Nice weather, 68F and sunny. Wheels $30 per including tax.

I wish I could find deals like that here in Jersey. There's a u-pull-it place not too far from here that I want to go to, but I KNOW I'd cause a lot of damage to my bank account

Flea market not so different than junkyard.
Car show at the fair grounds today, maybe 200 cars historic to modern, show cars, fire engines and such. In the pic, I picked up these, $2, $1, $5 in order. Big spender. Checked the calibration on the TQ and set it for 100, it will be my lug tightener in place of the 3/8" which is OK but bit too short.

Pic of JY today, went early as it is supposed to be 97F today.
Went last Monday with our son who was visiting from ~700 miles away. Some of his inlaw relative called and was in a panic. Chrysler 300 with 3.7L and he had broken/damaged a fuel rail removing an injector. Nothing in any JY near enough for them, but I found one at our local. Son and I went and pulled it and it was maybe 5 minutes for us to remove the clips and bolts. Plastic. First for me plastic fuel rail. Any $20 and we were on our way home. While passing Ford isle I saw a DOHC and knew I need to return for the plastic shield for the Alt belt. 14 bulls on the lot, only one DOHC. Shield missing from my '03, thanks to bad shops. Fairly easy pull and on the way down the isle I saw these tires on '06.
Easy pull as the lugs were not double tight, just a hard pull. Home and they have solid 7/32 tread, good alloys, and balance 0.5 each side. I have seen up to 3 oz on Goodyears. $30 per wheel, including tax. Can't let that pass.

JY tire pressure

So, I checked pressure. At the JY I watch for soft tires as they likely leak around the bead. These were hard. My gage, 0-60 very accurate round gage and: 55# on the first one, second pegged the hand past 60. So I used a 0-100# which is not as accurate and it was ~70#. Just a bit of info about how the rest of the world lives. And the tires were inside the shop, not out in the sun as the earlier picture. Out in the direct 90F+ and I might have been at risk. BOOM!

I took my white 95 Taurus GL to Crazy Ray's in Edgwood, MD about a month ago. It should still have lots of good parts on it. It was hit on a driver's side and had damage to the left side passenger door and left side quarter panel. The rear bumper is gone and the left rear axle is bent. The mileage at the time of the accident was only 107k.

55f AND sunny today. Snow all melted. Went by the JY today and looked for a driver's seat, leather gray. Found a very nice one. Will return when I get a chance.
Changed how they do things. All Bulls no wheels. They removed them and put them in the office. Set of 4 on 5 spoke wheels, Like new tread maybe 95% by finger feel. $230 so I though high, but not really. Since they get $30 per but not that good tread. They get more for a set of 4 per wheel than singles. I do not need them, just sharing.

Update, went by with my tire gage and top one solid 8/32. However third down more like 5/32. I did not unstack to see what that is. Top one date code week 23 of 2018 so less than a year old. So I just went out in the yard to check out the gray leather seat again for condition. Looks good may take it later when the weather is no looking like rain.

Local yard, about 2 miles from the apartment, 5 from the house. My wagon seat was used hard by previous owner, some leather opened up and foam showing through. This from '00 Bull. I got wheel borrow and out to the far back corner for this. Then found the one back bolt needed 18mm deep wall as it is the seat belt anchor. So, back to the house to get a socket and back to the back corner and got it all out.


Pic shows my "whatever works" to get the motor to run for and back to reach the bolts. My battery is 12V impact driver and the wires are what I can find in my junk.
$25 total. Tired old coot now, got cortisone shot in knees yesterday and they have not taken hold fully yet. Nice 45 degree sunny day, make hay when the sun shines. Rusty car with 112K miles.

I took these mats to pad my seat from the dirty wheel borrow. Checkout said keep them. Unusual for a 18 year old car but they had put rubber mats over them. Those were trash. Washed and drying on the patio. Ones in my wagon wrong color and very worn.
