Dave57210 Not exactly a "work on", but automotive anyway.
Picked up a "new to me" ride - a 2007 Lexus LS460
Sweet! 95,000 miles on it, but looks, rides and drives like brand new.
Couldn't believe the power it puts down. A 4.6 engine (280 cu inches) with 380 HP. Yes, on wet pavement, but, at 40 mph when I put the spurs to it, it kicked the tires loose and the traction control came in to get it back under control!

I think I may keep this one for a LONG time!

Too Many Projects No car work today. Got the furniture moved to 1 side in the basement entertainment room. Then washed some dirty areas on the walls, spackled a bunch of holes and then cut in around the window, base trim and door with paint. Gawd I hate doing this, but somebody has to get it done. I took time out to plow, after it quit snowing too. Only about 1.5 ". They initially predicted 4-6...glad they were wrong.
Back to the Jeep tomorrow...

Well, thank you for the vote of confidence but it was a fail. Now it pours at the bracket end. Maybe I should not clamp the brace to the elbow.

My conclusion is I should try plastic elbows, use RTV before installation, stuff more in behind that best I can, let sit overnight, refill, and hope for the best. So, right now I am shuffling things to the GT and moving it into the garage, making sure it has coolant, then tackling laundry and such and trying to forget about it until I can start throwing minutes per night on it. Probably be next weekend and that Friday afternoon is ate up by Christmas party. Big inhale, small exhale. GT needs the work, I reckon.

it comes in a can, disguised as paint....

I HATE painting, but I may end up finishing a room downstairs that our son started a month ago. I'd like it done before we have the family over on Christmas eve and he is busy with finals for school...

Funny, I was just talking to my boss Friday on a company trip in the car across town about his weekend and it was finishing up cutting boards he made for Christmas gifts. I have to say, his were damn cool looking but I think you have kicked his butt!
