I cried with my PT today. The fancy intake cover I made fell off. Started resonating (which didn't sound bad), but it threw a flashing MIL so I had to cover it back up and look for a better idea instead of plastic welder.

Added coolant letting the ceramic sealant dry overnight.

Drove the car an hour each way to NJ and back. The burning smell of anti-freeze is gone. Also, I noticed with the new thermostat and higher psi radiator cap (18psi instead of 16psi), the car is actually running cooler than usual.

At hwy speeds the temp was below the center line of the temp gauge. It never used to do that. When stopped in traffic it never got higher than the center line, as per usual.

After putting a custom steering wheel on my 05 Conv, I decided to do the same to my 02 Cruiser.



I kinda like having this type of steering wheel on my other rides as well.

like on my 61 Chrysler



And my 67 Charger



And my 40 Ford.

Are you swapping the same steering wheel from car to car, George? LOL You must be keeping Grant in business all by yourself!

Each an individual wheels except the one in the 67 Charger which was from the 40 Ford I sold.

Test-fitted a Chrysler Emblem on one of my snow tire wheel covers. Even a faded emblem doesn't look too bad on them. So, some day I might add emblems to those covers.
