A co-worker stuck a trailer seal on my tow hook a couple of days ago . I didnt even notice till I came home. He said its been on there already for 4 days so I think I may keep it on there and see how long it takes for it to fall off.





Plans for tomorrow: Install braided stainless steel brake lines.

Ive attempted to install the brake lines before but with no luck. I also didnt have any patience anymore with taking the old lines off. The last time I rotated my tires I sprayed PB-Blaster on all of the fittings to let them "un-stick", so I think they may be easier to take off this time around.

I think putting the SS lines on is the easy part, the bleeding the system after sucks.
With another to help it isnt as bad though.

^ Bleeding my brakes has been a piece of cake. Ive got the Motive Brake Bleeder - the best tool Ive ever bought.

So the plan was to start the project this morning but we decided to hit the strip club last night to support the local college hotties. I didnt get up until around 10am and it was already too hot. I started gathering up everything I needed for tomorrow morning. Heres what I have:



PS, I still smell like stripper
