They are custom turned locally. Just a bit more than their standard price.

I added the final touches to my mother in law's house that will go on the market tomorrow.
I lie, I have two very small things to do today on it, then I will never touch it again, I can't believe it! Over the weekend I went around the place fixing crappy work done by the contractor we had repair the house. It had a LOT of damage, we had to tear off the 8 year old roof because of termite damage under it that her mom didn't have fixed! About 60% of the roof structure had to be replaced. Like wise for wall studs and plates. All the windows, all the doors (many were broken), it was crazy screwed up.
I have called my brother to tell him how much I love him and will call my sister today. Telling them how much I appreciate how back 14 years ago when our dad passed away and how we all worked together on the estate and never questioned what the other was doing. When my brother sold the house I can't imagine thinking for a second if he is asking enough,or if he was doing the right thing painting it or replacing the carpet. I never thought for a millisecond that he would be getting something out of the sale that my sister and I aren't, that he would be getting a "kick back" or something out of some scam to rip off my sister and me.
My brother, sister and I went through their stuff in hours and picked what we wanted and walked away done. Weeks later my brother came to my door to give me a ring of my fathers saying he had thought about it and I wanted it more than him.
I had to call him to tell him how thankful I was to have the brother and sister I have, that I love them with all my heart.
I didn't have to think about doing this if not for my wife's siblings. They aren't "brothers" and "sisters" (well the few that are being *****, they are simply "siblings." My wife is an angel, she literally wouldn't charge a candy bar on an invoice for something she bought for the house. LITERALLY! She is a walking and talking angel, she is getting such crap from two of her siblings I want to punch them in the face! They aren't here, or that just may happen! It is mind blowing how ignorant they can be, and how evil they can be!
She has such a big heart, OMG if I was the trustee as she is, OMG I would be putting the $10k charge that she can legally put as Trustee for being the trustee and I would then divide it up and mail a check to the brothers and sister who gave no crap, and a letter to the ones who did explaining what I had done with the $10k and that they get none of it. She could legally do that, but would never because she has a heart of gold.
Damn I love my brother and sister!

been doing what all the rest of you do.. playing with cars..
one project just got harder. i feel like such a tool sometimes..
Imgur: metric Spanner nuts looks like i need both sizes to change the suspension rod ends. have to pull the coil overs.. i think i will order some nuts also.. those look like they attempted to remove them with a chisel. the rod end has about 1/16 of an inch of slop... and every time the 385-35-15 tire hits a spot in the road where it drops. you get this Clunk from the rear suspension. there must 10 of those nuts on each rear suspension.. the fuel tanks i think have to come out so the suspension or at least the coil overs and the spindle need to drop off.
and this weekends job was creative. this is something probably only a few of you have ever opened. took me something like 30 minutes of heating and gentle prying and slicing to pry open that oyster. 2011 E250 5.4L PCM opened and solder joints examined. - Album on Imgur and those were before pictures.. i wish they had come out better.. my cell phone even at 1" from the circuit board in macro mode does not get a clear enough image to see the cracked solder joints. so i resoldered all of them. man what a difference it made. still throws an instant P0305 on that 5.4 E250. but its probably a seeping head gasket. coil and injector changes don't fix it. cleaning the injectors helped also. so in a week or 2.. if it lasts that long.. KAPUT.. off with the heads. the cylinder heads that is. my first dive into a mod motor. does not look that bad after i get a decent look at it.
and do i get a chance in this weeks Rube Goldberg prize with this fuel injector cleaner.. see attachment.

|Too Many Projects||
I buy most of my Mobil oil at WW, as it's less than other places. Just don't buy the Fram filter, there are many bad stories about them on various vehicle forums and my friend had one restrict his oil pressure to almost half...
This black, pink, tan comment isn't going to evolve into TMI, is it...

I noticed at the beach that black, pink almost any color and "tan" go together real good.... Unlike Mr farmers tan here......
