Just my "To Do" list...Don't mind me :)

I come across so many helpful DIYs on here and I can never remember where to find them once I save up the money to fix a certain thing on my car. Just making this post so that I can keep up with my progress on my car because there's a multitude of things that I want to do and it will be nice to have a single place to go to find the links I need, etc. I'm sure I'll be adding to the list and I'll post pics as I go along. I haven't posted any DIY stuff of the things that I've already done because this site covers them all quite well! I would love to call a shop and get a quote for all the completed things to see how much money I've ended up saving by using this amazing forum! It's a SLOW work in progress for me because I guess I gotta buy food and pay bills and do the dang adult thing before I get to play...but it's getting there!


Complete:

MAF - Bosch (11.22.2014)
O2 sensors (pre and post cat) - Bosch (12.2.2014)
Synthetic oil change (12.13.2014)
Ignition wires (12.16.2014)
Cleaned water drains (1.3.2015)
Transmission oil and filter change (1.7.2015)
Trunk struts (4.8.2015)
Cleaned throttle body (4.8.2015)
Alternator - Bosch (5.11.2015)
K40 Relay (new replacement 6.9.2015)
Fatmat installed (6.21.2015)
Rebuilt front hydraulic cylinder (6.27.2015)
2 rear tires (7.3.2015)
Starter - Bosch (7.23.2015)
Paint exhaust tip (8.30.2015)
Transmission wiring harness connector (9.8.2015)
Fixed leaking transmission pan (turned to be a loose drain plug )



To Do:

Strip and repaint interior
Replace shift bushing
Paint bumper
Halo headlights
Replace grill
Replace passenger seat leather
Replace headliner
Replace mirror and top switch unit in console
New glass for driver's mirror and rearview
Find vacuum leak

CD player
Find parasitic battery drain
Steering column squeak(?)

Because I'm a researchaholic, I read TONS of forum posts on here and other websites and gather tips before I start anything. I may use the majority of the instruction steps from one DIY, but then find another forum post (that's not in the DIY section) where I prefer how another person did a certain step that wasn't suggested in the DIY. I will seriously research something for days/weeks/months before I even attempt it. I'm weird and OCD. I can't help it, Banks
