    Not sure if there is a thread like this anywhere on the board....I tried searching but only came up with a couple hits and nothing specific like this.

    I am on a few Dodge 1st Gen cummins forums and this is a very popular thread on most because you can just post up the little, or big things you have done. Because many members don't have a specific build thread on their vehicle, and sometimes you don't want to start a whole new thread about just giving your vehicle a bath or changing the oil etc.....but you can toss up a note in the thread.

    So maybe we can give it a try?

    Decided to stop blowing off my tasks.

    Changed the oil and filter and went through the ignition system. New plugs, wires, coil, recrimping some bad connections, and cleaning up the engine bay.

    I'm on several non C-Body forums that have this thread and 90% of the posts are "I washed the vehicle today" complete with pictures of the wash job. Its raining here so technically my NYB is getting washed today. Since it is raining I'm buying parts for the Scat Pack.

    I like this kind of thread. Nothing exiting for me today but the drive to work and back. I did stop and take a few early morning pics at an old car dealership. One of these I put on my thread about my car, the other is an extra that didn’t turn out very good. That’s all I can contribute today!

    Rebuilt the AFB on the '64 300. Went well other than I will have to order a new choke pull off, leaking.

    I purchased new inner fender well covers from Detroit Muscle Technologies a while ago. Today I pulled all the old clips off the inner wells and got rid of what remained of the old rubber (not much).

    I drove my C to Autozone and got a solid state voltage regulator for it. VR706 the original cap fits on it. It seems to have stabilized my gauge fluctuating issue.
    Thanks @cbarge

    Also put it up on jack stands to do a second torque check on my suspension and stub frame after about 100 miles.
    Need to replace my rear wheel cylinders while it is up. My rebuilt ones are starting to seep. No leaks allowed. They must have been too pitted even after honing.

    I finally got rid of the old rear air shocks on my Fury yesterday. I put on KYB gas adjust in the rear and it felt like I put in a rear sway bar. Very pleased. I also ordered two new wheels for the front as one has been slightly bent when I got the car and would start to vibrate at 70 mph or so. So I got 2 mopar stock Steelies that Wheel Vintiques makes. I went up in size a bit in width. It was 15/6 and went to 15/7. Took them to my buddy's garage and spun them to make sure they were true and they were. Then took them to the local body shop and they clear coated and got them back yesterday. This Tuesday I go back to my friends garage and have the tires mounted and put in 2 more KYB'S in the front.
    Oh wait a minute. What did I do today? I went to a car show in Hancock MA.

    The weather has been gray and unsettled today. Not supposed to rain but we've had sprinkles.
    None the less, I just got back from starting her up, and rolling it out of storage until she got to temp, then backed her back in.
    Ordered a washer tank and strut rod bushings from Mancini Racing and a new fuel sending unit from NAPA.
