    NOS door installation

    I went and found a better stiffer, denser closed cell foam rubber for my doors the new hollow stuff is crap it doesn't hold the doors from rattling in the jambs. I used this stuff and it only puts a small indentation in it and that's enough to hold the door rigid and seal out the weather. I went and sourced all my window felt for the tracks ang cat whisker from ebay stores works better and half the cost.

    HELP - Illinois Medical Card

    It really sucks a weekend warrior can drag his 40 foot camper trailer anywhere he wants no special license or medical card but pull a trailer for a living and things change quickly.

    Wasted Management

    They used a lot of them around here years ago but they are all gone now. The company is just a shadow of what it was around these parts they drive around in rusty junk now.

    1974 RS700L parade truck

    Im going to retire and have to downsize right now where I live I don't have a place to park it indoors and hate to see it sit outside to let the weather ruin it. My insurance company wants to raise the rates because of the liability of people riding in the back too. I will turn it back into a semi tractor if it doesn't sell and just do truck shows with it. I thought I would just put it out there to test the waters and see if there is a good market for it Im not eager to sell it but will if the right person and cash come along.
