Finally got around to flush and fill on the radiator. Also replaced the radiator hoses and clamps. Heater tees and all associated hoses and clamps. I know the breeze clamps are over kill, but I like them and I already had some on hand. I used some new hose clamp pliers to remove the old stuff, still a PITA to get it all off. The heater tees looked like they had been replaced at some point. I felt better doing this job before my weekend long drive and primitive camping trip with my 12 year old son.

Nice! Interested to know your caster and lift specs.

Today, I greased all my door hinges. Doors swing significantly easier now.

I am so pleased. I was walking back to my cruiser today and saw a black tube hanging down. I was mildly concerned. So when I got to my clean driveway, I crawled underneath and discovered that the air hose for the air bags had been melted by the exhaust. I thought the bag had popped, but the system now holds air after I spliced the tubing. wooo hooo

Front drivers brake line burst while driving. Luckily I was close to my parents house. Went and bought a replacement from autozone and bent it up. Ugly but works.

Found a parking garage that was just a little too short. Crunched my rack a bit under a low spot. Oops. Luckily no real damage other than a gouge.

Might just go to one of those high school kids car wash fund raiser thing, might get swirls but at least the bugs will be off.

What did you use @hoser?

The "oil" (WD-40) approach just doesn't last very long, especially through the winters around here.

Gees how long is that kayak? I'm a noob and wants to get into it, i got a Pelican Trailblazer 100, it's a 10 footer, doesn't really track that straight.
It's almost 17'. It's a sea kayak, has dry storage fore and aft of the cockpit. I haven't done a trip out of it since 2006, so it def required some creative packing, meals, etc.

Get a longer, narrower kayak if tracking straighter and going faster with less effort is important to you. :)

So i've heard, but where I live i have to park the car like some distance away from the drop in point, not sure if i can carry the 17 footer on my shoulder like i can with the 10' now lol

About a month ago I installed the KISS drawer system. I’m really impressed with the fit and quality. Also, customer service from the guys at LandShark is top notch. I wish they were a little more sturdy. Seems like they “wobble” around a bit. Thinking about putting a rubber “grommet” around the edges... might help.

This past week I decided to the front wheel bearings and all that jazz. Ended up replacing them and the lower ball joints. Ordered the kit and a ball joint from the guys at Cruiser Outfitters. Another great company with excellent customer service.
FYI, AutoZone has 555 ball joints, now I’m not sure if these are OEM but they are the same ones that Kurt has and they’re made in Japan. Seem to be excellent quality.
