The driver's window was really hard to crank on my Strato Chief. I decided it was time. I pulled the door panel off (you could see it has never been off before) and greased everything up with a nice light lithium grease spray. It's about 90% better. Still maybe a touch stiff but I'm not scared of breaking something when I roll the window up and down. Less than an hour, time well spent.

Just admiring some nice welding on a frame at my buddies shop yesterday. I love the way the exhaust gets tucked up there so you never have to worry about it catching those speed bumps.

Not a chance. I wish I could remove the radio and antenna but without paint work, I can't.

Tachometer went in because it's standard equipment with an M20, otherwise nothing more gets added. (Well, except option L36 and G80!)

Was that a V6 option in something newer?

I know I almost fell off my chair laughing at work one day years ago when I saw the option code for the Geo Metro 1.3 four cylinder....................L72

Yes, that's where I store my spare powertrain items. Dougie has no room under his bench because, well, you know why........................

Sold the wrecked Echo this week. Nice to see it go as it was difficult to look at every day. Got enough to purchase a few sheets of "Smartside panels" to fix my outbuilding.

I wasn't home when it left. Connie sent me this photo. Apparently the guy had a hard time towing the trailer with the car on it using his own car. I would suspect his Nissan was only rated to tow $1500 lbs.

Hi Todd

Wonder if he made it home in one piece? The trailer doesn't look like it is built to haul a car. The back end looks like it is about to cave.

I'd say if his tow capacity was 1500 lbs, his trailer was liked rated for that by the look of it. No problem here but the Yaris weighs about 2200 lbs................ I'm impressed he got it loaded.

Well seeing it's been pretty nice here I thought I'd tackle some interior work on my '17 Ram. Installed 3 rocker switches- lights in the grille and my light bar for the lower bumper yet to be installed- as well a dual USB port for my dash/rear camera. While was taking the interior apart I thought I would add some accent color to the dash/console. If you look at the hood vents you'll see green lights in there. In the middle I installed a row of Amber for signals-YES they do work.

Did some one man framing this week.  Quite happy with the progress. 12 hours to lay out 4) 26' walls, drill 25 holes for anchor bolts, 2 trips to building supply for the material, cut all the studs and then frame and sheet the 10' walls.  I'll be 64 in a couple months.  Then had my 66 year old buddy come over and in less than an hour we had all 3 walls standing and nailed together using my wall jacks.   Owner is pretending he is a plumber and is putting the nuts on the anchor bolts for me.

I like seeing the footing walls rather then a floating pad. What are the rules there for this? Think at one time we could go 24x24 max with floating pad here

I like that idea too. I'm hoping to have a 30x40 garage in the next couple of years. May end up doing it myself to save some $$. The hard part is finding somone competent here to do the concrete. The concrete in my existing garage is a disaster. Huge cracks and heaves.
