Enjoying my day off watching the rain. Back to back classes from tomorrow again
Stuck in the cube on a beautiful day
Back at work
Off work and catching up on a bunch of things that were always in the back of my head. Donating to this site again being one of them. Thanks for all the helpful info!
Relaxing this week, no work
Got an email from my home insurance company this morning, to let me know there's a compliance issue with my air handler. Where the 2nd condensation drain pipe leads to a drain pan... There's no drain pan. So researching my options for float switches to replace it.
Yeah I know. I asked my friend I was buying them from, if they had the pedestals, but he misunderstood me and said no. The manuals I downloaded said they had to be 18" off the floor for a garage install, so I made the platform thinking they'd be based at that height. Show up at his house Sunday morning to see they have the storage pedestals, and the taller ones (15") out of the 2 styles too (shorter ones are 10").
I'll try to drop the tank, the exhaust and rear shocks on the old TB today but the heat and humidity will probably kill me by noon.
@WarGawd will be coming by tomorrow to pick up a few spare parts for himself. He's the only other local member.
Since tomorrow is trash day, dove into The Abyss (the nickname for my shed) to excavate some more crap. It's faint, but I'm starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel.
I can actually walk around safely, without fear of tripping over stuff, turning an ankle, or thinking something may bite me cuz I stepped on its tail
Forgot about under the shelves, stuff is packed pretty high under those too
Started a heavy parts pile, for stuff that I'll gently place in the back of the EXT and take to the scrap yard for a few $$$ and some gas money. Lots of boat engine parts, gears, and plates leftover.
This is how it looked originally
Always get a from me for mini meets!
Looking up parts for a coworker's 2000 Bravada. Basically needs every suspension part replaced. Shocks are old but had been done at some point and are OK for the time being. But everything else is factory original and totally shot.
Class after class, nonstop
Well today, continued on with the part out. Exhaust, aluminum driveshaft, transfer case encoder motor, exhaust manifold. @WarGawd came by and picked up the 4 calipers, cluster, rear washer one way valve, 6 coil packs.
Then the fun began.... the running boards. 30 bolts! Couldn't use the impact because the frame was in the way. And 3 of them, the nut broke inside the rocker panel just spinning.
The end is near. Just the rear springs and the disconnect to come out. One last go through the interior for personal stuff and then call the scrap to pick it up.
Here is my bike rack, made by me. In France, we still have to see the license plate and the lights.
Taking my son to Cedar Point today...we leave in an hour.
