Also gives lots more front collision protection. I always worried about minibuses as your feet are inches away from collision damage.


You are definitely "first to the scene of the accident."

For the last week or so I've been trying to clear the Check Engine codes on our '98 Volvo S70 T5.

I dropped the gas tank, pulled the air pump to test (found a broken hose in the engine compartment)

And then found another broken hose that connects to the charcoal canister.

Just got the car smogged after waiting a day to get the computer to reset.

The smog tech said he was impressed how well the car ran and in what great shape it is for having 240,000 miles on it.


I laso have been changing T8 florescent bulbs to LED in my garage so I can see what I am working on. Today I will finish the side that the 914 is on.

Looks exactly like the color we chose! Caution though, couple of pretty warm days this Spring noted to always wear something on the feet. Bear feet = ouch!

I built a large deck at my other home and used TrekDeck on it and let me tell you my dogs would not walk on that in summer time. It gets really hot. Shoes or sandals are an absolute necessity. Looks good though and is very easy to maintain. I would just power wash it once a year and use the blower the rest of the year and it always looked new. Thank God no decks at our "new" home.

We are heavily treed and the deck is in shade almost all day. I was out on it today, Almost 90 degrees (about as hot as we get here) and I could have rested my face on the deck. I had already made sure it would work for me. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Railing will be black to help fade into the woods as we look out.

Here’s just part of the tree canopy.

Need to deal with some pre-logistics prior to rolling it onto the 4-post lift. Actually, it will see the undercarriage of a 914 - some day (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

why didn't I?? work first off, and second when I finally got home it was 101'F in the shade and hotter in the garage! instant sweat with out doing anything . I need to sort my speedo issue but that and the other car work will have to wait until saturnday morning. I really need to consider AC in the garage. Garage doors are insulated variety but 2 things here don't help , one is that the mid-day sun and late after noon bake the garage door. We have lots of trees but for 3-4 hours that side of the garage really gets the direct sunlight, and then there is the builder and previous owner I don't think insulated inside roof of the garage. there is no access to the 3+carage attic space even though it is attached to the house so I think my summer time project will be putting in a pull down access at least and get in there to spray foam that ceiling, then I need to decide if I am installing a lift and if so, then removing part of the ceiling in that section to open it up so the lift can go up higher... see what happens when I am NOT working on the 914, my thoughts wander into other areas... or maybe its this 100 degree heat getting to my brain.... or my 16 year old giving me fits... that will drive anyone crazy as well...…

have a great day, got to go to work and …… think about what I am not doing on thec car …….

Got the front brakes off the Tii, you have to love dry state cars ( this one was a long-term Nevada car ) has everything disassembled like it was just put on.

Nope, still haven't had the opportunity to work on the 914 ... or the 912 ... or ...

Yesterday, I got around to installing the window I built last month. It's got to come out again when I cut a real 2"x6" window sill for it, but just got tired of looking at the plywood nailed-up over the opening ... luckily it's just a handful of screws securing it right now, so it won't be a tough job to re-do it.

Already looks nice as-is (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

They're fun little pit/camp bikes. One of mine the cam chain slipped a tooth so's I gotta look into that. The other one (a 4-speed 'H' model) is all torn apart waiting a complete restoration with a color change from red to Candy Saphire Blue - my favorite color for them (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Finished the deck just before a tropical storm blew through. Well, not “finished” but the decking is down. I still need to install the railing and the stairs but I had to finish the decking before my wife would authorize more funding. Since I have never built a deck, she didn’t want me to buy a ton of materials and let it go unfinished. She’s happy with the way it turned out so more materials are on the way. We haven’t been at our house much over the last couple years so this is the summer of the house projects. Money is tight so my labor has to substitute for professional help.
The good thing is once the list of house projects are covered, I’m rehabbing my workshop. Interior, exterior and hvac.
