I've had to do this, and I live on the edge of the earth, AKA, Washington,
Some asshat sent his wife to HD to get plumbing fittings, they'd had to reverse the drains
because they were going from a septic system to a
sewer, so he'd cut all the drains out 3" below the floor, and drawn a diagram
of the fittings she needed to get. Guys, don't do this to your wife, and
definitely don't do it if you can't tell your elbow from a sanitary tee...

This sir also applies to Murray KY. The DQ closes during the winter because its not one of those Brazier places. Its ice cream only, no burgers or crap. Everything is in hours, not miles. Everyone has hit at least 2 deer..and a lot of houses dont even have locks.

1990 GT, 347 / 76mm turbo setup OUT AND GONE!

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.
