Plug day.

New SI got plugs to, no idea what they got on them in all honesty.

Exhaust turned out nice. 

Your "land of junk" threads always entertain me.  I like to follow your pursuits.  The label on that plate made me chuckle.  Years ago, with one of my Harley's, my wife would ask me why I spent so much time fiddling in the shed. I told her I was licking the bike, and when I tasted something I didn't like, I would replace it.  Happy New Year.

It's one of my favorite snapon tools. It works so much better than feeler gauges or the round gap tools. They are only like $20

I just ingested this entire saga! 51 pages. Bravo!, Author, Author!

    The story of a guy growing up in Ohio! I laughed, I cried, I ate popcorn. Thanks for chronicling all of this. Hoping many young folks read this and realize that they can do it too! I lived the exact same story, except in my story everything was different but the Highs and the Lows were identical!, the Triumphs and Tragedies! the Hopes and Dreams, the Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat!!

Wow! All 51 pages, that was a read! 

Fun fact, not originally from Ohio, was from Arizona then Tennessee and after that Ohio, I just take my role as Ohio man very serious. 

I appreciate the kind words! I'll keep it up!

Great gift, love that!

Similarly, I made these (at the time no one was making them) for a bunch of buddies that I always go up to Tail of the Dragon with as a gift a few years back

Since the ranger is getting pressed into backup winter duty guess this is a thing I should do. 

Also changed the cabin filter in the blue civic. Roughly 2 years old.

Blue civic is gone off to its new home. 

Rocker got fixed on the jeep, and fender flair got painted. 

Before: it was repaired here very poorly at some point. 

Fit up. 

After 

Fender flair no longer black 

I also went caliper painting nuts till I ran out of paint.

Front end clunk was definitely the broken sway bar link. 

New wheel bearings, wheel seals, swaybar links and some paint later we are back for some more miles.

Also got a new to me from the trash power washer to replace my one the pump locked up.
