Well I sure don't update this very much...

Now that it has over 14,000 KM I'm doing a thorough check-over of a bunch of things to ready it for another cruising season. Things like re-packing the wheel bearings, tightening bolts and hose clamps, etc.

I had a small antifreeze leak that I couldn't figure out. It would leak a couple days after I drove it and leave a few spots on the floor. Or it would leak a little while driving but not consistently, I would see the antifreeze dripping off the frame or steering and I could not figure out where it was leaking from. So I set about to tighten all the clamps on the cooling system, and it started dripping from the upper rad hose on the radiator. The clamp was actually coming apart! Good thing that didn't happen on the road! She's all fixed up now.

Just a few more things and I can put it back down on the ground!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when I知 gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

My truck is all spiffed up for our wedding, this is what it looks like with Patina Sauce on it in the sun.

Torchie, having used both Linseed Oil (on wood projects) and Patina Sauce, I really don't think they're that similar. The colour, viscosity, scent, and the way they dry is different.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

It has a sweet smell. Almost candy-like.
