Paul Nice rig for sure? Have you come across a good herbicide that us (non-licensed) wanna-be farmers can use? Roundup and Paraquat are great pre-emergence products. 2-4-D and Banville work great post-emergence on broadleaves. But you needed a product such as Attrazine for post-emergence on grass's. And it's restricted, maybe even banned by now?. Requires an applicators license. I know there are newer products, but haven't kept up. And the applicators license and quantity/$$$$ required makes it very impractical. Have you found a majic potion? Jack

Jeff, It's a 9' boom and the garage door is a 10x8. I was able to walk it out without touching anything. The boom is in two pieces and removes with two 5/16" wingnuts. Brent, glad to hear at least you have a clean floor. Everytime I turn around, there's another oil slick. Sometime, though, take a look at Jeff's pics. He wins the award for a clean shop! No offense Jeff, a clean shop is a safe shop! Paul

Jack, I checked on Frontier. No way, I need a Qt. and only can get 2.5 gallon jugs at $100 per gallon. My solution is this: 1. Till early as weather conditions and soil moisture permit. Patch was plowed last fall. 2. Allow weeds and grasses to sprout. 3. Spray with Gordon Products Pronto (basically Roundup+2,4-D) 4. Plant the corn. 5. Follow with two more passes of Gordons LV400 a 2,4-D Ester, for broadleaf control. Hope that works!

Jeff, You have a Nova. What is the El Camino doing in your garage? And your lift was red. Real clean for sure! You can tell I haven't been around for a while.

OK, guys. So that really isn't my shop. I was pulling a "Dutch" on you. Hey, a guy can dream, can't he? Ever heard of a little show on TNN called "Crank & Chrome" - that happens to be Sam & Dave's shop. Just a little ST fun. ;o) Jeff

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
