What are you doing for the Memorial Day Weekend

I'll be home for the weekend but plan on doing a few things to the ole LY. On the plan for this weekend is:
  • Replace front brakes pads (Wagner Thermoquiets)
  • Replace all plugs (Autolite Plantinum)
  • Replace fuel filter (Purolator)
  • Replace air filter (Fram 2X)
  • Repair HWH auto leveling jack (Damaged front curb side jack harness connector that HWH sent me a replacement for free)
  • Reseal curb side bedroom window
  • Test new Dish Network Tailgator Auto-SAT antenna
I know it doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun, but I love working on the ole girl. Every day I work on her it looks and runs more like a treasure then the $2000 "dear hunter special" I bought it as.

Next phase will be the replacement of the rear brake pads, test tag axle brakes and then road test her.

Can't wait till I can give her a true shake down run. Plan on a local trip first and then... You name it!!!

Taking of the belly pan, and the inside panels so I can take the shell off the old girl.

I mowed lawn today, rehung a bird house for my wife. Tomorrow I'll polish on trailer if it doesn't rain. Monday my wife, my oldest son, and I, will make a road trip out of visiting graves of dead relatives.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Hi, we just got home from our first cruise ship cruise; About two weeks long. Today I watched Nascar, and tomorrow I watching the Indy 500. So, basically nothing!

Tearing the rear end out of my long term project Airstream...the 1975, it is about half way through it's 120 step rehab.

The interior has been out for a while, but I finally got down to the nitty gritty today it ain't purdy.

De-winterized and washed our airstream in prep for an upcoming 10 day trip in June. She looks beautiful now so I am excited to hit the road.

Also fixed a faucet in the house and ate some great Mexican food and had Margs for dinner. It's shaping up to be a great Memorial day so far!

We are headed out next weekend so we took the time to clean our AS this weekend for the first time.

Wash
Clay-Bar
1 Coat of Zaino Z-2
Topped off with Zaino CS

All in all it took the four of us 6 hours to do all of the above and I am pretty happy with the results. I've used the Zaino products for years but never their Z-CS(Clear Seal) product. It'll be interesting to see how well it holds up.

We will be up early watching the boy scouts put out all the flags on the grave sites... then a nice memorial service with the presentation of the wreaths.

We bring out all our jeeps, half tracks and command cars to pay our respects.

Never forget our fallen soldiers..
