Hey guys (gals, etc)!!

I haven't had an Eta BMW (my username) in 7 years, but read often.

I couldn't tamper with my lease vehicle and my wife wouldn't let me do anything to her van, I've been learning but not doing.

Things changed. When I got furloughed from my job last year, I had to give the lease up. I was brought back part-time, so we got a newer minivan for my wife and I inherited hers.

It's freaking cold and I'm garage-less, so projects will be few until April or May. One easy one will be a grill block. My commute is 1 mile to freeway, 14 miles on freeway then park. The engine doesn't get warm enough in the short drive to produce much heat. (Prob a failing water pump too, but let's not think about that. Typically involves lowering the engine a smidge to loosen serpentine belt. See beginning of this paragraph.)

Anyway, we'll see what the next few months bring us.
