So, I install 2 quarts of non-synthetic GL-5 80w90 gear oil + a 4 ounce tube of limited slip additive, which adds up to 4.25 pts.

Thanks. Was just coming back to this page to verify the amounts.

I didn't know what a build sheet was or its significance and I threw it away when I was 18! :mad:
Anyway, yours looks to be in great shape. Congrats.

I "stepped up" to Koni Classics. Good ride and good performance as well.

Nice!  Have you played with the adjustment at all?

Lobby / Re: Advice On Converting My Structure to a Garage
« Last post by ryeguy2006a on July 13, 2020, 07:45:42 AM »
I made some progress this weekend on my garage build. I started by pulling off the siding on the back side to get to the bones so that I could tie my new wall into the building.





The biggest issue that I discovered, is that the main support beam for the corner of the building was sitting flush against the edge of the concrete, but I wanted it to be uniform like the rest of the building. So that meant that I had to support the corner of the building, move the beam about 1.5", redrill the concrete, and put it all back together.



With that moved, I could measure and build my wall. I went to the hardware store to get some materials, but what I discovered is that there is a huge shortage of building materials, and more specifically treated 2x4's. They had 1 2x6x16, so I got the idea to have them cut the board in half at the store, so it was easier to transport. When I got home I ripped the board in half. Since a 2x4, measures 3.5" and a 2x6 measures 5.5", my ripped boards measured out to be 2.75" which isn't that much less than a regular 2x4. I'm not building a high end structure and I wanted to move forward with getting this enclosed.



Once that was done, I put up my OSB which was pretty easy since what I'm adding on is just shy of 8' wide. Also note the rope that is going through the upper opening. That is my son's grappling hook. He was outside with me when I was doing most of this and he was using a rope I gave him and lifting his stuff up on it to keep it away from bears haha.



I used the extra material that wrapped around and stapled it to the new wall. I need to grab another roll or two of the StyroFoam roll and then I can put the siding and soffit back on. I plan to re-use as much of the siding as I can so that it will match the sun-fading on this side.



I also bought two 9x7 insulated garage doors for the front side of the garage. They will match my opening perfectly and they pretty closely match the doors on my attached garage.

Hopefully by the end of summer I'll have it enclosed and can tinker on it this winter.
