  1. We used to joke that people used fox body Mustangs as currency in Florida. Now, I am certain they do in North Carolina. "I've got three fox bodies, how much salami can I get for that?"
  2. Good stuff on the repair at least! I love "We just had all these parts laying around to slap it together" lol!
  3. Bro I feel you, my 14 has all kinds of dents in it. Once I pay it off I am going to drop it at a body shop to make it look new again. Drives me crazy!
  4. I am hoping having the bar in my back yard makes me do it more! I think that maybe sounds a little too advanced for what I need lol! I don't even have Alexa! But we will see. I got the storm door hung back up, which means I finally got the garage cleared out enough for this: I don’t think I ever posted a finished shot of the shed. I secured it in the ground with a few 4x4s that are cemented in and lag bolted to the platform. I put some shelving inside that makes it so I have more usable space: Then here is my pull up bar. It’s a pair of 12 foot 4x4s. I bought a nice new set of post hole diggers just for this job. I got the holes deep enough that I was no longer able to remove dirt with the diggers. A little more than 3.5 feet in the ground – so I cut the bottoms off to make sure my bar was 8 foot tall exactly. Otherwise it’s just a 1 inch galvanized pipe with floor pieces on it and a pipe insulation cover thingy. Make sure if you build one that you measure the pipe, since pipe is measured from ID not OD. I ended up having to get busy with a sledge hammer to get this bad boy through the hole. Of course when I was digging I encountered a ton of roots, so I ended up having to use my chain saw. Then I encountered roots much lower that the saw couldn’t reach. My neighbor thought to use a floor scraper all sharpened up and that did the trick. Anyhow, pics: I built it sort of in line with the gate on that side. I’m hoping to go for runs around the neighborhood. I live on a loop so I’ll just do a lap, grab a few pull ups, then keep rolling. I used to be able to do 20 at a time with a weight between my legs. I can’t even do 10 right now. Time to get to work.
  5. Lol, I have almost the exact same rear end setup on my measly 250 horse That's gonna be a steal for that fuel setup. The new setup should really make sure this thing gets the proper quenching when it thirsts!
  6. I really like the bronze after seeing it!
  7. I appreciate it brother! I planted a pull-up bar in the back yard this morning. I've been working out a whole lot. Pull-ups are one of those exercises that you only get better at by doing them, so, I need a way to do them! I planted 12 foot 4x4s about 4 feet in the ground with 50 pounds of concrete around each post and a 1 inch pipe tying it all together!
  8. I appreciate it brother. It's hers, and I'm sure she'll take care of it. I will say, after being around both, maintenance on the TA is miserable, but only on stuff that you shouldn't have to do often. Unfortunately we had to do so much catching up on this car that it all hit you in the face at once. Otherwise, it's such a pleasure. Makes a beautiful sound, is really quick and feels solidly planted.
  9. Not really. SN95s are hardly represented at car shows and stuff anymore, I doubt any sizeable group has gotten together for a cruise any time recently.
  10. So I decided it was time to get rid of the Sony Xplod that I bought used in 2010 for $20 because it finally started having issues. Because the primary job of this car is to Autocross and just be fun to drive, I didn’t go all out. I got a cheap Pioneer head unit and some cheap front and rear speakers. I did not take pics of the install because I was racing the sun. The said, I forgot how easy simple radios are to install. I’ve been doing more “advanced” head units for people lately. This was delightfully simple. https://flic.kr/p/24y1eHe https://flic.kr/p/2f5SaoS It’s about a million times better than what was there, has Bluetooth and I can plug a USB in. I’m happy. I also replaced the passenger window motor and charged the A/C. It’s practically a luxury car at this point. Also, local Tires Plus shop had a deal going on for lifetime alignments. Went ahead and purchased that. Will probably do it for the white car as well; anyhow thanks for looking!
  11. Alright so I suppose now is a good a time as any to let everyone know the bad news: The Boss and I have parted ways. I don’t think it was a messy break, and I believe we are going to be friendly with one another, but ultimately decided a relationship was probably not the best. That said, I’ve been doing a ton of work on the house, so without further ado: The front door frame got all rotten, probably because before the house had gutters, water would roll down the roof, splash on the ground and splash up into the bottom of the frame, inducing rot. I noticed because the storm door did this: So, got it all ripped out of there: And then I got a new door: https://flic.kr/p/2e4BAdh https://flic.kr/p/2f5SbsW Obviously the sealant gets covered up with the trim, but I painted it before I put that up. No pics because I ran out of light on that. Next, the master bedroom door made a hellacious noise every time it opened and closed. I found out it was because it was sagging a bit, so I replaced these hinges, and now it’s silent. Score! https://flic.kr/p/24y1fwD Some of you may remember from the microwave install, I punched through the other side of the drywall. I’ve had this hole covered up since with a puzzle, decided I would go ahead and officially fix it: https://flic.kr/p/2e4BBaY https://flic.kr/p/2dLF2ip https://flic.kr/p/2e4BBoJ I haven’t painted it just yet because I have a few places that need touch up and I’m, you know, saving it. With the split, I needed to get a bed. So I decided to try one of these: https://flic.kr/p/T2kmXs They send a couple of these cute little things that show the material it’s made out of and let you feel it. https://flic.kr/p/24y1gsB And since I ordered it during the Presidents Day sale, they also sent a free $100 pillow. This thing has to be 20 pounds. https://flic.kr/p/T2kne9 Next I decided to replace the carpet. I went with the bottom choice here: https://flic.kr/p/RpaAoi https://flic.kr/p/24y1gEk That’s 55 boxes, luckily I only needed 53! Woo, returns! Master bedroom all torn up: https://flic.kr/p/T2knLm https://flic.kr/p/T2knV9 Then the living room: https://flic.kr/p/2dLF4CK Mostly finished: https://flic.kr/p/2e4BCTs It’s hard to tell, but on the step down into the back room it used to be half carpet and half tile. We leveled out the step and made it wood the whole way back, and are doing a stair nose. Now we are just waiting for the stair nose and T-Moldings to come in to finish everything up. First impressions: Holy crap this is going to be so much cleaner. Holy crap, it’s so much easier to just slide furniture around. Holy crap the house just looks bigger! I’m still waiting on my cool coffee table I’ve already picked out projects for as well. I got crafty one night and decided to hot glue a bunch of Rick and Morty figures down on some cardboard, because that’s what adults do: https://flic.kr/p/2f5SeSb I came home the other morning to this. Obligatory aww photo: https://flic.kr/p/24y1hFi I needed a kitchen table and my grandmother came in for the save, finding this one for free. I might sticker bomb the top then do an acrylic coating over it. For now, it’s a great table for free! https://flic.kr/p/T2knJC I think the house is letting me know that the next thing I need to do is a remodel of the master bath. I think the flange under the toilet needs to be replaced, and I hate the tub, and, so on and so forth. May as well do it all in one shot…I am probably going to go with a shower only in there, something much nicer and more up to date (tile). After that, I’ve been really toying with the idea of an arcade machine. I am not sure which style I like more: https://flic.kr/p/2f5Sbxq https://flic.kr/p/2f5SbGo With the enclosed screen the advantage is that it’s all just one unit. Without the enclosed screen you can have a bigger screen. But, I feel like the retro games should be on a smallish screen. The plan is to have the base be a glass door refrigerator stocked with good stuff, with something neat running the whole setup. So, there you have it.
