  1. Okay, okay. I Googled DM. D’uh.
  2. DM, PM, Messenger?
  3. So, I’m not a big social media guy, what’s a DM? PM? Thanks, I see it a lot lately.
  4. I bowed out of a luncheon date today because of the # of new COVID cases.
  5. Day 1, Project #3. Tore old deck down last summer, and prepped the area. Landing and steps removed. Possibly a bit over-built. 2”x10” instead of 2”x6” or 2”x8”. Engineered ‘screw’ fasteners, galvanized lag bolts and bolts, etc. No ‘tin’ joist hangers / deck screws joining the joists and posts.
  6. Project #3 starts tomorrow....
  7. Today’s progress, Project #2 complete!
  8. Took/taking an unplanned diversion from the rigs. My brother is using his garage for a short bit. 1) Installed two shut-off valves, new sink and taps. 2) Built a small foundation, and currently erecting a garden shed. The 10’ x 14’ x 9’ shed is crammed full.. 3) Building a new patio deck.
  9. Calendar showing all activities re the Scout. Been a busy few weeks...
  10. LED bulbs all installed, and flashers changed to LED compatible versions. Crazy amount of half-hidden bulbs in the dash, but we think we got them all. Pics another time. New dash knobs mostly installed. (Still have to install the identification labels, now that they’re in their proper orientation.) Rear ‘cubby-hole’ cabinet installation started. Etc etc. Now taking a few days off to complete some house maintenance (also my bro has his rig in the garage ).
  11. Lol, I don’t know! Never crossed my mind or I read it and I don’t remember. We’re going to finish the installation today and do a better test..
  12. Started switching the dash bulbs to LED and looked at the non-factory license plate light. It’s sealed and not replaceable.
  13. Installed LED bulbs in almost all of the Scout lights yesterday. Pics to follow another time. Another parts shipment arriving tomorrow... Next up...
  14. Those knobs are for the Scout, btw.
  15. New dash control knobs. Originals are 40+ yr old plastic, and an old spring for tension. New ones are billet aluminum, knurled edge, with a set screw. The one that really matters is the hood release. First off, mine was missing when I purchased the truck. Second, the knob is reported to consistently pull off. (It’s a pull knob and needs to be on tight!)
  16. Here’s a sticker I will be posting on the IH Scout. Nuff said!
  17. Scheduled deliveries: Items from Binder Boneyard - Thursday, March 12 Items from Harvester Hardware - Monday, March 15
  18. I received two more tracking numbers yesterday.... but I think they won’t arrive till next week.
  19. IIRC, it flopped on it’s side.
  20. Yes. Standardized channels.
  21. The tiny Scout decal is of a real life Scout, that participated in Ultimate Adventure 2020.
  22. Tell me about it! They predicted delivery by 12 noon! I just received the factory Service Manual set! And a small ‘Heep’-style decal to place on my windshield, back window, rim(s).... Thick!
  23. The paper flyer showed both the DeWalt and Cobra brands (certain models) on sale. When we were in-store they didn’t have a sale sticker on the Cobra 3-pack, but at the check-out it rang in at the sale price. $69.99 down to $49.99. They aren’t the heft and quality of DeWalt, but not the expense either. ‘Disposable’ if you break/lose the Cobra units. The Cobra even has the weather channel(s). I’m happy for a first try at using these.
