Feeding My Airstream

WHILE THE FORUM HAS BEEN A_U. I HAVE BEEN WORKING MY FINGERS TO THE BONE. THE WEENIE GOT A NEW RADIATOR $300 IT WAS A CUSTOM JOB . BOUGHT A RADIATOR THAT HAD THE WRONG END CAPS (TANKS) AND HAD THE OLD TANKS INSTALLED ON THE NEW RADIATOR. I DONT KNOW WHAT THE GUY PAYED FOR THE NEW RADIATOR . I DO KNOW HE WORKED FOR THREE HOURS CHANGING OUT THE TANKS. AND I WATCHED. MAN COULD THIS GUY SOLDER. I DONT THINK HE MADE A LOT ON THAT JOB.
REPLACED THE WATER PUMP AND LATER FOUND THAT THE HEATER HOSE WAS WHERE THE LEAK WAS COMING FROM. SORRY AUTO ZONE I THOUGHT THE PUMP WAS BAD.
NEW BELTS AND HOSES.
IN THE PROCESS THE AC BRACKET (ALUMINUM) BROKE. THIS BRAKET HAS BEEN WELDED A COUPLE OF TIMES. AND SOME OF THE WELDS ARE BRITTLE. I ORDERED A NEW ONE AND WAS SUPPRISED THAT IT WAS AVAILABLE $135 . GOT IT TODAY AND IT RAINED ALL DAY . AND A TORNADO WENT A MILE NORTH OF ME.
PUT UP A TENT AFTER THE WEATHER PASSED AND WENT TO WORK . JUST ABOUT READY TO PUT THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON IT .
THIS MONTH HAS BEEN A BIT ON THE EXPENSIVE SIDE ABOUT $800 IN PARTS AND $10 FOR HAND CLEANER. AND A LOT OF SWEAT. LOT OF BUSTED KNUCKELS.
HATE TO THINK WHAT MY BUD AT THE RV PLACE WOULD HAVE CHARGED ME.
PETER:
I THINK THIS DOG IS READY FOR THE TRIP. WILL BE DEPARTING FOR DALLAS NEXT SUNDAY AND ON TO BELTON MONDAY PM. IM READY FOR SOME R&R. SEND ME A E-MAIL SO I CAN GET YOUR ADDRESS. NOT A -PM, A PM MIGHT NOT BE AVAILABLE. WILL HAVE THE WIFES WIRELESS FOR INTERNET. MY ADDRESS IS

yeeha! Remember that Texas requires a passport. It does seem like another country
Shine them boots, and hit the pedal to the aluminum.
