We were supposed to get hit by the latest system overnight into today. It broke up before it got this far and all we have is light flurries. Maybe get an inch accumulation. We were -14 a couple nights ago.
Bumper looks nice, the tag light, is it also a brake light in the center ?

You should've posted that in the trivia thread. I've never seen anything like that before. Almost looks factory, but I can't believe they would be that irresponsible.

I guess I'm down to about a year left on the house build.
Been running wires all day today. Hopefully I can get insulation and drywall in 2 months. Lots of other things to do before this though. Every time I turn around, I see something else to do.

All water and drain pipes are done and inspected. Framing inspection done.

If the year turns into hot rod time estimates, it'll be another three.... I miss working on my car.

Not much to show. Some pipes and some 2x4's and some wires.
I did get the ducts all framed in in the basement ceiling though and the central vac pipes roughed in inside that framing.

Spent the whole weekend wiring up the main runs.
Just need some warmer weather to shove the garage feeder cable outside and pull it thru the existing conduit to the garage. I have to rewire the garage as I had used a romex cable inside a conduit which is a no no.

At least I'm getting use of the #6 wire that I pulled from the garage run. It's feeding the sub panel on the first floor. I had a bit of luck with it. I had to cut 2" off the ground and white wire only. The rest of the wires on both ends were exact....well it could have been about 6" shorter and still would have fit, but I like some extra wire in every box/panel.

Not un-common when the man ruled the roost!
Here's a couple more.

And a modern version.

I re-torqued the head on Marge today. So damn funny that this info is in the 1/4" thick (if that) owners manual. Today car, it's an inch thick and it doesn't have a single page on maintenance or repair.
