I post, or at least want to post, in the what did you do to your truck today thread. However, it's usually more something I did WITH my truck, I don't do that much TO it. She's great how she sits.

So, I thought I'd just finally create a thread for that!

The past few days I've been working on getting a privacy fence up in our back yard. I scored some discolored cedar tone 1x6x6 dog ear 6x8 panels for our cull price of $10 each. They are treated our "cedartone" treatment but had some black sludge settle on much of it. The junk pressure washes off but it was too labor intensive for us to go through the packs and wash each side.

Panels are around 100# each with a bundle of 30 right on the nose of the trailer. There are also 30 4x4x8s on the back and a bundle of about 120 2x3x8 backer boards. For having 3000 lbs in the nose of the trailer I don't think ol' Sally is sitting too badly!

Also pictured is my pupper help.

No pictures ... 200 mile road trip with the trailer to pick up oysters in one location, and then bring luggage back from a school camping trip. Ran like a champ through the hills, in the rain and still managed 15.2 mpg during the drive.

I turned wrenches on it all day. Been hearing a knock. Thought hopefully it was the flywheel but after dropping the oil pan, I find metal flakes in bottom of the pan.

Wrong thread Chrispy

This should be posted in the "What p&$ssed you off today" thread. (There really is one)

But I get the feeling you are being a good sport about it. So thumbs up to you.

Yea, mine asks me everytime I walk by if it's tow-time soon?
It's not getting its legs stretched much lately.

I hauled my laundry to the sweet lady that does an amazing job!

Since my laundry won't fit in the Mazdarati, the truck got a nice cold-start this morning. Lol

Then it got washed and hauled me into the city. Got a premiere parking spot and it gets to enjoy the limelight on a perfect day.

I had to go out for a drive last night. Embarrassed a little 370z doing a pull from 70-130 and then found a trial that lead down to the river close to my house. It was pretty muddy and rutted up, but had my curiosity.

Now I gotta hit the car wash, the pics don’t show how muddy it is.

Because their is soooooo much we can do these days-lol
Walk out to the garage; tinker with the 450R, clean the air filter & tighten all clamps on the Boost> Next day repeat ( maybe mix in a wash job etc..) & pretty much everyday untill this virus thing is handled!?
