    What a handsome bunch, especially Dapper Dan there in the middle. It's easy to see who does the actual work over there :rolleyes:
    No smog checks on older vehicles here in CT... and no inspections either. Vehicles with Classic plates are also taxed at a value of no more than $600 as well.

    I was attempting to recharge my A/C this morning using those CA approved Child Proof Self Sealing Freon cans that take the special valve. I didn't have time to finish the job today before work, so tomorrow morning I'll have to pick up where I left off. At least the system appears to be functioning normally now that I have replaced that faulty expansion valve.

    I also mounted an auxiliary fuse panel and ground strap in an open area under the dash on the heater box. Easy to see the little Red indicators when mounted here. It's also much easier to get at when you want to add or remove something. I haven't powered it up yet though, I was to busy today... maybe tomorrow.

    Powered up my Aux Fuse Panel and Ground Bus this morning with a couple of 10 gauge cables.

    I also added a Aux Power Bus out under the hood next to the Battery, which is also fed by a 10 Gauge cable.

    Added another 12oz of refrigerant to the A/C as well, but that's all I had time for this morning. Still need to add another 16oz of refrigerant before I'm done.

    Patience Bob... Just keep your eyes open and an ear to the ground. Don't be in a hurry.
    I paid $17K for Montana, and I'll have that truck forever. Cheap to fix, and easy to work on, like your old Dodge.
    I'll keep my eyes open for ya as well.

    Happy Fathers Day!!!!

    Thank You... I will find one for sure. I'm not in a hurry. It will popup when I least expect it. But I'll put the funding together to make it happen when it comes up. Just been looking at prices and got wowed... I am so used to buys new stuff at cost and custom building them for that kind of money, when someone tells me a price, I guess I just loose my chit...lol
    Will keep you guys posted... For Sure....

    Sunny here today as well after a few days of the old dark and dismal wet weather.
    Attempted to repair the input shaft leak on Montana's power steering gear, but I couldn't get the locknut to budge. Just couldn't get a good angle on it to hit it with anything, at least not without a lift. I don't have a vehicle lift, so maybe I'll design a dedicated tool for the job, and then have another go at it.
