New Bentley

A couple of weeks ago, I upgraded from my old Flying Spur to the new Flying Spur. It’s an incredible car, and has so many small improvements over the old car in terms of interior polish, driving dynamics, and technology. The garage is looking mighty nice these days! Continue reading New Bentley

Woodshed Roof Replacement

When I was doing various spring cleanup tasks around the land, I noticed that the roof of the woodshed I built on the back corner of the land had collapsed over the winter.

This past week, I finally decided to pull the trigger on getting the Bentley’s infotainment system upgraded. Here is roughly what the finished product will look like: I went with a largely button-less JVC head unit, the KW-M75BT, which … Continue reading Bentley AV Update
