    This morning I peeled off my shellacked bar tape. I need to change stems, which means a re-do of the job I did last summer. I was very worried about how difficult it would be to get the bars clean...

    I used to own a blue B2200 standard cab, short box. I still regret the day I traded it in for a sedan. I can't remember the year - it might have been a 1998?
