Driveway (small parking spot)  was paved this week!  Although not directly related to vehicle progress, it sure is nice to have it done.  Been waiting since early May.

Shed is expected to hit the next milestone in the next few days....

Fall is coming...

I like a good paved driveway. Makes maintenance a lot easier ... less risk of rocks through windows with snow blowers / lawn mowers too.

Yup!  Especially re the rocks.  I whipper-snipped a rock through a window last summer...  $$. 😔

Yup ... in the old house we had a hill which was just overgrown; I'd say a good 50 feet from the house. I was going over it with the whipper snipper and later found a few rocks up on the deck! Luckily nothing hit glass.

Still busy with 'summer' home/cottage projects. 

Currently waiting on LED head- and fog- lights for J's 2014 Ford Escape.  We'll see how they work out..

Currently waiting on the BackRack for the Ranger.  It's supposedly scheduled for release at the end of the month....

And waiting for a release of Ford tow hooks for the rear of the Ranger.  Friendly/knowledgeable parts chap at Fairley & Stevens says either when the 2021 Ford Ranger Tremor debuts in spring 2021,    OR...    when the Ford 3-Stages of off-road suspension and tire/wheels packages debut for the Ranger this fall, he might/should be able to source them.

 

Hey, I might get stuck on a wet lawn somewhere! LOL

Noticed my John Deere is an E130.

And switched the pathetic ‘headlights’ (1156 bulbs, commonly older automotive reverse lights) to LED 1156 bulbs.  Just for fun!

Left light in picture is original incandescent, right is LED.

Nice ! Good upgrade, I was thinking about adding a small led cube on the push bar of mine

Also switched both High- and Low- beam halogen headlights on the Escape to LEDs.  Next, and last on the Escape, will be the fog lights.
