  1. They look kinda sketchy, like they were cobbled together. Probably fine, but they'd bother me even if there's no good reason for it.
  2. Without evidence that there's other crap floating around in there I'd call it done too.
  3. Yea, the 7 lug was in my mind and I briefly considered mentioning it.
  4. I think 3/4 ton and up of every brand has been 8 lug 'forever'. There might have been a time when they weren't.
  5. That's what I thought too, but I don't know them well enough to say for sure. I don't know what designates HD, guessing suspension and axle, maybe transmission model.
  6. I can attest to this, it started leaking right before he was leaving RacerXX X. 🙂
  7. Acetone can be deadly, I bet we can gather enough donations to buy you a lifetime supply.
  8. ....till it cums off the stripper and onto us.
  9. I bet the acetone addict is still proclaiming his love for his favorite Cuban(s)....and/or blaming at least one of them (me) for him being to big of a bitch to continue with his threads. If he had an ounce of confidence in his ability to bullshit people about his super skills/knowledge he wouldn't cave so easily to a person he claims is just an ignorant idiot.
  10. I've heard that you can wreck a paint booth just by spraying silicone into the air in it. Seems like a stretch, but maybe.
  11. Another factor may be that they're more likely to be blue collar workers and getting more daily exercise.
  12. My friend does e-waste and can line you up with something for damn near nothing, recycle value + shipping.
  13. Hang it on the wall of shame, or burry it in the rafters. If your good fender gets trashed then worry about it.
  14. Even if they were free it would be hard for me, but I might get over it.
  15. The reason I wouldn't have used silicone lube is that it stays slippery, and if it needs adhesive later it won't stick without a lot of cleaning/AKA nuking the surface off the planet. Think of grips, we use something that slips then dries to grip. Silicone sealant as a 'lube' woulda probably worked well. It's probably fine since it went in hard, but if it does loosen remember that the silicone lube will prevent adhesion so you'll need to remove it.
  16. Ahhh, now I see how the grommet works. I woulda used almost anything other than silicone lube, but it might be fine.
  17. If they had come up with caps for them it would be even better.
  18. I like it. I don't know that I'll fall in love, but I'll find out after I make one.
  19. The bend should have no impact since the diameter is considerably smaller after it.
  20. JBweld will cure that fender, as long as whatever you used before gets removed or covered past where it ends so that the JB isn't relying on what already failed.
  21. Not at all. Something in my mind says that I didn't use it right but I don't remember for sure. I've used it on other stuff and it did well.
  22. I don't remember if it was the same motor. He had his own special reason why lighter weight oil is better for running an engine hot and hard around a race track, apparently everyone else on the planet is too dumb to understand his brilliant reasoning. I think his theory was along the lines of the thinner oil being able to move through the system faster, which does have validity. All seemed good 'till the barrier broke down and parts melted. On the upside, he got a pretty multi color connecting rod and crank to hang on his wall of accomplishments.
  23. Reminds me of my buddy's bug. He installed a new engine and his friend drove it around the block. Next time he went to start it, nothing. I checked it and it's seized hard, can't even turn it with a prybar on the flywheel teeth. The oil pump cover has a ton of sealant that oozed out, guessing the same amount oozed in and fucked the motor. He's dropping it off for a teardown in January, then I should know for sure. Another buddy smoked a new hot rodded 4.6L Mustang motor. He pre-filled the oil filter so the pump couldn't evacuate the air to prime itself. By the time he asked me and I told him what to do it was too late. It made oil pressure, but it was knocking.
