Well, I'm not dead, just crazy busy. The weather has seriously cut into my car time, not to mention life in general. Got a new teaching gig and am trying to catch up with house stuff.
Looking forward to getting our new fastback out in a month or so.
Okay, back to grading...

Put our brand new RV up for sale. Just not the direction we want to go.

Trying to sell our Ekornes chair too.

Have a garage full of stuff I'm now trying to clear out. Sold a 83"WB VW pan 2 days ago, so that helps. Got a long way to go. Need to sell the dune buggy and my cafe' racer next.

I had my fire suppression go off on my food trailer. Just as I opened, so I spent half the day cleaning. Then brought it to the installer and paid him $1000 to to refill and reset. I guess those cold days when I turn the fan off fatigued the links and one failed. Lesson learned.

Wow! That Sucks Big time! Shouldn't be that easy to set it off by "stressing" it... the installer should do something to remedy that situation and prevent it from happening again as well as pay to do it all...

I was running the fan very little. Being still cold out outside, it was my heat. I froze yesterday and ran the 100% of the time. Does suck!

Sounds like faulty sensors to me, but I admit I'm not an expert. Still, this does not sound like it should have happened.

Well, I think the guy said the links are good to 240. The hood gets real hot with the fan off. The fryer is set at 350. With the fan on in this cold weather, the hood is cold to touch. The links are up in the hood behind the grease filters. The whole system is manual with cable tension. Link breaks, system fires. It's just a little soft metal nub that holds it from firing. Simple and sucks. Lol.

Have to seal a few more spots that let air and water in and tighten the steering box. Got so much play in the wheel!

Just put retractable 3 point seatbelts in Rosie. Had to make a custom bracket on the bottom to hold both points. Back is killing me and the weather is damp and cold. Felt good to actually DO something though!

Parts for the welder arrived today. Now I get to plan out my angle of approach I disassembled the foot pedał to get a better sense of what wires go where. I figured out how to wire up 4 of the five wires.

Just got a lead on a 1974 semi-auto Ghia, original owner, 47,000 original miles, new engine but doesn't run. I need it like a hole in the head, but what the hell, right?

Back in 85 when I was replacing all the front suspension parts on my 74 Cutlass, I started off with the tie rod ends, the inners fit but the outters didn't, brought em back along with my original parts, turns out somebody swapped the parts from a Ford into the Olds box, they did the same thing with the ball joints, uppers were right but the lowers were wrong, same thing, somebody swapped the parts into different boxes, was the biggest PITA thing I ever did until I bought a starter for the same car in 89 from AutoZone, I splurged for the one with the lifetime warranty, after the 4th one went bad I took it back and asked for my money back, I quit buying parts from there when Oriely's opened up a half mile down the road, the only time I buy stuff from them is if it's a Sunday, otherwise I go to the place that opened up in 1962, I don't know what I'm gonna do if they ever close, they have always treated me right
