It was said with plenty of room for interpretation but meant with the upmost respect. I only joke with people i respect.
Have you gotten into rivertops?
Well today I got everything done on the front bumper. Finally lol. Had to trim more of the grill then I wanted to though. I need to do a final clean up of the grill and repaint, wire the winch, lights and turn signals. Never did weigh the bumper, its effing heavy, but lighter then the rear bumper at 113lbs. All the lights have some type of securuty bolts on them.
Will be getting a good quality 1/0 wire for wench, no run will be over 5 feet, wench draws 475a at full 12k pull load. Still have to get the switch pro and sub panel made and mounted.
Don’t know it happened, and I’m quite ashamed about it, but the light bar is a bit over 1/8 inch lower on passenger side. I have it leveled with washers for now, but ill make a square spacer for it, it is what it is.
This bumper has clerances so tight it shocks me lol.
@CatFood THAT IS MASSIVE MIKE LOVELY JOB AND YEAH YOU WOULD SPOT THAT EIGHT OF AN INCH A MILE AWAY [JOKING] CREDIT TO WHERE CREDIT IS DUE
@HandyDave NOW DAVID IF ONLY YOU WOULD DO THE SAME FOR EVERYONE IN THE FORUM
My dad has been playin around more with the resin work mixed with the wood work. Hasnt done a full river top yet. Hes workin on getting a bigger shop built so he can have him a good area for the bigger and more speciality builds. I take the cutoffs and scrap pieces and use them for shotgun stocks, knife handles, picture frames for my leather art pieces and such like that.
Wholly crap, when you said you were going to make a bumper I kinda yup OK, who can just crack off a bumper…
But WTG sir that is the crazies bumper I’ve hats offs ya. Very nicely done and with a lot of class…
Got all the hats done for my nephews so i started on some cool stuff for my little nieces. Decided to make some bear shaped stuffed leather creatures. Heres first one. First pics is after most of sewing while animal was still flat and kinda creepy lookin. I used some embossed cow leather with alligator pattern.
Seconds pics are stuffed and finished i added some lime green leather lace for kinda wild hair style.
Kids are into creepy cool nowadays, thats awesome.
My 9-12 yr olds watch all kinds of dumb stuffed animal videos thanks to Five Nights at Freddys horror game.
What kinda dick would have told you that?
I beleave the actual term said dick used was “how to scare small children” by David Caudle the girls are getting creepy stuffed critters and the boys are getting hats with evil skull patches. Thats why im the cool fun uncle. But they also know the gifts and such stops around the age of 14 15 then its time for them to grow up and get a job
I’m dead LOL. Yesterday installed new oem motor mounts and trans mount. All I have to say is wtf toyota! Im a huge fan of toyota, but who ever designed the location and mounting of the motor mounts, com on man!
Today, was the alingment cam emilinators. As I was taking it apart yesterday I saw one of the poly bushings on the steering rack had blown out. WTF. I have no idea how that happened, considering all the others are fine. Was able to get replacement overnighted and got them before I started working on the 4runner today. Cam eliminators went in perfectly. Decided to run both cams in the center neutral position so I can get back into stock camber! Was running -1.5 degrees! Oem is 0 degrees !
But now my alignment is all sorts of messed up and thats another weekend I’ll have to work on it. But all this work today has kicked my butt hard. Last week at work was insanily busy and not being to sleep enough has cought up to me…
Oh yeah, also swapped my safe’s digital key pad/lock to a mechanical dial lock. That was stressful but easy. I didn’t was to lock myself out of my safe lol.
