exactly right, I would rather replace the pads than pads and rotors on the next brake change also!

Age is taking it toll on my poor old truck. The little rubber nub that keeps the fuel door from rattling broke off while I was cleaning the inside of the fuel filler area. Life it rough.

You can actually MAKE another one by picking up a black rubber plug at the hardware store and carving a new one.

Okay, that was kind of a joke. Won't really work. But you know what the broken rubber nub means, right?

Another excuse to drop by the wrecking yard. And I'll bet if you find any hardbody, THAT part will still be on the truck. Who takes a rubber nub home from the yard? Light bulbs, instrument bulbs, relays, maybe. Little nub, probably not. Go get it.

What I did on my D21 today: Geez. This truck really has no issues at all right now. It's weird. I keep WAITING lol. Nothing. So I changed the oil and the first quart back in was a bottle of Lucas.

Lucas, not Clapton, is god.

On another teal note, got oil changed in the green iguana earlier using that Altrom filter. Let's see how it does.

the bedding method i have used for ages is lightly dragging the brake in ten second intervals while going about 45 for about a mile and a half. then i do a couple of hard (not locking them down) slowdowns from freeway speed. then i drive it around for 5 minutes or so to cool them down and i call it a day.

I've never gotten these complicated bedding techniques. You just drive out and go normally. Then recheck after a day's drive. I'm more worried about my wheel being on tight enough.
