    I don’t get the KY Jelly bit. I am from KY and we grew up eating that on biscuits and cornbread, were we wrong?

    Best one today :D

    The internet videos of this project made it out to be a pretty easy job.

    NOT.

    Not for me anyway. I am getting there though.

    It was a B#@ch taking it apart due to age and the design of mounting bolts attached to the long orange light housing. Removing those 4 nuts (2 on each one) are almost inaccessible. If my hands and arms were any bigger...I'd have had to take it to somebody else. Look up replacing 1995 ford F150 headlight videos and you'll see what I'm talking about. I have nicks and abrasions on both hands and arms due to that design. :s

    Putting it back together was a breeze. I didn't have to fight that design since I was working with new (and lubricated threads) bolts on those orange light housings. Also, all the mods were done last night on the mating of the orange housing and the chrome trim frame.

    All in all, it was worth 120.00 for the front end and 40.00 for the taillights. The orange housing is CHEAPLY made. But after the first splitting of the first post, I drilled out the rest to minimize any more splitting. Also, the posts didn't align with opening in the mounting frame. I drilled sideways on the frame at each of the 3 openings also to allow alignment for the said screws. Took just a few minutes but still...


    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    As jaundiced as my view of "technology" can be -- this struck me as both cool to see boiled down into a graph, and impressive in terms of the real improvement in automobile performance in the past several decades. The average selling price probably ought've been trended with these parameters, too. :)

    Ahem. To quote Hall & Oates:
    Oh, I can't go for that -- no can do...

    Poutine is the food of the gods. Especially with duck, as our (one and only) local eatery makes it. :)

    You are moving the goalposts. Who said anything about duck?

    I live in the land of poutine, dedicated restaurants to it chip trucks galore and many fast food restaurants have it on their menu.

    And just out of the frame is Vladimir Putin holding a remote. He’s also partial to red.
