Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Had my VW tire pressure gauge come on Friday night twice. Went to tire shop Saturday morning. Sidewall nail. FML.... replacement tire ordered. Came home and put new rear calipers on Ghost. Went to shop and tinkered with the Ford. Still will not idle. Sunday worked in the yard burning already cut trees and pulling up stumps with the Ghost winch.

I'm growing my families existing printing business to include full color vinyl graphics, banners, posters, canvas prints, car wraps, etc. In hopes to one day quit my current job and do that full time.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Long term money pit lol. Eventually I am going to make it 4wd. I have a 4.0 out of a 98 or 99, don't remember which, but I wanna build a stroker. I would love to swap the nose and dash/interior from a 99 XJ that I have lost the title for, but that may be a pipe dream.

Oh yeah. I needed to see how tall that fastener could be. I should be able to get the double shear easily with a 1/4 or 3/8 plate. Ill do the same on the drivers side too.

Cool. 17" wheels with little backspacing make that so much easier. lol There's a mile of clearance there on mine.
