Sounds like an excellent idea! I will check with my local machine shop about getting it tested.

Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

I had to move the Blazer to get the lawnmower out of the shop. Ratchet wanted another ride, who I am to deny him? It just looked so good in the sun with the weeds all around it, so I had to snap a couple of pictures before I put it up, and cut the weeds down.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.
