Foggy at Jenner
It was foggy as I drove into Jenner this morning and put my boat in the water. It was a little windy too, so there weren’t many people using the water.
Fog cleared out
Lots of birds today
That was as far up the river as I went, then I crossed over to the other side to check out what bird life was in that area.
A little walk
I eventually ran out of birds on that side so I crossed back over the river and went to shore here to look for berries, but didn’t find any as they are all gone now, it seems. But I did have a nice little walk.
From there, I headed on back to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
Wrong screw at Monte Rio auto parts
I did stop at the auto parts store in Monte Rio to try and get a TBI screw for my injectors. The guy checked the screw I brought down for a sample and supposedly matched up a screw to it, but when I got home and checked it, the thread was not right. So, to keep from wasting a bunch more time hunting one of those screws I got on line and ordered a screw kit from Amazon. Three screws and a gasket, seventeen dollars. A bargain actually.
Mounting the seat belt mounts
After a nap, I went out to work on the van project. I wanted to get the seat belt mounts mounted so I drilled some holes in the support braces I made and mounted them here. I hope they will work out this way, if not, I’ll change something as I have a couple more options.
And a cover for the hole I made
I needed a cover for the hole I made to get the computer wires through the engine compartment, so I made this out of a piece of plastic barrel I had cut up to make my fan shroud several months ago. It’s to seal it off to keep the heat out and more importantly to keep those pesky little mice out. The cover is that orangey looking thing there, behind the seat belt latch.
I did some more painting, giving things a second and third coat of paint and took the rest of the day off.
