Harbor Freight 25" long 1/2" breaker bar, this is a fine tool for the price, I got the seat base bolts out, I had to heat one, it broke on me, may opt to drill it out and tap the hole, no access to the bottom for putting a nut on a bolt. The floor is very rusty, Ive cleaned the passenger side and put naval jelly on it, ordered replacement panels, I hope they don't take long to come in, I need it completed to make it to GSVR. This will be the last time I do this much work to a vehicle, I'm too old, and so is dad, we had not expected to have to do so much work, I think after replacing the floor pans, I am going to put fiberglass over them to water proof it all, just in case the windshield can't be sealed.

Jasmine (16) and I started the morning out cleaning the dryer vent out and shorting the vent hose to get better air flow.

The tires on our hand truck were dry rotten and kept going flat, so we grabbed some never-flat wheels from Harbor Freight while we were grabbing parts for the QAR van, and replaced those when we got home.

Several parts runs for starter bolts and shims. Spent a lot of time swapping starters and determined the wires are just too garbage to continue, so planning on splicing in some wires tomorrow and re-routing those. Not sure what all else we will get into tomorrow.

I haven't been doing much of anything this year or going anywhere with the 69 A-108 van due to taking care of an elderly sick relative out of state. This weekend I had the chance to go to a car show on Saturday, and a cruise in on Sunday. I didn't win anything and the only other vans I saw both days was one VW poptop camper van painted with really nice hippy style art. One thing I noticed both days was the kids really liked seeing the van, which was worth more to me than a trophy. The younger kids probably liked it because it was similar to the Scooby Doo van, I don't know, but some teenagers and young adults liked it too. Even though I got there late and had to park in the outback, it's easy to see a full size A body van from a distance, and some people make the trek out to where it was parked. (in at least 2 cases because they were following the kids) The younger kids looked bored at the nice looking 55-57 chevy's or sports cars, but when my van (or the VW) was spotted, that sparked interest, including people taking pictures. smile

Had an eventful weekend.
Almost... Almost got the POSifica back together yesterday.
Was going to finish it (or get close to it) today, but saw an ad for a boat that looked nice, so we contacted the guy about it.
We'd been looking to get a smaller boat than our old one ever since we sold it (last spring), but the market has been so crazy that prices were high and availability was low.

It got so bad that I actually gave up the hunt for several months.
I casually looked the other day, and saw that some boats were not sold after two or three days on the market, so I figured it might be safe to venture back in.

We brought one home today.
YAY!

The vacuum gauge from Harbor Freight isn't that cheap!


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave
