    Dry storage for a pallet could be an issue. I could probably find room at the shop and then bring home a bag or two at a time. It does bring the price down a bit when you do buy a pallet at a time.

    Well I finally got tired of paying high prices for propane to keep my trailer warm. I couldn't afford to keep it as warm as I would like to have. So I picked up a used pellet stove and moved the furniture around a bit and I now have warm trailer! .

    Project EOS

    Didn't get a lot done today. I cleaned up a few parts and smoothed out the top of the Pistons where the valves made contact with them, got rid of the Sharp edges. Ordered new valves the other day so as soon as they get in the head will go and get taken care of.

    The chain guide was broken and allowed to much slack in the timing chain and the end result is 8 bent intake valves. I will clean the head up and pull the intake valves and see if there is any damage to the head. Then I guess it will go to the machine shop and get surfaced and the new intake valves put in.

    2002 rebuilt title

    To me there is a big difference between a rebuilt title and a salvage title. I will consider a rebuilt title long before a salvage title car. To me a salvage title to me is just a parts car with no intention of it being a driver.

    Travel trailer got vandalized

    The manufacturers would change the master key every couple of years, I have 6 and go back over 20years.

    Well the head is almost off, I have pictures but they are to big to post. I'm waiting for a couple of specialty tools so I can finish taking this thing apart. I can say with 100% certainly that every intake valve is bent, I can see them all open looking into the ports. It hasn't been that tough of a job, the turbo manifold and some small fasteners in that are were a bit difficult to get to. The water pump design is like nothing I have ever seen on a VW, this thing is mounted towards the back of the block and is driven by a small cogged belt off the balance shaft. It's made out of plastic and is pron to cracking and failure. While I have it apart I will replace it with a new all aluminum unit.

    Nothing wrong with rails in the bed.

    I went and got my registration done on the car today, 2hrs at the DMV. I was lucky and parked just outside the door and I could see the now serving number sign. So I sat in the warm Denali and played with the dog and surfed the net. Now to order some more that I needed proof of ownership. Tomorrow I'm going to the shop no matter how much snow is on the ground!

    5ver hitch for 6'4" bed?

    I think a slider hitch would be worth the money considering the amount of damage a cab into a fifth-wheel wheel can cause.
