No time to procrastinate - less than 24 hours after driving the car, the engine is out (with a lot of help from @awtaulbert). I’ve never been happy with the clutch, so I’m taking care of it, and adding a PCV system to the engine while the intake is off.

A great way to spend an anniversary - a day out in the car, catching up with friends, and a good drive up Woodward.

Headlights aren’t usually the first thing to start with, but it’s a start nonetheless. I wanted to get the 682-Js a little lower than some aftermarket headlight stands offered, so I reworked the headlight buckets by moving the mounting plate to the inside, but also moved it higher (moving the bucket down). I also pulled the headlights forward slightly too. Overall, the headlights are 2 1/8” lower than the stock position.

Anyone need a Model A pickup bed? I’ve got this one that’s a good starter for someone who can straighten up a few areas. Asking $500.

Since returning from Austin, I’ve been remodeling my master bathroom. I wanted a different way to organize the shower products (instead of a wall pocket or a shower caddy), so I modeled this basket design in CAD. Each piece is a slightly different size, tapering out as it goes upward. @wicked_welding got the pieces cut from 0.120” 316, and I’m getting them assembled and welded today. They bolt through the wall via a tapped bracket.

Out and about this morning before working on the house #tonyalreadydidit

The Clarkston Mills (in downtown Clarkston) dates back to 1833 when Holcomb built a saw mill on the property (powered by the Clinton River). Years later, Henry Ford acquired the property in the early 1940s, turning it into a hydroelectric plant (though it often consumed more power than it produced). The facade has changed throughout the years, but the chimney still remains constant. Side note - I haven’t had the truck out for nearly a year, so it was due to a cleaning and a few miles.

Dinner downtown tonight

This one is patiently waiting, but I have to get through a bathroom remodel, followed by some maintenance on the roadster, before I can start on it.

3,000 miles of grime cleaned off

Pulled back into the garage at home not too long ago, with 3,248 more miles on the odometer than when we left. Today’s last run saw a little snow, ice on the windshield, and a left front shock lost dampening....it feels good to be home.... #lonestarroundup #lonestarroundup2018
