    Toyota timing chain crapped out on me so I had to drive the Mav to work. I was easily the most defensive driver out there this morning :nailbiting:

    Monday and Tuesday were good days....After being laid off a month and a half ago and getting some free time on my hands for the first time in 2 years....I pulled my baby out of the garage and FINALLY pulled my heater motor to figure out why my wheel was dragging....simple mistake that I got fixed and all put back together....And just admired the beauty of my Car. Might even make a trip to the coast in her tomorrow! (though last time i did that i ended up with a dent in my door due to ignorant people not paying attention and slamming their doors open at the hotel).

    We'll take all you can send! Snow pack in Washington State is WAY low, one small area is at 60% and the rest well below 40%. We'll be rationing water for irrigation this year for sure.

    Today I worked on my hood a little more, straightened the flanges so I could get in there and remove the rust and get the inner structure in easier. I'll need to replace a small section at the front but I have that from the hood that donated the frame work.
