    Got the van fixed, put two of the new tires on as one has been leaking for the past year because the rim is so rusty.

    I have had the same problem on my Chevy truck also. The rims rust right through. I think I may have to buy all new ones. They are even hard to find in the junk yard around here now.

    Wow I never heard of anybody having problems with rims on chevy rusting through before. How old is the vehicle? Had a chevy truck a few years ago. I never had any problems.

    Last Chev I owned was a Suburban. The rims were ok; but they were alloy, everything else rusted through, oil pan, differential cover, gas tank, floor, body, bumpers… everything! It had half a million kms on it but still…..

    If they’re aluminum alloy rims isn’t it just blistering that needs to be ground off every so many years that causes them leak otherwise where the rim seals against the tire? I’ve had that issue before once alloy rims get somewhere past 7-10 years old.

    My truck is a 2000 Silverado with 60,000 miles on it. It has steel wheels with a chrome wheel skin cover. There is a grove in the rim that seems to hold all the slop and that is where they rust thru. My last truck was a 99 Silverado 4×4 with aluminum alloy wheels and I had to have them broke down and cleaned every 2 years because the corrosion would make a slow leak. I have been shopping for some aftermarket wheels for it and new tires.

    I like the classic styles. They usually cost less too. Proven designs that work and look good.

    Now I understand what kind of rim you are dealing with now. Every two years on the aluminum ones needing a clean up. Way more frequent than I ever had. They last forever but they still need maintenance regardless.

    I took my frame out of the clamps, sanded and sealed it with a little BLO (mostly for color really).

    My 2001 GMC Sierra had the same wheels on it. I had 250 000 km when I got rid of it. I never had a problem with the wheels.

    The last aluminum one is exactly the one I am thinking about getting.
    If I could find them , what I really would like is the old school Cragger wheels. They were steel with chrome on them.

    That’s going to be a big improvement when it’s all insulated going from 2×3 to 2×6
    Nice work John,

    @cmeyer25 those signs came out great Charlie , I’m sure they will be happy

    Nice job @cranbrook2 . What will you use for siding?
    You should stay nice and warm this winter.

    If I could find them

    Time for a trip down to your local Speed Shop or 4 x 4 shop if you have them. Otherwise, they probably can be found online. Try the Tire Rack, they don’t have Cragar, but a lot of other brands.

    Your frames turned out good. The BLO does give it some colour.

    Nice work! When insulated the 2 x 6 walls will be much warmer.

    Did some odd jobs outside yesterday. I also installed a new chain guard I got off Ebay for my daughter’s bike. It fit perfect. The price was right.

    Neither am I. I’ve been going with James Hardie fiber cement horizontal plank siding for all my stuff outside I’ve been building. Eventually I want to replace my old aluminum vertical siding on my house with it also.

    Takes longer to install than vinyl, but will likely never need painting and will last a lot longer too.

    A got a spark or 2 on the 220v starter on the sharper so I pulled the cord off of it as it appears damaged at the strain relief so I am cutting off a section and rewiring it.

    Have you considered pine or cedar board and batten? You have a good supply of it there.

    Closed the pool today finally. Above ground pools are such a pain to close but at least I got it all done in one day this year. Just have a few things to put in storage and I’m done. Had to move a bunch of lumber I inadvertently stored to close to the pool earlier in the summer not thinking thru about clearances I need to latch down the suspended tarp system we have for the pool cover. I’m beat. Feet are numb.

    Should be getting on with removing my pool mechanicals sometime this week off the BS patio stones the pool’s company installers plunk them on when it was installed a few years ago and make my form for them. I just gotta get that last big concrete job done for the season. There’s a couple of other smallish mixes to do for posts, but those I don’t even think I need my son to help and will maybe do them on my own some weekday when he’s in school at some point. Gotta move on this as the overnites are creeping to freezing temps and that’s not good for concrete.
