Nice job!!
Personally, I would have added the wandering around the parts store looking at various worthless doo-dads and waxes and stuff for about two hours, too, but that's just me....

Jiffy/Quickie/whatever Lube never does all the lubing/maintenance they SHOULD, the few times I've taken my Bronco to the quick lube they've always missed at LEAST 2 u-joints and a couple ball joints, but other than that I find your story very factual
