Sorry to hear about your loss. It's always hard when you lose a family member or close friend. the best thing you can do is to keep your memories of time spent with him alive. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family and as well to your Grandfather may he rest in peace.

Re: Daddy's Dog House

The best thing we can all do is pass on the priceless advice and stories from our grandparents to our kids, perpetuate the family feeling, that close feeling of kin and a connect to the past. When you pass from the scene, all you can really do is leave memories, hopefully really good memories with those you leave behind. Nobody ever says on thier deathbed that they wish they had worked harder or longer. But they always say they wish they had spent more time with thier family, and spent real quality time with thier friends and family. That is what it's all about!

Re: Daddy's Dog House

The levers on the front heater panel may be only for the dash heater/defroster. There should be one or two shutoff valves in the engine compartment that will stop the water from circulating, however this valve shuts off the supply to every heater. There's no way to shut off hot water to just the middle heater, unless you install a separate valve on the lines that run along the wall.

Re: Daddy's Dog House

On the driver's side rear compartment..(the compartment with the air filter NOT the battery compartment), if you lift up the door slide it to the right it will come right off (much easier than trying to hold it up).

To the left of the air cleaner assembly you should see a pump with heater hoses coming out of it and a valve. Turn that valve clockwise. And that should stop the coolant from being pumped into the interior hoses. Just remember if you start taking apart the heaters, you will have an abundance of coolant still in those hoses.

You should also have a switch on the left side driver panel that says "pump". That is the switch for the circulator pump. Make sure that is off. You don't need the pump running unnecessarily.

Looking good!

I wished my floor was in that good of shape.

Re: Daddy's Dog House

Holy smokes! You are going to be in there forever with that little cup and drill motor.
You need an angle grinder with a big wire cup attachment. If you can't spring for a new one, do what I do, hit up some pawn shops. Then, off to the harbor freight for the cup brush. You will save a LOT of effort, and you will find other uses for it later. Like cutting metal, or bricks, or cement, or tiles...

Can't really see the wire cup from this angle. But this made short order of the work I needed to do and that is with my rusty floor. Yours is in great shape!

Re: Daddy's Dog House

No, it won't ordinarily work for dried adhesives. It makes a mess, and can fling it around where it will readhere to something else, like the windows.
Unless the globs are huge, I wouldn't worry about the adhesive, as it makes a pretty good sealant for the floor anyway.
You can paint right over it. I am assuming you are going to put something on top of the floor, right?
You can knock down the high spots with adhesive on them with a chisel, or sharp scraper.
But overall, I wouldn't worry about it.
