It's been raining here over the weekend and forecast calls for more rain during the week. This was taken in front of the house this past Friday, just before the rain started. Looks like I'll be washing/cleaning D1 next weekend..

Saw him in Baytown for Fest5. Although he was too damn busy making sure things were running smooth. Barely talked to the guy for a few minutes and that was it!!

Back from my Road Trip to the Dallas area for my nephew's high school graduation. On the return home, car would not start! I had to replace the original battery, finally. Almost made it to 5 years (not bad!) My brother took me to a nearby AutoZone and I got a Duralast Gold Battery.

Almost 90k in miles and a battery replacement only? Ah the power of Chevrolet~

I replaced my battery for the first time 2 weeks ago just for the hell of it.
Like you said, it was getting close to 5 years too

Nice proactive move on your part. I had been reading up on some of the things folks have been going through with dead batteries here and it decided to hit me yesterday morning, just as I was loading up my things to drive back to San Antonio.

Went to open the trunk and nothing happened. Put the key fob in the ignition and car would not turn over. Couldn't get the key fob out after that and my sequential tail lights were going nuts, blinking in "show mode"!! LOL

My brother tried to give me a jump, but the car would only "slightly" try to turn over. That's when we decided to head over to AutoZone to get a new battery. Glad all was well after that and was able to make the drive home.

Not much updates going on over here. I saw Transformers:Age of Extinction on Opening Day. Other than that, I've just been keeping the ride nice & clean. Hope everyone had a good Fourth of July!

Finally had the JDP control module taken off today. It will need to be shipped back to them for repair. Man, it sucks not having my "light show" since the Autorama back in mid-March!! I guess I'll have to wait until it's fixed.
