. Spray the garage and house perimeters with anti-spider poison. I am sick of Brown Recluse bites.
. Tidy and organize the garage a bit. It's a bit tight in there now.
. Start and wipe down the 1951 Chevy. Golly, but does it start right up!
. Remove the bodywork on the Aprilia (a must for doing anything to it) so I could change its oil and get ready for the scientific experiments involving souping it up. Also cleaned and adjusted the chain among other things.
. Change the oil on the Honda (everything's now full of fresh oil for the fresh season!).
. And other non-work stuff.
Was planning on going into the office, but I really wanted to get this stuff done. Next I need to run to some auto-parts stores in the hopes that I can find canister oil-filters for the pickup and Chevy; they use old-style insert filters rather than the modern spin-on types, and I bet I'll have to order 'em. Tomorrow I endeavor to see if Douglas County folks can figure out how to register a Vespa from overseas....
Oh, and good news about the new Saab: It is waterproof! It underwent a heckuva test this morning with the massive thunderstorm that passed through Lawrence, and when I checked inside, it was absolutely dry. Hooray good convertible top seals! On the other hand, I don't want to test the top with a hailstorm, so I've decided that I really do need to start selling excess vehicles, at least one, anyhow. First up for offer are the 1951 Chevy and the 1962 Ford pickup; I have a couple of interested folks, and if you're one of them, let me know! I will list them for sale elsewhere soon.
