I saw the mods people were using on the youtube videos posted using the HF changer. Instead of the 3 vinyl Mojoblocks, I cut 3 pieces about 3" long off of an old garden hose. I cut one slit in each along the length of each piece. They slipped on nicely to the lip of rim and protected it...
I picked up a harbor freight tire changer recently. I just used it today to put new front and new rear tires on. The OP summed it up pretty well. It's not a top notch machine but I would recommend it as an inexpensive way to make a tough job a lot easier.
I was there 2 years ago to see the race. Missed it last year. Plan on making it this year.

The shop I work at will be switching from the typical 5 day work week, to a 3 day/12hrs a day system starting at the end of this quarter. We will still get paid for 40 hours :cool:
4 days off in a row....-every week! I see many camping trips with the NC in my future!
That car was on my radar as soon as it started to move forward, about the middle of my turn. I was paying attention.
She probably heard my horn before she saw me, and that's why the driver stopped. That's why I used it. I believe I was heard
before I was seen. At roughly the 10 second...
