1970 El Camino

Well. I had work done in the left side bracket breaking off and last night some guy flagged me down letting me know my right side was down. Sitting at my favorite muffler shop getting it repaired by welding that sucker down.


Heck of busy these past few weeks. We just completed our first Luau and not switching bats over to another big event to be held in June of next year.

1970 El Camino Dash Lights…

The swept dashboard instrument cluster light brightness seemed to be on the dim side. I removed the upper Dash pad to access the 194 bulbs from the rear. I replaced all of the bulbs and the intensity didn’t seem to increase much, especially in the center area of the instrument panel. 

Tip, if you’re needing the same multiple bulbs for a project. You can purchase them bulk at your local auto parts store. This is a huge savings. In my case buying the packages would cost $30 for 10, I was able to get 10 pieces for $8 bucks. That’s a big savings. 

I even tried using the LED equivalent version, that made no difference at all.

Westbank Mississippi…

One of our traditions while visiting NOLA during the Independence Day Celebration festivities is going to the Westbank of the Mississippi to a place called the Algiers. We can see the dueling barges fireworks from the grassy levee side.

IPhone Sceen and Heat…

Well, my iPhone screen finally popped out on the left side due to the internally battery expanding. I had fallen asleep in the car and the iPhone battery expanded due to the extreme heat. I fell asleep and it could have turned out ugly if I didn’t wake up in time. 

I had it repaired at a local phone repair shop on Magazine street that was recommended by an AT&T employee before I was about to do a phone upgrade.
