@SE-RMonkey - yep, they broke while removing them, one after the other, I was going to remove the OEM one and put a Mishimoto "racing" t-stat that opens at 60 degrees b/c I have cooling issues from time to time. I found out for the VE motor you have to use a '00-01 Sentra SE or '00-02 G20 t-stat housing/waterneck, as I have a spare from my '99 SE-L parts car, but it wouldn't fit. So I just have to find one if I can't get the bolts out. Maybe I can pull the bolts out with that thingy

Checked out the sweet hail damage on my hood from yesterday's freaky hail storm. About 20 small ball-bearing / buck shot size pelts around my hood. Maybe a few on the roof, too. I did not look at it too much this morning. Made me cry on the inside, that is for sure.

Pops Frontier has pelts. Moms Saturn Sky has hail pelts on the front hood and trunk. My B13 took a small pelting on the hood.

Thanks, mutha-nature, mutha-fuckah.

Re-booted an axle. Welded up my own tranny saver bracket. Put in new axle seals. Finished replacing the belts. Bought some coolant and water wetter. What coolant does everyone run by the way? Searched for it but not very good results. Replaced leaky transmission switches. Changed sticker rod seal. Tomorrow is transmission reinstall day....Finally!

Installed new clutch disc. Replaced throw out bearing with clips. Put the transmission back in. Redid some coolant hoses. Connected all the intake. Installed one axle (passenger). Had a heck of a time with drivers side. The threads are all jacked up and the but won't go back on. I'm quite sure how to clean up the threads? Do they make die that big? I may just cut it off..... Oh well, overall not a bad day.
