What did you do to your vehicle today?

Like many people on RS, I'm getting the impression that the majority of members here don't even do the most basic mechanical jobs themselves anymore and have zero mechanical ability. I want to see who among us has grease covered hands, cut up knuckles and as much invested in tools as most people do on mods. Post what you did to your own or a friends vehicle today. Do not post what you paid someone to do to your vehicle.

Mechanics are welcome to post what they did to any vehicle.

If you did something interesting, post pictures too!
