Alright, if I get a chance I can take some pictures for you. Can't remember if the hood is good or not. I can probably get up there early Saturday morning and take some pics if you want to see whether it's worth it or not.

Sorry, been spending the weekend trying to install the new dishwasher. Lots to change to make it work from the roll-in apartment complex model that was previously in there from the 90s.

New Bosch dishwasher in! Holy crap it's quiet! Did the cabinet, then reinforced it because I should have done it differently. Currently bomb-proof. Just need to put a counter top on it. Think I'm going to make a set in counter top because I don't want to yank the dishwasher out again to screw in the counter top from the bottom. But if I make a cross piece in front, I should be able to screw in some wood supports on the underside of the counter top that will then drop it into the cabinet box frame and it's heavy enough, not like it's going anywhere.

Tested for leaks the previous night and ran a load this morning. Works great! Takes longer, but uses less water and electricity, and gets things lots cleaner. It cost as much as my first Datsun. ;)

I need a new dishwasher myself, I keep fixing the one I have myself, but the racks are falling apart now.

The wife wanted one. ;) We actually did look at all the different brands, it felt the sturdiest and had the best reviews for circuit boards not failing, etc, and it had a top rack for silverware that was easy to adjust. I have to say, it's a pretty damn nice unit.

LG gets good ratings for their refrigerators but gets poor ratings for parts availability, I ended up with a Whirlpool.
I need a dishwasher that slides in under the already existing counter top, I also need a stove, everything is falling apart, including me. :lol:

Good on you. I make my 10 year old help.

Jess, think long and hard before getting one of those refrigerators with the freezer drawer on the bottom. Even though mine is a 25.?? square foot refrigerator, I swear I ALWAYS have to move something to make room for whatever. If I'd known that ahead of time I would have gotten another side by side.

Got the air filters figured out and on. Testing this weekend, getting closer to cleaning up and putting the hood back on!

Bah, hardbody brakes took all day between yelling at the dogs and whatnot. Next weekend will be wagon for sure! Just as well, it's too freakin' cold to do tuning right now. 25 degrees this morning. It had been near 50s.

I am uploading a video to youtube currently. Now to go out and clean up the garage. Carbs are tuned. About a 12.8-13.3 AFR at idle of 950 rpms. Working well. Quite happy! Few things to figure out but good enough to go road test after it stops raining and snowing and making a freezing mess out of things.

Excited for you, man. I really like this car. Should be a fun driver.
