    So I'm sticking with a regular cd player as long as my ipod can & sat radio can hook up I'm good.
    mine was ok,but i just wanted something regular,good luck with your build

    Put in a strut tower brace. Have a new turn signal lens sitting on the desk. Too hot to be jacking up the car and all that today. Guess it will wait for now.

    Started my radiator removal by spilling a bunch of coolant all over the place. I didn't have my pan in the right spot to catch it all. Tonight hopefully I will remove the radiator and replace it. It looks like she puked on herself lol. And I need to clean up all the spillage.

    Pulled the Strano springs off and put the stockers back on. Sold the Strano's and bought some Thermo-acoustic mat from Eastwoods and installed it from the back seat pans through the trunk area.

    Three weeks till it goes under the knife....

    Finished pulling the radiator out last night, wasn't too bad. I did learn how to do it better next time though. I also started my CTS-V brake swap and after mounting the caliper found out that I need spacers and longer studs. After those are in it should be done real soon!

    Today felt like a pretty productive day! I changed the oil and had to replace the drain plug because the previous owner rounded it off pretty good. Replaced the headlight motors thanks to 98TransAmWs-6! My car no longer has a lazy eye! And then finally I started wet sanding the driver side quarter panel!

    Glad you got them in! On a side note, after removing my radiator and realizing there was a different way to do it without removing the air condenser, I think I am going to remove my A/C. Is there guide anywhere for that? Also for the compressor part, is there a way to vent the freon safely as I can't just take it to a shop to have it vented atm. She isn't in drive able condition atm.

    You do not want to vent the refrigerant to the atmosphere, as it is illegal to do so. Plus, it can cause instant blindness if not handled properly. You need to have the refrigerant recovered from the system properly. It would be best to wait until the car is drivable again, then have a shop recover the refrigerant. You could then remove the componants.

    I know it is illegal, I was just curious if there was a way to remove it without venting it, then having a shop do that for me. Well since I removed the condenser, is there any reason to put that back on just to take it back off when I get the system properly vented? Also another question, when I do remove my A/C do I have to take the dash off to do so?
