We got a bunch of little things done on the Falcon. Changed all the vacuum hoses for the tranny, adjusted the modulator, changed all the cooling hoses for the tranny, all the fuel hoses, fuel filter, air filter, and fixed the left brake/signal lamp.

All in all it drives like a different car! It shifts properly, WHOOOO HOOOOO. It drove us crazy how it stayed in first for ever!

I had windows 10 installed about 2 months ago as every one knows I have had nothing but trouble..posting pictures reading Emails messages ,,,page saying not avalible with this browser.
My wife works for Shaw (Warren Buffett ) they sent out letters ,yesterday ,How to remove windows 10 they are removing it from all their computers ,Shaw Brokshire Hathaway and all of his other companys ,,they say your Security is at a BIG RISK, I will post it if possible ,,don't know if it is a private letter will kmow Monday
I just un-installed it. If you paid someone to install it, take it back and have them remove it.They should have the program to do that.

New rear flex hose. The old one was collapsed. New wheel cylinders too.

i took an extension cord and a fan out to the house i am wiring and swept the water off the floor again and put the fan onto the wet wood floor to try and dry it out. hope it doesnt rain any more. what a ball buster. this guy who is supposed to be the "general" on this is in Jamaica. wont have any money till the framing inspection is done. the framing inspector wont pass it until i am done wiring! i can't get done till the house dries out and that might not happen until the roof is on. the 'general' cant put the roof on until i pass inspection. so.... the fan, hoping it works, and sun shine on wednesday with more rain in the forecast. i dont know what is going to happen. people shouldn't go on vacation in the middle of time sensitive projects. and people shouldn't tar paper a roof and expect it to be water tight! ESP WITH NO ROOF JACKS over the plumbing vents! idiot!

Sounds like the inspection process is a circus too. The frame inspector shouldn't need the wiring in before passing the frame. Around here, the shingles go on right after the siding to get the structure weather proof. I don't think the electrical, pluming or hvac guys will set foot in a house until it is closed in.

That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I am a Electrician and have never and would never wire a house without 4 walls and a roof. Id be calling his office and the state office.

I got all my ABS drain and vent piping done in the house. I will get the garden hose out tomorrow to fill the system and check for leaks. Keep your fingers crossed for me as there are a ton of glue connections.

I worked at a restoration shop in the late '70's and the owner had a lot of memorabilia. I remember a Ford Dealership parts list from 1932. The fenders were something crazy like $10, wouldn't that be cool!
