Wintertime Projects

Anyone doing some wintertime projects? Let's hear what's in store for the rainy season (since that is all we got right now).

I'm doing some garage improvements. I fixed the attic ladder much to betterment of anyone standing under it especially me. I'm improving the air lines through the "shop" with a retractable hose reel, a water separator and an outlet with coil hose mounted over the Handy Lift. No more tripping on airhoses.

Next is better storage for the junk and better lighting over the work bench. After that I'll install a couple of theater seats with cup holders for John and Art at the next tech session . Don't forget to bring the big torque wrench John. Just kidding! Ouch! I didn't know that torque wrence came with stitches.

Hello Ernie,
I hope all is well with your shoulder. I have actually been out riding the last few days. Short rides, 40-75 miles a day. Just taking the long way to the store or to visit a friend. I just started installing my new intercom a few hours ago. Have the helmet wired up and the unit as well. I tapped into the rear speaker wires. The stereo sounds great, I tried my cell phone and it sounds really clear. Just need to run the wires and mount it somewhere(cell phone) Radar detector is in the works as well.
I hope you guys are not effected by the flooding. I'll be selling my old autocom M1 if you know anyone who needs one. Lets get together soon......

By the way Ernie, how the heck you doing? I'm glad that you are upgrading your garage a bit. While you are at it if you could get one of those recliners with a vibrating back massagers that would be great
