Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Time for another update! I've been keeping busy, trying to make as much progress as possible before it gets too cold to have any motivation... would like to be done by the end of the year, but we'll see about that. I spend almost every evening after work and every Saturday working on it these days. ...

Re: WCCC Photo Contest 2018

I just posted a gallery of highlights here (you can view it even if you don't have a facebook account)

I can also say that I've sent the final calendar file to the print shop, so hopefully it won't be too long before it's in print, and the winners will be revealed!

Re: Getting older, getting dumber...

Once down don't forget to make sure the lug nuts are tight too! :lol: Yeah, I made that mistake once on my Opel, the first time I drove it after restoring it.

Re: REAR BRAKES WON'T BLEED

Here's a tip for ya, not sure if it's too late at this point. But when you start messing around with brake fluid pressure and bleeding, it's easy to throw off the alignment of the shuttle in your distribution block, which triggers your BRAKES warning light. And getting that re-aligned isn't fun. So ...
