Thanks - it's a good mix of being solid and not too heavy.

I didn't know what system 28 was but a quick search seems it is like the acorn welding table tops. Both are very neat but a lot of money. I feel with the C channel top I'll have 80% of the function but at 20% of the cost

Put in a new windshield in the 110. Took me 45 mins tops. Started the rope at the bottom center and worked my way up on either side. Used a window suction grasperthingamabob, it allowed me to really give a good shove/pull all around.

I put heat insulation in and around the seat box, under the carpet on the trans tunnel and under the floor mats. it seems to make quite a difference. I also removed the center console and insulated that are. I used a product called Ez-cool. It was really easy to work with and inexpensive. Here's the link. EZ Cool Automotive Insulation heat barrier and noise reduction for cars, trucks, classic cars, street rods and much more

Thanks. How much did you use out of curiosity?

Bill, I got the the $45 roll, which includes 10' of tape and a razor knife. I believe that it's 10'x4' or something like that. I still have enough left if i decide to do the firewall. They ship really quickly as well.

It was used as it should be today - a little recreation and a little work. Carried Mountain bikes to the trailhead in the morning and collected Firewood in the afternoon.

I must also admit that I chuckled at the idea of collecting firewood in early August, then saw that ferniekids is in Canada. We Floridians have no idea.

I am a little late in stocking up for the winter. According to the hit book, which I just finished, "Norwegian Wood: Chopping, Stacking, and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way", it should be done at leaf out in the spring! Believe it or not it is a good read!

Replaced a leaking hodgepodge expansion tank to radiator hose with one piece. Hadn't driven the truck in about a month. Started beautifully and drove without any issues. #winning #howlongcanyourssitbeforeitwontstart

Finished installing my new GBR front and rear 4.14 diff and took it for a spin, very happy. Now need to get the compressor hooked up for the ARB, and have to get the speedo worked out...
