The boat salon has been turned into my workshop. It’s not a pretty sight, wife won’t even go there until things are back in order. I need a garage again!!

I miss having a garage. I hate parking on a muddy hill by the street lmfao! :p

It always takes me a good minute to either park or leave from that really narrow spot. :p

I need a bigger garage. My house is older so its a tight 2 car but i can't complain. Lucky enough to have one. I still find it odd down here that nobody really parks in their garages they just pack em full of shit and park in the drive

I am going to clean my car's engine bay a bit. It is really grimly. Not a car guy but going to try and identify certain things that need protecting from water (alternator). No power washer, just some sprays and cloths and brushes. If successful, then do the wife's car also. Enjoy the weekend

Finished doing 3 engine bays that have never been cleaned:
2018 stinger from new 72,000 km
2012 explorer since 2013 228,000 km
1998 vw cabrio from new 168,000 miles

Those last 2 were FILTHY & GRIMEY.
All 3 look much better.

Filled the first 2 with full thanks of Costco gas first thing this morning 6.30 am.

Switching to summers once I am sure mornings are not below 7 degrees celsius (44 F) - probably mid to late April.

Going to relax with a glass of wine and watch the F1 qualifying. It's been very boring the last few seasons: Mercedes and Hamilton = BORING

Your final statement is why i drifted away form F1. I got to see Schumacher race in Indy which was very cool. Hamilton is very good no doubt. Once Vettel jumped out of Redbull it all seemed to get very stale to me. Just my opinion...

Nothing special. Used a brand called Silver Wax engine cleaner and finisher. Both were on sale. Seemed to cut through the oily grit mixture quite nicely.

Haha! Nothing wrong with that! :) :)

I had a buddy in Maryland and another in New Jersey who had that. If it works it works as I would say! :thumbup::thumbup:

I have to admit changing sno-thrower belts in 50 degree weather is better than freezing.....I managed both belts for a 824 toro...been over 30 years, signs of slippage and of course they were both cracked....got them from an industrial outlet , (farthest thing from lawn an garden) lol....eyeballed 'em on the spot....installed harder than taking off btw......course I expected that. but they are done with fresh fuel lines and filter.....did the same to the garden tractor, which was cannibalized when the first snow hit....guts went to the sno-thrower...lol...lawn limed, solar lights displayed.....I'm done.
