She had "other intentions" Nick. I do the same thing. If I take it in for a state inspecton and they say it fails because of such and such, I tell em to pull it off the rack and I will take it home to do it myself. But sir, you have no inspection sticker! Uh, that'* my problem, not yours. And off I go.

I doubt that.

This broad was about as clueless as Conservative at a Gay Rights rally.

When asked when she last had her oil changed her response was "Uhhhhh, I dunno." So I asked her when she bought it she said Feb of this year and that it hadn't been changed the entire time she owned it.

All we have is emissions, and that'* only in the Metro area of Atlanta.

With as much smoke that'* pouring out of her car now, I bet she'll fail.

Running boards came off the Silverado. Looks like it sits higher already. Runs a lot better with a new fuel filter, too. Permanent mounted my in-cab fire extinguisher to the passenger side of the center console.
If the weather holds out, gonna wash it. I have some touch up paint for a few scratches, then I can buff it out with some Ultimate Compound. Then I'm gonna try to take out the water spots off these windows. So far, no glass cleaner I've tried works, and its been this way since I got it. I got some Mother'* cleaner thats supposed to remove water spots, and this truck as a lot of em.

I'm also working on a side project, some wasp traps to keep the angry things out of my way when working outside. I can't be outside for more than a few minutes without getting some to visit me. Gonna try making some traps, and put them up around the front yard and the shed. After having to clean a baseball sized nest out of my passenger mirror on the Buick last week (yes, IN the mirror cavity, behind the glass...surprised the crap out of me!), and even spraying down most of the yard, they still come back. So, I think I'm gonna start putting up some traps, cuz I can't deal with these things much longer.
They make getting anything done outside almost impossible.
At least we don't have to worry about mowing the lawn yet... stuff is brown still.

Rescue Tape Rescue Tape
