Got my head gasket done... but not beer + skittles
Well guys you might recall I posted about my EL not long ago... well finally got the head gasket looked at. The guy I took it to was recommended to me by my uncle (who was mech. years ago) as it was a friend of his mate's. Anyway the guy did a great job. Can't fault him on it. Only charged me $750 and got it done overnight. He showed me all of the probs - turns out a head bolt snapped and caused the head to loosen a little near cyl #6 allowing water to escape from the water gallery into the gasket and turn it to mush. Anyway guy replaced a heap of stuff and the car runs fantastic now. New gasket, set of bolts etc and its all good.
Problem is while my car was sitting in the parking lot outside the garage it seems some low life has flogged the centre caps off my cheap generic crappy 15" no-name mags. WTF?! Why bother?! Anyway, the fact that it was stolen isn't the worst part. The worst part is I can't find anyone who makes these wheels let alone sells the centre caps for them!!!! F**k I was pissed off. Now my car looks like crap and I'll probably have to buy a new set of wheels as well.
