    oil/filter, tire rotation, spark plugs, coolant drain/fill.

    Passenger side was easy enough

    middle one was loose enough to get out by hand.




    And driver side is done, not the worst job ever but def tight. The right tools make all the difference.

    all three were tight

    they looked fine to me. Still gapped at spec. Probably woulda been fine for another 30k IMO.

    the 60k interval is nonsense since they are iridium plugs.

    get the socket tool I posted in the other thread. Along with some long extensions and a swivel you’ll be good to go, assuming you have some basic mechanic skillz

    I'm pretty sure btw my FiL and neighbor I'll be able to get that tool, but by the looks of it, if they don't, I've got to put on double to miles, going by the looks of yours (but who knows perhaps a quick pull of one to gap check at the next or following oil change)...basic skills at wrenching are present at times, at other times don't even think about it!:anonymous:

    New front brakes today: EBC “stage 5”

    shafts lubed

    DD SS3 Sport SAE fogs installed

    New Morimoto D2S headlight bulbs, cause the Philips weren’t rated for 55w ballasts and yellowed out over the years.

    And @FadedComa graced me with his presence, although still sick from the rona.
