all my cars are sleeping. the garage is in winter mode, which is 4 cars in a three car garage. but harbor freight had the skates on sale this summer so i picked them up, makes turning the firebird sideways a ton easier.

mostly have been working inside since its been cold and rainy, i got an antique fireplace from my parents, that belonged to my grandfather, they used it till a couple years ago and moved into the small house. i gathered some chimney stuff when i saw it on craigslist, but when i went to the town the inspector wouldnt let me use any stove that has no downloadable specs that she can verify. so i bought a newer stove and put that up, she is supposed to be looking at it tomorrow.

Thanks for mentioning the car skates, I am going to pick some up- forgot they are readily available at Harbor Freight.

You check with the town inspector before doing residential repairs and upgrades.... very honorable.

Funny you mention that; we recently sold a house and one of the legal documents we had to sign is that we pulled a permit for any work done that required a permit.

We took delivery on 2 new propane powered trucks at work this week. They are a GM 6.0 with a propane fuel rail and injectors where the normal gas injectors would go. Wondering what will wear out first.

Propane= Reliability? & You may think you are saving now now...but..You Will pay later in repairs.
I suppose you still have to build the engines with hardened seats right?

Hey guys. Long time no talk haha. Been away from the forums for a while, had a few issues to straighten up and get things back on track. First off is a "new" laptop, as mine crashed completely a couple weeks ago. Haven't had a chance to look around the place since I've been gone, saw this thread pop up and figured I'd check in

Yeah I know propane is hard on the top end since the valve guides don't get the proper lubercation you get with gas. But hey it'* job security right?
