Hour Drool Hour Drool

And before we bother to mention his parking lets remember he’s already had his day in oppo court. 99% sure it’s the same person as the cars seem to flip flop but always park in the same spot. We named him Asshat Management.

Is the correct bacon to pancake ratio. As per cbell’s norm I make breakfast in the middle of the night so I can wake up and serve the fam with minimal effort. I’ll make some omelettes in the morn too. Fyi all that bacon will not be consumed in the am. Glorious blt’s will be had for a couple days.

Found On Road Driving Found On Road Driving

I keep seeing old fords. Maybe it’s time we change that “found on road dead” saying. Is this a Maverick? It was certainly loved by someone to keep it running and looking pretty good.

Next project will be completely refinishing the wheels but so far I’ve repaired the Honda Cr-vtec’s Air conditioning system and cleaned it a bit. Can’t think Autozone enough for renting free of charge ($130 refundable deposit) a very decent AC manifold gauge kit. Also hit it with a clay bar and random orbital buffer…

3rd gen CR-V on 1st gen TSX Wheels? 3rd gen CR-V on 1st gen TSX Wheels?

So our beater CR-V’s wheels are pretty badly worn from 9 years in the rust belt and it now it needs tires too I’m trying to find some cheap wheels that fit and dont look silly. The rims are really all thats holding it back from looking clean. A quick and bad photoshop to see but I think these may do. $100 for the set…

Just bought this nifty hitch mount bike rack. Just bought this nifty hitch mount bike rack.

Cheap on Craigslist. It has 4 bike positions came with the hitch lock too. Our family will get some fun use out of this. Unfortunately the air conditioning just stopped working in the CR-noVtek. Makes a little cool air at idle but it just blows hot at higher speeds. I’ll have to dig in but it might be my 1st repair…

That has nothing to do with cars other than I have to move a car to play. Hung it sort of uniquely, dart board mounted to a cabinet that is mounted to a sheet of ridged insulation board all suspended by ropes that are hung from hooks from the wall. I’ll be putting hooks on the front and back porch as well so I can…

Oppo-opinion Honda Cr-V with Ford Explorer Interceptor wheels minus center caps? Oppo-opinion Honda Cr-V with Ford Explorer Interceptor wheels minus center caps?

Looks like they would fit perfectly measurement wise (would be a little wider than oem but I’m cool with that). The only thing that worries me is the fords center bore is 63.3 and the honda is 64 will this still work? Also can I move the TPMS over? They are very alike in design. Seller already got rid of the center…

You be the judge. Really is a beauty of a car I’ll give them that.

Main board? More like mangled board Main board? More like mangled board

Coworkers sad attempt of a main board swap. “It won’t boot at all now that I sawpped the board” I’m counting 6 maybe 7 bent pins on the cpu socket. Smooth move exlax. Ah well stuff happens.

Hyosung motorcycle? Hyosung motorcycle?

As seen on Craigslist. Weird I didn’t know they made bikes. Just noticed they make Atm’s the other day and when I checked wiki it listed all kinds of stuff including “high end apartments”. Kinda neat.

Replaced the front motor mount and the radiator on the wife’s Caravan. Both jobs I’ve never done and wrapped it all up in about 1.5 hours of labor. $45 for the mount and $110 for the radiator and fluids. Spent about $500+ less than a shop would have charged me. Always feels good to wrench and save some coin.

The Nintendo Family Computer. Long story short I make a living creeping around fixing things often in the dark of night. Welp I couldn’t pass up a turn on this once I saw it sitting there. Super cool I’ve never even heard of this thing before but yet there it sat in a nearly empty building ready to go. It was really…

I'm either a genius or an idiot I'm either a genius or an idiot

I bought a radiator from Amazon prime. The wife’s minivan has spung a leak on the plastic end cap portion. I’ll be slapping it in later this week. It was really cheap only time will tell if it was a wise choice.

What? $59 bucks? Count me in for that experience.  What? $59 bucks? Count me in for that experience.
