silentpoet Aired up my truck tires. Really need a better air hose, told santa about that already. The flexzilla that TSC carries would be nice.

Later I may work on the caddy getting the motor ready to pull. Still debating how to do the pull. Want to pull the tranny too because it needs at least a replacement seal on the back. I have a plan to pull the tranny and motor at the same time. What I would do is pull the caddy just outside the garage and then pull them together. If I leave it in the garage before I pull it, I will do them separately. But either way I want to pull the car out and organize my garage.

I need to make either a lifting plate or engine leveler before I pull the motor. So I might work on that some either tonight or this weekend.

doing it the same way as this on my car
