      All are fine except the driver door. Im thinking I need to replace something. I tried a little bit of white lithium grease, worked for a bit. Now its stiff again.

        So, tonight, I decided to do some work to the car. Just stupid little shit that's been bugging me for a while. I started with my broken glovebox. Worked yesterday. Went to open it and no dice. Latch is broken. Fuck. Break the latch and replace the glovebox and zip tie it shut. On to changing my OBC to the one from my parts car to see if I could get accurate values for mpg, etc. Nope. Apparently, I get 4.5mpg. Fuck again. After getting discouraged there, I decide to try to fix my bumper that's been sagging. Turns out the shock only had bolt that was tightened. The little stud fuckers broke loose from the frame rail I guess and couldnt get them back on the frame rail so I could tighten my bumper shock. Spent an hour fucking with it and finally got one stud/bolt on and said "fuck it" and decided to put the bumper on. Couldn't get one of the bolts on so I said "fuck it" again and screwed the tow hook in and went home. This was at 11 pm.

        I am so fucking sick and tired of fixing little shit on this car. So fucking irritating.

        Time to wake up at 6 am and do it all over again. Night night.

        Time to sell it to a kid on Craigslist. :p

              Used that in the middle of the snow last week and the cylinders went from being stiffer than hell to being able to turn with one finger. It's a de-icer and lubricant (I would presume graphite based as it sat right next to the graphite lubricant at O'Reilly)

                      So how soon are those "car of the month" articles coming? They have been saying that on the R3V home page for years I think.

                          I snapped my only key clean in half. Luckily I know a damn good locksmith. Clean the locks maybe?

                            My locks were stiff too.

                            Sorry about the pic reference, but I couldn't really find a good one of the collar.

                              Here's a tip: with the doors locked, pull up twice on the door handle. This will turn on the lock warmer, melts any ice very quickly.


                              *If you are awesome like me and have the optional lock warmer*
