Finally cleaned out the garage, so I can put the car inside now instead of leaving it outside... 1 day to do it... 6 months to get around to it!

Hey, it's still progress. I have a car been sitting here for 13 years that I haven't done much too..

Since last week was so dang cold, we put off taking down the last of the outside Christmas decorations until Sunday.

Went to Menard's and got a dimmer light switch for the downstairs bathroom AND installed it the same day...along with an LED rope light on the hand rail to upstairs AND poured a bag of potassium in the water softener that we got today too. No more bringing stuff home from a store and letting it sit for SOMEDAY.

My lights are still up. Plug them in every nite. 2/1 might be the end tho....

Bought a snow scoop and "may" clear off the roof today, about a foot. Borrowed a scoop 2 years ago. Sure works better than any shovel. A lot less work. Work smarter not harder......

Ran up to the painter's shop and picked up all of the epoxy primed bodywork for the truck. I think I found where my diff was leaking. It was coming out where the axle tube goes into the cast center section. Since welding wasn't an option, I cleaned the area real well and scuffed up the surfaces and broke out the JB Weld putty. I worked it into the joint and it appears to have stopped my nagging little oil drip. I am finishing up machining the plates for the e-brake mount.

I'm still finishing up the truck bed floor thing. Heard my next couple jobs are wrecks. Sigh, but one is an old car at least. Hey but I added a cool new album of an old car show today, check that out if you like:

Hey THATS what I was doing yesterday,Puggs. Replaced the meter box, wire going up the mast and replaced the weather head leaving 3 ' of wire hanging out, waiting for the power company to lug it to the pole wire and throw in a meter. All at the new shop.

just helping out a friend with some brake work..

it just got way harder... somebody used grey ultra silicone as far as i can tell to glued the brake rotor to the hub... even though there are 3 bolts holding it..

my puller jaws are too narrow to line up in the holes in the side of the hat section.. i got some 1/2 x 1.5" x16" bar stock to weld side by side with coupling nuts to separate it so i can use my harmonic damper puller up the middle and some hooks of some kind will i gently bank on it..

as far as i can tell.. there are no replacement rotors easily available. but i have not measured this out out yet.
