    For better living, gracious giving!

    I scratched my head trying to think where I could find just the right box I needed. Everywhere I looked, I saw skinny boxes and fat boxes, tall boxes and short boxes, but I just couldn't find the box for me!!! WTF I say. In a panic, I did what I tend to do best. I made one! I grabbed the box I thought fit best and shaped it to be my own, not even thinking about what was the box was...It was a special box!

    Going into the box was the simplest of all items, a waterbar in dire need of a beading and new paint job. The bar is going to CrazyA, who offered to blast it for free for me just pay shipping. What caught my eye about this box was the fact that it said, "For Better Living, Gracious Giving" on the side of it, which I did not notice untill I cut the thing all up and constructed it to the right size.
    I immediately thought of the gracious giving CrazyA offered to me (no matter how big or small), along with ALL the gracious givings this community offers to its members. It's the shit. It doesn't get any better. Keeping it real is what you all do, and we all win in the end. Life is great, and just remember when your time comes to pay it forward (and it will) DO IT, because it WILL PAY YOU BACK.

    Thank you CrazyA.

    "great minds think alike!"

    Thanks for the kind words Crystal, but I'm really a tiny fish trying to give back just a fraction of what I've taken over the years. This place (and everyone in here) rocks... all of 'em. They're a much bigger help than I.

    Your waterbar showed up today. It's all set and will go out Monday. I pulled the plug and buffed it up too.

    I always hit bare aluminum with some "etch" primer before painting.

    Reinstall with new gaskets and 242 blue on the bolts to 108 in. lbs.
