordered a new hardware kit and got new inner and outer bearings and grease seals for the inners. Will have to attack it again in the morning once the hardware comes in... just too tired and sore (unexplained knot in my neck/right shoulder).

Who has suggestions for extracting old/pressing in new bearing races? I'm thinking screwdriver/hammer to remove the old and socket/rag/mallet to install.

A big thanks to the local O'Reilly Auto for having a big gear puller to help with getting the passenger's side drum off. Got all the wheel bearings swapped out (races looked good, so I left those in) and new grease seals for the inners, plus new shoes and adjusters all around. So glad that's done... on to non-Kia/Hyundai fun stuff to fight with (yay, redoing switches in the bathroom!).

Recently, I've installed a new alternator and accessory belts. Tonight, the fun this car's been bringing me just spiked again: the exhaust broke at the flex pipe, and it turns out that whatever hangers the center pipe had busted too. So the whole system from aft of the flex pipe ended up dragging for a little ways as my wife was pulling out of the parking lot where she works. Ended up cutting the insulators on the muffler and the pipe just forward of the bend to get over the torsion beam. The coup de grace on that move was that the studs on the muffler flange broke as I tried to pull it through, but we needed the extra piece cut off so we could fit it into hourang's Suburban (thanks again, Jeff!).

Ordered new exhaust parts through Rock Auto (thanks for the discount code!) and hopefully they'll ship early this week. If I have to install it myself, I will... and save all the labor costs. But I'm hoping I can get a bit of a deal on labor and have someone put the car on a lift and install it.
