The color is Very close to what I am thinking,,the white I am thinking adobe beige a factory color.. just running thru my head,
The pic I changed wheels on for you yesterday is a previously edited one (it was red and white with Cragar S/S wheels) that I found and redid for you in October of 2018 in orange and beige and I was certain that you were satisfied with both colors at that time.

That auction was last Saturday and I have no money, after buying a different house with a smaller shed, which means I have no room for more cars either.....at least until I put up another shed...but then I really won't have any money for a long time...:(
You have stacks of money hidden around the house,,you have kept so long it has turned green..:D::D:D

I have a wheel barrow you can use to roll it out to the truck.

I took my stainless trim to Steve so he can drill the holes for it and then spent 3 1/2 hours at the Ophthalmologist getting ready for cataract surgery and stents in my eyes to relieve pressure for my Glaucoma.

I really enjoyed the first part of my day the most. 😳

I didn't think the last project I would work on out in my garage would be welding on a bunk bed! We got Nick's bunk bed on Craigslist free and the phone rang off the hook! Well we hadn't got it outside and pulling the mattress off I saw what he had told me about but I didn't have a good picture, a BUNCH of cross tubes had broken welds and even broken in half! Geeeez, I got it out in the garage fired up the MIG and welded it up before the guy got here to pick it up. That Craiglist free and "Freecycle" is awesome! We gave away a bunch of stuff so it will live on, very cool.

I've used that service to get rid of "stuff" too. When we moved here there was a shed that had not been maintained and was in rather poor condition. I let it rot for 4-5 more years and then bought a nice kit from Lowe's. The old shed was all wood with asphalt shingles and I couldn't just light it on fire, we had to demolish it and dispose of the detritus. I told my wife I was going to put it on Craigslist for free and see what happened. I took detailed pics of all the problems and what it would take to repair it and posted it. Same thing, I had a DOZEN requests for it within a couple hours!! I made a "road" out of 4 sheets of 1/2" OSB for the forklift to drive on out into the yard, picked it up, very carefully, one side at a time and put it on blocking high enough for a guy to back a snowmobile trailer under, strap it down and drive away. It was gone in a matter of hours and I had a bare area for the new one...:D

My son lives in Duluth, about 160 miles north of us. He has been in the moving phase for a month to a town about 90 miles south of there. He was supposed to have a 17' u-haul truck and a car trailer "reserved" for this from 2 weeks ago. His high school friend lives up there too, and he was going to help load all the belongs up, so I could meet Adam at his new place in the afternoon to unload.

He called here, Tuesday night and informed us that his friend claimed he, suddenly, had to work, when for the last 2 weeks, he wasn't on the schedule...
AND u-haul called and informed him they only had a 10' truck available and no trailer !! They CLAIM your reservation is guaranteed and if they fail to deliver, you get a $50 refund. That is a very deceptive clause, as they need to call and confirm that the equipment is actually on site and available before it is guaranteed.

That seriously left him in a crappy situation, so at 6 am yesterday, I hooked up my trailer and drove up there to help him load everything and bring his car down. His car was parked at the u-haul dealer and I had to take him over there to get it back and I had a very intense discussion with the manager about their fraudulent deception of what is a "reservation".. .:mad: Neither of us will ever deal with those jerks again.

Anyway, we worked our butts off for 3 hours to pack all his stuff in this tiny truck, load the car and get down to Isanti to unload it all. About 10 miles into the drive down, I picked up a vibration in the steering wheel and saw the left front tire on the trailer seemed to have a wobble in it. I kept an eye on it and pretty soon it was hopping madly at 60 miles an hour. I pulled onto an off ramp to look and sure enough, it was separating and ready to blow out. I hadn't loaded the trailer spare tire in my truck the night before and as I was hooking up the trailer at daybreak, I had a premonition that I should take it with and the jack and 4 way wrench. I tried once to pass it off, as I wanted to get going, but gave in to the gut feeling and threw it in the truck....what a miracle I payed attention to that feeling and brought it. I had to call my son, as the pickup was packed too and the spare was in the rental truck and he was about 10 minutes ahead of me. I had to limp it along at 50 to get to the exit he was parked at, but I got it changed and we were back on the road in 10 minutes.

Pay attention here, Brian. This is why I asked if your dealer will let you take spares with, instead of waiting for hours for one of their service trucks to bring one out and get you going again. I almost blew off my own advise and would have been forced to haul the wheel around until I found a place to buy and mount a new tire. I would have had to strap it on the roof of the pickup topper too, as there was no way it was going in the back... wow, I sidestepped a major issue there...:eek:

Oh, THAT color. In theory I can change that more readily than wheels because I should have the masked layer separate already. Interesting combo but I bet formulas vary across town at the paint stores. I kinda liked the combo in those pics. If you want the orange tweaked also, show me a sample of that too.

John, if the Doctor asks you if you want lens for far or short distances, consider one of each. I was offered the combination and declined. I thought it was the dumbest thing I had ever heard of. Sorry me. I lost the ability to see close up without glasses. A problem I didn't have before. I did however renew my drivers licence for the first time ever without corrective lens. But not being able to do close up work is VERY frustrating! Talk to your Doctor so you understand !
