So far, I made myself proud by keeping out of trouble. I resisted the urge to race my friend. And as he was driving a Pontiac Grand Am, it was hard. I just knew if I got caught, I'd get my **** kicked, considering I don't even own the ranger (yet), and I'm just a JR in High school and whatnot.

Trans was delivered today, tried to do a plasti-dip checker board on the roof-FAIL! I think I'm going to get a bunch of cans and spray the whole truck. Keep it one color and not a two-tone of sonic blue and orange.

Refilled the windshield wiper fluid reservoir. While driving tried to clean the windshield and only managed to put more dirt on it. Had to stop and use a rag to clean it.

I finally drove the bastard.

Kicked the clutch.....while in first the other day. Pissed about a slow driver while trying to hurry to a hospital that is 1 1/2 hours away.

Poor tires. You will be replaced soon haha. Burned rubber all the way through 3rd gear.

Scheduled my appointment for tomorrow to get my windshield replaced, a rock hit it while doing 85 on the highway. Got an oil change at the dealership and they topped off all the fluids. Truck was very dirty, so I got it washed. Dealership told me my fuel filter needed to be replaced, so I installed the one that I bought from one of the guys on here. Also, I picked up some Rain-X to apply to my new windshield tomorrow.
