Well fellas, I just ordered a set of DWT Red lables with Doonz for all four corners.  😎  Too bad I just lost the transmission in my SUV this afternoon... 🙄 I Would've rather put that $2500 - $3500 into a new enclosed trailer.  Oh and a 15 year old boy asked my 16 year old daughter to Home Coming. I'm not sure what other bad news I'm going to run into,  but I've had about enough.

October 21 can't come soon enough. I still have to get a flag, wire my 3rd brake light, change oil & filter, put on my smaller front sprocket, and put on my new chain and a bit of chain lube. Most of which I'm planning on doing this weekend.

I need this vacation... Sand therapy should help my stress levels right?🤔

Now onto the changing out the water pump.  Found the water leak was from the pump. Ya my fault again.  In my haste I wanted to see if the trans would shift and I started the motor without water.  Only ran it for like three or four minutes but that was just long enough to scrub the water pump seal.

I added to my last post down the page about the trans.   kick

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

they sell the right colored flags there but needs to be a reddish orange color. flags needs to touch the pole at the gate so apprx 6 to 8' off the top of your roll cage.

Bar at gate is supposedly 10 feet. That's the regulation.
