I paid $20 for a patch, and I think this is a plug. I put the purple paint on because I actually dug the screw out. EDIT: I wasn’t aware of the plug/patch combo, that’ll do.

And I still don’t have time to showcase it all. So here is 1 of 2 XJs I got. Plus my first TOMY!

Diecast deals.  Diecast deals.

I’ve been looking for - four for a few months now and I got -these- all within the last 2 weeks for about $20 each. Edit: I need to do some more research, I got years mixed up and bought the wrong Porsche, although the 25/26 are awesome, I’ll be keeping them.

So I’ve been meaning to do a mini series of just a dashcam view of driving through the DD intersection near my house. I feel like they do save time verses a traditional highway interchange. Today it wasn’t too backed up, but since there are two turn lanes most everyone uses the left and I use the right because.

It’s over. I started a plan before The names were drawn. And over the course of the month kept finding random stuff to stuff in the box. I finally picked up the POR15 for my axles, and a late night eBay purchase turned out to Be local, so I saved $9.95 on shipping. Hooray!

My dad now owns another suv along with a 2005 explorer they have probably put too much money into.
