    I've been absent lately.

    Hino hood bandaid

    Coalminer, this one's for you! Spongebox sent a truck my way. Floppy hood syndrome. It was bad. For those that don't know, the hoods of 05-10 Hinos with 6 cylinder engines have hoods that are fragile. They break around the hinges, sometimes very badly. When it's bad, the hood latches are...
