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...

Getting the elbow stabilized is a big accomplishment on that set up. I believe you are on the right track with supporting them to relieve strain and wear on the o-rings seats.

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.

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...

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!

Jeep is about ready to go home. The owner is going to make a bunch of mods, so only wants it rolling. From this point, it needs the hood and wheels on it to leave. Dave is going to check the frame again, as we had to pull the axle over 1/2" yesterday to get the track rod in the frame bracket. Once he is satisfied it is as good as can be, it will leave, maybe this weekend...
