Finally had a good warm afternoon so I charged the A/C in my 2wd shorty... It wasnt super hot but I took it on a test drive and had to turn it down, The Vintage air system is Awesome.....

Almost done, Just have to install the new front upper shock mounts, put on the deep trans pan, and of course have Mike put in the rear gears and Truetrac once he gets caught up with all his current projects...

I haven't forgot you James. Had a bit of a health issue over the past few weeks that's put me behind on work but I'm trying to get caught up.

Thanks.

Since room is at a premium in a camper, I made this swing-out BBQ mount for it. The Quick Fist just needs to keep it from swinging out while driving, no real load on it at all.

I also modified the BBQ to hook directly up to the onboard propane, no little green Coleman bottles. :)

Sorry for the poor pics, since it's parked close to a fence everything is tight.

Having to do some work on the motorhome. This is the 2nd leveling jack that has had the weld that joins the mounting bracket and ram break. You can see that there is outstanding penetration between the 2 parts. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

The system also uses an individual pump for each jack. This one has been giving me some intermittent problems. A new one costs about $600 and is on a 3 month back order. Fortunately I have a friend with 30+ years of hydraulic repair experience. Hopefully he can figure out what is wrong with it.

Yesterday was maintenance day for my Corvette--I drained its old coolant and refilled with new. While I was at it, I also performed a throttle body bypass, plus I replaced the stock 195^ thermostat with a 180^ one. All good stuff.

The C4 has a quirk where guys have overheating issues only to discover debris between the radiator and the condenser. My car always ran properly and the temperature was never a problem, so at first I wasn't gonna bother... but since both hoses were already removed from the radiator, why not take a quick peek anyway? Okay, fine. I pulled the top half cover, and when I looked down in the gap I could not believe what I saw--lots of leaves, some old dot matrix printouts, and I think an entire newspaper was also in there. Even worse, there was a *blanket* of fuzz stuck to the front of the radiator itself. Blowing compressed air through the fins didn't even phase it--I had to carefully brush it off with an old soft (garage) toothbrush. Considering all this, I am AMAZED the car was able to cool itself at all. Seriously.

This made a barely perceptible difference. Maybe. It probably looks like that again by now though, too.
