    I found cutting a plastic seltzer bottle (quart) in half (lengthwise) and cramming it under the oil filter makes for a much cleaner oil change. Directing the oil forward into the drain pan/vessel seems to capture most of the oil from the filter.

    You sure a rodent or cat didn't try to climb it's way up your decklid? Something did that to my Colorado and scratched up the paint pretty good as it did a slip & slide. I would've popped it's neck while emitting sick laughter if I could have gotten a hold of it. I don't think the fuckin' thing had 2,500 miles on it..

    No, I think these are morons putting crap on the trunk lid type scratches. Not heavy things as the scratches are mostly very minor.

    I still wouldn't rule out cat or squirrel, those things are on the move this time of year. Just yesterday while working on my truck one had the balls to try and stash a crab apple in my rear bumper. Makes me wonder if it's been putting shit in my spare tire cavity. After that I noticed fine scratches on my tail gate. Not that I care, just an observation..

    I put the winter wheels and tires on earlier this week. Appointment is setup for Monday to get Krown treatment done. Covid slowed down my plans to start on the Yukon this spring, so it looks like that will be getting done next year. The Scab just is not a suitable winter DD candidate. So it looks like I'll be introducing this car to (I assume) its first winter. This car has a rebuilt title, so that helps me not feel too bad about it taking on winter.

    Some pics with the winter wheels and tires:

    Wheels look great with that top. If you'd like to get that Yukon in for winter service, I'll give you some keys to the garage. Just because I can't help with it doesn't meant you can't work on it if you'd like. I'd hate to be the reason why it's not on the road.
