Have a couple friends with the 3.5TT ford. Runs good and good mileage. Even tows great but the mileage dies when towing, really dies. One of them cracked an exhaust manifold in AZ on his first trip.

With the room done, been working on the garage again. Can almost walk around it again.

Bought another roller cabinet for the mill. Got another Husky that is 24" deep. Other 24s were over 1k and this was just $350. Original was to narrow at 32" and this is 46". 36-42 would have been perfect.

Any victims with all the trip to the farm?

I like that. You should see the fan upstairs when I was painting with the airless!

See if I can find a washable filter?

I kinda like the look of the Colorado. Was it small or just not right?

Tough luck, but a good warranty.

I lost my 700 in Eugene, just 2700 OTD. But not FWD.

Yes, cash talks and saves you $$$$.

Even stores like it as cash can be pushed through and CC/debit have a trail.

Got the split comp. hooked up, not a lot of space and sitting on the roof.

Thought the AC line was dedicated, but it also goes to master bath and shed. Adding the comp and upstairs bath is way to much for that circuit.

I will run the line over from the head unit which I know is a dedicated #12 line right from the panel.

I would simply form a plate that goes between the 2 tank mounts. If yours mounts like mine you have a bar across the front and a strap in the rear. Couple bolts in the front, zip ties in the rear and a piece of plastic plastic sheet.

I have the skid for my tank and it would not accommodate that sump well.

Looks good under there. Covered with diesel is better than gas!!!

Is there a way to protect that pickup line or run it on the inside. It just looks exposed there asking for something to happen.

My lift and filter are in the same spot. I added a piece of tin there for protection. I could just the you know from the tires doing something to it.

Maybe just add a resonator vs a new muffler. Muffler would change the tone, but not the wrap like a ford has. A resonator might mellow the poping sound.

Spent all last night with mom at the ER. Was crazy busy, finally got in bed at 0400 and slept until 10. Was nothing to worry about but now everything seems like an issue.
 
Heading out now to pass out cards and get a script for here. BBQ for mom tonight and now she doesn't eat red meat I am told???????? Guess I'll leave her in Ca when find a nice place.

Put shelves up in the daughters new room and listened to everyone argue about moving stuff. The Seagrams will get a dent tonight!

Isn't it crazy that something costs .50 to make cost $20 with fancy packaging?

I know what you mean though. Having swelling issues now and wearing a compression sock on the left. My circulation is terrible in my feet.

I wondered about the tracks being one piece and what would happen.

Guess it is paying for itself well and gets a thumbs up?

Thx guys. Yes, glad to be done and I guess the bed makes it official!!

Getting the mattress out was an adventure in itself. 6in memory foam in a 10in sleeve.

Dave, I was going to post something earlier, but let it go.  :wink:

Why do we drive these trucks? Why do I want 30+ round magazines? A flame thrower, you betcha!!!!

Looks really good Jr
One question though.  Why didn?t you use flooring to cover the bench?


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Thought about it, but the stained wood has a richer look and a nice sheen. Plus I still had to make a top for it and the flooring edge would had required a lip to blend it.

Thanks guys, hvac time and non to soon. Early spring and we are seeing mid 90s already.

The darn primer peeled right off the bullnose. No biggie as I had to trim and sand a little so it will need priming again.

Painters putty sure makes you look good, just don't look close!

Well, got the cover painted and mounted. Sanded the cover down with 320 and gave it a few coats of poly. The HF gun did the job great with no thining.

Repainted the ceiling with a roller trying to hide the imperfections. Not perfect but it will do.

Cleaned up the baseboards and putty'd them up. Just need a little trim paint now.

All that is left is the baseboard painting and the HVAC hookup. (wiring and lines)

This is about as close to being done as you can get, she moves up this weekend  :beercheers:

Valid point Tommy. Just like maint, what kind of miles?

I like the 200k mark myself unless something comes up.

My 87 Elky did have a HUGE nest on top. I pulled off a wad once with all kinds of switches and delays and rerouted a hose or 2. It has run fine since then and passed smog every time.

Oh, the LBZ does have the dash light issue and 3 glow plugs have been replaced. I change oil at 5k now but use the best filters and a bypass I change every other.

We slung trusses today from 2:00 to 8:00pm.   I had to leave for a physics class at 5:30 so the team finished it up.   

One of the ugliest set of trusses and roof lines I have ever seen.    It will look fantastic finished but getting it to that point is going to be a long week!! 
Pictures tomorrow. Bed time for now

God help you Sean. The 2 biggest hurdles, when they walk and when they drive!

Grandma just gave her 2001 Camry to me for the oldest, who is 15.5 now. I dread the insurance but the car was the right price with only 159k on it.

I don't think the day of manufacture has anything to do with it anymore. It is all cnc and robots except for some odd fitting now, like plastics.

My 87 el camino has probably 500k on it, doesn't burn a drop of oil but it is tired. Has gone through 2 trannys (200r4), but other than the window molding it is sound. It has a mild cam in it with an intake are all the mods. I did put a BGN rear in it thats help the go a little.

I think 200k is about right on the money for about anything made now. But I would do way more maint than is listed.

My LBZ has been sound, but a few hubs and upper ball joints I attribute to craking it up a little. Thermos and a little leak by the CP3 rail was about the worst for it otherwise. Now at 150k and it urns great, hope it does for another 150k.
