I'm tired of crushing my fiberglass bumper when I'm layed out. When done it will lay on 1/4" plate steel.

I just had to repair the bummer again. I like to cruise layed out. Caught a manhole cover..

Steel plate looks huge till the bumper is on it.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

WE do not have to worry about manholes being high here !!! Just low here as even after they tear out an old road and pave it it is always low and rarely ever smooth with the pavement !!!! BTW....The steel plate looks good Ray !!!

I figure all your sports cars have the lips under their front bumpers. obviously they don't do anything. this is so if I smack it off the ground worst thing is going to happen is I'm going to throw Sparks. I like Sparks...

Re-replaced the control arms. Hopefully I'm done with all that.
Plugged the passenger airbag back in, forgot it when I had the dash off before, and the dash light is still on. Gotta look into that next.

Currently doing an oil change. Not super exciting but it's the first I've done in my own garage. Milestones!

Installed a backup camera. This one from amazon: LeeKooLuu Wireless Backup Camera and 4.3'' Monitor System for Cars/SUVs/UTVs/Minivans IP69 Waterproof 6 LED Light Night Vision HD Color Rear/Front View Camera with Guide Lines On/Off. Works ok!

What will I do to the xb in the coming weeks?

The xB is in GA for a pit stop. Considering the low HP I cannot state the 'Eagle has Landed'; but rather the 'Pigeon has Perched'.

What did you do to your xb today??-ga.jpg

A few things to take care of including repainting the rear spoiler.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

I have always hated that when my xb is layed out that the rear always sat up 1 1/2" higher than the front. I have tried toyota sienna shocks because they were shorter than the xb shocks, tried slammer shocks too. Same result. I am bottomed out on the rear airbag and shock.

Well I fixed it...
