    SAITCHO,
    That's GENIUS! I new you were a good, fabricator, mechanically inclined, and welder! The thought process that goes into it, in my opinion is phenomenal! Seriously, right there shows, that the sky, truly is the limit! With a little imagination, and some thinking outside of the box, you can really do some amazing work! I'm impressed! Nice work, SAITCHO!!!

    Well, i finally got the garden, all cleaned up, and picked up leaves and mulched leaves with a tow behind,(Cyclone Rake), that I simply love! A vac system that is second to none! Got the Mini at hunt camp, didn't get there this weekend, will probably go next weekend! A lot of winterizing, just in case, as sometimes winters can be brutal here, with lake effect and all! Stay healthy all!

    I didn't have a clock. I found this on Amazon and took the back off. I drilled a 1.5" hole between the gouges and vent. Siliconed it in. Now I have a clock.

    So, still didn't get back to hunting camp and finish up the projects out there, and bring the mini back home! Took care of some leaves yesterday, as the weather is cooling down. Today, the weather was a mixture of rain, in the am, spots of sun, clouds, with overcast, and high winds bringing in some lake effect snow! The ground is to warm for it to stick, and were supposed to head back up to the 60's, during the week. Will head back up to camp on the weekend and finish up some projects! Getting the garage cleaned up, before I bring the mini home. Got a few projects planned for it, this winter! Take care all!

    Believe it or not, I used spray paint for the base coat. I ended up using Rustoleum Midnight Black Metallic. I did 3 coats of Rustoleum primer then 3 coats of base coat, wet sanding in between each. After that was done I borrowed my buddies spray gun and watched a youtube video on how to set it up. Purchased clearcoat from the local auto body paint supply place and sprayed it. Today I got the whole cab buffed and polished and fixed the yellowing lenses on my headlights. The Gun I borrowed was a basic Gun from Canadian tire.

    Got back late last night! Brought the Mini back with us! Got a lot done, and finished up! Just simply gorgeous weather right now! A lot of Corn is being picked up right now as all the Farmer's are working their Combines like crazy! They'll probably pick ours up this week some time. A lot of talk around about the Big Bucks, everyone keeps seeing, on our property! Every year we hear this, as we have one of the larger tracks of land with rolling, wooded hills, bottom land, thick with cover, that goes down to the Conneaut Creek! It's called a Creek, but it is actually a River that starts at Lake Erie, in Ohio, and winds through Pennsylvania, and back to Lake Erie! The Original property has been in the Family since the 50's. Turned down another offer, from an older couple looking for a place to retire, off the beaten path! Years ago, one of the old timers, that has since passed, had a Sugar House, where they boiled Sap, and made Maple Syrup on the property! The old foundation, is still there, but the Sugar House has been down for years! We have a lot of nice Hardwoods, that we manage on the property! We are currently contracting on a parcel to remove about 1200 trees this winter, when the ground is frozen, with Horses, as it'll do less damage to the property, and be the least evasive! There's always something to do! Enjoy all!

    That sounds like a great place, it's really nice when property can be kept in the family for generations.

    So this weekend two things happened. 1, it snowed a solid 12" on Saturday so I got to try out my new Pirelli winter tires and lift kit. It did awesomely and was really fun ripping around the unplowed streets before others had a chance. 2, I figured out how to finally get my remote starter and power locks wired up. The starter was a little bit of a pain in the butt finding the correct wire to use for the Tach learn. It turned out to be the negative side of the injector. I'm guessing this would be the same place to install a Tach then as well. I also got the power locks wired up to the remote starter module so everything works from one remote. As usual, it was a busy weekend with the Mini.

    I made it to the hardware store and bought 4@80-lbs bags of SackCrete, for ballast when I run the plow. Figured out that bags of sand cost more per bag, and take more bags because they weight fifty pounds, and the SackCrete weighs in at 80-lbs per bag. Figure they will get a bit of moisture on them over the winter, and set up. Then I can just reuse them indefinitely.

    Plow goes on this weekend.
