    Doing some wiring on my ATC. Using an old Colorado 3rd brake light and wiring it up to do park lights, brake lights and turn signals. Then using some LEDs in the front for turn signals. IMG-79f9427c96c7f4a895442985d581cac3-V.jpg IMG_20171202_062333.jpg

    Yesterday, disassembled the speaker mounts for my TV that I made out of square aluminum tube and flat brackets, rattle canned them gloss black. Let those dry overnight, mounted them back on the TV this morning, fed the wires through, and mounted the TV brackets on the back.

    Was going to try to add some reinforcement to the ceiling joist where I planned to hang the TV, but after getting up there again, there was no easy way for me to get in there and place some boards to support my weight, let alone get the insulation out of the way. TV is about 60 pounds, so shouldn't NEED it, but woulda been nice to have. :yes:

    Got the ceiling bracket, downrods and extension up, now trying to figure out the height I want it at. I think right about here will do it, center of the TV will be right about where the top of the mounting plate is. :undecided:

    IMG_20171203_102427.jpg

    The good news is, if I decide I want to adjust the height once the TV is up, I don't need to take the TV down first. One of the leftover pieces of 2"x4"s is long enough to use along with my scissor jack like a pole jack, to support the weight once I remove the bolts to make the adjustment. So we'll see how this goes.

    Once I'm happy with that, I'll start on the mini entertainment center for the components.

    Ordered an LM486 Flasher (Rockauto surprisingly had the cheapest price for once :laugh: @ $28.79, next cheapest was $44.19 on Ebay) and OEM splash guards.

    Great price on the flasher. I paid a lot more than that through Amazon.

    Woke to hear the sound of a diesel engine idling on the side of the house where the cameras were setup. Load the app on my phone to see a pleasant surprise. The county was FINALLY picking up the debris that was dumped there for months.

    Not too long after that, when I was in the garage, I could hear another large vehicle outside. Poked my head out there, and one of my neighbors across the street had a tree service come to remove a huge oak tree out of their front yard. Same one we talked about following hurricane Irma. So when I saw them taking a break, I went out to have a lil chat with them about the pine tree in my back yard.

    When they wrap up with the neighbor, they'll stop by to have a look at my situation and give me an estimate. Insurance company said I have to "trim" the pine tree since it's up against my shed.

    Really there's no option besides removal, so hopefully it won't cost me an arm and a leg. Also good that I got those rear gates rebuilt, so they can get their trucks back there if I go with them. :thumbsup:

    Replaced the battery in the lawn tractor/snowblower as well as its seat. The original Honda seat was thrashed. Will now take a nap before this evening's shift.

    Moving some snow. They've been forecasting it for a week and finally got one right.

    Feeding the mod bug. Dad got an f150 4x4 for a work/beater truck for our rentals and it gets few things plus I got the stereo itch for the DD since the truck has me spoiled with bluetooth and navigation.

    Cleaned up the 'new' '05 TB. Boy did it need it! Still needs more, but it's a start. Always hated working on filthy vehicles. Un-motivational or something I guess.

    Pulled the horrid cut up rubber floor mats someone threw in the front. At least the stock ones were still in the back (on that note - anyone have a good set of black fronts for sale?). Pulled out the vac, and the carpet cleaner and went to town. Wow. Someone didn't care. Cleaned everything 2-3 times, and it was STILL coming out like mud.

    Cleaned the seats (Auto Glym), then went at them with the balm. Looks nicer, smells less. Good start.

    Kept checking shipping stats, for 'stuff' to show up. That was my day! :smile:
