I haven't opened a vent window in over 40 years. I don't like the look and often they whistle. I think they make one piece glass conversion kits but probably more money than I want to spend.

Having your tire slashed is such an incredibly low life thing to do. Can't believe how anybody could get enjoyment out of doing that. :realmad:

Ya me either
Worse yet I know who did it! a family member!\
It will be cold day in hell before he sets foot in this house again I can tell u that.
It was almost $1000 bucks for two new rear tires that match today.
Went to about 6 different stores looking for correct size in a run flat.
No one had them! all wanted a 1 week wait to get them.

I am glad I don't do burn outs, those tire are just to expensive and hard to get for that!
I am in a rock and a hard place currently wife's tranny let go in her car and she refuses to drive CJ7 Jeep or my F250 4x4 truck and leaving her my VW is out of question because of my commute. and I dont want to take the Vett as I am worried about the tune on it detonating like it is.

So she gets my Vett she will only be doing short trips with it compared to my commute (Oh the suffering she must endure! lol!)

You sure don't need family members like that, that's crazy.

That's the problem with newer performance cars, really good handling tires cost big bucks.

Yeah I don't think my wife would be into driving a huge Ford 4x4 or a lifted CJ. Her daily driver is a Jeep Wrangler but it's stock so very comfortable.

I'm working on the door glass, it's going to be a pain to get the adjustment perfect. Had to order some regulator rollers for the other side. Managed to get enough good ones from the 2 sides to do one side.

Work has been crazy again they changed my schedule yet again.

Speaking of side glass I need to order new rollers for the Plymouth project.

I will be working yet again on the rental this weekend another never ending saga.
I was hoping to get other things done this weekend but It has priority right now.

Between work and the rental I don't know how you get anything else done

I'm just pickin away at the Stang, making slow progress. Got all the side glass and felts in, not a lot of fun.

Fall is here so I need to get out in the yard and cut down all the dead trees and buck them up so that will take a while, quite a few of them.

Eh just been enjoying my time off when I get it haven't really done much on any of my projects. Although I have spent money on them! Rental mainly got a new paint sprayer gonna buy paint asap and get the siding done along with re insulating the floor where I had to tear it up for repairing bathroom.

I went out to shop yesterday and walked out in disgust for so much needing to be done and caught up. Just don't feel like it any more.

Wife Back is getting worse she has 3 blown out disks and other issues! surgery has been delayed due to covid and insurance keeps fighting surgery as well, I am sick of it been going on far to long with No way to fight these people.
She needs surgery yesterday and no one cares.

On a Side note check out Shiba inu its a Krypto coin I bought some on a hedge for the future. Do what you want but I think its a good buy at this time. don't wait!

Three blown discs is brutal, feel really bad for her. I have one but it has improved a lot in the last few months. I've been going for electro shock therapy, basically jack hammers around the blown disc area with electric pulses. I have no idea why it's been working but it has.

I get the not motivated to work on any projects. I'm like that a lot but I try to get something done every day even if it isn't much.

I'll check out the krypto, I have a lot of stock market investments but never got into the krypto stuff. Don't really understand it.

Sorry, it's called shock wave, not electro shock. Just went for one.

I have been digging for my old corrupted hard drives (I never throw one away!) and old notes from 2011.

Long story short I was drunk one day (go figure lol) and bought a $100 of Bit coin back in 2011 then it was worth about .12 cents each per coin I figure about 800+ coins.
At the time I had trouble with the online wallet deal and scribbled down key and saved it all on the puter I was using at the time, the old hard drive crashed and I replaced it reloading software myself that was in 2014-2015 ? any way I heard from others recently that each coin was now worth north of 50K!

I found a Bunch of my old hard drives some I can get into with a boot strap device I bought and 3 are flat out dead and dont do anything.
I just called a Data recovery place they want $300-$1500 per drive with no Guaranty to anything.
I have searched and searched for my old notes with no luck, Every time I hear about its price I go searching BUT this time with real intent! Dam its frustrating!
I am really Kicking myself this time!

That would be all kinds of frustrating, I hope you get it figured out. Sounds like lottery money. That's one of the things that threw me off the whole kripto thing. I read some guy that controlled it for investors died and nobody knew how to access the account. As far as I know that never got resolved.

I got into one of the hard drives today and found a tid bit from 2018 I know it was much longer go than that that I made the purchase, I think that was just an attempt to figure this out back in 2018 as I have been on again off again about this for a while now.

I am gonna have to have a forensic deal done on the hard drives I cant get to open. That's not gonna be cheap! with no guaranty that any of it hasn't already been lost forever.
If I don't do it I will never know? if I do do it and they don't find anything I'm just out a few bucks for trying.
