I have to go pick it up. I ordered a Mossberg Plinkster 802 for my rifle instructor course that I am taking tomorrow.

For the Caprice. Had the stock radio reprogrammed to enable all the functions and will be adding USB and auxiliary input as soon as the cable comes in at the dealer.

Another HDM relay. If this doesn't last long I guess I'll have to upgrade to the $120 gold plated one.

Also got some JDM Astar 194 LEDs for my license plate lights.

Going to replace the cats and disable the front wheel drive components over the long weekend.

A Displayport to MiniDisplayPort cable to run from the Video Card to the Vive Control Box since I HAVE to use the ONLY HDMI port on the video card to run to my TV because my Computer will only properly display 4k resolution when connected to the TV now for some reason (I used to be able to run it at 1080p) and the Displayport to HDMI cables don't support 4k res and just crash the computer. And the MicroBypass to disable the parking brake lockout on the new headunit I put in over the weekend.

"Nothing, because the arseholes at USPS keep sending and delivering my passport photo's to the Pittsburgh distribution centre...for the last 3 farking days." My wife's and her mothers passport spent four or five days trying to leave my area bouncing between two post offices here last month-we can relate!

Black colored rear interior quarter panels (this way I don't have to repaint mine every few years) and a very nice Dremel Versatip; I can't wait to use this baby.

It get better! It went to Pittsburgh, then Cleveland, then back to farking Pittsburgh and now finally to Tallmadge for delivery today. In what bloody galaxy does it make sense to send it from one state to the right state and back to the neighbouring state again?

this big boy arrived while I was at work today. I sold my 27" 1080p monitor to my mom to go with the new Computer I built her that she finally picked up last week when she came to town for my Nieces High-school Graduation so I needed a new monitor, I litterally had 2 desktops with 2 video cards EACH an NO MONITORS other then my 4k TV which is a HORRIBLE computer monitor because it has some of the worst input lag in the world.

a little box of goodies from Amazon, got a package of varying size of T-taps that also have a quick disconnect so you can unhook them if you need to which will make some wiring stuff easier, this little guy that replaced the 12V charging port next to cigarette lighter which connects to the ports on the back of the new radio so it's got a nice clean factory looking install instead of cables coming out from behind random panels and an assortment of Type C USB cables of varying lengths, it was a 5 cable kit, 2 3ft., 2 6ft. and 1 10ft., I put one of the 3ft. cables in the car to plug into the new port I added so I can use Android Auto (confirmed working) on the headunit and got the 10ft. on the charger which even supports fast charging, wasn't expecting the fast charging to work over such a long cable.

Got some surfactant to go along with some herbicide I'm expecting next week. Also got a motion sensing dimmer switch for my kitchen, with a matching wall plate.

Bottle of Tenacity herbicide showed up, one of the top rated crabgrass killers on Amazon so figured it was worth a shot. Wasn't expecting it to show up until next week, but it got here today. Pretty potent stuff, this tiny bottle (8 fl oz) is supposed to be able to cover an acre of land. So I should get a few applications of it, and see how well it performs.

got tired of the level of noise coming from the blower fans on the Founders Edition 1080ti's while mining so I happen across this updated hybrid conversion kit from EVGA that happens to be onsale at $100 (normally 140's-160's) so I bought a pair of them and got them all swapped over, here is a side by side before and after and a few shots along the way.

part of my Ebay haul from the 20% off sale I posted about last week. I know it's probably pointless but there are just so few "bolt ons" for these trucks so why the hell not, give me an excuse for cleaning the throttle body again (which hasn't been done since I did it shortly after getting the trailblazer more then 3 years ago, feels like longer then that but I bought the truck January 25th 2015 and cleaned the throttle body on Feb 7th when I changed the spark plugs)

A good Norton pad for my air DA sander, ordered one last week that was made in Taiwan that fell apart as I opened the package :mad:

I was just there 4 months ago. If I was still there I would have traveled to the manufacturer and slapped them for you. I will let you know if I do. I did stop by the Depo factory and showed them pictures of the broken headlights they sent me last year. They where confused that I traveled all the way there to show them those pictures. They where also shocked on how large I was compared to them.

My new Ceiling Fan, my old one was a noisy tacky, cheap piece of crap, this one is inaudible on low, barely audible on medium and pretty much wind noise on high, but thats what happens when you move that much air with just 3 blades, got it from Amazon, it's solid wood blades (probably Balsa Wood or something similar based on the weight of them) and the new headlights that was the last of the 3 things I ordered on the Ebay 20% off thing (I don't have pictures of the first thing yet because I wanna get them installed first), I can't get a proper photo of them, the reflections make them look much brighter then they do to the naked eye, in person the main part of the inner housing (aside from the reflector bowls) looks like a black chrome kinda finish.

Well I had to send back the traction bars and the sway bar had some wrong hardware which is being sent to me and wont arrive till the 20th. Summit sent a different style traction bar. $90 cheaper and its powder coated yellow. That will stick out like a sore thumb. If it works I will be painting it black.

Super nice led third brake light for the truck. Unfortunately crap design that's supposed to fit but absolutely doesn't. Everything lines up but the top edge. Quarter inch gap. I'm very let down, it matched my tail lights for Pete sakes! From what I remember when searching there's no other option that's similar so I'm stuck with the stocker. Did get a pic tho that I'll attach. I mean the plug is right and everything. I'm bummed. Luckily Amazon will let me return it.

Also some decals. Not sure if I want to put them all on or not, don't want to overdo it but they're pretty inspiring to me. (real American vibes like the preexisting one)

you will NOT be disappointed. I just did a lawn renovation (kill everything (glyphosate) and plant seed in Feb of 2017, seed from seedsuperstore.com)
Tenacity is the SHEET. Use the syringe, as directions say, I used less that 1/4 bottle last year. It takes care of weeds. It kills them by denying photosynthesis, so grass may turn whitish, but give it a week or two and its back normal with regualr irrigation and a little fert in the summer.
