So yesterday Cory gets the hookup for an oem thermostat from the dealer. I get back to his house and I start tearing the car apart. Get the old thermostat out and throw it in some boiling water and it does nothing.
Change out the thermostat, refill coolant, and 3 hours of bleeding the air out of the system its finally good to go.
I was trying to use the webcam on my computer to record a typical late night work session at Cory's, but my computer shut off halfway through and to be honest, I just finished watching it and there is a lot of dead time that I don't feel like cutting out right now and the file is too large to post on here. Whatever. I do have a photo of my handy paintwork on the engine cover.
It's weird because the paint I used was fluorescent pink then I put clear on, but I must have done that too soon cause it turned the paint reddish and added all the white. I dig it though.
