Grab a bid from a few nearby places, then after laughing at the price see how much it costs to do the work myself.
Wish me luck
Never in a million years did I think I’d be salivating over a Harley. But that color, and those wheels... Oh god. What have I become.
If you can figure out what I’m designing*
But it works. First time working with metal was a success. If this gets busted again I may look into using solid rivets to get things matched perfectly.
Took an s60r on a test drive today, and looked at a v70r. Everything I dreamed of and more. Comfort, style, dynamics. Passing on both because reasons. Driving home, what do I see? An S60r broken down on the side of the road. I’m sure that’s just a fluke.
Clearly a menace to society. Grow up! Get a job!
To be fair, that IS a very nice gray.
Time to eat humble pie. I now see why the quote was so high for “a simple door”. Nothing is square, things don’t line up in the slightest in length, width OR depth, and the original door was a terrible design in the first place. Super flimsy. I redesigned it, but I need it to look the same from the exterior. 5 hours…
Yes, those are suction cup shower handles that the ladder is resting—and presumably strapped—on. I’m staying away from him.
That hurts a lot.
A completely unplanned solo hike to the top of Mt. Rainier. Full disclosure, I didn’t make it to the summit. However, I did safely(ish) make it back down to the bottom with some damn good stories. Sharing a sunset with a goat 9000' up the tallest peak in the continental US surely qualifies.
Spotted near home
Fabricator flaked on me. I had an appointment to get a work vehicle wrapped on Friday, which I will now have to cancel because I can’t get an exterior door made in time. Thanks “525 Enginesports”. Now I’m going to have to be the asshole that cancels an appointment because you couldn’t meet a deadline for a small job.
I don’t want any of this but I’ve been heavily back into bodybuilding since my knee recovered, and am considering getting back into physique competitions, or trying powerlifting. Either way... Boi gotta eat. It’s absolutely draining eating nonstop everyday for months on end. But it would be even worse to give up.
Acura hit it out of the park with this one. Yes yes, the badge is massive, but other than that.... Gorgeous. Good blue paint, red leather interior. Looks a lot more high-end than you’d expect from an Acura.
Wired in a cabin switch for my fan, replaced a few hoses, and replaced my thermostat with one that opens at a slightly lower temp. Overheating issues are gone! How’s your weekend, Oppo?
With the "cops" sticker he at least seems to be somewhat self-aware.
That’s right baby. I’m back. 9800 Sq. Ft. Of new construction. It feels so good to be out in the field again.
Dropped off at the Firestone down the street to address the wheel bearing. Unfortunately I’ve confirmed that my fan isn’t turning on, which... Is a problem. For now I’m just avoiding traffic, and watching the coolant temp gauge like a hawk.
