Today, I did nothing to my car. But yesterday, I put in a new cabin filter. The day before that, I cleaned my ICV and polished my intake.

Got the head back from the machine shop, 60.00 to make it all nice and flat again. Then ordered a head gasket kit, head bolts, oil filters and some plugs.

FenderBender, did you get the car running?

Not today, but I painted the surrounds black and left the inner grill bar part the way it was, less black, I guess. I like it that way.
