Im 34 and this is the longest winter I can remember. We are only 6" away from the all time snowfall record. Supposed to get a storm tonight and tomorrow. They are saying up to 6" of snow but since I am next to the lake it will probably be double that.

All parts removed should be painted next week. Tub has to wait until we get a couple days above 70 degrees.

Wow. Imagining the Flop not red, that's difficult. But minivan grey does look nice.

Was night out tonight so I went out to sand down the tub. I just need to pick up some 320 and do one more pass. I also got some brackets cut out to make a double shear trackbar bracket at the axle end. It is single shear right now.
