  4. I was reminded about one of the limitations of the foam brush when I had to do the underside of the utility trailer top rail a few days ago. Since I'm still working outside in between chores and passing thunderstorms (and a few EF2s) , I have split the painting into sections so that I'm doing surface prep - prime - top coat in manageable sections. Working on the bulkhead rails, the foam brush worked as usual but when I went overhead, the paint saturated the foam before flowing onto the frame...that kinda got messy as I was working top to bottom, left to right, and the foam was falling off of the handle right as I was finishing up the 1st coat. So on subsequent coats, I opted to do the overhead areas next to last, and the foam brush did not fill up so hunter green didn't run all over my fingers as before. With paint now in the brush, I could put a coat on the flat areas quickly, squeezing out the foam to put the paint on the work area and not wasting a drop.
  5. The front, top and passenger side look like it's a good fixer upper...hope there aren't any unpleasant surprises

  7. Fram filters...oil, fuel, transmission...had problems with fuel filters leaking on lawn equipment back in the late 90s, then read about oil filters that were basically shoebox cardboard shoved in a can...bought a low mileage '90 Ramcharger at a discount cuz I haggled the dealer on transmission issues, pulled the pan on that Torq-Flite and there's a Fram filter...replaced with Wix and made the adjustments as required and that old buggy came alive, as OD magically reappeared...how they are still in business boggles the mind

  9. I bought my first Innova handheld OBD2 scanner back in 2009 to work on several vehicles that were pre-2006...it still works, but newer vehicles require activating the ABS pump to bleed brakes and that scanner did not have that function and could not be upgraded...kinda like buying a laptop, after so many years the OS and/or features are obsolete. I bought a second Innova handheld scanner 2yrs ago and it has paid for itself, just like the 1st, as I do almost all of my diag.work and wrench turning for myself and friends who offer interesting trades. I opted not to do the bluetoof OBD2 app only because I work on multiple vehicles and I try to minimize wear on my phone cuz hey ima butterfingers and them phones are expensive. The other advantage is that I can have a scanner running diag while doing research on my phone, so I have 2 separate screens running on 2 power sources which helps save phone battery on long days. If only working on 1 vehicle, the app is competitive with its active software updates but I wonder about software security 🤔 If working on a 10+ yr old vehicle with ABS, be prepared for possible fun if the brake fluid was not flushed every 2-3 yrs 👀 additional information - 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 brake repair odyssey

  13. sometimes when an exorbitant executive compensation package comes to light, a researcher compiles a list of things that $$$ could have paid for, and it makes me wonder how much better we would all be if the haves shared some more scraps with the have nots...things like a cross hair grille on a new Dodge Ram instead of the Tundra lookalike half-baked placeholder them buggies have been sporting lately
