Silly girl left her camera here again, (insert evil laugh here, MooHooHaHaHa)
Today we will begin by making a signal lens cover for the right side, pics included.
but first maybe get some shuteye.
ooh while I'm thinking about it.
If you are experiencing a CEL due to the opening up of your exhaust, you can purchase a small part to fool your after cat O2 sensors from a company called "third strike performance"
they call this part a mechanical o2 sensor simulator.
I now own one for my daughters Jetta.
theirs is only $10
you could make it yourself for about $6
I'll tell anyone who's interested how.
in fact I'll goto Napa tomorrow and take pics of the stuff you need. Maybe not, Grandpa stuff.
Basically it is 2 antifoulers for 18mm spark plugs. (We used these in the olden days to keep oil from burning on the ends of your spark plugs)( if you think 18mm is big for a plug you shoulda seen some of the one off styles that were out there)
cut the end of one off
screw it into the other one
screw the assembly into your o2 sensor bung
screw your o2 sensor in.
gotta get some sleep now, boy'll be here in 6 hours, i just got home from 11 hour shift, wouldn't do to have an 8 year old beatin me up in the am. S.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.
