Our new 1980 Bobcat Wagon
« on: September 20, 2015, 08:50:00 PM »
Played with the Bobcat today. Found the build sheet under the passenger seat, so that was pretty neat. Replaced the two front brake hoses, one was bad. Also flushed and replaced the brake fluid, turned the rotors and repacked the front bearings.  Now it stops nice and straight.

Also gave it a quick bath, vacuumed out the interior and wiped everything down with interior cleaner. Came out pretty good!  The passenger front black floor mat stained the carpet black. Maybe Santa will bring me new carpet for Christmas. Also ordered a Marti Report for it.

Thanks!  I can't wait to get it on the road and take it for a cruise.

Got my Marti Report delivered.  Pretty cool!  I wish I could get the Elite Report, I think this car would have some neat Personalized Stats.
