  • Sat, 16:36: And I start the day off nearly killing Doobie by stepping on him. I opted to fall instead of crushing him. Dachshunds love to be underfoot
  • Sat, 18:12: I just paid $16 to avoid going to the DMV. Worth it.
  • Sat, 18:22: Car guys: For someone with very little mechanic XP, how hard is it to change a head gasket on a Chevy 5.7L V8 circa 1997?
  • Sat, 18:31: Anyway, someone around here is selling a 97 Yukon GT (rather rare) cheap & it needs a new head gasket. Thinking about it, trying it myself.
  • Sat, 18:39: I doubt I'd actually get that Yukon, just curious really. He wants $1800 for it, and the repair at a garage is like $1500.
  • Sat, 19:16: I'm also thinking about selling the S10 for $4k, or trading it for a nice convertible or manual hatchback.
  • Sat, 19:49: Here's a great response to the autonomous car problem RE: Tesla. https://t.co/249uj7ZYql
  • Sat, 19:50: Ppl want autonomous cars so they don't have to pay attention. That's exactly how they'll drive them, despite manufacturer warnings otherwise
  • Sat, 19:51: I'm all for autonomous cars, but expecting people to 'always pay attention' and 'take control' if needed isn't good enough, wishful thinking
  • Sat, 21:45: Please help. Missing Dog in PA. https://t.co/nq1yNyy214 via @imgur
  • Sun, 02:09: For you secondlife peeps, would you rather ears be individually colored or exact mirror images? Need to know for the UV map of a wolf head
  • Sun, 02:23: So far https://t.co/NNJsB0sQqo
  • Sun, 03:23: Threw a texture on it. It's based on a head I tried to make a while ago, so if it looks familiar it's from that. https://t.co/I49AvzLnqJ
  • Sun, 03:26: I was never able to find a good artist forum that either wasn't inactive or just too big. Thinking about just starting my own. Any interest?

Head gasket replacement is simple to do but a lot of work due to all the stuff you have to remove to get to it. Call it an 8 hour job for the DIYer with all the tools and materials needed.


That's an LS1, but same same for any Chevy really.

For avs, I prefer individual colorable/texturable ears.
