Dragged 20 sheets of 1 1/8" plywood up to to the second floor of my 2-story addition.....then proceeded to spread it out...and then cover with plastic to protect everything from the rain.....

BECAUSE....I will be in Texas for the next 2 weeks and we have rain expected in 5 days.....

Just the usual shuffling of stuff from one pile to another...
Embarking into the world of LSX swaps,picked up a 6.0 truck engine and accessories,trying to make sense of it all and looking for something different to swap it into...

Default Re: what did you do in your garage today?

I've been working on my pickup -

Replaced the gas tank - cleaned, undercoated, new straps, fuel filter and paint.


I had broken springs and rotted out hangers - those had to go.


A few week ago I did a timing chain, water pump, crank pulley, balancer, transmission swap and yanked a header to weld nuts on a broken header bolt to remove it from the head.



Last night I did some super ghetto exhaust work - I booger welded in a chunk of pipe I had to cut to get to the transmission lines (trans swap) and I hacked off the blown glasspacks and hastily clamped on a new Thrush muffler and hung it with a ratchet strap. About as redneck as it gets, but it's a LOT quieter now and will last just long enough to get it to the exhaust shop next week. This is a plow truck - it might get 1 mile on it before the exhaust.

Wow, how did you get it in there with the brake booster in place? I really loved my '72 and '78, but I gotta admit the new booster and heater box design for '79 and up made it easier to work on them.

I think there already is a long standing thread like this, but it's good to see people are still active. I feel like a slug looking at what others accomplished.

I got the fun car put away for the winter, checked brakes and cleaned wheels:


Then got an old snow blower running after a 3 year hibernation. Are they supposed to look like this?

- Built the last 2 cabinets of the window seat and bookcases for our son's nursery - sounds like he may be coming a couple weeks early based on my wife's doctor appointment this morning.
- Re-built a shelf over the area where I keep trash cans since the town's trash company issued 65 gallon trash and recycling totes last week
- Cleaned up a bunch of crap from using my garage as a woodworking shop the last 5+ months - time to make room for both vehicles for the winter.
- Washed, waxed, and cleaned the interior of my wife's Escape just in time for 4 straight days of rain and snow.
