    One juicy bug can make streaks for days.

    Anyway, glad there's no inspection here. If it will roll, you can drive it.

    Jersey used to be that shitty. They changed it up though, now they only really check emissions. If you don't blow dirty, you're out with a passing sticker.

    No inspection or emission testing here in Florida, with that being said - I see some real shitboxes on the roads every single day...

    If you don't have a windshield you aren't required to have wipers. I learned this from trying to get a woods buggy through inspection. Popped the lexan windshield out and it was passed.

    Different states, different laws.
    In PA for instance, without a windshield or wipers it's not street legal.

    Two oil changes in under an hour. New personal best. Feeling pretty good about that.

    Yes sir. Double checked, in fact. Filters too.

    And I checked to make sure the old gasket was removed from the oil filter threading. Made that mistake once, and my wife was stuck on the parkway with a severely overheated engine. :eek:

    Get a Fumoto valve for quick and less messy oil changes: http://www.fumotousa.com/

    They make them with nipples too so you can attach a drain hose. Went with a nipple on the one this time because it's just about guaranteed that any time I change oil it seems to be a windy day.

    So I don't need a tool to drain the oil, but I need this goofy bitch to remove the filter canister:

    That valve is badass.

    I dislike these new fangled oil filter setups. It seems like a fix for a nonexistent problem. I'm glad I am taking both cars to the dealer now like a fancy man.

    I wonder if I could get one of those valves for my zero-turn mower. I'm getting ready to do my first oil change on it, most likely this coming weekend.

    I have commercial vehicles they need to be inspected for every thing every year, and 95 and older don't get tested for emissions any more tempered to get a old junker that spews out blue smoke to piss off the libs.
