Seat covers came today so spent a few hours installing them on the the seats. Not the first time I've done seat covers but they were still a bit stiff from shipping and cold temps.

Well I have begun the task of Progressive springs in the rear shocks. Spent more time making a homemade shock compressor so far than anything. This is not for the faint of heart I might add! Hopefully I'll get it all back together tomorrow when I am interrupted. I'll post when I get it all back together.

Last night I pulled my fuel pump out to calibrate the fuel level sender. I followed the advice I found on the forum and it was a surprisingly simple job- the hardest part was getting my hand into the gas tank hole.

I was surprised how MUCH I had to bend the float arm.
I was also pleasantly surprised at how clean my fuel tank is!!

Last Saturday I planned on doing nothing all day, and by noon, I was half way done!

I like that my old, ancient Suburban has 3 overhead buttons already.
20 seconds on the middle button to clear out all the old codes,

then 5 seconds next to a remote from any garage door or gate, and wallah! it is programmed and ready to go...

do you have a link for that nice little remote you got on eBay ?

Actually spent more time making a press to compress the shocks in than doing shocks. Takes about 20 minutes each to replace the spring and put back together. I didnt remove my bags did have to remove passenger floor boards and front mounting bolts for the bag frame. I would say it can easily be done in 3 hours total. I mounted the bottom of the shocks first then jacked the back tire just a bit and the top slid on the top mounts pretty easy. Then started all the bolts and nuts after that just tightened everything down. Be sure and check your boots on the shocks, you may wont new ones to replace during the rebuild. Also good thing is to replace the shocks seals on the bottom and o-rings on the air lines. Honda Direct has all the parts on line.

too cold to ride, so I played with a very old laptop, Itronix GoBook which was created for the Army's Abrams m1 tank.

it is as heavy as that tank too, but with Linux MX-17 on it, it is just as fast as my other laptops now.
