re: Installing car stereo - How To - Chris4x4gill2
What did the guy have in it that he took out? Any head unit would have some type of wiring harness with power,ground, speaker wires, etc. Usually an aftermarket head unit will have to have an adapter spliced on to match the factory connection. Look for a flat plug with 12 or so wires that's not conn...

re: Replacing vinyl on boat seats - Chris4x4gill2
Installing new skins isn't hard. An air stapler is a good thing to have and use Monell/stainless staples. Just remove the original vinyl, have it copied at an upholstery shop and ask them to leave plenty of extra so you can get a good grip to stretch it. After its stapled in place you trim the e...

re: The messes your pup has made? - Chris4x4gill2
Great Dane we had ate the door frame on the back door because we put her outside. She wasn't a puppy then though. A friend of mine has a boxer that will chew on anything it can get in its mouth. It ate the brake lines off of the jeep he had parked in the back yard. ...

re: Anybody have a truck cover for your pickup? Recommendations - Chris4x4gill2
I'm not well versed in vehicle covers, but Evolution is a top brand of boat cover and they are made to be towable at highway speeds so you know the durability is there. They are a boat cover manufacturer but they do take custom orders so it might be worth contacting them. Maybe they have a car divis...

re: What is eating the planted corn in my garden? - Chris4x4gill2
probably squirrels. They know those little green flags all mark a corn kernel and will pull them up as fast as they can. I've known of people to spread corn (feed corn) on top of the ground in the same are so the squirrels eat that instead of pulling up the shoots. In a week or so more the seed corn...

re: Dimming lights when I run power tools - Chris4x4gill2

re: Anybody use a pegboard in their shop? - Chris4x4gill2
I use it above my work bench and in the barn. Above workbench was a painted plywood wall so I just cut PVC to use as spacers and screwed it directly to the plywood wall with the pvc between the pegboard and the wall. The barn is cement block walls so I used tapcons to mount 1x2's and then scr...

re: stump near foundation - Chris4x4gill2
Locally owned equipment rental place. I don't know what you would have local. The place we used would let me rent it for Saturday, but since they were only open for a half day and closed on Sunday, I didn't have to have it returned until Monday morning. Essentially got a weekend rental for a 1 da...

re: stump near foundation - Chris4x4gill2
Sounds like prices in your area are about the same as I have found here. It seems like they want $500 to just show up for 1 or 2 stumps, but once they are on site the biggest exspense is already covered. Last time we had a bunch I rented the grinder and did it myself. I think I paid $150 for a w...

re: How often do you sell a boat? - Chris4x4gill2
[quote]I agree, but a lot of those wakeboats hit a point where depreciation really amplifies, so I think it's definitely best to sell before then. Compare a 2 year old G23 to a 6 year old SAN 230. Or the new generation X-Stars to an 8 year old X-star. There's some magic number in there (hours, not ...

re: How often do you sell a boat? - Chris4x4gill2
I see a lot of guys in the wakeboat world advocate the trade every year strategy too. They argue that the MSRP on new keeps going up and by doing so, the previous years model holds its value. This may have some merit when your talking $120K boats, but those kinda prices are out of my league. The...

re: How often do you sell a boat? - Chris4x4gill2
I keep mine until it no longer meets my needs. Using your example, first year ]depreciation of $15k vs 7 yrs at $50K. If you traded yearly you would be down $15k x7yrs = 105K for the same time period vs 50K for buy and keep. Its close to buying cars, your heaviest depreciation is on the fron...
