  1. Replacing tires 2016 TC

    I tried these Toyo Extensa A/S tires and was quite impressed with how smooth they rode and how quiet they were. Don't think they are available in the stock 215/55R16 size though. I used 225/55R16 instead which is very close. The Continentals didn't stay on long enough to wear out but tires seldom do on my vehicles.
  2. I'm not a fan of hubcaps either, but almost anything is an improvement over bare steel factory wheels. And a helluva lot cheaper than a new set of wheels. Oh, and there are places around here where they STILL hang the hubcaps on fences.

    When the Amish start dropping ludes with Mr. Cosby I'd say there might be reason for concern. Until then, not so much.
  4. WTS: Adrian Steel Partition $200

    Is it mandatory over there to KEEP it in the van? The VERY first thing I did to my truck was to take it out. I do however fully understand the benefits of having it in but I don't use the van for work nor do I transport any animals. It tends to restrict vision quite a bit.
  5. All Season Tires

    I was asking about the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S...specifically. Or trying to anyway.
  6. All Season Tires

    Reading through this thread I would say that's a no on the tires.
  7. They can keep them. I would never pay a "core charge" on a piece of plastic. Nucking futz.

    Appreciate it much.
  9. All Season Tires

    Does anyone have any experience with these BF Goodrich tires? Light snow use is what I'm mainly interested in. We don't get an enormous amount of snow in VA, but some. Snow tires are generally an ugly sort with limited sizes but these are pretty good looking tires and I can get the size I want. BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S Yeah, I know it is almost July.
  10. Good news for Luddites

    Uh-huh, that's a helluva lot more trust than I got............

    I like those. Mind if I ask where you got those from specifically? I know there are plenty out there but I tend to like to use something I've already seen installed. Looks like you did a great job!
  12. Painting body moldings

    Yep, no biggie. Except we are headed to North Carolina this evening. Its a working vacation and I don't want to get distracted from working on the Sunnyside Beach Cottage Retirement Home. It's finally coming together after about five years working on it.
  13. Painting body moldings

    Got enough paint to do the moldings just above the taillights. Will start with those first since they are relatively small and I can see how I like the results. Need a couple of days curing time where the van isn't moving so it will need to wait until we get back from OBX for the 4th. Love a road trip.
  14. Put the pigeons in a baking dish, with the strip of bacon over each. Place them in a hot (500 degrees F) oven and bake for 5 minutes. Blend the butter and flour over low heat, then add the stock, Kitchen Bouquet, and seasoning and stir until smooth. Add the pigeons and the onions. Let simmer for one hour over very low heat. Then put the pigeons and sauce in a pie dish, cover with a pastry crust, and bake at 500 degrees F for about 12 minutes.

    Here in VA we would just take the doors OFF......call it "going native".
