  1. Here’s a fun story for you. So I’m at my desk in the Tactical Operations Center (TOC) waiting for anything to do when my Maj came in. He looked at me and said “fuchfase, you’re up”. Typically people only call me by my real name when they want something, so I trotted after him wondering what a humble Senior Airman could do for such a majestic Army Infantry Commander. We walked across to another tent where his 1st Sgt was, it housed a platoon of the Army’s finest soldiers. A 1st Sgt is the enlisted person who doles out most of the discipline. If you haven’t served this would be like being c

  3. Got the MS mostly installed. Little bit more interior wiring to do. The place I got it neglected to note that the tach output is not compatible with the 70-72 tachs, I was already eyeing a speed hut tach and GPS speedo so guess that settles that debate lol.

  4. The arrogance. Trying to take credit for 'toppling a president'. It was a team effort at least and CNN was the most pathetic of all the players.

  5. I was estranged from my parents and hadn't seen or spoken to them for 7-8 years. I sporadically contacted my brother and found she had passed away after the last time I called him two years previously. I immediately contacted my father and there after called him every week and visited him that summer and enjoyed 10 more years with him before he too passed away. Mom was a loving and giving mother but strong willed, over bearing and hard to deal with woman. I learned early that my opinion wasn't that important so discussions with her were never a discussion. I see now that dad lived in her shado

  7. State job gets you a pension. Not many people know what that is these days. Every under 30 year old kid voted to get rid of the pension at Boeing. Give it a few years and those dumb fucks will vote the union out. Wait for it, 1 year later they will be working for minimum wage. Whatever!

  10. 1 Hour, a 2" floor flange, 2" rigid black pipe, threaded on one end, washers, a die grinder, drill press and a puller. Tape shim to flange, mark pattern, remove shim, center punch and drill. It worked good on mine.

  12. I always worked hard at keeping great relations with my parents & it paid off over & over...........I was the "good son"! Older brother is a big softie, so always had a good relation, just had is own issues in life that affected his rational relations with them. Younger sister is an addict, so she was always a rollercoaster of good times & bad times, even right up to both of their deaths. As executor, she made my life hell for over 2 years......I finally gave up on her. Younger brother is/was a little high maintenance, but a good guy, rubbed both Mom & Dad the wrong way on

  13. Have yours rebuilt. I have a local shop that does nothing but motors, alternators and generators. They rebuilt my Sprite alternator for less than $100, paint and all. Boyle Future Tech in Auburn, CA. Or, if you must buy a new one, buy from someone like Mini Mania who knows their parts - https://www.minimania.com/SI/SearchText/generator

  18. That was done ostensibly to paint the interior roof. So I got it all ready to go... And then decided not to... 😁 See, after going back and forth on the glossy paint in the engine bay (after initially wanting satin paint), I decided it was best not to make that "mistake" in here. I'm going to go ahead and paint the floor with the POR-15 I have left, then get some in satin black to paint the roof. The floor will likely be covered with carpet eventually, but the roof will be visible while driving, so...

  20. Finally got going on this one. First a router template... Then some 1/2" thick walnut... Got those two piece cut out and routed, then started on attaching them to the wheel. On the last wood wheel, there were some glue "stains" visible through the resin that I was pissed about. So this time I "glued" the two halves together with resin instead of wood glue... 😄 After it cured... Then some routing... Could not route where the spokes are

  21. Had the chance to see one of these lift off from Elmendorf AFB, AK once when it was super fucking cold. Made it even weirder. Anything under -30 F gets a big can of nope.

  22. Here’s another good one. Capable of nearly Mach 6 with a total flight ceiling of 67 miles (USAF & NASA say ‘space’ starts at 50 miles above sea level) the X-15 was a monster for both minutes it could fly before running outta fuel. Just like me in the sack. Best two minutes ever.

  25. TJ..... 'I Am Legend'... and if I had known it was a remake of the classic Charlton Heston 'The Omega Man' I probably wouldn't have seen it. Crappy SFX but a great story premise. John.... Hard to say now what the cause was... reaction to the vaccine or catching co-vid just after taking the vaccine but before an immunity was mounted. Eventually she would have caught co-vid without a vaccination. That's inevitable now as apparently even those vaccinated can carry it? The outlook isn't good then either. I can say who to blame for all this though.

  26. It's all coming back to me now. I had to make some small bushings for both of the bottom ears so I could use the existing L20 alt. bracket. I think I could have drilled and tapped the front bolt, and drilled the rear hole for larger bolts, but I wanted to make it run. I didn't have time and wasn't where my tools are.

  28. In the very rural part of WA I’m from there’s a couple churches that require carry. If I ever go back there I’ll try to remember to take a picture of the “Know Guns, Know Jesus” and “no guns no salvation” signs there. There’s only about 400 people in the town and let’s just say it’s not a place you’d want to fuck around in. (I can almost hear the banjos from here)

  29. We have signs here about that. My response has always been, I'd rather do a few months in jail than be dead. Only way they'll know I have it, is if I have to use it. 👍

  32. The right side mirror was an option back then, very rare to see one. Hard to find side view mirrors that screw onto the doors today and don't look like they fell off a 60s Ford Roadbarge.. For $39 get them.

  33. I am not using them in a 'real life' situation, but I do have a keltec 9mm sub2000 that I've put thousands of rounds though. Maybe a handful of 'stovepipes' but it's been a really fun plinker.
