Totally forgot to mention this earlier, but I got 2SSRS' rearview camera coming. It's at the post office currently, but can't pick it up until Monday. Pretty busy Monday with lab work and what not, but I will try to install it on Tuesday. I know I know, I say that I'm installing something and then 3 weeks later it gets installed. Not this time though, I really want that damn camera for when I have to parallel park.

If stolen, then USPS/UPS would say it's been delivered, therefore it must be stolen.

Twice....in two years they store has been open, USPS has left a package with a neighbor and the neighbor forgot that the package was with them...and boy did people complain to us. Tracking is great...insurance... If tracking shows it's never been delivered, there ya go. If so, the person dropping it has to answer for where it went.

Wouldn't say it was delivered if the delivery person is the thief.

That would seem more likely if the last update was, "Out for Delivery".

True....but.

If it was put on the truck "out for delivery," then tracking would have caught that. that means that the package was in his/her possession. If he didn't deliver it, then he would be responsible for it if it didn't come back to the shipping facility that night (which would also be recorded).

Could be worse. Could be 3 MONTHS later.

Got the new part so that I could go back to the stock gas door. I'm not 100% sure how to swap out the part, but Ofer explained it to me pretty well. Once it's nicer out I'll install it.



Guess what else came Pedders rear cradle and radius rod bushes. I'm hoping to have them installed the weekend of the 4th. But need to talk to Back Street to make sure that day works with them.

If I was around, I'd be happy to help you. Pretty easy install all around.

EDIT: HOLD UP. Those are straight up replacements for the cradle bushes, right? Not inserts, but the entire bush?

Thanks, but that'd be a pretty far commute. Yes they are complete replacements.

I decided to take some time today to work on Kaylee, nothing major just an hour and a half or so. When I originally installed the Anvil Auto carbon fiber spoiler I jury rigged it. I didn't have any of the OEM spoiler nuts so I just went to Home Depot and got some nuts and washers that sorta/kinda fit. Well the nuts fit, but the washers were WAY to big. Anywho, Ofer was kind enough to send me some OEM spoiler nuts along with my rearview camera. Thank you much Ofer. So I reinstalled the Anvil Auto spoiler.

Few things I noticed though. First off, the bolts on the spoiler are too long by about 10mm, maybe 15mm.



What that means is that the little plastic caps don't really fit. So I thought I'd be clever and use a metal nail file to shave down the bolt.



Didn't work. I would have been going at it for 30 minutes to see any real difference. So I gave up and just made the plastic cap fit.






I've got more stuff to talk about, but I like separating things into different posts so I can keep stuffs organized.
