  1. Poor Fred. Look at those ribs! Thankfully they got to him in time
  2. I just read through this again and really looked at the pictures. Your raptor liner turned out excellent! Your write up on the application of the liner is by far the best I’ve seen on the net. Your use of the Kilz primer, the real world experience of using the cheaper spray gun, comparison of the spray gun finish to the spray can finish, etc. are all excellent information. I bet this thread gets linked to on a lot of forums. I liked your wrench extender, but maybe not the price. I used this one last summer working with my brother in law. https://www.leevalley.com/en-us/shop/tools/hand-tools/wrenches-and-ratchets/67696-mechanics-wrench-extender It was comfortable in the hand seemed to fit well on the wrench handles we were using.
  3. Looks good. Gotta love a guy that welds in shorts!
  4. Kris, i cant see the third and second to last pics. is it me or the link?
  5. I just completed a 4 day backpacking trip to the bottom of the Grand Canyon with my sister and her 10 year old grandson. We planned our route to cover about 5 miles each day. The weather was absolutely prefect! It was the first time the 10 year old had hiked with a pack (15 lbs). First time backpacking and first time even seeing the Grand Canyon. FYI: I couldn’t stay with him hiking uphill!
  6. X2 Kris! Someone or some company is gonna claim this idea as their own.
  7. Dang! Talk about finishing up the details! it looks beautiful Kris. Especially with that 1/16” fixed. Lol I did wonder about the smell when I saw everything was installed. At least it’s not “horrible hot” anymore.
  8. The J8 had a seriously heavy duty swing gate. IIRC, it had an exterior exoskeleton that I’m sure was waaay stronger than the current JK gate. i always wanted to see if it could be a bolt on exchange for a stock JK gate. Sadly, I never got a chance to prove out my theory.
  9. To the best of my knowledge the J8 was an overseas only vehicle. We did engineering work on them but the ones I worked on wouldn’t pass US emissions standards, among other things. Perhaps Steve, @ob1jeeper can add more info.
  10. Dang! That must have been quite exciting. Glad you’re all ok
  11. Wow! That turned out nice. You did a great job spraying that, especially with the “cheap” gun. In my experience, you were smart to use the masking tape you listed. The home center tape doesn’t seem to be as good as it used to. I recently had to go with the 3m green auto painting tape for a project where the plywood edge needed to be a different color than the face. I just couldn’t get a clean line, even with Frog Tape. Thanks, as always, for the included links.
  12. Looking good! You have become a pocket hole screw master!
