Sometime WAY back, I detailed here the work that I needed to accomplish as relates to the several (many) vehicles we have. As part of our Great Escape in 2016, we plan to sell these vehicles, all of which are marketable. For reference, I’m talking about a vintage Jeep Cherokee, a Mazda Miata sports car, a Ford Expedition and a vintage Honda Goldwing motorcycle and matching trailer.
When I first wrote about these vehicles several months ago, except for the Miata, ALL were in some stage of repair. The motorcycle needed completion of the installation of new front fork seals and bushings, the brakes needed repair and/or bleeding (they weren’t working) and there was some suspicion that the on-board air compressor for the air suspension might not be working.
The vintage Jeep Cherokee (1991) was in need of a harmonic dampener, installation of the starter and whatever else required to get it started. Likewise, the Expedition had the Check Engine light on and had a rough idle. And, along the way, the air suspension compressor blew up.
And of course, all this work was required to be done during the time I was also designing and building the motorhome’s solar system, AND starting a interior remodel. The remodel is still begging the question “Why?” since the interior was really fine.
Well, I’m here to report that MUCH has been accomplished. And, frankly, I’m not sure how I managed to get so much done. The motorcycle is complete and in great conditon. The Expedition is fixed and running great, the Miata is presently on Craigslist for sale, and Most of the work is done on the Jeep…almost ready to see if it will start. And, if you have read my Solar Project page, “we have solar”. Woohoo!.
Now about that remodel…twin beds from uncomfortable queen, and vinyl plank flooring and new carpet throughout. 🙂
