It was originally a $900 bass. They had it for so cheap because the pickups would cut in and out and were pretty noisy. It needed a new 9 volt battery. Cheap fix for a great bass. It quickly became my number one bass over both my American Fenders.

That is a nice bass. I play bass too. I have a Westone Matsumoto Thunder 1 and a Hartke Transporter 4x10 with 1x15. I got that thing for cheap because the guy kind of abused it and didn't really know what he had. I fixed it up and have been using it since. It worked great through the Zep Cover band times in college.

New water pump is rocking. Pretty happy that is over. I think I can hear a front hub bearing starting to squeak. Maybe it's just birds.

I bought my Jeep with the sheet metal torn out around the latch. It happened to the owner before the woman I bought it from, and he just had the latch tack-welded onto the torn sheet metal. It was no surprise when it tore again. So I bought a new door (stupid forest green looks wrong on my moss green ZJ) and put some washers under the lower hinge so it would line back up. Pain in the ***. That new door cost me $160 from the only yard in the area with a green 96-98 door. Now my inner panel is broken.

I'm thinking, if I can find a moss green door with grey interior, I'll just swap out for that one and have my damn door proper. The Jeep just looks weird with 2 shades of green.

We were across from eachother at a 4way stop, I was goin left, he was going straight but I stopped and he didn't. We met in the middle.

Got a pic on the wifes phone, will put up in a bit. No mechanicals hurt but lm sure labor alone will total it out.

I hate working so hard to see it ruined by another. I'll be in dark hole for awhile beating my self up for not paying more attention if anyone needs me.....
