Finished working on a couple of stereo speaker boxes
Removed some house siding to get ready for replacing a patio slider door unit.
Chopped and split firewood
Watched the movie * BRIGHT *
Found out my young nephew has been approached about partisipating in a 6 episode Mountain Biking Travel series for British Television. Its not a sure thing as details(funding?) are still being worked on.

Fixed one of my guitars today. The selector switch kept popping back when the neck pickup was selected and sometimes the bridge pickup wouldn't work at all. Found a replacement switch on the net and fitted it. Found a broken contact on the old switch when I removed it and assumed problem was solved. Neck pickup worked like a dream but still no bridge. Turned out I also had a cable fault as well as a faulty switch. Now rectified by replacing the cable and guitar back up to fighting strength. Took much longer than expected but it's done at last:)

Went to the pre-owned vehicular parts emporium (scrap yard) and got a replacement windshield wiper motor for the Ford Explorer, then installed it. (No Joy!), the wipers still don't work; rechecked the relays and fuses, 2x,, hot wired the wiper motor and got it to run from a battery; so its probably OK. Disassembled the steering column and checked the switch; seems good, then reassembled the column.....just about down to thinking it is the GEM (general electronic module?) Will try the GEM onboard diagnostic routine tomorrow...then disassemble the dash, to get the GEM part number before making another trip to the scrap yard. Will probably try replacing then jumping the control relays before calling in a Professional.

...I am learning to hate digital vehicles...

Enjoy!

Completely lost my marbles whilst browsing in book shop, bought two books that not only do I already own but have read in the last two years. I need to stop listening to the voice in my head.
Been there. Done that.
I know the voice in my head ain't real, but dang it, it has some really great idea's.
