That last post was a little heavy. I still think about it. Anyways, this post is just about life and whatever. We finally arranged to get ourselves rid of all the crap in the building — so no more repoman (for now). That left me with just enough money to get a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee that needs a bunch of repairs.
But having a second vehicle again started the process of cleaning out the garage. We have some new shelving (courtesy of the building) and the volume of crap that had accumulated in a heap in the garage took us most of the afternoon to wade through.
The Jeep was affordable because it requires two major repairs: a pinion bearing (the pinion is the input to the differential) and an oil pan. Of the two, the oil pan is required before I can get a safety certification, so I’m working on that first. In fact, we’re doing a lot of work this weekend. In addition to the first part of the jeep repair, we need to do the coilpack, plug wires, rear drum brakes, and an oil change on the Taurus. You will be seeing some more car repair blogging very soon here.
I’d write more, but this is a light post (I’m sure I’ll wade into the politics much more shortly). I have to go get under the Jeep and get this done today so that tomorrow is for the Taurus. I left the oil draining before dinner (and the engine cooling — hot engines are a pain to work on) so it should be ready to get to work now.
I’m going to try inserting a gallery at the end. This is an experiment. I’ve been asked for pics of the truck.
