Worked on my custom hood for my truck for awhile, then forgot I need to put the wire mesh on first before I put the back of the hood together. So I have to buy some wire mesh tomorrow. I also charged 1 battery for my Bonneville and charging the other one now.

Worked on my engine a bit, was to cold to stay out there to long. Stopped off and picked up a 15mm deep socket 3/8 drive and a short 3/8 extension.
