I've been ignoring mine for a few days due to the freeze plug disaster. Hopefully get back on it in a few days.

Got my mess cleaned up, all tools are gathered, awaiting the coming rain tomorrow, I hope there are no more leaks, and if that windshield so much as drips, there'll be hell to pay, if they have to pull it to reseal it, the glass man will put the damn clips in for the trim, as he should have done in the first place, I detest half ass work, they know the trim requires clips, they should have them on the truck when they come out for the job, I call no trim installed a job not completed!

I had a "professional" windshield guy nearly break the door glass on my MR-2 because he installed the weatherstrip clips incorrectly.
He also cut an 8" strip out of my headliner.
This was from a "reputable" nationwide installer.

Tire shop told me they'd not put 255/70R15 on my van, as if they'll not go on stock rims, which my rims are aftermarket, tho I haven't a clue on width, but know the tires will go on 7" wide rims, so I gotta buy rims for the rear. As if the addition of rims aren't bad enough, the tires I want are unavailable, all I can get is those damn cooper tires, I have a bad history with that brand, they all come apart on me. I'm considering calling discount tire tomorrow and canceling my order, get the Milestar Street Steel tires elsewhere, I really need to get my van, gonna have to pry it away from dad I'm afraid, he seems to be attached to it, always an excuse for me to leave it with him, rain getting in, puddled up front, I need a look under the dash while someone shines a bright light in the vent at the windshield, I believe the rusty bitch is likely leaking there, but could be the windshield. At this point I almost want to sell the damn thing, no one will let me drive it.

I was able to install some 2x4s as support cross beams on the walls for the interior support. The van is progressing with the paint, so it’s looking up.

Non van related, I had a hell of a time with my F150 getting it started and running. Everything points back to bad gas and needing to drop the tanks. I finally did a compression test, just to be sure, and they’re all reading within the normal compression for a 35 year old truck. Saved me 2k on having to get a crate engine if it was toasted.


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

The ethanol gas goes bad fast, you got 6 months, you could be swamped with moisture, try alcohol to dry it up, I used to get the store bought 90% stuff from johnson and johnson.

I put some 255/70/15 RWL General Grabbers on my Express a few years ago. I love those tires.

I bought mine through Tirebuyer.com, and had them shipped to a local installer.
