Dropped of some stuff for chrome back in Feb and finally got it back and on the van today! Had the hood prop rod chromed as well as the rear brackets and bolts that lock the door in place when you close it. Also polished the wheels for the hell of it. And today I ordered a ton of new chrome for the engine!

Yesterday I re-colored (spray painted with Simply Spray Upholstery Fabric Paint) what little carpet I left under the dinette and around the toilet. Today (since it looks like we may actually get some sun) I need to set out the vinyl flooring to soften so I can cut it down and hopefully get it installed.

That piece of non-molded but was supposed to be molded vinyl flooring I purchased is about 4 feet too wide and the doghouse cut out is 2 feet too small. On the plus side I'll be able to run it down under the step plates negating the problem of piecing vinyl into those spaces. I just have to cut it all down to make it fit.

Put it out of the garage for the first time since last november, drove over to my workplace and than walked over for the local DOT-office, where I reregistered it for the upcoming season.

On thursday evening, I will drive over to a washing-spot, clean the outside, buy a new fill lpg for an empty bottle for the travel-trailer, and on friday will drive over to Belgium for the Wild West Easter Fest 2012 to start the 2012 season.

-Finally got underneath and promptly got a generous helping of that first good van dirt of the year in my eyes, LOL!

After a trip inside to retrieve my safety glasses, I managed to install the Magnefine filter in the return line of my power steering. It's got the one I already installed in the transmission fluid cooler line last summer to keep it company.

Don't they make just the most charming pair ever? ;0)

The Ty-wraps are to damp out any tendency for them to start fluttering around in the airstream, which is pretty strong down there! I *thought* I had some black ones...

BTW, I've gradually been shifting all my hose clamps over to fuel injection type hose clamps, which appear to seal better and cause considerably less trauma to the hoses. Eventually I'll migrate over to stainless ones, but for now I've been using what they sell at the local O'Reilley's, which appear to be galvanized.
