Using a lifted RC that gets 9.5 mpg to drive to work is already an indulgence.  Paying $100 to not be tugging on ratty broken arm rests isnt a big deal.  I guess I could have bought them from that other place for less.  Remind me who that is?

People have paid more for a Tom Brady Patriots jersey, or a beer and two hot dogs at an NHL game, or for one week's insurance after a DUI.  I'm ok with paying $100 for new arm rests that took an extra half hour to make fit.

    Nice repairs on those panels {cool}
    Sometimes it just takes more than the planned amount of effort to make something work.
    At least I know I'm not the only one where that happens  ;D

    I enjoy tinkering, making little improvements here and there.  These are the fun things I enjoy.  Last project involved a lot of rust repair.  Pure drudgery.

    Just now finished rinsing silt out of rockers, hat channels, etc.  Popped six or so rubber plugs from inside edge of rockers and flushed until it ran clear.  Leaving them open to breathe and dry out, then I'll wand in some manner of rust preventive wizardry.  Fluid Film used to be the shizzle, I've heard of something else people seem to like more now.  Fluid Film has a funky farm-fresh smell.  Not sure I'm into that.  Front cab mounts seem to be clean and clear now.

    Is there anything that keeps back seat folded forward?  Seems like mine just wants to flop back down unless I have stuff piled up behind it.

    I suppose I should get after my transfer case leak.  Prior owner had a rebuilt case installed.  Chilly's Law: the probability and volume of leakage increases as the square of amount of RTV used.  The installer really slathered it on, and leaks terribly at junction with the tranny.

    My 89 RC has a seatbelt buckle on the floor to clip into and hold the rear bench seat in place when folded up.

    Ah!  Mine HAD that, I did not reinstall because I thought it was for a jump seat where my console went, and didnt have the other half.  I'll reinstall.  Many thanks!

    Berkebile PFC is basically wool wax in a spray can.  Good stuff, I've been undercoating with it for years now.

    Console lid cable is broken.  Matter of time before that results in cracked plastic.  Wouldnt know where to find those washers with the safety cable crimp tab so I used a couple washers, a small aluminum tube spacer and crimp ferrules.

     Received word that one of my Navy buddies died unexpectedly at 52.  There were four of us who were like brothers.  We arrived to the sub near same time so went through progression from NUBs (non-useful bodies) to experienced crewmen together. 

    He's in central PA, I'm in middle TN, and I find myself short on vehicles with fewer than 200k miles built this century.  Glad I busted a move on the RC on Labor Day, though still dont have an exhaust.  So I loaded up some clothes, fluids, tools, Glock, and 870.  What else could I need?
