Doing Write-ups

I like that people are more proactive about helping out your fellow members with modding, problems, and tech information. I'm trying my best to help answer question and share experience I have (which isn't a great amount) but it may help. It's a lot better than this site was about 6-7 months ago. Just wanted to say thanks and good jobs guys who are being active to answer questions. Again, I'll try my best to help out.

maybe you should do it on the ground though seeing as most people who do it them selves don't have a lift. Then use the lift to take pics from under the car. assuming you have a lift in the shop

Will do, I can do a polishing one soon. I have something small to polish that won't take too long.

I'm just saying it'll help as far as jacking the car up and setting the jack stands. If you do that remember to include how to reset the oil life indicator
