    Default How's Stay-At-Home Affected You?

    Some Quarantine Work.
    -- Engine painted Detroit Blue (Florida Detroit offers this as a far cheaper alternative to OEM paint. Painted tubes New Ford Gray.
    -- Repair alternator front seal leak.
    -- Replaced serpentine belt auto tensioner.
    -- Replaced fan clutch with a rebuilt.
    -- Replaced FilterMinder.
    -- Adjusted fan support assembly.
    -- Rewired battery charger and cleaned up and replaced some battery cables. I bet many have not seen too many H3's with the optional 8D chassis batteries.
    -- Moved air horns from roof to spare tire bay.

    The list goes on...

    Wow look at you. I think that there's going to be a bunch of Thanksgiving babies and there's going to be a bunch of divorces and there's going to be a whole bunch of cool stuff that's coming out of the garages. I'll bet you there's a whole bunch of guys that are just loving the time off.

    What's next flyboy going to check that tire pressure again or what? You should have like a remote monitor in your bedroom somewhere where you can see it 24/7 line current and loads too.

    Yer engine bay is beautiful for its age. The kind of thing u probably wish u heard more often about yourself eh?

    I got work to do. Later

    The only thing it has affected us is Sunday's! We have been working on coaches the whole time! Sunday is "family" day. We adopted our now 10 and 12 year old grandchildren and usually take Sunday to go to the theme parks, beach, boating etc. With the weather not ideal for boating, we have devoted the time to our home! I have done more yard work and window washing than I have in 40 years! Heck, I bought a zero turn Big Dog and a bunch of Stihl gas accessories and fired the landscaping crew and mow the grass at the shop my self..lol


    Gil, your coach looking great! We worked for a long time to get the right paint color that Florida Detroit is selling now!

    Donnie I’ve tried calling you a couple times. I’ll keep after it. I’m the weirdo wanting to explore feasibility and cost of retrofit 80’s quad sealed beams to 90’s XL currently with Excalibur’s.

    The stay at home order's been a really big deal for me.

    Thirty years ago immediately after I said I do, my new wife, a now retired molecular biologist and bio chemist, for HHMI announced my LAST MEAL would taste wonderful. I've been thru three dogs and now all the restaurants are closed. What to do?

    Thanks Joe. It is not that I disagree or agree... it just seems to get out of hand eventually. I appreciate your understanding. We are all friends here.
