    I wouldn't normally wear a suit and shell shoes, but I was at work and we had to check RIGHT NOW (according to my wife), so I went there as I was dressed. My old work truck is a 92 F-150 with 150,000 miles. So, I definitely know what you mean!

    I don't have a desire to rebuild a transmission. But, over the years I have learned a few things here and there. It is very satisfying when done.
    I had never considered it. But, wheels are expensive. So, if I can get some I need and at the same time buy something else that I can make 10X my investment, then why not! I don't mind getting a little dirty. I think I'll wear a T-shirt and Jeans next time, though.
    DITTO! That is how I do all sorts of stuff that I am unfamiliar with!

    Haha, I'd like to help someone do it and learn never have to be in a situation where i have to do it myself.


    Yeah but there's a large investment of capital needed for tools. Also, I'd rather not drop out of med school haha. Once I start tinkering, there's no end.

    I want to swap the front end of my motorcycle to gsxr one, but there's a lot of one off stuff required and I'm not totally comfortable playing with that sadly.

    You would be surprised how many garages will let you work in their space and use their tools for a small fee. Small, independent shops are quite willing, especially if they are new or business is slow and you can always pick the mechanic's brain. That's how I replaced the clutch in the aforementioned truck 20000 miles ago.

    PS. Sorry about the OT

    Case Opener Tool. $6 at Walmart.

    Also be careful if you try to wind it, it's possible to over-wind.

    Haven't been out recently because I've been going though stuff I already have. Got rid of a lot so waiting for my little trip to the Catskills area next week. Hopefully I come across cool stuff up there.

    Alright so it would appear....

    That this label:

    [​IMG]

    Is from roughly 1968 - 1976.

    So this coat is 39 - 47 yrs old. Someone must have really taken care of this thing for all those years, for it to not be full of moth holes or totally shot. I always wonder how stuff from the East Coast finds its' way over here to the West Coast.
