Staining/sealing arbor/trellis and fence first thing in the morning for me, should suck.
Threw on backup pump for well today as think the impeller has broken or is spinning on shaft on old one. Just not working properly half the time. Might upgrade the pressure tank also this week as its getting oldmand with my luck fails when I leave town.

Might have been cheaper and easier to buy a small car and cut the body panels off it...

Axle tore down and and going to machine shop for a cover with a bearing. Although the original idea might be better.

I guess I could wipe these tires with a soapy brush and find out, but do any of you have experience with directional tires? I see these markings on the right side, and I wonder if they are like the blue shit over white lettering. It looks like these help the installer mount them properly. I replaced the runflats on my wife's DD last weekend and just noticed this.

No frickin idea.

When I got tires for the ceefer I put masking tape identifying each directional wheel with an arrow pointing in the “go” direction so they wouldn't screw up the directional tires. I’m surprised they got it right.
