Wonderful pic Jack! I love the snow but only because it goes away fast around here! My bride and I drove to Destiny today to make sure she is ok. Total guess of 8+ inches on her! Yikes! The marina is beautiful with all the snow. Destiny is a toasty 43 degrees inside! We use an oil heater to supplement the electric forced air and it works great!
1 oil, two electric forced air and two dehumidifiers keep her in good order! We use the same oil heater in the rv plus propain heat and all stays a toasty 50 degrees to prevent frozen pipes.

Today I installed a JBL GTR-140 amp that is capable of blue tooth! The ole Rockford Fosgate amp made so much noise on startup that the new amp seems awesome! Soon the vette will be road worthy! So many projects and so little time!

Got some pics with hummers and snow in the Photography section in off topics. It hit 17 degrees with 7.5" of snow Saturday night before midnight.

BTW, how did the sidepipes turn out?

Side pipes are great! Sounds similar to before but louder and deeper.
I have yet to driver her and see what it is like.

I have to regasket my rack and pinion.

Enyone here ever do that or should I just take it in and get it done?

Do you mean seals? Most of the time the manufacture will do that for you or even replace it for free. They did that on my 73..sent me a brand new rack no charge.

We are back!
Diane and I took a week off from work and snow and headed out to Hawaii!

7 Days on the island of Hawaii was a blast but not enough time! We literally went from top to bottom and drove completely around the island in two days!

We did a night snorkel with the Manta Rays which was freakin awesome!
Diane and our daughter swam with the dolphins!
We went to the top of Mt Kilauea!
We stayed at the Hilton on the dry side of the island and drove to Akaka Falls in heavy rain and fog!
We visited the rain forest gardens!
We even visited the town of Kona twice! LOL!
While sitting and eating dinner on our last day we could see the Maunakea observatory! WOW! LETS GO! Oh, wait, they close before we could get there. They have limited visitation at this time. Oh well.


Either way it was a blast! No pun intended with the volcanoes.

While away we get the ping on our cell phones that there was motion at our front door at home. Yep, with no email or warning my new rack and pinion arrived! Had to call a neighbor and have them put it in the house for me!

Today you ask? Yes, back to work.
Doh!

Saturday I had some time so I finished the install of the steering.

I decided to go ahead and drive her down to the neighbors house and see how well she does.  Down and back a block at little more than an idle! Whoo hoo!

Second time was a little more throttle and I blew the fan belt off! Doh!
Sunday evening I had time so I got and installed a new belt! Ah! I can clearly see the air compressor is off slightly! I'll adjust that tonight!

A great way to get it spot on is use a laser light
