Almost complete on a promise made for Mother's day.... LAST YEAR'S 😦
3 raised garden beds. Peppers, strawberries, squash, lemon grass, tomatoes, beets, zucchini.
And a yoga platform for sitting and contemplating the world. (my wife does that. I just sit and drink a beer after working on it)
For all of you desert dwellers... when do you finally give in and put the top back up to run the A/C ?
I've had it down for 4 months now, and I'm about ready to call it quits. The drive home at 100°F now is a tad too warm in the sun. Even with the AC blowing on me anyway.
Do any of you run...
Caving in a little. Just bought a new sunshade top for the JL.
I say: It's not expensive, and I didn't buy tires or lift, so I'm meeting my promise.
I feel like Bill Clinton: "I didn't have sexual relations with the woman" since we didn't do "that".
That GIF and commercial drives me nuts.
Knowing my hydraulics, he has about 8" of head on there, which is well under 1psi of water pressure. Not very convincing if you ask me.
Try doing that to a hose that has 30-40psi inside it. El tape-o won't stick-o!
I promised myself I would leave it generally stock (e.g. no lift tires or bumpers) until I wore out the stock KO2 tires.
I'm a little over a year in, 14000 miles, and I'm chomping at the bit now.
2"-3" lift, with 35's and some nice wheels, steel bumpers, winch, better rock rails, some more...
2nd stage of the switch was to demo out the old tank pedestal. Damn, they built that thing like fort knox! But it's out, and I'll get it sheetrocked up, cleaned, painted, and somehow try to match the garage floor treatment.
I'm feeling VERY lucky that the tank leak occurred on the back side...
We got the Nivean NPE 240A. Rated at 11gpm. But only at 5gpm @ 80F temp raise. That is still about 2 showers running at once. Any more and you'd see pressure dropping.
I think for our family, that won't be a problem. Although in holiday season, if we have family over or something, that may...
I'll have to see on performance. So far so good, but we've only had it up and running for a day. It has a built in re-circ pump if I wanted to do that. I'd need a valve at a distant part of the house, so for now we aren't using it. But the time to hot in the shower is the same. Nice to know...
To join in with the house improvement pain: Replaced 50gal water heater with a new tankless version yesterday.
Of course, only after the old one burst. So now I need to do some sheetrock repair and get some soggy insulation removed.
