Cool, you all drive safely tomorrow. The rain is supposed to stop before midnight over here and tomorrow the forecast says "plenty of sun".

I'm thinking a reservation for 1 o'clock for 10-15 people should be more than enough.
I tried to make reservations today but they apparently no longer take reservations :(

Re: Casper

Yes, my drums were getting close for some reason when I measured them. So I figured replacing them at the same time is a good idea. I am not sure quickly they wear. You would think slower than the pads. I hear you about the rotting. I even painted mine with caliper paint but that still did not last ...

Re: Casper

These pads look like there is not much left. When I replaced mine at around 190-200K, they still had a bit left. I was just getting tired of the squealing when it was wet. I replaced the drum as well at the same time as they were not that expensive. I have not double checked but I am pretty sure tha...

Re: Fall Dayton meet?

Given the bad weather we have as of late we probably should wait until it stabilizes a little. Any preferences in terms of which Saturday?

Re: thomas_w's log

Thanks David, the difference is even bigger in person than in the pictures. The automatic white balance my camera uses evens out the yellow a little in the old headlights. The fitment of these is actually pretty good, similar to the OEMs. And the light output is so much better without the haze.

Re: thomas_w's log

I was tired of polishing the headlights every other week and even then they were still yellow. So I decided to just get new ones instead. I also got new parking lights since those were yellowing as well and not sealed properly anymore. I tried to get replacements that were close to OEM so this is wh...

Yes, I saw it on the weather radar. But it is supposed to warm up this coming week and the rain is supposed to be only in the middle of the week.

Re: Oil light keeps coming on...

Some people say that the sheathing does not handle oil well and it may dissolve it to some extent. When my oil sensor was leaking on my 1gn, the wrapping wicked it all up so that there was oil everywhere on the wiring harness. I took it all apart and fixed the melted spots, which were probably also ...
