What I’ve been doing every night this week.

Carport surgery on rusty bolts!

Whats that? None of you old bolts or nuts wants to work ever again? FINE I’ll replace every mother fucking last one ya! Said like Pulp Fiction:

What’s that, you’re a zerk fitting and can’t handle a lot of torque... I’ll snap you off!! (Okay, the first one only, now Kelsey is in charge of “snugging them up” and she hasn’t broken any...)

We worked into the night each night doing just a couple hours at most. So many stuck bolts, the cut off wheel made an appearance or ten as did a torch.

All that being said, I am really happy to have K by my side helping me out and keeping me from getting frustrated at every bolt (Read: crossthreading).

So, in reality, I am really happy to be able to do this stuff. I am getting rid of the old suspension on Tonto, replacing a pinion seal that seems to have a squirt gun mechanism attached to it that slings grease everywhere, replacing fuel filters and lastly replacing the window seals and felts...


From our happy home to yours, FUCK RUST!!

UPDATE 6:30PM. It’s DONE. It rides great, the pinion don’t leak, the Aux fuel tank flows and the suspension rides like the salmon of capistrano. (#SJC)
