That's great. I'm starting to think just automatically replacing the rad cap annually is a very good idea

Maybe a company like Bulletproof, or the other fellow that makes the Billet top tank should make a setup that uses a normal rad cap that lasts and not this piece of s*** that Ford puts on there that fails every 6 months

Damn @backhoebill I have a whole new respect for your job! How do handle the stress when digging around a house? I had to dig down around the foundation to bury some insulated PEX for my outdoor boiler install. I had a porch to the right and a satellite dish to the left, I had to back up a little to swing the machine to dump my bucket, being an amateur it was kinda stressful to not take out the dish. Anyhow, got it done, I used a 7" core drill to get thru the sandstone basement wall. Oh and after digging down the foundation I had to join that to the trench that I had coming from the boiler, I couldn't straddle the trench because of the pipe, so I just got my track as close as possible to the trench to try keeping it looking like a tench and not just a dig. Wrestling that 4 line PEX in HD 6" corrugated tile is a bear! Glad I have a big strong teenager to help.
Made the yard an absolute mess, our soil is the stickiest clay I've ever messed with, your boots accumulate about 10 lbs a piece almost soon as you step in it.

Back down to LA last night, this time not for fun stuff .
Road was closed to reno so we just turned around and drove after we ended up having to chain the mercedes. You can imagine how that went, I have about a $5,000 insurance claim after the chains slapped my quarter panels and need a re paint.

But the Mercedes made it from my house to Corona, with fuel to spare after just about spot on 500mi. Sure couldnt do that in any vehicle I've ever owned. . 40mpg avg going 75-85mph

Chains hitting panels = not installed properly/not tight enough/driving too fast with them on. If you drive 50 feet and retighten them you eliminate nearly all the problems. The other thing that works really good is a 1 inch ratchet strap across the center of the wheel to suck out any slack

On as tight as they go with the tensioners. It was the little tail I guess I'd call it. Its the piece with the notches that select how tight. So I was on the tightest setting and it would not stay wrapped up with as close as my tires are to the fender wells.
I knew I shouldn't have but it was one of those situations. Oh well. that's what insurance is for.

I drove forward and adjusted, etc. Never above 25mph with them, and I'm no stranger in these parts to them unfortunately, @john galt can attest lol

I see, next time throw a couple zip ties in the bag so you can zip tie the tail on.

They are good for more than just putting on John Galt's drive shaft when he isn't looking ;-)
