I updated the bones of the Scout blog to the same framework I use for Idiotking this afternoon, mainly because this one isn’t mobile responsive and I’ve not touched it in two years. I’ll keep working with the look and tweak things slowly over the next few weeks. Mainly, I’ve got to go back and relink photos to show up larger (they’ll resize on the fly like they do at IK).
Sobering, to say the least. This truck is the spitting image of Chewbacca.
My good friend Brian H. tells me he’d like to move the spare engine he’s got out of his shed, and asks me if I’d like it. Who am I to say no?
…Now I just need to figure out how to get it onto a truck and over here. I wonder if the wooden floor in my garage will hold a ~800 lb. engine?
Finn helped me in the yard on Saturday. Her favorite part was playing in the Scout.
My hinge is in, as well as two clevis mounts bored out for mounting. I’m not sure whether I’m going to use these or a piece of 4×4 box to mount it to the bumper yet, but I’m psyched!
Not much new to report; after a hurried warmup and three gallons of gas, Peer Pressure rumbled quietly and politely into work this morning. I need to continue spraying white lithium grease on the heater control lever in the engine bay, because it takes a super-strong knuckle to get it moving. I asked Santa for a Kensington iPhone clamp so that I can get my phone up off the seat and into view. Next I need to find a cord with a thin enough edge to fit my case so that I can put it through the stereo.
