had a thought the for a thread the other day: what have done to your shop recently.

this might be a two-pher because made it more crowded with more parts from my RC. link to follow.

Never enough room in a shop is there? A garage is good therapy for the soul. I work out of a tiny little one hole crapper of a garage, thing's packed to the gills. Just spent four months holed up in it so I added a spare 38" TV, a good sound system hooked to it and it's Miracast to my phone. I'll put a good concert or some such on and tinker all night.

Seems like you're having fun there. Perfect Man cave!
You inspired me to redo mine (y) ;)

When I first bought my place I was pretty well set - 3 car garage, 3 vehicles. Not sure that lasted a full year. These days I'm mostly happy I can get one in to the work bay and bonus joy for having to move less than 3 others to do it. Currently in the middle of planning a 24x40 detached and wondering how long that will hold me.

helped do the brakes on a dana 60. really not a fan of them but it definitely needed to be done. the wheel cylinder had a slow leak. the crappy part is the wheel cylinder was likely installed less than 5 years ago. the other side was dry but had some broken parts floating around inside and tore up the shoes. also helped change power steering pump and lines. it actually went pretty smoothly which was nice. i remember the 1st diesel one we did years ago was a nightmare.

yes it was. it was kind of expected to find something like that. when brakes start feeling funny and brake fluid slowly start disappearing and not landing on the ground it has to be going somewhere lol.

fixed the tailgate on the well used '93 3/4 , it has the cracking steel "problem" and had the lower "pin" welded on the "box" that broke away a chunk fell out pin and all , so gate was held only on one side . made plate welded pipe coupling to it bolted it all to truck . THEN took the latches and the release handle out freed them from the rust ....... well it now works properly again .

It’s kinda nice driving it rather than working on it. But now that I’ve put 250 miles on it I’m going to run Thermocure thru the coolant system as there is lots of tiny rust particles circulating. Probably going to let it sit with it in the block for 7-10 days.

I got the cooling system drained, flushed multiple times, drained again, then filled with distilled water and thermocure. I'm going to give it a week or two and see what comes out.

Love distilled water.
Everybody needs to run this product.
