Stuff from D. April 24, 2010.

Haven’t posted in a while. Things have been crazy…. Work, the move, etc….

Drove the Chevy II out a few weeks ago. Had to put in new wheel cylinders, and rear axle seals for out of province. Had fun making up new brake lines. Issues with the old junction block. Reading the instructions that comes with the flaring tool really does help………. Thanks to my new car club friends for their help! (Martin and Dave!)

Went to Connecticut on business recently. Rented a 2010 Camaro. It was a V6 version but still fun! Comfy seats, nice ride. Didn’t like huge blind spot in the back.
