Glad to hear you are in and all is good. Good luck finding anything in the move. Some stuff will simply never show up again.
Oh yeah... we came across the Proper Compressor at Lowes first thing this morning... Me and Brad Drooled all over the massive Dual stage Iron Pump... Karen looked at us like we were ...... well .... sick and or crazed

But yeah I like those Compressors

Noooo don't look, don't drool. Show him how to spend his money on it.!

BTW..no problem since you don't want to drive anymore boosted cars. I'll keep that in mind when you get here. We'll keep you away. :P

I'm sure we are gonna get to the $$$ spending stage... Gotta let him get settled in first

No No No... You car is not Boosted.... Its got Serious Forced Induction( SCHO ).... I have to drive it and travel through time...

Brads car would have been pretty fun if the trans could keep up... We'll see what we do with it in the next couple of months..

Geez I walk away for an hour and you guys talk about spending money

Right now I am still at the apartment. Since cable won't be turned on at the house until tomorrow, we thought we would just camp out here tonight. And we are far from settled in...the garage is a total wreck, and 3/4s of what is in there now will make its way into the house in the next few days or so. I also just spent some $$ on outdoor stuff to dress it up a little bit (Biglots is the ****), plus I got me a creaper with adjustable headrest, since I will be needing it now

Things are goin' to be a bit spendy in the comming month, mainly on Jinx and all the necessary tools to finish the trans job. Karen has been wanting a few things but has put it off so we could get this place, so now is the time to grant her a wish or two.

Glad to see Brad is getting the house together... Slowly getting things into their prospective places... Including the new Spot in the Garage for Jinx...

We backed her into the garage .... Our first thoughts were... Woah, Damn Who knew Bonnevilles were so long

But she fit right in...

Had fun with you guys....

We'll all have to get together and have a cook out with you Orlando neighbor..

X2 on the cookout. If I get some notice, I think I'll be able to get Liz over there too. We all can bring the food, you provide the place.

Oh Cool, CookOut!, I'm there

Just kidding, congrats on the new place Brad.

The rest of you pirates, give the boy a little breathing room before bankrupting him on garage improvement projects

*Phew*

Master bedroom - check
Kitchen - check
Dining Room - not yet
Spare rooms - far from it
Garage - , eh, it'* done

Few things I noticed about this place. One...when it rains, it floods. I need to get gutters ASAP, at least up front. I also need a garage door opener, but I can wait on that until after the Bonneville is done with the trans work. Another thing I noticed as far as the garage goes...it only has 3 power outlets. Nowhere near enough to support a full complement of power tools, so I am going to have to run power strips to compensate.

Good thing I have a few trips to NY comming up...I could use the extra cash

I have all of two outlets in my garage! Needless to say, they get a lot of use.

Three should do fine for you until some later date.
