I went to plastic, had it done in minutes.

Ive had a drywall business .... want some advice , I'll give it anyways......the transision fron those plastic corner beads to the metal beads will never work use one or the other. when you splice two together use a small piece behind them as a backer and keep the two pieces alignedthe small backer should be about 4" use screws not nails or staples to fasten the bead ,,,the radious should be a nice curve with no points...BEFORE you put the joint compound on,,,use some drywall tape "the paper type" only,dont buy that mesh crap...where the corner bead edge meets the sheetrock and the but joints (never overlap the beads always but joint and use the factory ends on your but joints not an end that you cut... you want to use tape there too otherwise it'll crack...when the tape has dried you want to do the first coat with a joint compound called "Plus-three" from USG (united state gypsum" itfills with less shrinkage and extremly ez to sand ...LOOK for it thats a big one...(Tip) if you still have my number call me or Pm and I'll give it to you...I prefer metal beads and you need to know how to get them on without any points..

I'll explain how to do them easily and prefectly every time....you'll be proud.

The Goodguy's shows all do the Auto Cross. That definitely would be fun.

Might be fun to see how the '53 does someday. It should have a pretty stout drive line though not terribly powerful. The 402 should be an honest 300 hp or so.

I think the tv shows are more so entertainment than anything. Hire the weirdo guy, the funny guy, and the serious guy and you got a hit show scripted for television. Screw showing them work with their hands, let's film them arguing instead!

I got to keep the truck mild. It gets 20 MPG (imperial gallon, about 17.5 on a US gallon) on the highway and I drive to the States in it every now and then

But yeah. After seeing and hearing the pure grunt in some of those cars, yeah the bug is there itching away already.

The snow has been gone since April 1st.

It usually returns at about the 20th of December. It came earlier last year though.
