I assume that many members here are doing lots of small, but interesting things throughout the days.
While those things might not warrant a 1000 page thread I thought it would be fun to have a thread that people could post the small things.
Be it a job done on a bike, or car, or just something fun you did.

Me?
I took the CB1100F for a state inspection.
Also waxed it, adjusted the timing chain, and a few small squawks that it had.





What did you guys do over the weekend?

Yep, its a 1983 double cab short bed 1 ton. Originally a USDA truck from the start, it only has 56,xxx miles on it. I used a roller and Oliver tractor green implement paint on it because that old dodge paint just flakes off.

I went for a nice long ride in the country with my wife.
She just got her motorcycle license, so she was on the old cb350, and I was on my Guzzi.
We rode over 200 miles into the mountains of East TN and back home.
I'm glad she had such a great time. :)

P.s., This thread was a good idea! The jeep and vw forums I'm on all have something similar.

I replaced an airbag sensor on my truck, holding the bad one, looks like water got in it and froze.

Been getting an "8F" code from my peake obd2 scanner for my e39. ECU/DME has a multi-speed fan module that either gets corrosion at the plug, or doesn't work at a certain speed setting. Gotta get to it, clean the contacts and hope I don't have to replace it. Gonna need new tires and suspension refresh. Not lookin forward to that...

Buckets - more pics of the Westy!
Skypuncher - you too! Full pic of the Dodge!

Finishing the 4.3 V6 I/O install and the rigging of this turd that I started 20+ years ago, which means I'm spending the day searching for nuts, bolts, clevis pins etc. Running a new harness, steering system, engine controls, gauges etc etc. all the time wondering why....

Figured I add this for the Dodge truck fans on this thread. Bought this about 12 years ago from an estate sale. Love this thing and it just keeps on going. When I first got it, it was missing about half of it's horsepower, but a new timing chain brought it back to life. Other than that it's been bullet proof.

Today, I'm sitting in a truck stop in Carlisle PA trying to figure out why there was a pool of grease under the pasta in my chicken Alfredo...tomorrow will be another day.

Is that a T/A? If so, that Alfredo is bottomless.
Have fun stopping up those arteries...

Extracted a large mouse nest, packed in tight between my trucks engine block and the 2 turbo chargers. :I think I may have just prevented a roadside fire.
