Default new knee tomorrow

After putting it off for 5 years, gonna bite the bullet
and have knee replaced tomorrow.

Not much progress on the dodge.
new tires for front. went with 215/85R 16 instead of
17.5.

Got started on 4 link on rear.

Now for a minor delay for surgery.
I can only hope it is minor.

Default six weeks, new knee, cabin fever, a little progress

I got a little done on the Dodge yesterday.
Found a unique 1948 New Mexico license plate.
Block hugger headers so I can run the exhaust
out the rear.
100 amp single wire alternator
Edelbrock carburator
new plugs and wire set.

I think I like the look of the old stock air cleaner
over the new edelbrock cleaner. What do you think?

The engine is something I can work on sitting on
a stool. The Knee is doing good but is rather stiff
and I can't stand very long.


It's not much but at least I'm out of the house.
I'll probably never watch TV again!!!!

Thanks Skull.
I'm not at it hard and heavy but easing into it.
It's all progress and its all got to be done.

I spent the last couple of weeks making a wiring harness.
Didn't save any money but it kept me busy for a while.

My sentiments exactly.

Hey DR good to hear from you.
The poor guys wife totally flipped out on him.
Everything is tied up in the court system.
I can't even get the pass side door that I paid for.
Life can get ugly sometimes when divorce is involved.

Been watching your progress, looking great!
