    LOL, that reminds me of the nursery rhyme by Andrew Dice Clay. I loved his versions of classic nursery rhymes.

            over the last 3-4 weeks I've installed a stubby antenna (just haven't hooked it up yet cuz nate's stubby has bad reception...so gotta figure that out before I got cutting my own wires. lol) and I bought an aspire exhaust manifold and drilled all three of the bolts out of it and bought some bolts and nuts to clamp for a good seal. I just need to install it. I also need to change that o-ring in the pressure fit hard coolant line. and I'd like to reinstall or replace the oil gasket...stupid leaks

            I also changed all 4 wheels on my dd festy

            this past week alone I installed an aspire rear beam and wheels on my gray shell which is now a roller. Then I removed the washer fluid res and front bumper and then installed aspire sway bar, LCA's, struts, tires, festy steering column, steering wheel, aspire seat (lol, only the back bolts so it bounces - pretty funny), aspire ebrake cable, festy ebrake handle and connected the ball joints and Outer TRE's to the struts.

            and I swapped one wheel on my yellow GL cuz it wasn't holding air.

            all of this to say that the city isn't collecting two "unoperable" festiva's because they were "sitting outside" and weren't inspected, etc. lame...

                      Washed & waxed 'Tiva. 3rd wax job after paint job. Paint shop said wax it 4 wks in a roe, to build up a nice wax surface. Then when water stops beadin'.
                      If it don't fit, use a bigger hammer!

                          Well today I went to fix all my problems in one day but that did not work. I have a thread explaining my oil leak situation somewhere on here. I had bought a cam seal, pcv valve, and oil pan gasket. I only got the pcv valve in. this seemed to have stop my "oil in the air box" issue. but i didn't do the cam seal because it would be better just to replace the crank seal and valve cover gasket at the same time. thank you festyboy for your advice today.

                          so tomorrow i am going to get the timing cover gasket, crank seal, and valve cover gasket and finish it all next weekend. If this doesn't fix it i know a certain 1.3L engine that will meet the scrap year for a little cash towards my motor swap
