    Today’s progress was minimal. Got some tie downs welded on the headache rack. Got the big hatch made yesterday. Started working on my modular rack parts. Some more Hard On painting done as well. I am sure as a whole you guys will be disappointed with the paint work but to my way of thinking if already looks like sheeeet I don’t have to worry about kissing anything!

    It means he has to lean 3 more inches to the left. We were shooting left handed around this corner, to stay behind cover as much as possible.

    My neighbor was shooting birds from his kitchen table. His wife got upset when he started hitting the windowsill.


    With all that wood, be careful doing river crossing. Your truck may float away.

    Believe me, at this point, a snorkel would hardly stand out on your rig.

    In any case, if people sarcastically ask you if you’re crossing a river on the way home from the grocery store… you would be fully within your rights to say “well, actually yeah” lol

    So I have the calendar finalized after making one minor change. I’ll be printing them early next week. If you ordered (or about to) calendars and will be at the Pat Garage Kegger, let me know and I can bring those. I’ll ship the rest soonly.

    Thank you for adding new vocabulary to my life that I did not realize I was lacking. Beautiful! Lol I will put it to use immediately!

    Haha :rofl:

    In my defense, that was exclaimed in a public setting, and totally not in a dark seedy back alley. Totally innocent. And it was only to describe a certain someone clearing a mud plug out of their exhaust.

    Wait, no, ugh… It wasn’t like that!!!!

    …maybe I should stop trying to defend myself:anonymous:. :bananadead:

    They are having fun. I have one, who is a senior that has been one of my shop rats since he was in 7th grade who is taking lead. Other roll in and out as they have interest and time (They all have labs they need to complete etc.) Been interesting dealing with some of the "staff" who assume I am just taking advantage of the district. Honestly, they cut my budget over 4k this year. No money for even the materials I need, much less projects. I am in less than a grand from my pocketbook for this (without the lights...) and I have kept at least one kid who wouldn't otherwise come to school busy everyday for a month now! Really good learning experience from standpoint of fabrication and completion. Lots of little mistakes that would be unacceptable on a customer rig, but I am okay with it (I had to make a lot of the same ones at the expense of a shop owner (My brother...) as I learned...) It is BIG-every other shop instructor I spoken with has been seriously impressed. Cool senior project! Worthy of a Shutterfly book for the seniors involved.

    I'm contemplating a tablet for maps in the truck...anyone have any thoughts? I've never really looked at them and not sure where to even start. Then I have to come up with a mounting solution...
