Looks good Ken. I drove into town to the flooring store to look at tile and carpet. I?m probably going to stroke a check and just get it over with.

That will leave me with cabinets, finish plumbing, and finishing the trim. Oh and a spiral staircase.

No. Using a bezel from a later model does not work. There are YouTube vids on guys that did it but they have to get the radio basket and modify the ac controls too.

Don. There is a company that retro fits the stock headunit to have Bluetooth and line outs for an amp. Keep it stick looking. The bezel you speak of is only made in black

Also if you ignore sage advice and do lift it. I need the crossmember and the little piece you have to saw off the crossmember mounting pocket please.

I think it looks good the way it sits Don.  I wouldnt lift it.  Free up the exhaust and maybe a supercharger,

Those interior parts are getting harder and harder to find.  The Graphite I have in the 2001 is super hard to find and I am always on the lookout for spares.  I would start keeping an eye out for parts that are going to wear eventually as they aren't made any more and NOS is almost non existent.

Mr Woody, it just kept costing me money on repairs and I finally said enough is enough.  In the last 3 years its been: oil cooler, both front air struts, glow plug controller, tranfer case, 7th injector, and now the DEF heater

Of course its probably fine now but I've just had enough.  If I can get 10K-11K for it I'll be happy.  Its an '09 with 125k on it.

I know I?m going to be happy. 7 year 100k bumper to bumper factory warranty. I don?t have to worry about anything but maintenance until 11/2025

Can?t decide if I?m going to put 100lbs of tannerite in the Benz and light it up or just sell it

I soooooo wanted to show up in the LB7 at the dealer with the trailer and load the new one up and drive off....

But alas she wanted to drive it home

Beautiful , Tate.

Dealer found the exact truck the wife wanted in less than an hour.  My contact called the President of the dealership and I had a no BS offer in less than 2 hours.  Deal is done.  Will pick it up tomorrow.

Then its going to be tough prying it out of her hands to take it to my guy for a clear bra and ceramic paint coating.....

well on to first world problems....

Wife finally made a decision on what SUV she wanted after what seems like 8 weeks of test driving.....

Now that she's made that decision, the rest is on me.  time to get the negotiating game face on.  I have a contact with the president of the dealership so we'll see if that helps....or hurts....

Of course she wants the most obscure options packages and .....she wants it by the weekend...after 8 weeks of stalling....

Well what the heck is it going to be that the wife picked out?   


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Well it was a Goldilocks ordeal. Her current SUV is 200 inches long and 78 inches wide. Everything was either 210 or 195 and for her it was too big or too small.

She narrowed it to the Lexus LX, Lexus GX, the Yukon Denali, Infinity QX80.

Bailed on the Denali because it was too wide and did t have the 360 camera. So she test drive the Escalade because it did but she didn?t like the gangsta image.

Then she eliminated the LX because it steered and drove like a truck.

She loves the quilted leather in the QX 80 but after the dealer let her drive one all day she couldn?t deal with parking it or getting it in the garage.

She decides on the GX but now that means she wants the top trim level which only about 2-3 on each dealers lot. Then she has to have the pearl white with the sepia interior which means about 1 on each dealer lot. And now she wants all that with the captains chairs.

None of those exist within Texas.

This is going to be fun....

Just put on a prime brisket. First time I separated the point and flat. We?ll see how the cook time is. Salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, cumin,

Smoke tube and 225 on the smoker.

Mop sauce is my vinegar sauce plus olive oil.

So today was a busy day. (Aren?t they all?)

Pulled the 4 half doors and trimmed1/16 off the edge so they fit better. Then ran to town for a grocery run and then to the pool store for a leaf bag for the Polaris, then to the truck accessory shop for the bed cover for the sissy truck. Then to the mill for more wood.

Then stained the 4 doors and then painted the upstairs on the casita.

Tomorrow will start cutting the window and door trim.

I know this will seem insensitive but this was just any other weekend in Chicago.  Why won't people address the deaths in Chicago?  Is it because black lives don't matter? Is it because it exposes the fallacy of gun control laws?

I'm concerned that because they are trying to link this to PTSD that any former military service person with PTSD will have their 2A rights stripped.

its easier for mental midgets to blame the object instead of blaming the actor.

Well after exacting my revenge for the colonoscopy yesterday by eating an omlet PLUS biscuit and fried chicken and then a burger and onion rings for desser, I ran some errands today.

Got the pool chems checked and bought some more acid.

Bought deer corn

Bought stain and varnish for my trim
Picked up said trim
Bought a lightweight concrete pad for the mini split
Dropped a package off at UPS
Bought a miter saw stand


This is what $150 in wood looks like.
