Re: Watkins' other Saab

I read extensive reviews before my purchase, and all were good. I bought the 1200 lb gross trailer, which leaves me with about 1000 lbs of load capacity. Ive put probably well over double that on it for short trips. Aside from having to pull over to bend up the fenders because they were rubbing, all...

Re: Watkins' other Saab

My Harbor Great utility trailer was a freaking miracle bargain at $300 including the decking and hardware I bought for it. I use the crap out of it and have only one complaint after five years: The paint sucks and flakes off fast. Every two years or so I sand it down and repaint as needed. I could d...

Welcome back!

We haven't talked about it otherwise and under no circumstances will I publicly name names, but you're far from the only non-cis person who has been through here.

Re: Watkins' other Saab

Her name is Dame Helen Mirren. We in the Saab community refer to these things as Dame Ednas, actually. So anywho, this is probably the most unusual thing Ive done to the Mom Wagon: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/937/43282249194_4167c2e058_o.jpg In addition to the 3" downpipe I picked up, I had a fu...

Re: Watkins' other Saab

Dig the kayaks on the roof. I'd have a canoe now if I had a place to store it. Alas, I do not. My 14' canoe is too wide for the racks and too obnoxious to lift that high, so it goes on the trailer if I ever pull it out. Honestly I prefer the kayaks. wait, so you still have blue balls? eye was under...

Watkins' other Saab

Due the the whole photobucket debacle, Ive been too lazy to make this post. Last May(!!) I bought a second crappy old Saab in the form of a 2008 9-5 Aero wagon. Low miles, good service history, and a crappy beat up body. This is how I bought it https://farm1.staticflickr.com/937/30087132048_9f962e69...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Lets see..... One car, two adults, and two dogs, so I had to fit a lot in without the benefit of folding down the whole rear seat. -Get both kayaks on the roof and secured, including making new coated steel cable bow lines. -Minimize from the four rubbermaid bins we keep everything loose in down to ...

Re: Roll Call. Who's still here?

Im not on constantly, but I do check in every few days. Ive transitioned from being primarily a laptop user to a phone user for my intergoogling. I find forum formatting frustrating on a phone screen, so I just dont log in much.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Every time I nearly finish a project, something gets in the way. My new bumper is just a clear coat or two away from done, but Im spending my day off minimizing and packing camping supplies for a weekend in the woods

Never mind the forward face. The whole vehicle is just unpleasant to look at.
