Fifty amp generator cable hookup
After much thought, I decided to paint the new white van rims, black, like they used to be. I sorta liked the white ones, but they just seemed too flashy and distracted from the van’s nice paint job. :O)
I’d made this cardboard cutout to keep the paint off the tires, but it didn’t work because the tires were wider than the rims so it just didn’t fit. But the paint is black and so are the tires, so it worked fine without the cutout.
There, that’s better. Some say I need a fancy, dancey, paint job. But no, I like to be able to crash through the brush when need be and not be concerned about the paint. I like to just use a spray can to patch things up when need be. Battle scars. That brown one on the side there, is when the van tangled with one of those metal yellow poles they put around gas pumps at gas stations.
Cracked up rubber bushings
While crawling under the van, I noticed this spring shackle’s rubber bushings had cracked up and needed replacing, so I need to get some new ones, hopefully stronger than these ones. I was a bit rough on them the last trip I took.
