Got my stuff in to fix my antenna wire, even came with new hardware and fender push clips. 

All nice and installed. 

 

Also got a bumper from a buddy who came down for Mopar Nats. It doesnt have plate holes so that takes care of something that has been really bothering me.

Super busy last 4 days...... 

Lets start with having to jack up the house to fix some issues we decided to fix now not later..... Had a couple broken block due to not having a footer under the wall in that section..... 

NOS blocks were filled with concrete and laied. 

 

Then Sunday when all that was drying we went and picked up a free mower on Craiglist that donated a seat and wheel weights tires and snow plow and a seat to the MRS. dad. 

 



 

Got the wheels weights moved to my tractor and went to bed. 

Monday evening I found out her dad bought a Sears ST 16 from a guy down the street and if I picked it up I could have the roller and snow blower off of it.... DEAL

Scored this little guy for $10 unopened on ebay. 

 

Also took a load of stuff to the new house to load into the shed. 



One of the neighbor kids goes " Thats super cool, how old is it" 
I said " It was built in 1971 so 47 years old" 
He goes "Does it run good?"
I fire it up and drive it off the trailer. 

We talked for a little while about lawn mowers and how he wants a riding mower to race.

Anyone guess what time it is? 


Its time to update the Ol trailer. The expanded metal needed some more reinforcements and we wanted to add a couple of things. 

Floor reinforcements in and painted, what caused this was big heavy items setting in one spot. 


Also added chain to the back of it so we can lay the gate back some to carry boards or longer than 8ft items.

Well E36 M3 has been wild this weekend. 

All this body work was preparing for Motor Vice, and boy did it go well! 

I had to wake up at the butt crack of dawn to go to the junkyard since I needed a fender liner, then had to balance the hot boy wheels and wash it before we went. It was a long morning for me. 



Car didnt win any awards due to me and the Mrs. having to be judges, but it was a awesome day, cant wait to do it again! 


Me and a couple of my good friends went to my bosses house after the show to go swimming.
