I had the same separation on my 05 Safari and did the same thing you did. After about 2500 miles it is holding nicely.

One of our oak corners came off too. They had used finishing nails that were too short and I used slightly longer (about a quarter inch) nails and zapped them in with a nail gun and also glued it. It has stayed tight for many thousands of miles. If I had used longer nails, they would have gone into the fridge.

Me too.....I haven't been back to my native Michigan since I was 14. It was nice growing up there.....taking the family travel trailer up to Lake Huron. Gorgeous area. Lived in the north part up past Traverse City near Lake Michigan. Bucket list?

Hi, it must be nice to be young and energetic, like Vinnie. Besides supporting Bob, Lee Lee, and Boo-Boo [Dusty] he also has to pay for a new Dodge. I know they call it a Ram now, but to us old folk, it's still a Dodge. More random trips in our future; Full time is only a dream at this time.

Robert,

So.... are you really considering an oxymoron as a new TV?

Hi, not an oxymoron, but a F-150/250/350 with a 6.2L engine or possibly, eat my words, a diesel.

"If I ever buy a Diesel truck, it will be a real one like a Kenworth or Freightliner, Etc."

Could never understand Chryslers reasoning, Dodge or Ram?, it can't be both.

I love my Buick but I'm kinda a Ford guy. My first cars were Fords. I've never owned a mopar product. I have 2 Jeeps, CJ7 and a J20 but were built by AMC. We have our son's Jeep Compass while he is sailing the Indian Ocean with the Navy. But our daily driver is a '94 Camry. 50% of the Buick convertible's mileage is towing the Trade Wind. 455 cid is plenty of power!

Bob (of WNY),

I think they are using Ram now to emphasize aggression and the "hemi" engine. As I understand, every engine is a hemi and simply refers to the hemispherical area in the cylinder above the piston. I thought everybody has been doing that for more than a generation.

Neil,

By the way, I long ago had a CJ5 made during the AMC era and it is tied for worst vehicle I ever owned.

Bob (of Cal),

Sorry your Lincoln is wearing. How about a Sequoia with the 5.7 L.? Comfortable and big engine.

Gene

Hi, Neil. I owned one Mopar for a few minutes. It was a 60 Plymouth wagon. I was working at a Ford dealer and wanted to buy a nice 1959 Ford that they had in the bull pen. The manager said he would only sell me the 59 in a package deal. I had to buy a 60 Plymouth station wagon, a 60 Ford sedan, and the 1959 Custom 500 2 door Ford. I was willing to pay $200.00 for the 59 Ford alone, but when the manager told me that the package deal was $250.00 for all three, I bought them all. I sold the Plymouth to a friend for $50.00. I traded the 60 Ford to another friend for racing parts that would fit my 64 Falcon Sprint. And kept the Ford until a local needy family needed to buy a low cost dependable car that I really didn't need so I sold it to them for $200.00 , so that's my Chrysler owner experience. I bought a brand new 1978 CJ-5 with 304 V-8, stick trans, and manual hubs. i kept the Jeep for ten years; Somewhat of a record for me.

Hi, Vinnie. Sounds great, but I don't know how to drive a stick shift.

I used to tell the mechanics that at work when they asked me [shop foreman] to road test a car they were working on. I scared the H*** out of them when they went with me, in a hot rod Mustang. They never seen anyone, yet alone an old man, throw power shifts like I did. In the old days, my power shifts were what won the drag races for me. After all, all of my friend's Chevys had way more power than my 292 Ford.
