Was perfect yesterday for moving. What luck.

Today we will be doing something outside. It's the 2nd day in a row of 50 degrees in January! We'll probably be washing out our engine bay, with a garden hose, while we have my son's motor out.
I've tried to not be a weather watching worrier for the past couple of years, but is everyone else experiencing an unbelieveably mild January?

picked up a set of 16" rims for my 09, 3/4 ton dodge. going to clean and paint them for my snow tires. I know the truck takes 17" rims but for a $100.00 all steel i couldn't pass them up. I'll run tires same diameter tires as the 17" ones. I plow in the winter so need 4 studded tires.
did a little busy work on my coupe, took off the calipers and rotors and repacked the bearings clean and painted the rotors them back together. I took some high temp ceramic paint and rolled the edges of the rotors, getting bored i guess. waiting for spring.

I have one for my 4L80E in the Chrysler. Hoping to get a bit of mileage from the rod.
I need to go for a long Stateside cruise to visit some forum friends.
Heck, I may even stop by to visit Henry.

can't get the edit to work, but here is some pics. of the GV unit
|Yesterday 08:31 AM|
each are built to your specs. based on HP and your driving style. street/strip, full race etc.
the tail shaft is removed from your existing transmission. the GV adaptor is added then the OD unit is added to it.
the only fitment issue I had was where the 4 speed shifter bolts on the OD adapter. it has machined bosses and they were recessed just a little to much for the shift rods to line up to the trans. couple flat washers fixed that.
I already had a $1500. polished stainless exhaust system on my car that included a X pipe. that had me a little concerned but it fit, but the OD unit was tight against it. I made a insulated heat shield and placed it between the X pipe and the OD unit.
other that no problem
I havn't had a chance to road test it as yet. waiting for the weather to get better
feel free to ask any ?s I'll try to answer them

Soooooo, no five minutes yesterday or the day before. Wednesday I took my wife on her Christmas present night out to SF to the Orpheum Theater to see a play (Finding Neverland) and we didn't get home until midnight. Then last night I was dog tired and didn't get out there. Not only was I out till midnight we got lost going to the play and walked quite a bit in the pouring rain before the play.
So there are my excuses. The show was outstanding by the way.
Tonight I got out there for a little while and cut out the rust and made the patch panel for the hole. The gap at the rear corner really isn't as bad as it looks.
