PostSubject: Long Weekend - What''s Planned?   Fri May 22, 2009 8:49 am

I have a ton of things to do this weekend (I have 4 days including today).

1) I have to open our pool. It's always painful because of the cleanup that has to be done prior. I hate sweeping and crap. ANd then there's the washing of the winter cover after it's pulled off. Ugh. Suspect

2) I also have a dry-well point in my yard and the electrical to the pump went out so I have to fix that and then we bought this fake rock to cover the well point so I have to prep the area for installing that.

3) I have to install low voltage lighting around the perimeter of the pool area. Shouldn't be too bad but I am married so I'm sure the spacing will be wrong. Mad

4) I have to move our mailbox. Get this. We have this HUGE stone mailbox. It's about 5 foot wide, 2.5 feet deep and 4.5 feet high => gigantic. Anyway, we had this mild earthquake a while back (like over a year) and it bounced the thing off its foundation and I haven't been able to figure out how to put it back. scratch I've decided to use a come-along and pull it back on. I just have to figure out what to hook the other end of the come-along onto for an anchor.

5) Finish the install on my Futura's rear end. Very Happy

6) Paint my 4 new calipers! afro

I wish I had a four day weekend!!! I have to work on monday.....

But this weekend I do have some plans for my Zephyr. Hopefully I'll be able to wire up my Marchal fog lights. The brackets came in yesterday. Other than that, I'll kick back and just relax.

I don't get a long weekend either. My days off are Monday and Tuesday, so I'll just get my normal days off. Fuckin' railroad.

I should be working on the car, but instead I've been cleaning up my '79 F-150. It hasn't been inspected since '5, and it's been sitting under a tree, so cleaning is interesting. Then, I'll figure out what's wrong with the brakes, and why it won't pump fuel, and get the bad grounds fixed, then maybe I'll run it again.

I'm thinking that I need to find the master cylinder with the biggest pistons. My brake pedal goes way too far, and it isn't hard enough to push. This truck has "slowing down" brakes, not "stopping" brakes.

Later,
Mike.

COMPLETE! cheers 1) I have to open our pool. It's always painful because of the cleanup that has to be done prior. I hate sweeping and crap. And then there's the washing of the winter cover after it's pulled off. Ugh. Suspect

COMPLETE! cheers 2) I also have a dry-well point in my yard and the electrical to the pump went out so I have to fix that and then we bought this fake rock to cover the well point so I have to prep the area for installing that.
>>>>>This took FOREVER to do. Egads. Two freaking days. It's never as easy as it should be. Required three trips to Lowes and of course, a LOT of cussing, clenching of teeth and kicking of dirt. But it looks so good now. If you need a fake rock for landscap;ing, look up DC Works on the inet. They do amazing work.

3) I have to install low voltage lighting around the perimeter of the pool area. Shouldn't be too bad but I am married so I'm sure the spacing will be wrong. Mad

4) I have to move our mailbox. Get this. We have this HUGE stone mailbox. It's about 5 foot wide, 2.5 feet deep and 4.5 feet high => gigantic.
