Busy day today!! The health issue over the last couple of weeks, Pneumonia, surprise 4th time in 5 years, cleaning out an old barn, moldy pigeon crap, rat poop and squirrel snot. Cure, ?? Steroid inhaler & steroid pills. I feel better (like HeHe, HaHaHa); chest x-ray was OK for tumors, no cancer signs. Considering a couple of years w/ US Navy in asbestos loaded engine rooms, fun from the 70’s & 80’s and 20+ years of nails, Yehaaaa!!
OT… I got something done today. I took off the original radiator support, cleaned; wire brushed and scrubbed with 3M Scotchbrite pad around the battery box area, primed the battery box area and cleaned the radiator support mounting areas. I also removed the driver’s side rocker panel cover, surprise, NO major rust!! I painted the horn mounting brackets and I started the installation of the WOLO horns for mock up, looks like the OE harness might be long enough. I’m getting ready to start the installation of the KOR radiator support! Holy steroids!! I did a bunch of ship. This is almost better than beer!! If it only tasted hoppy like Sierra Nevada “Torpedo” ……… I’ll post pics if I can figure out how to stop vibrating.
