It gives the garage floor character. You could put down a stencil with more paint and make it look like a design.

Checked CB tune. It's still in tune. I have a SWR meter if anyone ever needs to use it.

Practiced my amateur soldering skills to replace a bad light socket in my right fender flare. Socket was backordered so long I forgot for a while I had ordered it. Now all lights work again.

Thinking of starting to change some over to LED, starting with dim reverse lights.

Pqinted skid plates, greased some johnny joints, and took some parts off the engine so I can clean it so it can get covered in oil again. Also turns out the belt has been holding the alternator in place for sometime now since the lower bracket broke.
