  1. Update. Not much has changed. Put a new radiator in it back in 2018 and just been driving it. Other than normal maintenance that has been it. Took it for a 3+hr drive to Bend area and camping trip in the dirt a couple weeks ago. Slogged it around, got it dirty, and packed it full of camping gear. Other than an occasional whine in 5th on the 63a and the seats falling apart a bit more just keep driving it.
  2. Modding the crossmember really is the more elegant way to do it. Basically, you made a 1980+ 1200 ute crossmember.
  3. Yeah, I was stoked. I had texted the guy for the engine bay pic to confirm and talked to him for a bit. If it had been cheaper, or maybe not so beat on, or somewhat closer I probably would have tried to buy it back as I never wanted it sold in the first place. I was very surprised to see a lot of the original stuff still on it.
  4. Holy necro thread. But to update I did actually find this car again back in March. Still running and driving around the San Francisco bay area 13 yrs after it was sold, more beat up than when I had it but with the same wheels amazingly. Guy was trying to sell it for $3500 which seemed a bit much and too far away, he wanted to get a family car. Looks like the same engine (A14) too, although the fucky wiring is not my doing at all.
  5. Damn, that's a lot of work to do an A14 swap. Does look very stock though. My old redneck ass just use to do them with about 20 minutes and a couple pieces of angle iron or barstock and call it good. 🤣
  6. Thankfully, not quite that far out, border of level 3 ended up being pretty much on my doorstep though. Shit has been crazy, last week was very stressful. Everything much better now. But between evacuation packing, shitty air, and keeping an ear to the scanner been less than fun.
  7. Honestly I hate theft. In fact I would be perfectly fine with shooting someone trying to rob me. Police defunding goal is nothing about getting rid of the police in reality, they just want to replace the police with their own morality policing based system. This is just the Russian Revolution happening all over again.
  8. Supposedly the same rotor part number for late B210 and 210s so likely will be the same (assuming pads are the same and I would be surprised if they were different).
  9. Mike is absolutely correct here. B210 and 210 struts are different but very similar. Rotors may be the same depending on year. Likely will interchange but no guarantees. http://datsun1200.com/modules/mediawiki/index.php?title=Strut http://datsun1200.com/modules/mediawiki/index.php?title=B310_Strut_Swap I would strongly suggest just going the 280ZX route. You can reuse the stock springs or lop off a coil or two depending on taste. If you don't feel like welding you can cut the cup off the B210 strut and just set it in the 280ZX cup, trim a little bit of the 280ZX strut cup to clear your inner fender and set the stock B210 spring in it. Comes out very close to stock height, I took I think a coil or two off mine when I did it but nothing drastic. Came out same height as when I later built up one as a coilover so never bothered (literally built it out and installed it only to realize it was the same ride height so reverted). 280ZX brakes work very well and will work with the stock master cylinder.
  10. Not for nothing but the current Pope is a piece of shit too. Except the difference from a lot of the "rich and famous" was that Trump did disassociate from Epstein when he found out about his "behavior" (1) and offered to help with the investigation (2). Big difference in character from a lot of other celebs who still associated with Epstein/Maxwell after 2009. (1) In his own words and from various sources corroborating this: “I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him,” Trump told reporters at the White House of Epstein during an appearance with Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. “I had a falling out a long time ago, I’d say maybe 15 years. “I was not a fan of his, that I can tell you.” https://nypost.com/2019/07/09/trump-barred-jeffrey-epstein-from-mar-a-lago-over-sex-assault-court-docs/ (2) "Edwards: Nothing at all. The only thing that I can say about President Trump is that he is the only person who, in 2009 when I served a lot of subpoenas on a lot of people, or at least gave notice to some pretty connected people, that I want to talk to them, is the only person who picked up the phone and said, let’s just talk. I’ll give you as much time as you want. I’ll tell you what you need to know, and was very helpful, in the information that he gave, and gave no indication whatsoever that he was involved in anything untoward whatsoever, but had good information. That checked out and that helped us and we didn’t have to take a deposition of him in 2009." https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/07/prosecutor-in-2009-epstein-case-said-donald-trump-was-the-only-one-who-helped-him/
  11. You consider the billionaire, president, married to a model as "mediocre" ? That is literally the exact opposite of the definition. I was applying those words to you based on your response. Your literal words. Your response to that was a deflection to criticism of someone else. I'm assuming from that you are not likely a big proponent of "personal responsibility". How absolutely surprising. Which I will note your comment still does not address anything I actually said in any logical manner.
  12. I usually make a decent effort to cite my sources when I make a statement. I still can be wrong or course, but at least my statements are based on the best available knowledge and reasoning that I have access to. In general, that would mean the "confidence" that the statement I make is closer to the "objective truth" is higher than an unsourced ass pull comment would be. Especially, comments and opinions based on "feelings" not facts. When working with partial or by necessity less verifiable information, you can weight the statements with regards to their likely accuracy. It is not a perfect system of course but it allows for a logic based way of dealing with imperfect systems (like life in general) and building up enough information, direct or supporting, to inform your "model" of the world.
  13. Awww, that is the best response you've got? No facts, no sources, not one shred of logic, not even any effort. Nothing to support your position except pure imaginative fiction based on your feelings and one lame boasting image purporting your level of "crazy". How utterly mediocre.
  14. And the reason I didn't include Trump is because it looks like he wasn't involved, I'll give you the short version and the sources because I base my statements on FACTS. 1. Giuffre outright states Trump never did anything with here (as opposed to those who did) and she never witnessed him do anything with anyone else. The court documents do NOT implicate him at all but do implicate Clinton and Andrews. In fact the reporter for this actually made shit up about Trump which Giuffre adamantly denies. Giuffre testimony: "In a partial transcript of a confidential video deposition unsealed today by a federal judge, Virginia Giuffre, one of the women who accused now-convicted millionaire pedophile and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein of sex crimes, said previous news reports by journalist Sharon Churcher detailing her interactions with now-President Donald Trump were “not true.” During the newly-unsealed deposition, attorneys asked Giuffre whether statements printed about her or attributed to her in Churcher’s work were true. “It’s true that he didn’t partake in any sex with us,” Giuffre said of Trump. “It’s not true that he flirted with me. Donald Trump never flirted with me.” When asked again later if Trump had indeed flirted with her, Giuffre said, “He didn’t. That’s inaccurate.” Giuffre was also asked about this statement attributed to her regarding Trump: “He’d laugh and tell Jeffrey, ‘you’ve got the life.'” “I never said that,” Giuffre explained in the deposition. “I didn’t physically see [Trump] have sex with any of the girls, so I can’t say who he had sex with in his whole life or not, but I just know it wasn’t with me when I was with other girls,” Giuffre went on to say. https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/virginia-giuffre-jeffrey-epstein-accuser-claims-reporter-embellished-many-donald-trump-connections/ https://nypost.com/2020/07/03/virginia-giuffre-cried-tears-of-joy-after-ghislane-maxwells-arrest/ https://www.westernjournal.com/explosive-court-documents-make-epstein-allegations-clinton-dershowitz-prince-andrew-leave-trump-unscathed/ https://milnenews.com/2019/08/10/jeffrey-epstein-victim-testifies-that-donald-trump-was-not-involved-at-all/ 2. Trump outright called up the Epstein prosecutor in 2009 to render any help possible. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/07/prosecutor-in-2009-epstein-case-said-donald-trump-was-the-only-one-who-helped-him/ https://nypost.com/2019/07/09/trump-barred-jeffrey-epstein-from-mar-a-lago-over-sex-assault-court-docs/ 3. Trump never flew on Epstein's plane to "the island", the only flight recorded for him was from Palm Beach, Florida, to Newark, New Jersey (that's about a 2 hour flight or short hop). Bit different than Clinton and Andrews who have multiple flights outside the country recorded and pictures with underage girls. "In 1997, now-President Trump flew on a plane belonging to jet-setting financier Jeffrey Epstein, joining the recently accused child sex trafficker on a trip from Palm Beach, Florida, to Newark, New Jersey, court documents unsealed Friday revealed."...."Trump and Epstein were neighbors and friends in Palm Beach in the 1990s, though they eventually had a falling out. " https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/new-epstein-flight-logs-show-trump-flew-on-his-plane-in-1997 4. Pictures of Trump with Maxwell or Epstein are at Public Events with many other people, many times on Trump properties (i.e., a party, fashion shoot etc....). As opposed to pictures of Clinton and Andrews which are on Epstein's private plane with underage girls. See the difference. https://www.forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2020/07/21/heres-every-time-donald-trump-and-ghislaine-maxwell-have-been-photographed-together/#33ec494f183d 5. Now on the speculative side the biggest reason we can say there is nothing there proof wise with Trump and Epstein/Maxwell is because if there was it would have already been used against him by the Democrats. So after years of digging up any dirt they can, the Left has NOTHING about this linking Trump to any wrong doing tells me there is likely nothing there.
  15. The Podesta emails where definitely full of code words. My personal theory is it was for hard drugs and the whole child trafficking bit was a red herring thrown out by the involved parties to muddy the waters and make everything look like wild conspiracy theories. But let's not forget there have been actual huge sex trafficking rings involving famous hollywood people and it all kind of disappeared from the public's attention. https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/06/19/leader-of-cult-involving-hollywood-actresses-found-guilty-of-sex-trafficking-racketeering/ Remember Epstein was convicted once, and there are literal pictures of Prince Andrew with underage girls and Ghislane Maxwell (image below), not to mention witness testimony. His ousting from the Royal family definitely seems to be connected. Multiple witnesses and flight logs also link Bill Clinton to this too as well as pics with Clinton with his arm around another underage girl that has come out about this (image below). So I think at this point it there is enough evidence to say that there are rich elites who mess with kids because they can. https://stillnessinthestorm.com/2020/07/ghislaine-maxwell-documents-unsealed-allegations-against-prince-andrew-bill-clinton-others-fbi-knew-had-evidence-of-the-crimes-for-years/ https://www.the-sun.com/news/us-news/224545/bill-clinton-jeffery-epsteins-ghislaine-maxwell-lolita-express/?utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=sunustwitter&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1578496843
  16. Vetbond or "tissue adhesive" Basically super glue but slightly different polymer so it works a bit better with tissue (N-butyl cyanoacrylate or octyl cyanoacrylate depending on brand). Intended for animal use but is already sterile and comes with a nice applicator. Used to use a lot of it at my old work and we would have partial bottles that were no longer acceptable to be used for surgery (animals) that needed to be "disposed of". You can buy it off Amazon but it does a get a bit pricey compared to regular superglue but is compatible with internal use if needed, does seem to "burn" less than generic superglue. For larger stuff I've used "duct tape" cut to strips to pull wounds together (alternating strips), did that when I sliced the crap out of my finger a few years ago. If you get the option adding some suture kits to your first aid kit is always good. I keep one of my old surgery kits that was EO sterilized but we never got around to using in my home kit.
  17. Preach it. I remember having the uh.. moment when someone said 40 yrs ago in the 80s and my brain had to do the wait that wasn't...oh it was.
  18. Anyone know what the legal implications of a Mayor taking part in a riot against the Federal police?
  19. The numbers are all kinds of fucked https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2020/07/17/are-the-numbers-on-a-surge-of-wuhan-coronavirus-numbers-being-cooked-n2572688 Relevant bit: July 15 The State of Texas today had to remove 3,484 cases from its Covid-19 positive case count, because the San Antonio Health Department was reporting “probable” cases for people never actually tested, as “confirmed” positive cases.- TDHS What other departments make this same mistake?
  20. I used a short 280ZX shifter and flipped the plastic bit with spring in the center around for the right height. I like the short shifter.
  21. This Stock one off a 210 is quite nice it has a metal bracket that the plastic bottle slides into and mounts almost anywhere. Autozone and ebay carry cheap chinese copies (~$35) ones in CAN format (similar to the chasebays) or you can just get a generic plastic one for usually >$20 from a bunch of different places (Autozone, Amazon, ebay, etc...).
  22. “Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor.”― Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers “When you vote, you are exercising political authority, you're using force. And force, my friends, is violence. The supreme authority from which all other authorities are derived.”― Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers
  23. Oh, what a shame. That would just be horrible if Twitter failed.
  24. So Americans should spend their tax dollars and their lives to keep Canadians and the rest of the world safe? Maybe the rest of the world should stand on its own feet and not expect the US to be the world police. Do you know why many countries have minimal military spending? Because the US has bases in those countries and spends American tax dollars to protect those countries. All the while those countries shit on the US. Now it is in most part enlightened self-interest as it serves to protect American power across the globe. If you really want to go do that path then maybe the US just says fuck it those countries that have minimal military that we protect are now American territory. Maybe Futurama was right then. "The United States has the largest known deposits of oil shale in the world, according to the Bureau of Land Management and holds an estimated 2.175 trillion barrels (345.8 km3) of potentially recoverable oil." Last estimate I heard was about >100yrs worth depending on extraction and processing technology. Saudia Arabia, Russia and the US are the top 3 exporters, SA is usually first but it varies from time to time. However, SA is on reasonably good terms with the US at this time because of their economic power. But even they are planning for the end of oil, you can see it in the build up of their infrastructure and trying to develop something other than oil and sand as national products. "Briefly, in June, the U.S. eclipsed Saudi Arabia in monthly oil exports (as a result of a spike in shale production) before ceding the top spot to the longtime leader. Currently, the U.S. places third after Saudi Arabia and Russia, in terms of annual oil exports by country. However, the U.S. is expected to take over the runner-up spot from Russia, placing second in a list of all exporters on an annual basis by 2024, according to forecasts from the International Energy Agency." I agree blowing up bad people at times is necessary. I disagree that most of the actions we are taking in the M.E. currently have anything to do with that though, it is protecting oil interests (banker interests) at this point and feeding the economic war machine. Very few people on the other side of the world are capable of doing much to hurt us, or do you forget 9/11 was carried out by Saudis mostly but we beat the shit out of Iraq and Afghanistan for it. This was all a power play to play tic-tac-toe for Iran. The reason Bolton had such a butthurt against Trump is he shut down the attack Iran plans. A country we have already fucked up once before. It is much more difficult for people in the M.E. to kill American soldiers if there aren't very many American soldiers in the M.E.
