Mr Pepper takes great joy in "wrenching" on old cars and trucks. He vehemently swears that "That is the last one I am gonna fix. Damned parts are getting too expensive."
And then he buys another one.
He had been casting covetous glances at one of my lawn ornaments. He has a birthday (his 84th) coming up.
|He made the ramps out of guard rail.|
|We put a "round" of firewood where the arrow is pointing. The chain was hanging up on the trailer.|
|Somehow I had lost the key to the lawn ornament and the front wheels were not pointing straight ahead. Mr Pepper advised running the strap of the come-along on-the-bias to counter act the wheels turning to the left.|
|We did not have to worry about the vehicle rolling backwards because I had cunningly arranged for the right, rear wheel to lock up.|
|Almost done! The bottle of water was for the strong back, weak mind of the team.|
|Mr Pepper strapping things down to make sure things don't go flying off. Things went well, about 40 minutes from start of loading to tie-down.|
|That bendied-up exhaust pipe might explain some of the crunching noises we heard as I racheted the Cavalier up onto the trailer. Probably would have gone on more easily if we had done a better job tying it up in place. Too late now.|
