Finished an upgrade to the side compartment on the Lakota...
The Welder is laid on to repair/rebuild the forward/factory hitch on the truck. His price will save me a bundle over what I had figured I'd have to spend, so that's a good thing. Only issue is he can't do it until next weekend. So...
... Today I start tearing out the dash of the truck to replace the bad heater core. A job I was holding until the welding was scheduled...just in case.
Ugh... I'm- Not - a mechanic. But the $$$ to have a shop do it is HUGE! The core itself is only 60 bucks... I've been quoted $700 - $1000 for the labor to do the job!
Soooo... the truck is backed into the kids shop so at least I'll be warm and dry while I bust knuckles, curse auto engineers and get it done.
...U do have my motorhead son in law for backup in the evening... if I manage to wrench myself into a corner...
A few other upgrades still hoped for... as soon as the heater core and welding are done... if all goes well with that!
I havent posted a comment for a while. Thought I would say something so you would know this thing is "on". I have been following your blog for quite some time, and I must say you have an interesting life, but you handle it with aplomb. We are in Arizona for the winter for the eighth year now and enjoying it. Hopefully, you will get down here before it gets too cold up north. Sunshine and blue skies is good for the soul, not to mention arthritis.
