    How come you don't use a leg system on your tailgate portion of your bed platform that will allow you to access your tubs ?

    Replaced with Precision 338(s) from NAPA. Found a reference on Ranger Forum. With military discount they were $15 a piece at my local store in Palmer, and they have grease zerks; as opposed to the Polaris OE at $46 a piece with no zerks. Makes a huge difference in throttle response without all that slack in the driveline.

    I think I caught a piece of that show. :facepalm: One I caught was "investigating" ghosts from a tornado in 1908. :rolleyes:

    :rofl:


    Morning :wave:

    Coming along. Got most of the back caulked and primed some. Got one double window painted and finished. I have to replace a window sill on another double window and then I can paint everything. Porch will probably be done first back there. I have a little to do on the front porch left.

    Yeah it is a lot of work when you want it to look really good. :D

    I got to see the electrophysiologist today at noon. Hopefully he moves pretty quick and I can get back to work soon.

    Sounds like you're doing it right. Should last a good while once you get it done. :thumbsup:

    Hope he does too! Know it's frustrating for you. Hang in there.

    Yeah being a former cabinet maker it kinda killed any chances of me half assing anything. I hope it lasts till we find a bigger house sometime down the road.

    Yeah, I'm not much of one to sit around the house. At least the painting is keeping me busy.

    Yesterday I couldn't figure out why in the hell the damn double hung windows wouldn't bypass each other to paint them. Well a little force and I found out. The alarm system sensors were screwed to the sashes for the upper sash and I now need a new one. :facepalm:

    It's always something, huh? Is that the only way to attach the sensor, or did somebody just not think it thru on install?

    The alarm system was installed after we bought the house so it was a retrofit instead of it being installed when the house was built, so the sensors are exposed on windows. The doors have a switch in the jamb and a magnet in the tops of the doors so they are not seen.

    On a side note I guess it didn't matter cause when I paint the inside, the windows will become white so the brown sensors on there now to match the stained finish will have to go anyway.

    Good morning all.
    I can still access them by flipping up the drop down support. As long as no weight is on the tailgate panel, it doesn't bother the hinges. I wanted support along the full width of the tailgate panel since climbing up focuses a lot of weight in that area. The drop down support stays put pretty well, but I may add some webbing to the sides to prevent it from opening too far.

    I need to skin the bottom of the main center support with some used 1/4" polycarbonate for better strength and to make sliding the jack around easier. Time to get the tent addition done.

    Yeah... Not sure I should. Thumb's looking like shit right now and I haven't slept well in 3 nights. Afraid I'm gonna need surgery but I don't have the sick time to be off that long I don't think. Just gonna play it by ear (or thumb).
