cruising with the windows and sunroof open makes everything better, I even do it through town on my way to work, and Richmond, IN has the unfortunate tendency to smell like dog food and or burning plastic.

^Truth.

Whenever there was a nice day, I would always drive my car aimlessly around town with the windows open.

Today on my Bimmer I.......

Flushed the coolant and got it all over me and the garage floor, put some radiator cleaner in the system and now have to drive with it in there for 3-6 hours before putting the new coolant in.

yesterday I went to put the side moldings back on the car (with fresh paint) and found the thickest layer of bondo I've ever seen covering all the clip holes on the back door. I guess I'll be using glue on that door, like the PO did...
ugh, even when trying to sell I keep finding irritating things
