Changed the belts on my truck tonight

They were getting horribly bad and squeaked every time the truck idled (especially when I start it up, which I'm sure the neighbors loved in the morning).

I've never changed belts before. It wasn't too bad, but my hands got REALLY dirty, not to mention my face/the back of my head. A lot of grease and grime fell underneath the truck and I had to lay on my back underneath to get to a couple of bolts. My head was mushed in the stuff and it took forever to wash . Check it out:

The cool thing is that I saved about $130 in labor by doing it myself. Plus, by getting so dirty, I feel really manly after accomplishing such a thing.
