      Our french door Electrolux (#RichRepublicanFrigidaire) has had a few issues and the latest is stuff at the top of the fridge has been freezing and the produce drawers at the bottom have ice forming on the back.

      The ice maker also stopped making ice in the first month or two after we moved in but the water dispenser still worked fine. Come to find out, they have their own water lines and the fridge body wasn't insulated properly around the icemaker at the factory and the water line for it was freezing.

      Standard Race Face Ride included on the X-Caliber 8 from 2018. Pedals are my first "upgrade". Next would be the tires which I'll wait a little longer. Only inadequate in wet conditions but makes the bike remarkably easy to drift on softer gravel/sand.

      Rear shock mounts for E46, fuel pump, and front right window regulator.

      Oh, and we have a cleaning lady for the house now. Which honestly is one of the best purchases we've ever made.

      Fantastic little knife. Been EDC for over a year now.
      I paid $16 for this Bantam SAK.

      I used to EDC a SAK mini champ but then lost it, now I EDC a Classic SD with solid sterling silver handles on my keychain:

      It would be cool if people would read the very short info packet on road edicate.

      It would of been benefited one couple on the way down when they pulled into a turn off a few spots from me. They hopped out real quick looked at the brakes in a panicked said they were smoking before I knew it they were putting water on them . The male came over asked if I had any water to spare I informed him that I didn't and it's not a good idea to poor cool water on your over heated brakes and took off.

      Tell him to use water with the temperature of 98.6.

      Back in CT I had access to a HVAC sheet metal shop next door to my office/warehouse. They have brakes, box brakes and shears that would turn out a perfect pan/box is just a few minutes. You should consider seeing if anyone in that field would let you borrow their shop or just do the work for you.

      Nah. If I can DIY something, and pick up some new knowledge, I will always go that route.

      After finagling it this morning I got it pretty close to perfect.

      I just needed to do this tiny area. Came out fine just with a rubber mallet, and a roller.


      If I were redoing the whole kitchen I would rent a break.

      I love these little dudes.

      For $5-10 there’s no better thing to keep in your pocket. Perfect for opening boxes and cutting loose strings.

      Thanks!

      We have been working pretty hard to get the yard to the shape it’s in (still a few minor things to do), with the fence up we have been enjoying it a lot.

      The outdoor kitchen is pretty nice to have, I have to admit. Having gas piped in from the house and never having to buy propane again is great and having a sink outside comes in handy. You can’t see it, but there is a built in cooler in the counter across from the grill. Through some ice in and you cold beers/soda/water all day long. It drains to the main of the house.

      The R is coming together. Between the new suspension and the tire and wheel combo I out on a few years back (OZ light weight wheels and PSS tires), it finally handles pretty darn good.
