jmanna's car is done. Or at least the new alternator is in place. About four hours to do it, serious pain in the ass. Had to take off the passenger side wheel and part of the wheel well to access it, and I've never seen such a miasma of mixed metric and standard nuts and bolts and unbelievably inaccessible connectors. One of the mounting bolts for the alternator needed both a deep well socket and a standard socket to get off, both for the same bolt.
And this is what I look like right now. Damn sexeh.
