Installed my tranny color and put some gold pinstripes on it, and some gold lettering on the tailgate.  Oh and put some LED's in the center console.

"Felt" a grinding this am when I drove to work.   So when I got home, I re-tightened all the body lift bolts (none were loose) as well as retorqued all the lug nuts (again, none were loose).  We'll see what it feels like tomorrow.  Couldn't tell what corner it was coming from and I didn't hear it grinding - just sort of felt it through the steering wheel.  Thinking it might be time for brakes (27K miles since brake job).

I finally pulled off my front bowtie and put about 8 coats of semi gloss black on it...I want a punisher skull in the middle but I havent found a good template yet. Then I finally got my Hella Black Magic lights mounted on my prerunner bar and most of the wiring run so I can button it up tom. I got my MAF cleaned out, put on my Goodyear Gatorback belts, then the best mod of the day was rounding off the bolt on my tranny plug while trying to change my ATF. Oh yeah and Amber DRLs.
More to do tom so off to bed.

Here are the lights in the center console.  They light up the cubby and the "black hole" cup holders.

And here is my switch panel.  There are four toggles for front and rear emergency lights, the center console lights, and my backup camera, and a two way rocker for my Hella combo fog and driving lights.  You can also see the mp3 input I added.

Feed her 2 quarts of motor oil, I'm sure within a week the change engine oil warning will be on.

How many miles on her? I'm at 93K and burn no oil. Switched to synthetic at 65K.

It's the nature of the 8.1 they all do. It loses 2 quarts of oil about every 3,000 miles I never see any blue smoke it's been happening since I had it and I have 122,000 miles. As long as it does not go past 2 quarts I'm not going to worry about it.

Every forum I'm been on everyone says the save thing, so suck it up.

I have a friend in Texas who bought the new style Camero 6 cylinder and he noticed it used oil as well right from the start.

Sat around hoping it would get warm so I could do some paintwork on the grill. Then ordered some more LEDs from superbright LEDs.
