That's a GREAT price........Very tired of getting RIPPED OFF for work in CA that costs 1/3 the price in other parts of the country. Same seats - same work 3 times more and I shopped around.
All 4 of my seats and the headliner - $3200 and I didn't even get dinner

you should see all the taxes the city’s, counties and state in California throw on business is crazy, the environmental laws In California alone were written to fleece the business/public.

Good example went buy roughstuff in Lomis and noticed Dan had taken down his business signs, when asked why, the city wanted over 1000$ per year per sign... as a consumer you pay that.. how any business in California stays in operating is beyond me..

moved out 10 years ago not going back, I kinda like keeping what I earn...

Finished the footers and started framing the garage for my two 75’s.

Tracking the Denver and Rio Grande Western's abandoned Santa Fe Branch with the 40 and a mountain bike.

And, experimenting with a Man-A-Fre intake plate as an intake reinforcement.

Also, installed a 159 primary main jet replacing the stock 144 to address some of the O2 sensor's reported lean reading at mid to heavy throttle.

Within a few miles of here (~80 years ago):

Here is a bit of what I have found closer to White Rock Canyon.

Not on that trip, but earlier, I found a lock-washer that was like 5/16" thick.

I believe that this is a threaded-rivet(?), and one of those peel-back sardine cans.

Artifacts above were left in place.

It is kinda fascinating, because the narrow-gauge line was constructed without ballast, that and the demolition, the scrapping of it just months before Pearl Harbor, the Manhattan Project in Los Alamos, etc.

I found this artifact while " scavenger-ing " deep within a Closed and Abandon Toyota Dealership new car show room in Pennsylvania just

outside Harrisburg behind a old rotten desk it’s a solid part of my back story and what I did while driving my land cruiser that week and

many weeks back in the late 1990,s there were indeed some old small nos parts in the old warehouse in a junk pile I still have in my

personal collection :cool:
