    As long as they are cool about it I actually like that they are paying attention to stuff. Better than giving tickets for mud flaps or tint or setting up a speed trap. Our locals are alright, but one day I got hassled for my temporary plates not being visible and my only thought was... I'm one of the only people that drives the speed limit and stops for stop signs. Get off my ass. Then again they don't really hassle me in my regular vehicle. In assuming they recognize it. They do give me a funny look sometimes when I'm riding at 3am on the bike trail. No hassles, just looks. Fine by me.
    My point- at least they are paying attention and now they'll hopefully just wave and keep going when they see you.

    I've always taken my paper or cardboard temporary plates & mounted them where the plate goes unless the instructions say otherwise. I figure if it melts in the rain or blows away - well that's not my issue (although i do keep the receipt for payment & plate # in the glove as a back-up). My current state seems to have figured out how to give you a metal plate in exchange for taking your money.

    I can’t find the link in my orders, but it’s 3/8 deep made for 2-3mil material, it’s kinda of textured. It’s held in pretty well except that one spot you can see drooping

    Spare tire crank.
    My 2003 has a multi part tool you thumbscrew together. Annoying! When I had a flat I absolutely could not lower the spare with that tool.

    Is there a year that has a 1 part crank?

    For curiosity - I just took the 1-part crank tool from the 2002 Tacoma & tried it on the 2003 Tundra. It worked. And the crank worked - tire actually came down. Woot.

    Not easy enough to install down there. I did think of it. The rubber sheet metal edging shit should work fine.

    Hmm before I forget, who’s got a recommendation for a storage box to put at the front of my bed, that’s still easy removable

    I’m running two of these Plano boxes with a cargo bar holding them back. Two boxes fit wide with just enough room to open them up.

    Its nothing fancy but they look good vs regular plastic totes. The rubber pad is so I don’t kill my knees crawling back there.

    Storage is use for recovery gear and fluids mostly

    I meant the automotive stuff. Meant to help prevent doors chipping when opening the door lol. Parts stores carried it, haven't looked for it for a while.

    ^ this type of stuff.

    Yeah I didn't want it to wash away in the rain and the paper that comes with the temp states you can put it in the back window or anywhere else on the rear of the vehicle. It was clearly visible and the guy was just being an ass.

    mcmaster has what you need. I use them to find a part and then try to find it cheaper somewhere else. Sometimes you can and sometimes you can't

    My knees need that stuff. Thanks for the idea!

    Bought some UNtreated 2x4-8’ for.... $8 a stick the other day. Last year before Scary Hit it was avg. $2-2.50 a stick. Nuts!

    Saved those temporary 2x’s from that last job last month and glad I did because I was able to reuse them on the back porch Column Replace at the Govnas Plantation.

    2 Fiberglass Columns cost $700! plus another $150 in adhesives/fasteners. Getting out of Hand.

    Yeah. Well, we did feed the termites for a few years. Bondo releases toxins into the air and besides its not a permanent repair. Normally, I’d use a Structural Epoxy (super high dolla/permanent) for smaller repairs before it gets to bad. In this case, the $$$ said it was better to buy new.

    Honestly - I'm thinking the smart money is to sell my fixer as a fixer. Hop in the RV & hit the gubmint land w/ some internet. Work from home is a reality, work from RV on government land - same thing. Just trying to decide if hopping off the treadmill results in being left too far behind inflation.
