And Here We Thought We Were Finished...

Today I had to take KARR to Ipswich, South Dakota for work, and got hailed on twice! It was marble sized hail, but did not do any damage that I can see. Still, not cool!

The end links came in for KARR this afternoon and since we are taking him to Sioux City, Iowa for a Boston concert tomorrow, I did not want to mess with installing them myself. I took KARR over to Troy's shop so he could install them and give him a once over before we take him on a long road trip. Or so I thought...in addition to the end links and sway bar bushings, the front upper control arm bushings and the upper ball joints are all pretty much shot. There is a ton of play in the wheels.

To say I was disappointed would be a huge understatement. We were really looking forward to taking KARR on the road. :(

I have ordered all the necessary parts, and while I am at it I am replacing the lower ball joints, lower control arm bushings and the spring pads, too. I am going with polyurethane parts, so they will last, and also help to stiffen up the front end. Since I was blowing money like the Aberdeen wind lately, I decided to also order some chrome valve stem caps with the Fiero logo, a Fiero "We Drive Excitement" t-shirt, and a fender gripper mat that has the Fiero logo on it.

I did get some good news today though...my new shift knob from Matt arrived!


So how was your day?
