it's for a stationary air conditioner. there's no traffic across the surface. i dragged a broom across it. it looks pretty. at least it did until the canopy dripped.

according to my retired neighbor expert, it's the proper way to finish the surface, besides getting a vinyl sealant, which isn't really worth it to me. it's a 4" thick pad(on the heavy side of 4-4.5") on 5-10" of triple-compacted crushed rock. if it moves, i've got much bigger issues. like militant ants.





yes, i keep the CO with new batteries, even hold the test button every once in a while to make sure it still hurts my ears. i'm planning on loading up on soapy water, and will be checking, rechecking, rerechecking and rererechecking everything.

did my dryer a while back. still checking for leaks just in case!



i've got this stuff to seal it. it's like wd-40 for thread seals. works everywhere, and if it leaks, disassemble, add more.

the shutoff and all the fittings appear to all be in place. there's a union between the shutoff and the water heater, so i shouldn't even need to do anything upstream of the shutoff.

i read the manual! 55' max vent distance, currently 44' with bend extension calc, 1/8" rise over 10'.

crooked pipes are easy. it's making them straight that gets difficult!
Canopy over the setting concrete, good idea! Not checking the canopy bad idea!!

Brushed concrete great idea but not for equipment bases as it can become a moss trap... But I'm sure your neighbour will have ideas of getting round shit collecting or growing in the little valleys..

As for mowing the lawn, are you sure it wasn't @Tcoat doing his neighbourly thing.. mostly likely wanting a Hokane respray in 10years time?

No self-quarantine directives in place in Illinois?

I mean regardless I'd have been doing this quarantine or not. I just want to finally do what I've been wanting to do for the longest time.

Tracking sounds cool, but the consumables cost more than I want to spend. Think I'm going to be 100% on autox for the next couple years, and depending how this year goes with my competitiveness, I may end up starting to build towards a class.

I got chucked into C-modified class (think big power cars, like the STi, Camaro V8, Mustang V8, etc) due to having a tune, so the first order of business is probably going to be going back to stock header (with the cat punched out, so I can cheat). Then I need to find out if a 4.88 FD is allowed in A-mod, which is where I'd be most competitive.

All the autocross around me seems to be cancelled.

With some of the restrictions loosening up, there's a chance that the autox group i run with will have events resume. I think the big hangup at the moment for resumption of the series is the venue. It takes place at a casino, and as far as I know, they're 100% shut down, driveways barricaded, the whole 9 yards.

Then there's the whole social distancing aspect which is going to make things super difficult in terms of running the events. So we'll see, nothing official on the organizers side yet, just whispers about possibilities.

Yeah... I would need a helmet anyway, now that you mention it. Moved assuming I would be able to make up for the lack of good driving roads with autocross. Oh well...

Huh... You would think there would be plenty of empty parking lots available. Good luck with that getting going.

A dumb as it sounds they were pretty common around here at one point. Think they pretty much bolted onto the old bronco frame. Don't know why else so many would have done it.

Typo is not a grammar issue. It is just sloppy.
