I couldn’t get it going today
Today was one of those days when I just couldn’t seem to get it going. I hung out in the house for most of the day.
Sometime in the afternoon I finally got enough energy to do something.
I went outside and started the project I wanted to do today.
The brackets don’t work out
Unfortunately when I tried to mount the unit on the front of the van I didn’t like how it was working out so I sat down and thought about it for a bit.
The solution was to start over
The best solution seemed to be to start over and remake the brackets.
So I cut metal and welded metal and slapped some paint on it. The parts were hot from welding them so they were a bit on the hot side so the paint sizzled a bit, but dried quickly.
Drained the van’s coolant
While the paint was drying I got under the van and drained the radiator coolant as it needed done to cut the system into the radiator.
I also removed the spare tire so I could work on mounting the unit easier.
Once the paint was dry I tried mounting the unit again and was much happier with how it turned out.
That was it for the day
By now the day was cooling down so I put things away and retired to the house for the rest of the day.
I need to get some new heater hoses so I couldn’t do much else anyway.
That was it for me today.
