Storing a vehicle?

Hello, MDers...

I just got a complaint from the HOA regarding my '97 truck. I have been working on it to pass MD state inspection, but they want it out. Is there a place where I can store and work on the truck somewhere? It runs and drives, and is insured. Sorta like renting a garage?

Thanks, all.

Are you in Howard County? Can the truck be driven? Legally?

What has to be done yet to get it Maryland legal to get a tag?

Yes, that would be them.

No, Montgomery County. Yes, the truck can be driven. Legal? Not anymore. Stickers expired last June.

The inspector gave me a long list as to why it failed:

Rear tank straps & crossmember rusted out, tank could fall out
Rearview mirror broken [midst replacing w/ a junkyard part]
Radiator front core support [current one has some rust]
Bench seat [soon to be replaced w/ a junkyard one]
Was told the front brake rotors & axle U-joints were bad but they look fine to me.
Steering intermediate shaft coupling is worn out & very loose
Left exhaust manifold cracked
Power steering pressure hose leaking
Battery hold-down missing

So Chad, what is your plan? Do you have any of the parts yet to replace what you HAVE to replace? Did you mike the rotors? Any play in the U-Joints?

To get it pass...but it's taking so long. The inspections in my area are very stringy, possibly because it's very urban.

Not so much. Ordered some on rockauto.com. Trying to keep it on the cheap so I'm hitting the junkyards.

The rotors look OK to the naked eye. The truck stops pretty good without issues. I haven't tested the u-joints yet. I'm not sure how to test them.

The seat so worn out, there are pillows stuffed into the cushions...not very comfortable. And a tarp is covering the bottom part because the vinyl is mostly gone.

I couldn't agree more about the HOA ******. Unfortunately, most, if not all, neighborhoods around here have some sort of HOA.

Here's a pic of the core support...bad enough to warrant a fail?

Click the image to open in full size.

The exhaust manifold is cracked, and someone patched it with some white milky substance. It's leaking too.

Dude, if you know someone who's really flexible, or will take only 30 seconds to inspect, send them my way...

I'm about to either torch it or sell it on ebay with that vehicle deal going on...

It was a landscaping/plow truck, so it's had its share of heavy use. I got it pretty cheap. However, the core is a bolt-on...it's replaceable, but I gotta take a lot of stuff off to access it...unless you think it's a bad idea? Everything else seems ok in the immediate area.

I'd hate to part it out. It's a good truck. It has all the stuff mudders dream of, and none of the things sissies need to compensate for something.

Say what, you mean it's a real truck not a showboat?
Chad, I'd tell you to bring it up here but would have to ask the wifey
first. How much time would you need?

What I meant by that was it has the stuff a real truck should have - like 4.10 limited slip axles, manual hubs/TC, vinyl seat/rubber floor mat, no radio nor A/C and has characters (scratches, dents, creases, etc)

That would work. Let me know. Maybe a weekend or two. Lots to be done. When I get it done, we can take it to flathead and burden him with the inspection...
