Wow. That sucks.

Sorry to hear. Glad she?s ok. This will be an integrity test for the dad for sure

It only took this life lesson once for me really, ?don?t borrow things?.

I borrowed a fly rod from a old boss. My brother in law snapped the tip off in the tailgate.   I had to buy a new Sage rod and than was in no position to buy my self a new rod because I really enjoyed fly fishing.   So now I don?t borrow things, if I justify its worth borrowing I might as well purchase my own.   

Mind you a few exceptions to this rule with a few select people.   And that list gets smaller every time I look at it.

Curious about how you guys have seen corners like this finished

We have the country modern style trim in most our homes.  3/4 overhang on outside edges for the header

I just dove them into each other.

Heck, that is perfect place for floor jacks and such!
A lot of times the home designer didn?t account for suv or larger sedan cars with the garage foot print so they can only get small compact cars in the garage. But with these braces they can at least nose the car under the porch if need be.

The fabricator is not positive on his price (buddy who hasn?t introduced himself here) my logic was sell it for more to increase his  bottom line and ours for a bit

Not a change order just an option for home owner to check off

Sending these out to be built, 2inch square tube, 3ft vertical X 3ft horizontal and a 45 attachment in the middle to eliminate the post to the garage floor.

Welder said $130 bucks a piece and we will sell them to our home owner for maybe 50% more.

My whole company drives fords, our excavation company uses all fords.  I drive the bosses (gas motor) and I swear the seat is hard as a rock.

I do like most of the features otherwise like the adjustable pedal height.  It makes good power, toss our trailers just fine, feels really stable while towing also. 

I like the factory ground clearance in the ford.  Where any GM truck I would purchase would need a six inch lift to get the new truck into the site, or a bunch of dirt to make a solid pad to drive over the curb and sidewalk.   

The ride really well for solid front axles, I might eat some humble pie and buy one one day.

The base of the seat was to hard.   It reminded me of sitting in the jump seat of the 2008+ Silverado.  The one that has the storage under the seat.

So the traverse still isn?t finished for and excuse after excuse so they gave a loaner car/truck. Chevy Colorado. Fifty min in the front seat and my butt was numb.  That is by far the worse seat I have ever sat in!!!

At this point in the traverses life. It?s still in really good condition inside and out, I figure this is a good deal for longevity of the vehicle I pair $10500 for it, 120k miles on the clock.  It should be good for a bit more with a little TLC

The next page in this car is a transmission.

The wife calls and tells me that it?s shifting weird as she gets headed home

Rpm increase at 2200rpm speed decreasing at same time.  4200 rpm and speed resume and hard shift in every gear with out being full throttle.

So make some calls do some tec search.  It needs a transmission.  No point in tearing into it.  Just replace as it?s known to be pure garbage

A few call get me a few prices. $3800 is my first, 2nd is $2800. For just the transmission

Labor carried from $800 to $1500 plus shop supplies n oil. 

Called my buddy at ol John Watson GM and he got me handled in less than all.  Trans out of Texas for $2700, labor $1100 and 100k mike warranty or five years on my transmission.   

It should be finished tomorrow

I have had rubber floor mat in front of my pump in the same location.  Worked well to keep mud and snow from building up on it.   It has since weathered and cracked off.  Gone.    I do have some patterns to follow to cut out of stainless that once I find time will cut out of what I have.

Odd thing about that story is.  ?I took my eyes off the road ?. For how long? Doing what?   Why follow someone so close.    This is the very reason I have a BAH on my truck at all times.   Most times people crash into you don?t have insurance than my premiums go up because I have to claim it on my insurance or the fix your vehicle with shotty work.   I?ll keep my B&M 8inch drop hitch thank you very much.
