A friend of my Dad's has multiple motorcycles, and his general rule is they always have to be red. His wife doesn't pay close enough attention to specific bikes, but she notices if he gets a different colored one. So, sell a red one, buy a red one, wife never knows.I call it a “never sell” , problem is I have a few “never sells” and the wife does not like that term one bit, if fact, if I come up with another... the shit will hit the fan
If you prefer your motorbikes in the United Colors of Beneton... a rental house with an accessory garage always makes for a great refuge. When you bring bikes home from that garage... you can truthfully say "Ive had this bike for a long time"...lolA friend of my Dad's has multiple motorcycles, and his general rule is they always have to be red.

Bravadas tended not to tip over like Explorers of that era as well. Then Ford tried to blame it on tires....their fix was to severely underinflate them...Found On Road Dead.
Wretch get with the program...Haven’t you heard? Terry_Schiavo has no hair on his body, only that mop on his head...at least that’s what CZLoco was mumbling about the last time I saw him...Green is faster than Red but, you have to live with a curse running green paint on your racing mobile.
You don't have a hair on your ass if you don't paint them bass boat green to thumb your nose at the curse.
Last tally put me just over $17g. I'm having withdrawals though. I haven't spent any money on it in a while now. I have about a grand set aside in my "Money Pit" jar for either new tires or a winch. I'm setting aside a couple hundred bucks each paycheck and putting it in for future "maintenance and upgrades".I don't know, I haven't gotten the bills yet. I'll be happy if the entire project isn't much over $25k.
Where are you at on yours?
Eddie.. may I call you Eddie? I say this with all due respect, but I think you may have some OCD issues my friend. Mayhaps your screen name should be changed to "Anal Retentive"? I kid, I kid!Paycheck vs budget, I'm positive I'm in the lead.
De-greased/cleaned my oil pan a couple nights ago.
I'm thinking of hitting both tranny & engine oil pans with my outdoors bead-blaster.
Then paint them with VHT FlameProof paint, which is said to be able to slightly reflect heat.
I've read though that you shouldn't bead blast oil pans because the media is difficult to remove.
Don't really understand why that would be. The inside of the pan is nice and smooth.
I'd think a rag would wipe out any residue easily.
I won't be painting the inside, but I was thinking of blasting it also, just to make it look like new again.
For vanity sake. Maybe I'll skip that though.
Yeah, you're getting up there. You might even pull the lead soon, but I think Snail's Work Truck maybe in the lead for a while. No qualifiers (salary vs. budget, etc.), just straight cash spent. I will say though, that of all the money pits on this board currently under construction, I'd prefer to have one like yours. Sadly, I have even less time than money.I think I'm at about $13,500(?) for the Bronco.
That's the price + tax of the Bronco plus all the maintenance, replacing parts, full exhaust/intake and new long block engine.
It's been a most expensive last 7-10 months.
The original engine was supposed to last a couple more years but the original owners blew it and apparently put stop-leak in which then failed on me.
I have always been annoyed at the loud sound of the AC or heater on full blast.Agreed with the radiant barrier insulation from home depot.
I wrapped all of my hvac ducting with it while the dash was out.
Blower motor is almost silent now.
Hey now, I have no visible means of support, other than dismantling business assets and selling the parts.
Anyone interested in a refurbished commercial fish boat?
