Iíve barely seen a change. I still have to drive to work with the same amount of traffic as always and deal with the same stuff. Iím not in Miami right now, so thereís that. I donít have anything interesting to post either so Iím pulling a Daniel on this one. laugh.gif

Umm... we might get an inch of snow today?

The Miata needs new tires and I have a constant CEL from the auto ó> manual swap but other than that, nothing to report.

Uhhhhh...... I like green M&Mís.

Wiped, waxed, ready to fuel and load dogs/gf for a drive to walk the dogs away from humans. I mean that last part is kind of normal for us anyway, the less people we see when we're out the better so honestly except for the parts about death and economic collapse I don't mind this situation so much.

Still here. been home for about 3 weeks now. Did a ton of yard cleanup, car cleanup, put the smiley rear bumper on my 1st gen, sold off Freelica, ate some good food, cleaned up the parts basement and garage, BEAMS is back up on jack stands, 1st gens sitting outside frown.gif but now it can take the carport with one less car there. I have not talked to the outside world in a while and it's been nice. hehehe

take a bite of the butt - become a zombie/serial killer.

I can see the logic in that...

My clean car lasted all of 40 minutes, had to go through a gravel road and parking lot. Still looks good, even though it's gray now. The Dunlop Z3 tires do ride harder and make the suction cup noises even louder, but they grip and feel amazing. For sure an improvement over the Z2's I had. I think I'll get out Sunday and cruise up and down either side of the Kankakee River, cold and rainy today so that's no fun.

We got out and saw the Bison herd at Midewin and took the dogs on a nice long walk, got some pictures of the Bison from closer than they usually are to the fence. Jasper got to bark at them from the path a little and act tough, Molly kept getting insulted by the fence between her and the Bison. Pretty sure she wanted to chase them...We let them figure out how to get around a cattle grate we passed over twice. Molly did the same thing each time, Jasper did it differently each time. 10 years old and they're still learning!

Back to the car, I'm less impressed with how the Mothers CMX looks on the solid black of the Celica. It really makes the pearl metallic blue on the Mazda pop nicely but on the Celica it's just more gloss, but kind of expected since there's not really depth to that car. I'm going to try to get some time with her Escape to get it cleaned up for the summer and some protection on it, it's filthy from winter and needs a good buff down with a mild to medium cut to get the gloss back up.

I've been off the past couple of weeks, just now feeling back to normal.

Uhm, nothing new really thanks to stupid virus ruining everything. Never listed the car because of it.

You should list it. no better time. I listed Freelica and sold it in less than a week. Just be safe, I did wear a mask when talking with them n going for a test drive etc. then after the deal, I made sure to wash my hands and do a full body de-sanitize lol.

Mai hosed you down in the yard? laugh.gif Wait a de-sanitize would be getting you dirty not clean, you rolled around in the mud like a dog?

My mom's boyfriend (ugh still feels weird to say) works at a government nuclear facility and as such is super duper essential, no level of lock down gets him out of going to work, I told her to hose him down in the yard before he comes in the house. laugh.gif

Fall 2020? Late summer 2020? Spring 2021? There will be a meet and there will be meat. I'm off to go find some distilled water so I can top off my CPU cooler water loop, it's very low. If I can't find distilled water I'll use some of the premixed Toyota SLLC pink coolant in the garage.

Finally got the other new pair of tires the Mazda needed mounted and balanced. Did the extra fine balance because race car lol. For sure they needed up the sidewall on the new DWS tires, hope they still ride decent.
