    Thanks for the compliment !! ... Did a photo shoot of a young lady Crew Chief this week, this past Monday. She wished it with her Jeep Wrangler, which she purchased new this past June. A number of becoming images of her with her new, beloved Jeep, and her favorite helicopter that she crew chiefs on - each image uniquely different from the others. I'm believing she'll be pleased.

    Replaced the TRE that started to spin before allowing the castle nut to seat properly.

    @Skydog Last time I was on a chopper it was piloted by a female, my dumb ass Lt. made some remark....long story short he ended up puking in his hat. She gave us one helluva ride! Nice pics man.

    Started to search why water is getting into the oil by pulling the head.

    LOL !!... well, it was NOT along the same lines of one of my boudoir photo shoots... :)

    Three more, as merely an example of what we did between herself, her new Jeep, and her beloved UH-1 Huey (NOTE : the colorful trailer-wrap, on the blurred-out trailers, seen in the second image, are also of my work. Both of the two trailers, parked back-to-back, happened to have been there on that same ramp that same day) :

    Two things; I found out I qualify for "Antique Auto" tags which reduce my tax value on the 1970 FJ40 down to $500 thus saving me money for taxes. More money in my pocket and less for the govt to throw away. Maybe people will read the tag and no get so impatient with me for not traveling as fast as they usually do.

    Don't remember where I first saw these but I ordered a pair from BH3D.com and they arrived today. They attach to the body with tape and the tape has been let into the back of the medallion just enough so it looks like the medallions are sitting flush with the body. They appear to be very well made although one has some paint scratches that unless viewed from up close and personal just aren't enough to be seen or bothered with. They are now installed on the fresh air kick vents.

    Well nothing seems to be getting current (and it's not a battery problem; I even tried the battery out of my DD Tacoma) so it looks like it's time for some long overdue wiring diagnosis...*sigh*

    @Vossie Is that your home in the second photo? Makes my 6 room mansion look inadequate.

    Added a fan shroud to my Patina project and got the door rebuild back together.

    20170217_153004.jpg 20170217_123648.jpg With a little help from my daughther (b/c she says the 40 is already hers) we installed a dual diaphragm disc brake booster from @cityracer, and a new master cylinder. Got the brakes bled, and back on the road.
