Mermaid with an Aztek


« on: October 01, 2017, 10:29:48 PM »

Hello,

Picked up this Steel Blue GT for next to nothing today. 1 of just 4638 Steel Blue Metallic Azteks made in 2001. One owner Texas car. Has a sunroof, HUD, DIC, Dual Zone, cloth interior, leveling suspension, tow package, traction control and the RDS CD cassette stereo with 10 speakers. 121,000 miles.






Hopefully soon I will get the hood painted and get it detailed so I can get pics with my friend's 1 of 473 2003 Rally. Laird was the hit of the local car show this past month.



It will be fun for hauling my mermaid tails though I couldn't find a green Aztek to match them, blue will do just fine.

I am sure I will have questions coming!

Welcome, and congratulations! That is one fully loaded Aztek. Looks to be in good shape.

What's this about mermaid tails?!

Thank you none. I'm a mermaid! Smiley

Made Crystal Blue Persuasion (that name may or may not stick) her first modification last night! Added an auto-dimming rear view mirror with homelink and light.

Impressive! I have yet to start modifying my Aztek. Glad to know something like this can be done.

I like the nickname... goes well with the mermaid thing, and is also a nod to the Aztek's connection to Breaking Bad.

Woohoo! I just got a lead on a set of original factory accessory seat covers in a local junkyard on an AWD 2001. These guys are kind of jerks but I hope I can pour on the charm and they let me back in the yard to get them and see if it has any other goodies.  Grin

Yay, I get the fun of replacing the underhood fuse box this weekend. Power to the fuel pump fuse but it's not going to the relay like it should. Fortunately, it's an easy job.

I was about to type "I'd rather do that than tackle the thermostat"... but I do not wish to bring bad luck on myself  Grin

KNOCK ON WOOD

JINX

I just finished replacing my thermostat & now I never want another project (other than upgrades). Everything has been easy on this car until that stupid thermostat project. Even the rear bank of spark plugs were cake in comparison.

I was looking under the hood and yes, the t-stat looks to be a major pain!

I finally took her on the road today, still need to get the blessing from the state to use public roads that I paid for (but that's a rant for another time).
