Thanks...I'll try again....I got a pretty good shock the last time and quit to regroup. Made me ask the question.

I may have missed it in a previous posting but what are you doing with the seat belts?

Bruce in NoLA
Repositioning them for the recliners. Also moving the air ducts and 110v outlet to the wall on right side of Refig.

Quick Bathroom Upgrades

Made a couple quick upgrades in the Jolly Rodgers bathroom. The faucet was driving us bonkers. The replacement looks much better and affords more ease of use.

Is that faucet something you picked up at your local home improvement store?

Yes, sorry - should have included the link. Shower head is an Oxygenics which I think we'll really like as well.

The sunk faucet does not bother me, but I sure would like to replace the shower faucet with a single lever model. Anyone know one that will work in the 2016 Axis?

Love the new sink faucet, looks like it is extended out just a tad bit more from the original, Where did you get?

That's what we liked about - the higher arc gives a little more room and the single lever makes it easier to use.

WOW... talk about getting side tracked... LOL...
The couch we have now sits 3 but feels like is should be about a foot deeper and the reclining part you just slide off of... Sure wish they would build these thing like they do Mustangs... LOL...

We had a '65 mustang convertible, 289, stick shift, blue with a white rag top. Bought it used when we got married, shipped it to Japan in 1969 and drove it all over Tokyo for four years. It was the only one I ever saw in Japan during those years. Great car... Wish I still had it.
