    Don't want to rush things, yanno?? Of course it helps that the farmer got his crop off early this year and there's no snow yet, (and very little rain), so I could access that area....

    I'm sure the corner/side of the lot looks much better now. You can probably even see some cars and trucks back there!

    I like the style of the chair. The redo doesn't look bad either. I did a chair in leather last year. It turned out okay for a first attempt. I have another one that I'll be doing sometime in the future.

    All prepped and ready for my new top lift cylinders to arrive for my 68 300. Based on the amount of hydraulic fluid under the seats and quarter panels, I have to assume the old ones must have been leaking for years.

    Putting some finishing touches on my book case wall. Made of Ikea Billy bookcases with header, footer and mdf trim. Certainly the frugal way to go considering prices of pine shelving.

    The wife works for McCormick so testing the height of the shelves for fit for significant work items. We have some of the last little metal cans of pepper and various local team additions. But yeah its odd normally.

    Pulling old tires from old rims to see serviceability. Several had pitting so they're off to scrap, one had rivits vs welding.

    When's the last time you saw 14 inch 60 series Mickey Thompson Mach I s? The chromies will get cleaned up and re used.

    Clearing some land with the Country Squire.
    She wouldn’t push snow if her life depended on it. Pushes piles of branches around the yard all day long though. 65 years old with one rebuild on the 9hp Wisconsin AENL.

    Rebuilt the Edelbrock Performer 750 that came along with the 68 Newport project car. I've heard these are pretty good carbs so I figured I'd give it a go. Hardest part was removing the old gasket material.

    I thought I heard the rear brakes starting to grind on my Colorado, so Saturday morning after 2 cups of coffee to get me going i went up to work and pulled off the rear drums. I found this...

    New shoes, ready for the drum.

    Passenger side shoes were worse then the drivers side.

    Cleaning the needle and seat / carb on the 9.9. Hope to get out fishing for some delicious winter Chinook during the holidays. One of the few places in Canada where if the weather cooperates we can go Salmon fishing in the morning and driving the cruiser or street machine in the afternoon. IMG_3982.JPG

    Because I live in the rust belt my daily Colorado needed some love on the frame around the front leaf spring perch on both sides.

    LF side of the frame

    Installed an auto rear view mirror on the Magnum. I really like the fact I can install all the little accessories that DCA decided to not include on the Magnum but did include on the 300/Chargers.

    Had the old Edison Phonograph in my attic for years. The case was in really bad shape. Don’t know why, but I decided this was the time to fix it up.
