Nice catch Ryan,  You must have a really big monitor....you always catch detail.  It is cat6 for a ubiquity AP.  The closet to the right is the nerve center for the entire property.  100mb connection, video matrix switcher, HDMI baluns, all the , NVR, Satellite-DVR, DVD, network server, stereo, etc.  It will then be piped to the main house and the seacan.  Will be installing all Ubiquity POE camera's and access points

Thanks Ken,  The stain turned out darker, much darker than what it was supposed to be but can't change it now. downstairs will have an arch top with a keystone over the windows and doors.

Standby JR, pics of the floor coming.  It the upstairs its a Shaw carpet frisee with memory foam pad.  Downstairs will be tile with a reclaimed wood look.

Oh and check/replace the heater hose connections at the firewall.  They are a plastic QD type and they break and fail and will leave you stranded.  You can run standard hose clamps and be fail proof.

Don't remember red spark plugs but years ago when I had a little hot rod I ran Exxon Super Unleaded in when the timing was retarded for street use, it had a red dye and it turned the intake runners in the manifold and heads turn red.....

I'd keep the t stat at stock temp.  Too many computer controlled devices dependent upon coolant temp to chance a change in t stat temp.

Now can we get back to Dottin'?

Little update.

Went to spiral stair place and got quote. Reasonable at $1800

This is for a locally sourced one piece welded stairs with balcony railing. Painted black.

Too bad it?s a 4 week lead time. Maybe they?ll beat estimate.

Finished the trim upstairs except the parts around the stairwell. Once stairs are in I?ll finish that trim and carpet will go down.

In the dually I bought true Phillips HiD kit from Europe. It was pricey like 220$

But in more than 4 years I never had an ounce of trouble out of them. I did also pull the DRL fuse

Up at 04:00. Got pork butt seasoned and on the smoker. Pulled the toilet downstairs and re installed with new wax ring and bolts. No more wobley toilet.  Removed the condensate pump from the AC and blew out the line which was clogged. Replaced with new pump and some algaecide tablets. Kept the old pump for backup.

Organized a bit in the shop(at least enough I can get through the door) then went into town to the flooring store. They?ll be out to measure and provide estimate today. Went to Lowe?s for a breaker and for some electrical trim.

Now cleaning up waiting on some family friends to arrive.

Not bad productivity today. Only 7 cups of coffee....

Well i assume you don?t have a meter in it so the lines at the top are not hot.

I don?t see a neutral on the 100 amp from the garage.

You should have 2 legs of 120 and a neutral. Then your sub panel should have a separate ground rod and the panel should not be bonded to the ground. 

Only the service entrance panel grin d and neutral should be bonded. That?s the only place your neutral and ground are together electrically speaking.  In sub panels the neutral can be current carrying and bonding it to the grounds can lead to a risk of shock

Well it?s not like I?ve been on vacation...

So I picked up my order of rough cut lumber. Also bought a dewalt miter saw stand and started cutting trim.

Stained some as well as the doors upstairs.

Also spent some time at the floor store looking at tile and carpet. Wife went today and picked out tile

Installed the LG dual zone mini split today and yesterday. Took my time and got it right. It?s running as heat pump and warming the space up quickly.

I remember it. An obscure punk band in the 80?s, The Judy?s, had a song call Guyana Punch....

There's a strange one in the jungle

And I think I here him calling my name

There's a strange one in the jungle

And he's offering death without pain

Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up

There's a strange one in the jungle

And he says that death need not hurt

There's a strange one in the jungle

He's got something to quench your thirst

Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up

Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up

Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh

Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh

Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh

Guyana punch, uh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ooooh

There's a strange one in the jungle

And he says that now is the time

There's a strange one in the jungle

Here come the planes, please form a straight line

Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up

There's a strange one in the jungle

And he questions all that one thinks

There's a strange one in the jungle

With a new and exciting drink

Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up

Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up

Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh

Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh

Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh

Guyana punch, uh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ooooh

Guyana punch, wuh-oh, wuh-oh, wuh-oh

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.
