    Did you notice reduced road noise after the Line-X application?

    Well now I didn't realize propane was heavier than air. Never looked into that property. Cheers for educating me on it!

    I did not say the hydrogen DIDN'T burn. Of course it did and it would be stupid to think other wise. But it burned above the craft and is not the reason for the envelope burning. Nor for it burning so rapidly.

    I think he was asking how are you going to be able to lower the spare tire under the bed, that light strip appears to be blocking the access hole for the crank jawn.

    ooof, fortunately my wife will at least let me know that her car is making any little noises. Hell, she alerted me to the throw-out bearing starting to wear out before the mechanics could hear it (intermittent noise). At least with you managing the maintenance on the vehicles you know it will get done, right?

    And thanks to that one incident we've spent the last 85 years without hydrogen dirigibles that can more cheaply and efficiently transport cargo and people around the world because now we have a phobia about hydrogen. Technology has advanced a lot since then. It's good to see that a couple companies are finally starting to make some headway at bringing them back to market.

    If someone could develop a "hot swap-able" hydrogen cell like we do batteries in a UPS then the use of fossil fuels would diminish very quickly.

    There was a bit of buzz about that back around 2007, but largely died when 2008 hit and "physics" intruded. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1797861/

    More recently there's been a new take on it that could be interesting. https://www.autoevolution.com/news/...utionize-hydrogen-storage-for-evs-167256.html

    That said, it's all vaporware until I can actually buy something. Just like the Alpha Wolf EV pickup that I want to buy but doesn't actually exist in anything but a computer render and mock-up rolling chassis.

    No it was speckled across the middle. Likely combination of Toyotas trash paint job and the salty air being close to the beach. I was looking into wrapping the roof until I took the rack off and saw the rust. Line-x took it down to bare metal, primed and coated so I don’t have to worry about anymore and majority of it gets covered by my front runner rack.

    No real noticeable difference without the rack but I’m looking forward to seeing if it quietened things down once I get the rack put back on. I’ll be sure to share!:cheers:

    Does your phone case have a metal plate in it for the magnet? My Qi charger doesn't work with the metal plate in it.

    Agree, hydrogen is very light and essentially was the large explosion / flare that can be seen above the envelope. Charging large banks of batteries for DCS systems or even forklifts can produce hydrogen gas. Always want good ventilation in battery charging rooms.

    Yeah I think it has a thin metal ring embedded in it, but it's specifically designed to work with MagSafe. It's a Spigen Tough Armor Mag.

    Edit: Here's a link. I really like Spigen, particularly the Tough Armor line. All my phone cases since about 2016 have been from them. They've held up to a drop here and there as well as being in my pocket/belt pouch when I work as a carpenter and stagehand.

    Got my Baja designs rock light in the mail going to mount it under the hood for some added lighting. Pics to come when I install it. Also hoping my Switch pros come soon so I can wire that up!

    How did you wire this in? does it only act as a stop light or directional as well ?
    Did you use a Curt wire harness adapter, if so which one?
