WEC 6h Spa WEC 6h Spa

It’s over, but just put up on YouTube. Relevant to some of our interests.

Damn it.  Damn it. 

Went for a ride after work. Got to the lock and damn just at sunset. And I get home after 30-40 miles and my side cover is gone.

Back at this place again.  Back at this place again. 

Que the rage inducing anti-aesthetics. I do feel bad for this construction company though. They didn’t design it and have had problems the whole project, like building on a hill and after a hard rain a section of the building went down the hill and got scapped off the plans. All this new stuff and it’s all built from…

Old house, asbestos, crappy workmanship  Old house, asbestos, crappy workmanship 

I’ll start with the asbestos seam tape on the duct work and then the actual duct work next. This is asbestos seam tape. It’s usually a high percentage but not necessarily dangerous if in good shape and left alone.

Damn, working on cars sucks. If I did a bit of research I would have been prepared or at least know what to expect. I changed my van brake pads Monday after work. More after the Jump , Feeling Froggy?? We’ll jump...

New shoes

After the last Cooper tires we had, I probably wouldn’t have bought more. But $300 for a set with OEM 18" rims, was too good to pass up. And they swapped the wheels for me.

These tires are loud.  These tires are loud. 

Up and out grade.

I have a lot to to today after work. Going to check out a set of tires for equinox, 18’s

208370 miles, 6,440 miles since last in January. Meh. I stuck a magnet on the drain plug from a (harbor freight) nut driver bit a couple oil changes ago.

Garage sale display HAWL!  Garage sale display HAWL! 

Best $5 spent today. Neighbor said her mom did the stain glass work up top but doesn’t do it anymore. I put the kids triangle harbor freight behind the GT350 for aesthetics. Need to mount this sucker in the living room I think.

When at the end of the day coworkers break a 2” water pipe.  When at the end of the day coworkers break a 2” water pipe. 

SharkBite fittings are the best. This is the biggest I’ve ever used at 2”. That and and the adapter to go to a 1/2” for the hose bib was $75.

Swapped some stock mufflers and removed reducer plug.  Swapped some stock mufflers and removed reducer plug. 

My stock mufflers have that plug riveted on ( these had screws) so I have wanted another set to tear up and get a more aggressive sound. I look forward to the commute to work tomorrow. I’ll see if it’s annoying or just enough.

This is horrifying to watch them throw asbestos around like spaghetti. These people had no idea...

Not quite Svend levels of clean. I also hadn’t a discussion again with my dad today about daylightsavings time and seasons

White tailgate and all. These people are a piece of work.

Dumping bins into metal & trash. The lull is for lifting out of lower area. It’s also drizzling, yay

After a trip to the pet store for a new dog lead and collar I stop in to goodwill on the way home. I am triumphant!

How long will it last?  How long will it last? 

The previous high bid was $666. I’ll be seriously surprised if it goes for under $1,200.

I have new neighbors and I thought they weren’t Jalop. I was wrong.  I have new neighbors and I thought they weren’t Jalop. I was wrong. 

You can see why I came to this conclusion from the photo above. I’ll admit, sometimes I’ll get home and before exiting the car connect to my WiFi and check up on Oppo or other internet related things.
