Now comes the next fun phase: discovery.

the fun begins.

the entertaiment center is now gettinga new stereo. the store owner said he could install the new stereo and cb in place of the old audiovox and 8 track player and recover the center to look like new.

the curtains were the same color as the sofa and the carpeting.
so there are in the basement and new curtains are being made, the cornice board recovered and new blinds are being installed
now there will be color .

next comes a tuneup and from the information here that should be interesting all by itself.

then not knowing when the tires were installed they will get inspected along with the disc brakes.

I am getting infomaton on the A&E levelers, that do not work
to troubleshot them

I think I will always have something to do on Saturday

One project after another, but the end results have so far been positive.
I have my next idea lined up, and then something new comes up and moves to the head of the line.
This weekend it's the new (#2) starter and heat wrap. Hopefully the last one of those for a long time. Also heat wrap for my wires to the starter.
Then bathroom flooring, and maybe the start of redoing or stripping off the grey lower outside paint. Also the last wire on my tow car wiring set up.
Now let's see, what else???? Oh yeah - more Vulkem, an a/c shroud replacement.............
repaint the window frames, new fuzzy channels, outer window seals.............
Thank God for Saturday and Sunday!

well I guess the only solution is early retirement.
that way one could travel during the week and work on the project list on the weekends. that way you get to have your fixes in various states.....whew, that was really bad
