I found and picked up 2 15x6 inch wheels my Fiesta caps will fit today for the front of Precious.

Hope to finish and install the bottom cushion cover for my seat tomorrow.

Footer inspection went fine, got the approval. Now we just have to get the weather to cooperate.

One crusty, dirty ventilated float bowl... This is why you don't use a palm nailer to shake loose a stuck float. Lesson learned.

Well, I didn't get anything really done on the truck today but I enjoyed bolting on my eBay treasure that came in the mail.

Ok, this isn't a "Man Cave" this is a "She Shed" but I just finished assembling this Husky adjustable height two drawer table I got for my wife. HOLY CRAP this is a super quality, strong table! You could built a motor on this thing! We got it at the Home Depot for $229. One without the drawers is about $199. No kidding, wish I had this in the garage, if I had the room one would be there tomorrow. It comes with nice locking 3" caster wheels. It's model number HOLT5202BJ1/307723266

Your Ebay find is good,
But I sure like the hood.
If the truck were mine.
5 a day I'd find.

I'm gonna try. I may try to drill a couple of small holes through the crack so that I can push a little bit inside as well to help anchor it. In the meantime, I will be searching ebay for a replacement carb.

You guys are lucky. I hate this place where I live.
Look what we get at a much higher cost: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/hus...ble/1001053006

Drill a hole at the each end of the crack to stop it from growing.

I don't get it, when I googled that item number I posted the first things that came up were the exact ones at Home Depot (which I call De-Pot, my family hates me for it LOL) but also ones that are identical but black on Amazon for WAY more money! That table I got for $229 was over $500! I don't get it, they are the identical table, just black instead of white. I was thinking it was all about marketing and that Husky (or what ever the companies name is that produces Husky) simply had a deal with Home Depot toll manufacturing the white ones for them at the reduced price. But now you are posting a link to a Home Depot web site with the same higher priced black ones! WTH?

I know it's a marketing game, and I don't understand them all of course, but this is every odd!

The link I posted is a Canuck HD site and the closest thing to yours. They don't sell your model here. We pay more and get a shorter unit and no drawers.
Most things up here are almost twice the price now.
