Default Changed ATF

Been wondering for a couple of weeks if changing ATF every 2 years (<3000 miles) really is necessary. The Castrol TRANSMAX Import came out dark red-black and kind of smelly. No metal shavings on the plug like last time though. 1-2 shifting smoother.

Next up diff fluid DIY (Castrol Axle Limited Slip 80W-90 Gear Oil) left in the bottle from 2 years ago (its a dark color; is that ok? or should it be gold). So I guess following the recommendations in the manual makes sense.

Default Battery tiedown finally

Happened to find a battery tiedown at the jy. Our jy seems to discard these when they pull the batteries. Who knows?

I wish they would sell you like a 3-hour pass to pull stuff off the jy car thats not even on their price lists. random fasteners, bolts etc.

Next up, door checker; that should be fun.

Security at the house AND you can keep a close eye on them. Plus when the weather decides it wants to act up you can quickly relocate them without having to go and retrieve them first.
