Parker the Parkway has successfully navigated the Rocky Mountains (Vail Pass twice), been to Utah, as far north as upstate New York, and is currently enjoying some R&R at my parent's house in Ohio....all with the OLD plastic turbo resonator! I swear, I feel as though we've dodged a bullet going over the Continental Divide, not once, but TWICE!
It's ridden with him for 8 weeks in the glove box, but all of the opportunities prior to today to have it replaced were squandered.
This morning, my brother (in Ohio) cleaned out his shop and my husband went over there to finally have it installed. Alas, there's some odd sized hex bolt that has to be unbolted first to get to the old resonator (don't know the details...that's all I was told via text). My brother, bless his heart, ordered a wrench set (he said he'll probably need that size one day anyhow, as he runs his own construction company and wrenches on things all the time), and he'll have it Tuesday. He'll do the repair, while my husband, who will have flown to Boise for a tournament, is out of town.
P.S. Our caulking job around the rear vent fan worked perfectly. Amidst a deluge in Cleveland this past week, Parker's interior stayed dry.
