It has rained/snowed a couple of times since the roof top A/C repair and there is no sign of a leak since the repair.

I brought it home, quadrupling the mileage on the odometer from 16 to 67.

Technically, that was yesterday, but close enough.

Cut some 1/2" rubber mats to fit the front of the cargo area. Need one more piece.

Finally fitted my custom made one off tyre/tire rack today, John at Owlvans came through for me after finding out that my original rack wasn't compatible with my door due to not having the magnet stay with inner reinforcement, so he made a one-off for me.

I had to remove my self fitted Thule door lock, but that's ok, they are trash anyway.

The 2004 OEM headlights are quite fogged. They clean up and then fog again. Picked up a brand new Hella driver side headlamp assembly. 40 bucks new because it had a broken black plastic tab. That part wasn't needed for the Dodge anyway.

I marked the headlight aim on our garage door before changing out the unit. I figured I'd need to adjust. Powered up the headlamps. It was a bit off aim until the whirring position motor brought it right to where it belonged. I shoulda figured that the Germans would have everything tweaked in at the factory.

The new headlamp looks great. Now the other side looks even worse with the comparison to new.

I'll need to wait for another deal though. It's not worth the money to me at the regular price.

Today I modified Honda Odyssey leather armrest covers to fit my T1N

I also replaced my (I believe factory) radiator cap, the rubber gasket was horribly deformed

Changed shoes, took off the Falken Wildpeaks after say 10,000-12,000 miles, and put on the Conti Winter Contacts. The Conti's are Whisper Quiet in comparison to the Wildpeaks.

Installed VanCompass suspension on my 2013 144. Bilstiens struts and Fox rear shocks. Then took it in for an alignment. Amazing difference in ride.
