  1. The city where I live, Peoria, has a hazardous waste disposal program two or three times a year. Once you’re signed up, you’ll receive an email each time that will let you schedule a pick up time for almost any automotive fluids (among other things). You then place the accepted material outside your garage or carport and they will pick it up, usually quite early. You will lose the jugs that contain the waste, but for me that’s a small inconvience. The program works so well that I don’t even attempt to dispose of my waste oil at an auto parts store anymore.
  2. I love the use of the fuel door to cover the water fill cap. Genius! No worry about resale. Most will think it has duel tanks! I didn’t realize the brushless Ryobi Drill had a threaded insert to accept a side handle. My old non brushless drill doesn’t have the ability to use a handle. if you’re ever in need of a hole saw for one time use, and don’t want to buy it, hit me up if the needed size is below about 3 1/2”? I have a large assortment of various sizes that I’ll loan you.
  3. Not sure what you’re cutting thru Kris but you may wish you had a side handle on your drill!
  4. Good find Steve! Much better price than I found. I bought the bulb I did based on the recommendation of someone that had good success with the one he bought.
  5. Nice work Kris! Your timing was perfect. I was just looking for some adhesive heat shields material for a project I’m helping a friend with. Thanks for the link
  6. Looks good Kris. Great component research and links as always
  7. Welcome. Do a search for “Tailgate table” and you’ll find lots of info. For example: Also look at the excellent DIY tailgate table articles by @theksmith
  8. Thanks, I ordered one today. I’m upgrading the Maglites that don’t see a lot of use and switching to the “new fangled” lights for lights that I use more often. @theksmith Since your in the Ryobi 18v camp you might appreciate this: JOMITOP 18v 19.2v 6v 9v 12v 24v Volt Led Flashlight Bulb Led Upgrade Bulb for Ryobi Milwaukee Craftsman 6-24 Voltage Lamp Maglite Flashlight DC Replacement Bulbs Led Conversion Kit https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BP5MT2X/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_7g7jEbACVMF15 I installed one of these in my Ryobi flashlight. It made a large improvement.
  9. Do you have a link to the conversion bulb you used? I put this led conversion bulb in a 2 cell Maglite about 4 months ago. 280 Lumen Firefly 3-6 Cell LED Upgrade for Maglite Flashlight https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VRFY2PT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_sRMjEb34CDGQZ Big improvement over the stock bulb. However, I paid about $14 for my bulb. They are up to almost $20 now.
  10. Happy Birthday Karen!
  11. Beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing them
  12. You did a fantastic job on the seat brackets! Too many people hack something like this together never thinking about what could happen in an accident. What did you use to polish the headlights? They look good. Will you please report how long it lasts? My experience with my daily driver Dakota in Michigan was that I could get the lens looking good but they never really lasted more than 6 or 7 months.
  13. At the risk of this sounding like “you know what you should have done”, I’ll show you what I used for my drawer dividers. My center divider is a fixed 3/4” bulkhead. I used this for strength since my drawer sides are 1/2 material. The rearmost, thinner, divider is full 1/4”, hardboard. I routed matching dados that would allow it to be positioned as needed. For example, the smallest space at the rear of the drawer is sized for a .30 ammo can which also fits an oil bottle very nicely. Since your drawers are assembled it wold be difficult to route a dado the full depth of the drawer. If you wanted to go this route and don’t have a trim router I’d be glad to loan you mine. The dado would still stop about 2? inches short of the bottom but that shouldn’t compromise the strength much at all.
  14. Adding washers is waaaay easier than the alternative if you get the drawer to case clearance too tight.
  15. Nice write up Kris. The tool looks good but I agree it seems a bit pricey unless you have several vehicles with multiple bolt patterns that you intend to use it on. The only question I have is, do their instructions speak to idea that you should be marking at least the approximate tire diameter on the tool? The way Iron Rocks Tool looks they are using a “one size fits all” notch. Ive never compared results with only one tape holding notch vs. holding the tape at the approximate tire diameter. We were always told to mark the tire diameter and that’s how I did it. It would be interesting to hear from @ob1jeeper on the theory or practical application of using a single notch vs a notch for tire diameter. Sorta like a 31” tire vs a 35” or 37” tire. I know our Jeeps aren’t a formula 1 car and we don’t set ride height with a micrometer but inquiring minds want to know. If someone on here is unfamiliar with the Jeep toe set method they should check out this link. https://wranglertjforum.com/threads/how-to-align-your-jeep-wrangler-tj.85/
