    I replaced all the door lock actuators in my Excursion today. Now I can get in my back seat without reaching in and manually unlocking the door. Then started polishing the rims on my t-bucket.

    I did some minor dead limb trimming underneath my Japanese maple and weeded underneath it, and dug up a bunch of monkey grass and a pile of day lilies with a mattock. That maple is my stationary pet, it gets lots of attention.

    Got the cage out of my TJ today. That was a job. I’ll be going back with a factory cage tomorrow if I have time. Should go in a lot faster than this one came out. Then putting some corner armor on to cover existing dents, flush LED tail lights, few other odds and ends.

    Then on to mounting the console in the YJ, swapping a radio in the XJ along with a new brake caliper.
    My list is shrinking and my wife is wanting to add to it!

    Well, main part of my deck is done. Then I fell and sprained my wrist. Thank I came down with covid-19 symptoms and had to get tested and now I am quarantined in my room. :(

    Saw this in my buddy’s neighborhood the other day. Mulch yard must’ve been running a coronavirus special.

    I was able to replace all 5 in about an hour. I only had to remove the door panels and handles. The rear hatch was the easiest to get to but a pain to get back on. I bought all new Ford parts from Tasca Ford after reading some sketchy reviews of the cheap ones.

    Now have a full bucket of 223 ready to load. Just a few left to process and clean then I will start loading them.

    My home office is off our den. My kids are watching "Franklin and the Green Knight"; I haven't poked my head out to look, but this freaking movies sounds INTENSE.

    We need better pics of that contraption so we can roast it!
    Looks home made of a variety of build materials.

    It is a Dillon 1050 with a Mark7 autodrive. It is a piece of art running.

    Right now I am decapping, decrimping, sizing, and trimming. Then in will clean them all. Switch the head on the press with a head set up to prime, powder, drop the bullet , and seat it.

    @tsconver

    I have press envy :eek:. I'm just running an old Dillon 550b that I've had for years when I shot USPSA. Getting back into the reloading game(again). Still have a lot of my powders/bullets/primers plus plenty of cases. At my best I could put out 400rounds of 45acp in an hour...

    It is a beast. Got it used after the big ammo crunch a few years back. Added the drive to it. Sure beats pulling the handle. also got this for precision loads

    Hope you paid scrap value for it. Looks pretty "custom". I didn't know there were rat rod trailers. :p
