    Covid Hit Home this Month

    We got to video chat just a bit ago while his wife was visiting, he's been requiring more support and having other issues, he either has blood clots or his body is just giving up, the doctors don't know yet, never thought I would be rooting for a blood clot. He did move his head around several...

    Covid Hit Home this Month

    Not a good day, no luck on the trach, in the middle of the night last night the ventilator tube got disconnected for like 20-30 seconds and his o2 sats went way down and now he is requiring more support from the vent, currently on 80% fio2 so the surgeons won't even comment on when they think he...

    Covid Hit Home this Month

    OK, got an update, they have decided to do the Tracheotomy in his room instead of moving him to the OR (since he responded so poorly to the move), so the plan is to do it tomorrow, he is at the high end of the range of vent support so there is some concern if he can hold enough oxygenation...

    Bad Day today, we had him lined up to get the trach, surgeon called it off because he had some subcutanious air in his neck and wanted the doctors to figure out where it was coming from then just an hour or 2 ago he had another Pneumothorax, he didn't handle the move to the OR and back very well...

    Covid Hit Home this Month

    Hopefully Mods are OK with this, if not I understand. Toward the end of August my dad called me to tell me my Brother and his Wife have Covid, didn't think to much about it at first since they where just quarantining at home (and both my parents had and recovered from it last year), then Friday...

Did the Cedar Split Rail Fence (only about a $170 all in on the fence), did a flag pole, installed some Black Chain Link Fence Top Rail's as posts to support the tension wire for...

    Headlight Adjuster HELP

    well, finally have an update on this, I used a Dremel with a Cutoff Wheel and cut the "adjuster tower" (where the red line halfway up the tower is in the original post) off the back of the headlight in question, sure enough the adjuster screw was not holding in the nylon part AT ALL, looks like...

    DRL Killer / Quad Hi-Beams - Idiot's Guide

    SO like you could use 87A on a 5 pin to make something run UNLESS the headlights are on then it would turn off? so like a DRL if you wanted to make a custom DRL LED strip or something or would it be powered even when the vehicle is off?

    DRL Killer / Quad Hi-Beams - Idiot's Guide

    MANY years ago I did the Diode at the rear seat/BCM mod for quad high beams, now i'm working toward doing HID's (will be retrofitting some aftermarket headlights with projectors), I don't like the HID's firing up with door unlock and I don't like the idea they are running at all times or that...

    Horrible Fuel Mileage

    well can't speak for OP's issue but I was getting absolute garbage mileage, used to get 14-14.5 then it became the weekend car and mileage dropped to around 13 MPG (as it's now just the drive from home to town and back, where I get better mileage on the drive from town to work and back) so some...

    GMC....Enough!...Enough!....

    3 years, shit I think Toyota has been using the same commercial for a DECADE+ Now, they just replace the showroom portion that you see after the woman tears away the wrapping paper and cut out the part where she talked about the specific models.

    Well That Escalated Quickly

    Got my lights all strung up, eventually i'm going to remove the light fixture the string is plugged into and relocate the plug to a new outlet above the door. Next phase is once lumber prices come down I'm gonna build a roof under the deck (above the lights) so when it rains the area stays...

    Oil Pressure Gauge Issues

    after a weekend or 2 of driving with the new radiator I have some updates, 10 minute drive to town no problem, barely even reaches the old operating temps if it even does, on return trip home temp will creep up to a dash or 2 above middle but if I kick the heater on to fan speed 2 it will drop...

    Oil Pressure Gauge Issues

    Got that radiator installed, that was a pain in the ass to do without removing the fan and fan clutch and honest review, it wasn't that "direct fit", the filler necks where off slightly from the original part and the bottom "hooks" for the AC Condensor where to high up, but I managed to make it...
