You must have bought a metal kit. I built one of those 30 years ago and if it has "sliding" doors, they suck after assembly too. Last one was a 10X12 wooden kit and the wife and I built it in one weekend, including the shingled roof. It has swing doors and they are so much better than the metal sliders that constantly bind and stick. Remove the sod under the sides and place concrete pads under the base frame to support it, or as the sod dies, it will settle and sink in the ground every spring.

I don't want to think about what I did yesterday.
I bought my wife a new dishwasher like the one we had in our previous house. She hated the current washer and when I pulled it out it had the water and electric supply coming up thru the floor, directly under it. Completely backwards from standard practice and not what the new one needed. I hate soldering plumbing and moving the water supply line 2 friggen feet KICKED MY ARSE. Took 10 HOURS to get the supply line and electric moved into the adjoining cabinet, where it should have been from day 1... 1.5 hours was spent running to Home Depot and then back to Menard's to get 1 copper fitting that I couldn't get off the old copper tubing... The compression fitting I got at Home Depot wouldn't seal on the copper, so I got a better setup at Menard's on the second try.

MARTINSR What did I do, well I swapped out the battery in my Caravan ( my new daily driver.) It was a 5 or 6 year Delco battery and only 3 years old, but it seems these cold temps kick batterys ***** so it would loose a charge every couple of days. Thank goodness when it happened I had a jump battery near by to fire it back up!

Speaking of driving straight thru. Last year I left home at 1 am, picked up a buddy 1.5 hour south of me and then drove straight thru to Chicago for the MCACN show. We got there right around 10:30. Stayed until 5:30 and then drove all the way back. I got home about 12:30, after dropping Derek off. Just under 24 hours straight up, and some people call me nuts...

This year, I'm leaving Friday morning and staying overnight in northern IL and going in at 10am Sat. I'll still stay until around 4-5pm and then drive straight home...
Road hog.

I saw the ad and thought of myself for an instant, then forum dudes, then nope... has to be somebody with trailer that lives over that way. It would not have been there at dark. I was only half suprised to see it today at the shop. Also noticed that when I texted Mike from the grey room about the Pantera suspension, he was on the spot in a couple minutes. I owe that guy so many favors... it was my pleasure to tip him off about the pickup. My only personal satisfaction is in how much it made you "bucks up" guys squirm. Only in Arkansas would that happen.

That blue truck thing was unbelieveable... divine intervention or something... never happen again in a million years. Leave the whining to superchargers.

I am as envious as you on that one. And just as stuck with my wierd stuff. Only none of it has any money in it.

Yes indeed. A 50 grit grinder scratch to boot.

Left work a little early today to avoid rush hour on black ice. Car door and mailbox frozen shut. You nor'easters keep that stuff up there, please!

The got that for FREE. With a clear title! Why? Story is, a Dad got mad at a son. Gave the truck away. Wow. I hadn't looked at CL in forever. What a random fluke. Neens fenders and core support, has an engine.

Yes, of course. I was just stating why I believe it was there.
I can make my own hinges out of stronger material.

Gonna play with some mock up tonight.

It is supposed to drop like 50 degrees today here, and "feel like" 11 F at quitting time. It was in the mid 60s yesterday.
