    Plot twist. South Coast Conner didn’t invite you. Something about excessive time spent at the gym was mentioned

    If your looking for garage cabinets keep an eye out for used kitchen cabinets, that's what everyone I know uses.
    Just make sure when you put them on the wall that you hit a stud.

    Another good idea. I was going to cruise some local, village Facebook pages for ads too. Most of the time they get rid of that stuff and it's in decent condition and free.

    I did this too, started with a couple from my neighbors remodel and then saved a few more from our remodel last year. I have one wide 4 door I'm making my son's workbench/outdoor toy storage. I rattle can them black couple stickers here and there and they fit right in.

    Also back on the tool boxes, if you get one with 6 casters I've noticed they always show putting the 2 fixed casters in the middle and swivels on the ends. This makes it almost impossible to get up close to a wall and takes a lot more space to maneuver. I put the fixed ones opposite the handle end and then push that in towards the corner then you can swing the other end in.

    Even the really bad ones offer advantages. If it's worth the effort (not far and several cabinets) then I'll go just for the hardware. Drawer slides add up and I've been able to build a number of shop cabinets using the salvaged hardware (slides and hinges).

    #NeverForget.

    Not really feeling today....


    Hoping that I can start some projects around the house this weekend; some painting, some landscaping and finally starting my worktable project too. All of this is pending as it keeps fucking raining. Rain today, rain tomorrow, but sunny Sunday. I suppose I can go get the wood in the rain, however, I just don't want to. I think I will get the supplies I need for the painting and landscaping projects and at least get the some of the landscaping done. It's a small project and can get done in the rain without much worry at all. I just really hate not being productive on the weekend.

    The rain can kiss my ass.

    Hope everyone has a good day and a good start to the weekend.

    Year of the flex...

    Contacted the village regarding a few projects I want to do at the property. Time to contact a few companies and get some quotes figured out. Hoping I can get a solid, shortened (time) workout in at the gym and make a Home Depot run tonight.

    Truck update:

    Still trying to decide between dual batteries or the 31M upgrade. I am leaning towards the 31M option though and will probably end up going that route.

    Has anyone here that has done this mod done the following to trick the computer into increasing the alternator voltage output?

    Option 1:

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/agm-battery-charging-alternator-voltage-booster.611314/

    GM part# - GM12135037


    Option 2:

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/the-northstar-agm-battery-voltage-booster-upgrade.604478/



    I assume that a high output alternator is the best route to take, however, under the assumption cost is a concern, which would you choose or which have you done?

    TIA.
