This I just don't understand; we pay 23% tax!!!Your metal prices beat my 95 per pound for new.
Steel is a competitively produced commodity; even with tariffs [I don't know if that story is still ongoing], there's no way you should be paying double what I pay.
We had a few days of rain [Yay!]
So I asked the fire department if I can burn my wood pile tomorrow; they said I can.
It's got a couple of tons of pine logs in there. It will be a biggy.
The Mercedes has a leak at the top of the fuel tank, so I have the rear up and stands. It seems I have to take the rear end out, as well as the drive shaft + exhaust system.
If I'm going that far, I figure I should do the clutch too [it slips just a tiny bit when hot].
But for that I need another pair of jackstands; being a cheapo SOB, I didn't want to pay 60 Euros.
They're not getting 60 Euros out of me!
So I made them yesterday. Only 20 Euros worth of material and 4 hours work.
And they aren't painted yet.
