Seriously right through the fucking boot! And they only got meaner when you stroked and ported them.

I really love my TRX250 if for no other reason it hit you in the calf with half the impact.

I hate mud but I was glad to at least get out. And at least this was mud encountered while going places, as opposed to the super boring "drive to a mudhole and go back and forth through it."

Fender flare coverage isn't ideal given the lack of A/C.


Edit, we aren't a gay Jeep club. There was a gay Ranger there too.

Yesterday was a travel day from hell.

Client meeting at 8:00, there till 10am, at airport by 10:10

Get notice my flight is delayed, which will make my connection- unconnectable.

Go to counter lady is super nice and goes above and beyond.

New flight - check

Finish leg one- connection delayed. 25 min. no prob its my final so I get there a bit later.

3 hrs later we take off.

Land at 12am- car rental closed at 11:30 - but say to use their hub. NBD - Hub has like 3 cars left, I am #2 of 3 in line. Get car.

Drive 50 minutes to hotel. Walk in and am greeted with 'are you dan?' - oh fuck thats not good.

They over booked, and I did not have a room.

But they have me one at the hotel next door. Fine. Its now like 1:30am and I am beat.

Get there they are aware of it all, very nice give me room key.

Walk in- WTF why is there a conference table in my room, - yup extra meeting room with a fold down bed.

Fuck it- take a shower and go to bed.

On the upside I get paid from Hotel to Hotel on travel days, so 7:40 am to 1:40 am.

Shitty way to make some extra money but still decent OT

yeah RV
bed is in the back laying across. its missing the mattress
he had those side windows with flares put on that makes it 3" wider on each side. i guess that's enough to put bed there

there's water tank under the bed,water heater, pumps,fuse panel,spare tire.

that cabinet next to it where the sliding door is that's a shitter

grey and black water tanks are on the bottom

I made a new end for this bowden cable on a 98 Porsche boxster. The car I was working on has the early design and the replacement cable I got was the late design. The interior door handle late design cost is $575 from pelican parts. So i used the new cable and old casing.

Congratulations, you are a mechanic and not a parts hanger...

I do this kind of stuff all of the time. Such-and-so part is obsolete, can't be fixed, blah blah blah... Get me something close and I'll make it work. What was the saying that used to go around here? Grind it to fit and paint it to match!

BTW, nice work there... Don't mind me, I have brown eyes for a reason. People who don't have brown eyes are just a few quarts low...

When the owner burns to death in the thing because the door won't open, I'm sure this post will be Exhibit B, and the one above it Exhibit A, for the trial where they find you guilty of manslaughter.

Drinking with mom tonight when out of nowhere, her car horn start blowing for no reason. Iím not talking about car alarm kind with a momentary silence between beeps, just full on road rager laying on the horn at midnight. So I go out there and start pulling fuses until it stops then looked up the location of the relay on my phone. Apparently this is a common issue for 06 sebrings. Relay goes bad and the horn just randomly blows whenever it wants.

Fucking "A" quit your bitching... I have been sent out on many last minuet cluster fucks to strange off base locations. I have learned to levitate above a seedy hotel room bed without spinning and losing my cookies. No shit; handed keys through a bullet glass portal while being asked how many hours I will be needing the room.

FUCK.....I am now retired... enough.... so looking forward to doing stupid shit.

We were out camping once, left the wives in camp and went for a hike. 2 hours later on our way back we start hearing this weird buzzing noise. Finally get back to camp, and discover that my buddy's old crew cab Ford got horny while we were gone. We had been gone about 10 minutes and the horn went honk....honk......ho-ho-ho-HHHHHOOOOOOONNNNNNNNKKKKKKKKKKKKKK and didn't stop until we got back and disconnected the wires.
Our wives were SUPER impressed. None of them have a fucking clue about cars other than gas goes in, and husbands do stuff to keep cars working.
