Oil change day for the Impala. yay. Hopefully I can spend a few minutes on the Chevelle. Oh yeah... I get to replace the battery in the Civic today, too. It has been slightly slow cranking the past few days, and it actually left me stranded at my buddy's shop yesterday. Used his "jump battery" to get me rolling home. Sticker shock on the price of batteries now, sheesh! I'd almost rather have a pull-cord recoil start on that little thing. I guess I can't complain but so much, it's a 2012, so 5 1/2 years out of the OEM battery. I'll have it tested before replacement, of course.

Well got out to the shop for the first time in a while and sand blasted the 37 Chevy door hinges and replaced the bushings and pins door fits a lot nicer than before.

I am happy right now because I finally got the neighbor lady to understand that she hurts my car when she mows and did it without being rude.

Been considering assembling a condensed version of a build thread for that red Biscayne and possibly others but even just that is a gigantic task, especially without a PC. Just don't think it would have much value without detail. Y'know, just showing what was done but without the how. I'd like to try some other colors on the Catalina too. Having no shade tree this year is affecting my cars negatively, I end up just staying indoors doing things that are free such as naps and photo edits. Had the big Pontiac out last night at dusk though. Wished it could last forever, and wish there was a good place to work on my ET or at least stomp it good.

Battery in the civic was not good. I had it on a maintainer charger overnight, so it was showing fully charged this morning. I don't have a load tester, so I just watched a voltmeter while DD#2 cranked it up. Dropped down to 10 volts, and then up to 14+ running. Their load tester confirmed that it was bad. Replacement went easy-peasy. Picked up a set of wiper blades for the wife's van while there, so she's happy. Had DD#2 out helping me with the Impala oil change since it's her car. Quizzed her on a couple of things under the car and had her check and top off the air pressure in the tires. All in all a good morning/early afternoon. Out to dinner now for her HS graduation. Only bad discovery was that her wiper blades are absolutely falling apart... time for a new set there too.

Only thing more shocking than battery prices (pun) is wiper blade prices. All WAY too high. When it rains, it pours. Didn't realize you sort of play with Hondas so I'll ease off the rice comments. Wish I had a penny for every grain that I crash fixed.

I had mentioned threads and staying close to the mailbox earlier and as it turns out that was not a bad idea for today because there was new threads in there. Spankin new GTO shirt from TMP. I can wear that and nobody will recognize me because it isn't black. Thanks, Mitch

Edit 2: Yes, 1/2"-20 TPI, duh.....
Weird that it came with those threads. I always use #2 Permatex on the threads of headbolts when building an engine. Never have had a problem with coolant getting in the engine oil.

Threads in the good ole USA used to be UNC for coarse and SAE for fine. Not sure what designation is used today. TPI is a new one for me.

No sweat on the Hon-duh comments. It's a commuter car essentially. I may drive a bit of rice, but am not a ricer by any stretch of the imagination.

Threads per inch, perhaps?

Same with the GTP, stock and punished daily but I'm not all into drag racing it and stuff. V8s are for that. Five or six years is what I have been getting out of parts store batteries. Some newer things are more gooder.

Batteries are all about me as well ATM. Wife's car didn't start about 2 weeks ago, I jump started her and went to local parts store, result..... New battery, $200. Then daughter comes around yesterday, dad can you have a look at my battery. Went through problems she had. She has a limited budget so I put her onto a guy I know who parts cars out. She went there on her way home ( sat arvo) and he replaced it with a year old battery. Her car is a small 4 cyl Mazda. $40. She was happy as larry. She's getting her next tyres there now. I keep my man card after all that.lol.

Later gator
Russ

Spent the day getting parts around to fix a brass fitting I broke off. Playing around between rain storms. That turned into a day of getting parts. Well it is fixed and I am happy. 48 cold 32 hot in gear and not a drop of oil on the ground.

Boyoboy math ain't my strong suit, is it? If I did, it wouldn't buy much supper. Plus there were many pennies in repairing each Japanese vehicle. Open mouth, insert foot, do not pass go, etc... I'm in the middle of a good Midway documentary.

Yes, threads per inch. 1/2"-20 or 1/2" UNF. (F for fine threads.)

I haven't gotten out to the garage yet today, went to a day long birthday party at a friends house. In his back yard I had to laugh seeing this little compressor. I bought my first house using a compressor just like it (actually smaller, this is a 3hp) in my shop. Back before HVLP and lacquer, I literally saved $35k in less than a year using a little compressor just like this!

Sorry, no photos. Just got out there and put in my "five minutes" grinding some welds smooth and removing what was left of the windlace channels, getting it a step closer to getting some primer on it.
