Nice. I need to see an ENT...I have enlarged turbinates as far as I can tell. I can't survive just breathing through my nose most of the time...I can't get enough air :|
Matt: I researched this surgery quite extensively .... Dr. Robert Capasso - considered by some as one of the top five ENTs in the world (Check his medical journal articles on the subject) is at Stanford. I had him perform this procedure as well as two others on me in 2011.
I live is the Central Valley, where every known pollen seems prevalent, and I breathe so much better.
Read up on the turbinate reduction.... most docs just fry your turbinates and then if you get caught out in cold weather or snow country you can feel like you have a perpetual brain freeze going. Feel free to PM me if you would like to talk with someone who did extensive research before having this done. The procedure is in theory "simple" but the level of post op success is highly dependent on the surgeon's technique and skill.

Thank you ol' 320 for reaching out to Matt I do appreciate this. I had a great surgeon here and am very pleased with the results from the nasal surgery.
Went with my brother Garret today to check out my father Mazda M5 with 38,000 miles on it. He received a written estimate from his mechanic for replacing the axle shaft assemblies for $1114.
All we had to do was replace the small end boot bands for now, less than $10. We will watch to see if the come loose again and if they do we will remove the axle shafts from the car and install new band on both ends.
So tomorrow I will work on my 520 some and see how I do. I used my gel knee pads today and was careful getting up and down on the driveway. What I found out is that it hurts to lay on my right side on the concrete. That is the hip I broke last year that has a 2' rod and 3 screws in.

What ever the day brings forth Mr Tanker.
I hope to get some work done on my 520 this week. It will be slow as I helped my brother work on my dad's mazda and could hardly move the next day. My right hip is giving me hell.

Did not get to the 520 butt Shawn came over this morning and we threw some tires and rims that AZHitman gave me a while back in the back of my King Cab 720 and went down to the tire place and had them dismount 2 tires, mount those 2 tires on some 78/79 620 wheels I have and balance them and then put them on the front of my King Cab. Shawn paid $30 dollars and we headed to The Wittmann auto wrecking yard to get a pair of 78 620 upper control arms. Shawn also scored a set of early really loud Cadillac El Dorado horns. Those will get the point across.
Also picked up a used oxygen sensor for my King Cab.
We got back home about 6:00 pm and unloaded and Shawn went to work installing an alarm system in his 521.
Getting ready to barbecue some hot dogs and make some Kraft cheese & macaroni to feed Shawn's family and us. When the girls finish there homework then it will be a Netflix kids night.
I should be able to get some sleep to night, fingers crossed.
It has been a great day to be alive!!!

Not sure I like it but I will hold on to it until I get the Optima battery and see how it fits and try different placements.
This is the battery tray I was thinking of ordering.

I would not waste money on an Optima! Their quality nosedived some time in the mid 2000's. An AGM Superstart from Orielly's is cheaper and better. Or get a smaller, lighter Odyssey, http://www.odysseybattery.com/
One jump ahead of the lawmen
That's all, and that's no joke
These guys don't appreciate I'm broke

It's your car, just don't ruin it.
This seems like an elaborate ploy to get me to say "I like the D".
