Sorry guys, @soundman98 , my bad, I was confused.

I went out and checked my fuse box and after I scraped a little on my "yellow" wires, I discovered they were "white" wires that were kind of burnt looking, cracked and yellowed.

it started simple.

i noticed a sheet of conveyor belt material sticking up under my a/c unit that was in the middle, on top of a few random paver blocks, and the belting was beneath a bed of wood chips. i decided i wanted to remove all of it, and pour a cement pad for the a/c unit to sit on. simple enough.

after moving the a/c off the random-and-sinking pavers, i removed the conveyor belt material, and the wood chips.

then i found a sinking/deteriorating a/c pad buried beneath all of it.

after i removed that, i found what was left of landscape rock that was quickly turning into loose sand.

so i removed that too.

now i'm 10" down to fresh dirt. when i all i really wanted was to 3-4"...

and my truck is 1" off the bump stops. some people pay big money for that cali lean. i accidentally shoveled.

someone's making an FR LS-powered drift delorean, so you'd be right for that car..

lick it. if it doesn't tickle, just tastes funny, it's a neutral.

if it tickles, and tastes funny, it's a hot.

if it tastes like dirt, it's a ground.

hopefully the rest of the story is boring.

current plan is:
dump dirt.

get gravel.

spread gravel.

mix concrete.

pour concrete.

finish concrete.

be done before rain at 1pm.


yeah, i don't think i'm going to get that far either.

But, but, but, with the COVID19 threat, should I use a jumper wire and lick the other end of the wire -

Reminds me of the time my father was trying to start a engine on a grain elevator. He pulled off the spark plug wire and ask me to hold on to it to see if it was firing, as he pulled the starter robe. That only works once per kid -

OK, it's 10:45 pm, time to take the granddaughters to their home for the weekend.

This home schooling is getting stressful. For their PE they had to run around the block. Of course the 3 ager had to go too, just because. Which meant pa-pa had to go too. I'm too damn old for that shit.

Oh, ma-ma is starting to yell - better get them home - YIKES!

More and more I start to gravitate towards being able to track my car. Currently trying to put the last two sets of ARP extended studs on the rear wheels (having trouble BTW but just check the WHAT DID YOU DO thread).


Afterwards, I'm looking into LCAs and eventually an oil cooler. I've got a lot of time before quarantine is over, so hopefully before the end of the year I can finally take my FR-S to the track.

I've been telling people I'm trying to get 4 days worth of work done this weekend. I'm probably underestimating. I also need to change and re-vent a water heater somewhere in all this too.

Most nerve wracking part of that is the gas line.

Don't forget to cover setting concrete before the rain or before the local neighbourhood kids decide to leave their tags (historical significance)..
