Just more random stuff have laying around.
The SoCal fast food tour continues.
A couple of pictures of what I do at work. A couple of pictures of a friend's youngest boy after the last time I went riding dirt bikes with the friend and his three boys. The boys were all in the 18-22 age range. I was 45 and my friend was 44. It got up to about 95 that day. We had sweat pouring off of us (needless to say). After about three hours, the boys were ready to lay down and go to sleep. The two old guys still wanted to ride. We weren't wore out at all. Of course, we did save some energy by keeping our bikes underneath us while the boys all wiped out at least once. The last picture is of the same friend's truck. In 1999, I went with him to pick up a rolled 1997 F250, Ex. cab, long bed, 4X4, 7.3 PSD with an automatic. I helped him turn it into a Crew Cab single axle, short bed. Granted, he did do the majority of the work himself, but I was involved some. You have to look close to tell that it's not factory (assuming that you didn't already know that). The tell is that the gap between the bed and the cab is extra wide when compared to normal.
Couple more to finish out the trip.
Actually got to board the plane from the rear which was different.
Bad pic of the Golden Gate Bridge.
First snow (skiff) of the year.
Had a minor milestone the other night myself.
That's the dash in your '91?
That’s my 09 RAV4 that I daily. The 91 will hopefully be new again next year. I think she’s at 96k for the second time.
Thanks! I knew that you've done a bunch of cool mods to big red, but I didn't recall seeing a not stock gauge panel being fitted
I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to all the Chevy guys out there! Just taken out my front window less than 10 minutes ago. Yes the hydrant just started leaking and no, I haven't had time to replace it yet!
Yep, more of those three wheeler pictures. I spent Friday afternoon, yesterday afternoon, and about 5 1/2 hours working on a three wheeler getting it back into riding shape. Short background. I traded this one to another guy with it running great. He didn't want to replace the parts that i had put on it, and I ended up getting it back from him. About a year ago, I decided to ride it around. First, it was idling too high and then it wasn't getting spark so I let it sit. I got the spark back, cleaned the carb, drained the tank and put fresh gas in it, and it still idled too high. It turned out to be a simple carb adjustment. In order to get it into rideable shape (for me) I put new tubes in all three tires so that they would hold air for more than a couple of hours. New tires to come later and then they will be back to tubless like they're supposed to be. The rear fenders were only about half there so I swapped on another set that I had bought earlier. I HAVE to have working front and rear brakes, so that was next. The rear brakes worked fine, but I told the other guy that the front brakes worked, but liked to stick part way on. He didn't attempt to fix the front brakes, but it was an easy fix. The brake cable was hanging up. I just put a used one on the works, but will be swapped out when the new, correct one comes in. Then it was test ride time. Normally, this would have taken me about 1 1/2 afternoons, but between messing with another one a little bit and fighting a chest cold, I feel happy to have gotten this far. I didn't make it to my brother's for Thanksgiving due to the weather, but his wife invited me for Christmas. Now, after getting this one rideable, I have something good for my 13 year old niece to learn to ride on. Here's a few work-in-progress pictures. A new seat cover is also on the way.
