Finished replacing the electrical connector on my Hannigan fairing with a mil-spec version: McMaster-Carr #'s 8903T46 and 8903T16. The female (8903T46) was installed inside yesterday after carrying the fairing inside and the male on the wiring from the headlamp today. All connections were soldered and covered with PVC heat shrink tubing.

Pleasant day in the shop

Adjusted the valves on my XR650L, Washed and waxed the KTM 990A and put it on a tender, Pulled the post hole digger off the tractor and cleaned it up for winter storage, greased the backhoe, topped off the fluids and put it on a battery tender.

Had a couple oc cups of coffee, a tin of sardines and some crackers. It was a good day.

Last night, removed the summer wheels with performance tires from my wife's AMG, and put on the winter wheels with snow tires.

Storm expected tonight.

You drive an AMG, at all, in the snow? What do you do to remove road salt?

Just live with it, is what we do. Wash when able. It's by no means a garage queen.

Thanks! but I did not take them, they are from the vendors site, my own photographic skills are very limited...the dampers themselves are even more beautiful in person but I probably won't see them again until the forks need rebuilding...got the dampers from http://www.lansdowne-engineering.com/

Haven't been in the garage today, got up and went to work. It's lunchtime now though...

Went in there yesterday, and all that happened was I got myself a beer outa the fridge.

Need to get out there though, got work to do.

Changed a fuel injector on my Expedition. I love having heat in there now!

Next up is rebuilding the 78 polaris colt. Then the RZ500, then the XT 550.
