After a little blood sweat and beers (after work of course) whole lot of fiberglass, bondo, some welding and paint, two old trucks look much more better.

Unfortunately a year later had to do again because someone wouldn’t let me do it right the first time.

HONDAS needed some attention, 2005 models, one needed rear brakes repaired, other needed front wheel bearing, front 4wd clutch unit replaced, after a day on the phone the 4wd parts started at $1150.00 locally to  $390.00 from a distributor, works great.

I said the sun would destroy that new black paint on plastic, that’s why Honda don’t sell or recommend paint for them, could have built a quick shed for them but someone decided to let the sun ruin them instead, now they look just awful a year later.

Pulled this old wind bird thing out of the bushes that had been knocked around for decades, pulled the vines off discovered it was a hand made copper and brass priceless piece of art that needed fixing.
