    Bled right rear line of my B2000 pickup and got 4 inches of air out of it. Pedal hard again...WTF? Painted that steel wheel gloss black again as I had it off. 3 more to go. Gave it its 30 minute monthly idle Also cleaned 2 lbs of seed and fruit rinds out of the engine bay...F'n neighbors fruit trees are like a chow hall to the critters around here. Time for some traps and poison up in there. No mercy.....

      No poison please.....Domestic dogs and cats as well as predators for the rodents causing you grief may be unintentional casualties. :(

        Sounds like my brakes... Im always able to bleed them and get them to stiffen up... im going to switch to a newer style MC and new prop valves one of these days.... I dont agree with the free money the government is giving out but it at least let's me buy a couple car parts each time...

        Leaned up the carb after driving it to Sam's Club... drove it to park for the kiddos to play... since the park in our backyard isn't fun enough...

              I'd lay astro turf here and in 3 weeks it would have weeds......We got a few houses around here that have turf. I think its a great idea for the backyard, our front would look too green for our neighborhood.

                    Removed the anodizing from the perimeter of the bezel and polished it.Taped off polished area sanded and painted the center.I’ll let that dry now and figure out how to do the black without making a mess.I already removed anodizing and polished upper and lower grille trim to match perimeter of the bezel.

                          Just banging my head against the wall.......

                          Small blister in the front corner turned into this.......Just dealing with the affected area would mean that I would be dealing with this again in a few years. One of the benefits to doing it yourself. You can do as much, or as little, for the same labour rate:)

                                        I replaced the very worn door weatherstripping on my 66 Barracuda.

                                        Here's a during and after picture. I also buffed the stainless outside door sill.

                                        Now its time to try out the Wathen's I picked up last night :)
