Hi Lance. Regarding RP, save your money. Unless you're racing your car, RP is overkill. You could run Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5w-30 and get excellent performance. I read the results of a relatively comprehensive test on engine oils. RP, Amsoil, and Pennzoil UP came in the top three. RP and Amsoil are expensive. Of these three, Amsoil and Pennzoil UP came into a top tie over RP. Amsoil edged over Pennzoil, but the difference was negligible. Save your money and use it for some other great mods for your ride! Same for the oil filter as well. The GM Professional Grade filters are excellent as is Wix.

Replaced both front hubs. Passenger front was stuck so bad it broke a puller. I slightly warped the end of the cv just breaking the splines loose from it with a sledge. Was supposed to change the transmission pan fluid and filter but ran out of daylight.

Installed Diode Dynamics SL1 LED headlights. Easily the best $150 I ever spent.

I HATED the stock (2015 Impala LT) lights... these are like getting new headlights. Massive improvement.

It sounds like I'm shilling, but I'm not. Just super happy with the improvement of night visibility.

Oil/filter, tire rotation and cabin filter swaps on the '12/'13 LT's. Also, topped off tire psi and donut spares for fall.

Installed Trans filter and new Doorman Trans pan. 6.5 quarts of DEXRON VI. Engine oil and filter while I was under it (3450 since last change, close enough)

Brakes, rotors and transmission drain and refill. Did that earlier in the summer and the fluid was dark.

Talking Quad light mod

Been working on a quad tail light mod for my 02 Impala.
Found several write ups but never found any videos of a build, so I decided to film mine.

They're not fully installed on the car yet, as I am awaiting new paint to be delivered due to failure on my last paint selection, but the videos available complete the tail panel rebuild and show a bench test.

Part One:

Part Two:

Part Three:

Part Four:

Hope it helps anyone who's considering doing the build. I was very intimidated by the over all project (as I suffer from severe doubt in myself at times lol.) but Im glad I gave it a shot and Im happy with the final product.
