Saw this on another forum. I like the idea, so here it is - a place to share what did you do to your car today. If you wish, of course Very Happy

I checked tire pressure on all three of them and inflated, were needed. Checked liquids levels, too.
Washed 92' Si.
Cleaned mats on 03' Si.
Should I mention the lawn tractor? Just used it to collect some leaves Wink

Well, soaking that bloody stuff in WD-40 for years and in penetrating oil for days did not help, so I decided to take a saw and cut it. So, I replaced the fuel filter on my 92 Si finally today Very Happy
I replaced air filters on 92 and 03, too. But I managed to break breather connector on 03... Oops Crying or Very sad

- Engine ground wire on 92'
- Hatch glass struts' nuts on 92'
- Headlight bulb on 03'

Removed the blower yesterday. Disassembled it and soaked the half in the soap water.
Tried to wash and rinse it, now it's drying... Don't feel any smell, though Smile

Installed the blower after fixing some damage to the foam. Works fine and no smell Very Happy
Received hubcaps for 92' that I bought a few days ago. They are used, but in much better shape than mine are.

Did not post here for a while Sad

OK, so I keep pumpering my 92. I bought used CD changer and corresponding head unit for it. I received CD changer already, and I'm waiting for the header unit to arrive before starting to install the things. Air horn stopped working, it turns out to be the blown relay, so I just need to find my way to the parts store to get the new one and install it then...
