Default What have you done to your PC today?

I noticed a similar thread in the Motoring Forum and searched and did not find one here. I thought that this may be a good spot to post things that you have done to your PC today that you don't think are worthy of posting a thread for, but would still like to share With the Community

So post away

Using them for my drainage valves.

Riveted the new midplate i made up into my TJ07, riveted the new backing plate i made up to the motherboard tray, measured up the front drive bay for a new alloy one piece that my bro is gonna guillotine and bend for me on monday. Stripped some powdercoat off, decided it was too hard and that im just gonna pay to get it stripped.

Got quotes for spray job of case (outer) Black with blue pearl.

Tossing up weather to buy noise deading now or later

Bought some automotive putty to fix a fuck-up in the backplate
