Bentley Gets A New Home (Sort Of...)
Yup, found a new home for Bentley. After scouring the area for outdoor storage and finding none, a friend from school lets
me know that he and his mom bought the empty lot next to his mom's house, and has graciously agreed to let me rent a small
corner of the parcel.
Why the new home? Well, most (or many) of you know how Beastie was broken into and I've never felt secure working there
since. Even getting Bentley with his armor and security I still felt like I was being watched and just couldn't get into my "groove"
when in the back of my mind I'm worrying about my workshop's security. ANYWAY... on top of that, my gf who runs the storage
lot is leaving her employer, and to keep it short n' sweet, they suck!!!! With her leaving, who knows what I'll get in a manager.
It's better to just find a new home-preferably one with something more than a shallow non-existent ditch that can be easily crossed
as so-called "security" that the owners refuse to acknowledge and correct the problem.
With the new home found, and Ken a newly acquired 8cylinder truck I thought for sure I was all set-NOPE! Went to hook up
Bentley, and lo' n' behold, the truck sits too low-we'd never make it out of the storage unit. So, we thought maybe the Envoy could
do it just one more time - another NOPE! With all the tables and walls built inside, it's now too heavy for the Envoy
to pull... *sigh* so, for now, until I get a truck that sits higher I'm just a bit on the screwed side. I'm thinking that in part, Kens' truck
can't do it because of the springs and shocks being of a lower setting (for lack of a better term) or too "worn in". Not sure what we're
gonna do; if we really want to put a lift and heavy shocks and springs into it when I just got him the truck, and found out that I was
majorly lied to, and had to fork out $800 for a new rear end for it (and this after my discount). I tried to find a used one everyone,
and found out there were none to be had. Even the new one was on national backorder. What a p.i.t.a!
SO thought I was gonna get back into my shop and get my creativity juices flowing... but alas, It's just not to be as of yet...
but, keeping positive, I know it's gonna happen. Just an update. Hope everyone is well.
