all good, they sent me a another one (not koyo, which I totally hoped for) and the car is up and running again. I'm just glad its over with, nothing I hate more than the feeling of coolant, dripping down your arms, and onto your arm pits =\

Happy new years to everyone, 2019 is gonna not suck!

Happy New Year Shinjari & Mike.
Happy new year dude!

We'll see about that haha

The moral of this story is never use amazon! :P

If there's one thing to learn from this thread it was the shared hatred of amazon by kenchan & I haha

Damn yeah I recall swapping the radiator on my EK Hatch and that was a cake walk. Ordered off fleabay or amazon I forget. Sucks you had to R&R it twice.

Life is good. On the research trail for the GF's next ride. I'm a numbers guy and we honestly need to get her in these cars and some seat time. Sure the car(s) may look nice in pics...but it can drive like shit or have horrendous blindspots etc.

So far Lexus has really caught her eye...like a IS or GS...or UX or NX lol. For me I like the IS exterior but hate the interior. I'm 'ok' with the GS exterior and love the interior lol. The UX is basically a CH-R with some more cargo room and less bubble shaped. BUT it gets similar MPG to her elantra and is basically the same size so that's a plus since she doesn't want a 'huge' car. That's her complaint about the GS is that its HUGE. Its barely 12" longer than her elantra. Anyways that's the hunt right now. Hopefully find something before spring.

I offered the civic and then I'd get me a AP1/AP2....we all know how that went LOL.

And go Chargers! Would be amazing to see Rivers goto the Super Bowl...but freaking Brady is in the way.

Thanks for the sweet project! She wants something 'new'. That'd be something I'd end up driving but I did end up sending it to buddy who was looking for a project car haha.

Talk about a joy-ride. check this article out.

Eh, those are small amounts of idiots.

The kids these days are pretty neat, they seem to be fighting for good for themselves & others. I'll always celebrate that.

In other news, I washed the Fit! Be gone salt!
