Lip looks decent, but I'm pretty sure those rims belong to a cavalier I see putting around town here..

While Sacramento may have it's downfalls, the weather is awesome. It's about 70ish here and perfect outside. I love the heat so it works for me.

Can't wait for the 100 degree days

What kind of coolant flush involves getting soaking wet?

Make sure the car is running too, this way you know you got all the coolant out!

Il put it this way. The coolant never lands in the pan, and always on the person. Laying on ground to get block drain plug out + dripping coolant = wet.

I have never gotten wet at all flushing the coolant.

But I have managed to miss my bucket completely and dump coolant all over my garage floor.... twice
