is it just more or are used Acura's really cheap?

They had it listed for 11k after I talked my shit I walked out paying 6k.

I think they go for cheaper cause of the upcoming maintenance. Like this one is due for a timing belt in 10k-ish, but $240 for the kit with rollers and tentsioner and a couple hours is a lot better than a $1200 bill from the dealer.

Made working on the car in my garage much better! $100 at Home Depot well spent!

I got one from menards on sale for $70 (it doesn't have the dial, which would be nice) but yesterday while it was 25 degrees outside I was working in the garage and it was 70 degrees.

Dang it. Now I want a garage heater. I doubt that's gonna happen until we get enough junk out of the garage to fit the wife's car in there too...

Make sure you have a little ventilation in the garage and it would be wise to get a CO detector. Also it is not wise to have the tank indoors. I would get a long hose so the tank could sit outside.

Those are both really good ideas. Since I insulated the soffits I don't have any ventilation anymore. And it does say that it burns at a nearly 100% efficiency but I was starting to get headachey yesterday.

I ran it for about 20 minutes with the garage door open about 10" then turned it off and closed the door. Seemed fine, I'll snag a CO detector next time I'm at the store.

Most helpful post from Jon in a while. ;)

CO detectors are less than $15, they're cheap insurance.

and it didn't have anything to do with my Mercedes center caps (shh...don't tell him about the Audi Centercaps on my winter wheels)

My garage is part of a 4 car building, I have sealed up my side best I can for water/animal protection, but there is still air flow over the wall between my garage and the ones next door, and theirs has a 10" gap in the back allowing air flow. So I'm not too concerned about it, still going to pick one up. Better safe than sorry right?
