28-MAR-2017 V1 installed (semi-permanent but removable).

Hard wired (I mean since there is the glove box outlet it is really just hide wired) my Valentine One or V1 using @MarcL 's guide: Valentine 1 RADAR install DIY. I'm very happy with it. Now there are no cables dangling in the cockpit and it's near impossible to notice from the outside looking in.



Work-In-Progress



I mean seriously, you can barely see it from in the car when it's off.



As a bonus I cleaned out my cabin air filter while I was in there.

Changed oil and air filter. The air filter wasn't that bad.

My Fiancée's car air filter was horrid though. Glad we spent the extra $10/ea She just hit 60k in her Impreza, I need to do the spark plugs next.

Between the two cars we still drained over 9.5 qts so the consumption isn't too bad especially considering they were both overdue.

Installed Blizzak LM-32 'performance winter' (sounds like an oxymoron) tires. I know it's a bit early but I got a nasty flat so I figured might as well. And hey it snowed here in October 2 years ago but hopefully I won't even have to drive this car in the snow this year if I finish my other project.. I also plan on getting 'real' wheels and tires in the Spring so I didn't want to go with all seasons that made my car undrivable in more than 1" of snow again.

I got a half moon on my front window. Saving gas mileage by drafting comes at a price. I assume a simple glass repair kit from an auto repair store should do the trick?

Photo to come in the edit because I just realized it's in with photos I transferred to my PC earlier this afternoon...

Changed the oil. Rotated the tires. I actually bought pads because the current ones looked low but after pulling the caliper off there was still like half the life in there. I'll save those for a rainy day..

24-FEB-2020 46XXXmi installed a new Antigravity (brand) super lightweight 9lb smart lithium-ion battery. (Yes forgot to make this entry) but now that I have been driving with it for 2 months I can say that it works great! It has a retarded amount of CCA so starts are near instant. It also will shut off if it gets drained down to the last amount needed to give you a try or two to start that you can re-arm with a button on the battery or even these handy remotes they give you. I have not yet needed to test that feature, however, even after the car sitting for more than a week. I haven't even played with the "free" swag they gave me, lol. It might be in my head but the car being some 20-30lbs lighter feels goood!

Wait...is that a regular sized case on a lightweight battery? I'm intrigued.

Yeah that was big seller for me was that it's in the standard Group 35 size instead of a motorcycle battery you need to fab up or buy a kit for.

Attempting to fix a nice razor gash in my winter tires.. I really should buy some summer tires/wheels since I'm starting to to drive again quite a bit. Of course if this is intentional that makes me not want to spend money on tires.. (car is garaged at home but lives outside at airports for days sometimes). Also I'm literally $3k away from paying my mortgage off completely. I like the idea of living debt free again for the first time in over a decade. Can't really use a standard tire plug so I'm attempting to use rubber cement... although maybe I should jam some tire plug in sideways...
