Ok, tapped it out, put the stepdown bolt in and it all seems to be working great.


Came inside and my tv stopped showing video. Gotta give one to get one, I guess :-)

Don't buy one until you measure the wall space at the house.

May i suggest... "The Wall". 146" (and they say size doesn't matter".

Left it off for an hour and it's working now. I don't have much faith in it, this will be my garage tv, I think. We'll buy a bigger one at some point for the living room over the fireplace.

Well, dang. Alternator is on it's way out. Starting to hear a slight whine from it. I was hoping it was a loose belt, but no such luck. Ordered a new one and I'll put it in before Terryville. Shouldn't be an issue this weekend, it's barely making noise, it just annoys me and I want to stay on top of it. Might as well replace the belt while I'm at it.

Oh yeah, TV pooped the bed the following day. Got me a big ol' 65". I'm thinking probably the last big ticket item for a while!
