Busy weekend for me, which is satisfying. On Saturday we went to the Portland Auto Show to check out the new models and, for me, the exotics and higher-end cars. Kind of disappointed with the Audi interiors, very mono-tone & bland. VW has stepped up their game and they look better inside.
Insulated the furnace air return in the attic space. Not difficult, just time consuming, particularly the taping.
|It wasn't leaking air but as a precaution I sealed the seams.|
|Insulation, HVAC foil tape and 175W area flood lamp!|
|Done! R6 foil-backed wrapped ducting.|
|The turn that goes down to the furnace in the garage.|
Next, I replaced the tank guts in the master bathroom. You'd think that would have been easy but the POs (Previous Owners) used Jacuzzi toilets and good freakin' luck finding parts for them, they SUCK! I was able to find a generic 3" flap and squeeze in the water flow valve/regulator. Now it doesn't leak nor waste water down the drain while filling the tank.
Lastly, I replaced the rear brakes on the Passat. That was the easiest job by far.
