It wasn't so much the speed, but the timing. There was nothing and then all of sudden right by my license plate (glint from it's eye) was a Racoon sprinting acrross the road, hit the brakes and BAM!!!! Too late little fella.Truth. Of course driving slowly when it’s a thaw and moon is bright ? Lessons learned. A long time ago a runaway horse jumped out of. Field onto the hood of my ‘64 Chev and walked away !!! It was in Quebec. Some 1896 law saying horse owners are responsible for their animals paid the repair lol
Also, the ecotanica plastic bucket is fantastic. I recommend.Today I did my first oil change on a Saab. It went perfectly to plan without any major problems - except for the oil filter. I think Eddie Hall handtightened it. It would NOT come loose, no matter what.
We took a screwdriver and hammered it through with a crowbar. The Jack I bought isnt very high, and we only had about 20cm of "swing" with the improv hammer. None the less, three hours later, we were able to turn the screwdriver and insert the new filter. I was a good guy and only tightened it a little this time. I'll keep the old filter as a souvenir

I love how americans love the clear, and us europeans love the orange. I guess its just having something different I need to replace mine as they're quiet foggy, torn between EU and NA parts. My car is silver so the clears are clean, but NA is very rare here.Hahah, that's quite the souvenir. Thanks for sharing!
This week I swapped my side indicators for clears and removed the badges on the trunk. Still working on the last bit of adhesive reside. It's putting up quite a fight.
