I must be living right of something. Aside from a 1-2 week delay on a pair of rear drums from JBugs (that didn’t matter anyway, I still haven’t installed them) I haven’t had a single delay in anything I’ve ordered during the pandemic. Last month I order the complete set of bits for a 968 belt service from 3 different suppliers and all came in as planned. I just ordered a new PS pump for my Mercedes from Rock Auto and the reservoir/seals from Pelican and both arrived one day earlier than the original tracking info said.

Windows?

You want windows in your garage door?

It's troublemakers like you, Stan, who are making things difficult for all of us. Do you know what it does to the supply chain when some smart guy in Peoria asks for windows?

This is why container ships are stalled at anchor off Long Beach and why kids in South Carolina won't be getting their Nikes for Christmas.

The rest of us learned to go without windows years ago. What goes around comes around.

First you want two plugs in every cylinder, now this.

Sheesh Stan, show some compassion for your fellow man.

I'm on rosuvastatin (Crestor), so I'm golden.

Fluvastatin (Lescol), pitavastatin (Livalo), and pravastatin (Pravachol) are all OK as well. Atorvastatin (Lipitor), lovastatin (Mevacor), and simvastatin (Zocor) are not. I've been on at least 2 of the no-go in the past, so I guess I'm just lucky I didn't get on my Squirt kick until recently.

Seriously - add the lime juice. It takes the entire Squirt thing up to a solid "9" from a "take it or leave it" soda experience.

I'm so glad that the only medication I am on is a good cup of coffee in the morning - and that's decaf.

And I can pronounce it.

My daughter and her husband are like the developer couple on “Home Town” on HGTV.   They find local homes needing a lot of TLC then find someone to buy it to get it renovated.  Lumber and supplies were tight for them for a while in the first half of last year (getting anything for a deck was almost impossible) but things are improving both in pricing and delivery so they’re currently working right out straight on four homes.  Scheduling can be challenging at times, but apparently not all that bad, considering.  

OTOH, I needed a couple of 10’ 2” X 12” planks for my new lift and bought them locally at the town’s lumber yard (Buy Local!)   They had plenty of 8’, 12’ and 16’ but no 10’s.  🤬

I ended up getting two 12 footers for about $30 each after taxes.  Thought that was a little high, but then, I haven’t bought anything that big in 30 years!  They look really good on my shop floor, too.  

For all you guys on Statins,  An BMJ article on Statins. these researchers call for review

"Globally, drug regulators have approved statins for the prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD), although their use in primary prevention has been controversial. A highly publicised debate has ensued over whether the benefits outweigh the harms."

Asking questions of your care giver might be helpful or due.

With all the wonderful advise (thank you all!), I am hoping this new game plan will work. Still need to connect with Greg about it, but I think it minimizes the work his shop/guys need to do and I will take of the rest... I know I'm capable... just need to stop being lazy...

Plan:

- Ship coupe to carpet shop (instal headliner, cut carpet to car and interior pieces)

- Ship coupe from carpet guy to Greg (glass install)

- Ship coupe from Greg to home (I'll finish the rest)

I will need to get the engine that is sitting on his shelf. I'll tap @MusbJim to help with the engine install like he did in my Speedster

Basically, I just need Greg and his guys to install the glass (front, door frame and windows, quarter windows, back glass). I'll do the rest

I'll source all the missing parts I need from Greg (at least that continues to give his shop business).

Now, to see if I can get a hold of Greg

My Brutha, whenever you're ready to move your coupe from your crib to those shops then eventually back your garage, give me a shout and I'll hook up the tow bar and move that bad boy for you.

I imagine those projects will spread out over a few days to a week or so, but it'll take the guesswork outta the handling of your coupe (tow company staff) and hopefully more peace-of-mind for you.
