    Afternoon all:

    I like the tint also Kurt, not a fan of the really dark tint though.

    Been pouring here and a flash flood alert is in effect for areas just South of us, was a good day to get the coal stove ready for winter, just need to clean the pipe and put it back on, which is the last and easiest part of the job.

    Well Kurt, it started raining and then it started pouring with thunder and lightning and because I don't have a roof over the deck, I ended up cooking this in the oven :annoyed:

    Still was good but barbecue is better.:D

    I spent the day washing and ceramic coating the taco today. Good weather for it. Started out rainy today but cleared out early. Truck looks great. Went for an evening motorcycle ride after that. Very relaxing and enjoyable ride. I really do love the Bonneville.

    What ceramic did you try? I have a couple on hold, but cool and shady days are few and far between! (And I gotta fix my hood, and my budget friend appears to have folded his biz!)

    Good morning fellow Porchatonians!! We had an all day rain here yesterday - really needed it. Luckily I got the grass cut on Saturday. More showers today.

    Mowed everything yesterday. I would rather not mow on Sunday, but the weather refused to cooperate. It was still slightly damp at 5pm. Fact of life: grass won't be dry enough to mow until the temp's too hot. Satisfying to have it done for a while.:thumbsup:

    I'm trying the torque brand. They have several products. I chose the redline shine for the initial coat as it is long lasting. I'll use some of they're spray on applications for maintenance and cleaning. They have sales on this stuff all the time. I will say that this was the easiest ceramic I have ever used, went on really easy and wiped off just as easy. No vigorous buffing required. I bet it didn't take an hour to do the whole truck. Covered everything on my taco, including glass and plastic. It really brought the plastic back. And the shine is amazing. Time will tell how it holds up. I used there clay MIT to wash the truck and it really made a difference. You could feel it sticking to the rough surface of the paint and as you used it you could feel it smoothing out. I waited for a sale on the redline shine product as it is expensive. The everyday detailing products are reasonable though.

    Kurt: What brand of hose reel did you purchase? I agree on the difficulty to roll up is a challenge at times. I hHave the same hose reel. My next hose reel will have less hose on the reel.

    Good morning. Today is a day at the dentist getting a new crown. My dentist said that they do it all so the crown will be fitted and made in his office. This is supposed to be a 3 hour process. We shall see.

    A little something every chance we get.
    :pccoffee: Good Morning Porch Pals & Sue! Well, I saved the hard job for Monday - going to replace the distribution tube in the pool filter. It still spews Zeolite (sand) media every start up, since replacing the old filter. Tried the old valve head, redid the tubes last year - got it to good enough. But, now it's every day. So, rip it apart, suck out the sand, and try the original tubes. Probably require several cans of hydration.

    Thanks Greg - I will look into that.

    I had an IKRIS from Amazon - lasted 5 years. That one was 75 feet, and I had to pull it almost all the way out to get to the corner of the front yard. I think that was part of the internals going wonky eventually. That, and my wife just lets it loose to rewind. The IKRIS is no longer available, so I got this one at 100 feet. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09NYBVMST?ie=UTF8

    :pccoffee: :wave: sixtys/wannabes/humidities. It's been gooey around here all week. Yesterday it rained A LOT; flooding and washouts all around the area.

    Hose reels: Eley. That's all I have to say. Pricey, but you will never buy another one. I finally bit the bullet after having two supposedly high quality units either crack or rust into pieces.

    Sounds like the 15 turns is a lot more challenging than the dirt oval track racing we get around here and you can get 140 I'm impressed. It's great you can still enjoy it. I have a friend that does drag/ ET's that his wife does with the same car he complains that she is more consistent than he is but they enjoy it. They're 68 and 70 his wife is a little older than him, and the same age as my wife.

    So much fun, again!

    20230710_101154.jpg

    All comes out that small hole

    20230710_104938.jpg
    20230710_125050.jpg

    The new one is on the left, covered in Zeosand. The old one, on the right, is going back in. It's the only part that hasn't been changed.

    20230710_104946.jpg
    20230710_112645.jpg

    The bottom pieces have to get folded down to 90*. The one I pulled seemed to be, but I installed it twice, so I am suspicious of it. Fill tank halfway with water, 100 lbs of new sand, another pail of dry used, and back together.

    20230710_125057.jpg

    And I think that's it! First bunch of tests it's perfect, and even running lower pressure, closer to what wife wants . I'll clean up in a few, get the zeo off me, and take a pool break! :cheers:
