    Finally Got Myself A Tool Chest

    I just have the old school plastic socket organizers. I do need to get a bigger tool box for home though. https://www.amazon.com/Hansen-Global-Metric-Socket-Storage/dp/B001C6NL52/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1530623050&sr=8-5&keywords=socket+organizer
  4. Still trying to get you guys to show up here in Des Moines to the Goodguys Heartland Nationals that was last weekend. I know it is impossible to go to every show. Just disappointing to see all your competitors there. I'm sure you would not have any problem having any of us Iowa boys and girls volunteering time at the tent. 😁😁

    What am I doing wrong?

    Less is more when cleaning glass. I also use one towel for cleaning and changing sides often and then follow up with another dry towel to final buff.

    Why Do I Even Bother!

    Yep, went from a crappy winter to rain and when it is not raining its hot and humid. Needless to say my truck have been pretty neglected so far this year.😡

    Firearms Thread

    Picked up a new CC gun at the local gun show this past weekend. Could not beat the price and has been getting very good reviews since it's release at the first of the year. Need to get out and send some rounds down the pipe.

    For many years I have purchased gunsmith supplies and firearms parts and accessories from Brownells. I can have shipped to my door in a day or lucky enough they are less then an hour drive away. I cannot drive past the store/warehouse without stopping! Guess it would be the same if I was living in Colorado near Adams warehouse. http://www.brownells.com

    Waterless Wash

    I go with the diluted Rinseless. Great lubricants and the shine factor is awesome, so I don't have to go back over with Detail Spray. Makes the black paint on my truck pop! I also use it on the interior also, so doing the job of three products with one bottle!

    What did you do today?

    Great pictures! Worked on a few this size on back up generators when working for a Detroit Diesel distributor. I may have to show these images this week to my Soldiers when going over Precision Instruments in my Axle Rebuild Class.
