As someone mentioned above, the harmonic balancer can be an issue but I haven't had it with mine. The electronics can be a little finicky, especially if you let the battery go low. I keep mine on a battery tender if I won't be driving it more than a ... more »

Thanks. Keep an eye on the for sale forum on that website, you may just find one with similar mods done already. Although a deal might be hard to come by now. Like everything else, that market seems to have gone a little crazy this year. https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums/c6-corvettes-for-sale-98/ ... more »

I would go for the Grand Sport or ZO6 to start with if you want the wide body. I've read converting a base to wide body costs a lot more than the difference in buying, unless you are capable of doing it all yourself. Grand Sports didn't start until 2010,

I have the identical truck in a 2020, so far its been great. I only have about 6k miles on it though, haven't done any highway trips so can't comment on the mileage. Around town it's been about 17.

Looks good!! I painted 5 rooms in my house when the Covid shut downs started, made me appreciate my painter more than I already did.

They should have given you regular primer at Sherwin Williams. Like ployboy said above, what you got is for bare drywall. Kilz should work too. Edit: Their website does say that "drywall primer" is for existing painted surfaces too. Are you doing flat ... more »

That's great to hear, hopefully the trend continues. I have always been real worried about how the trades will look 5,10,20 years out. It's really hard to find good carpenters, masons, electricians, plumbers, etc. now and I fear it's going to get much ... more »

I have a friend that used to say "I am going to have my retirement party and funeral on the same day". Sometimes that's how it feels in the construction business.

No main events here in Raleigh, cut to protest coverage after the LCQ and never went back. Wish they would just leave it all on NBC Sports.

Budds Creek 1994. Drove 5 hours from Long Island with my girlfriend at the time. Mike LaRocco won, couldn't believe anyone could go that fast on a bike. Up until that point the fastest riders I had seen were the A guys in D34 (and they were plenty fast). ... more »

I just bought a 2020 Ram 1500, also coming from a 2014 F250 Diesel. Haven't towed with it yet so glad to hear you like how it does.

Great pictures!! Steamboat was an option for our trip this March be we chose Aspen instead and we will do 2 days at Copper on our way back towards Denver. I am planning to go back in early April with my younger daughter so I'm hoping for some good snowstorms ... more »

Those are good lift ticket prices, my little "home" mountain here in NC (Sugar) is about the same. I am sure Brian Head is much better. Yes, Vail is about $220 a day at the window, insane!! I have an "Ikon Pass" which was $619 when I purchased it last ... more »

We skied at Squaw/Alpine and down at Mammoth last year, Tahoe is a beautiful area. I like going in the trees some too but definitely like to keep the skis on the ground!!

We went to Breckenridge a few years ago, my wife really enjoyed the town. Definitely a cool place. She is not much of a skier so if she comes we need to be near a town for her to walk around. And the skiing was great, again it was during the week but ... more »

I've heard good things about Brianhead, looks good. My favorite in Utah is Alta, last year when I was there it was real quiet. But of course it was during the week. We also skied Snowbird, Solitude, and one day at Deer Valley. Looking forward to getting ... more »

Thanks. Even if no trees were in play, still way better than anything we could imagine here.

Too funny!! Brackets for floating shelves installed on Friday. Barn doors is a fad I hope goes away soon.
