Chris, have you used these mirrored backglass options before? They look tempting.

Not yet but I do have one for this game so it will my first.

Maverick finds his way in the TZ bin.
First he chews the outside. 27134202-EEC7-44F1-BE15-F70F321BECDC (resized).jpeg
Then he selects an old used shooter Lane plastic 5EDF6682-2DD1-4AF4-86D7-1A70B9911990 (resized).jpeg
Gets bored with that and contemplates what is next.

Nothing of value I promise

TZ is alive again.

#3255 14 days ago

TZ is an hour or two from competition. Implementing the requested mods neatly is a little bit tedious.
Building the mini took all day practically. Holes were drilled to pass the wiring through.

Ac is roughed in in the new addition.

When you get there, since I haven’t been able to find it in any documentation (and mine is missing), I’m curious what type, length, and size of fastener attaches the bridge to the mini-pf. Just that one single fastener where the bridge rails attach to the mini-pf upper entry.

Mainly curious what’s correct rather than just what fits.

I’m pretty sure that any HEP pin blows away the competition!!

High_End_Cooking! The twilight zone almost looks as good as those steaks! Another great looking pin. Thanks for your willingness to document all your work, I truly enjoy it!

How do the HEP's like their steaks?

Thanks.
Hopefully once I get my paint room back up and running,get through my vacation next week and the dust settles I can get back to a bit more thorough documentation.
Right now it is all over the place.

Rare and medium rare depending on who’s it is around here.

#3272 12 days ago

Dinner was great. Going to take a stroll through Lindley Park to let my food settle.

#3273 11 days ago

Finishing up the Fathom.
Not sure what to call it cabinet swap and shop out with corrections?

image (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpg
#3274 11 days ago

Looking good Fathom!

#3275 10 days ago

Lights are up in the new addition. I had eight but four is already blinding so I will put three in my old section and then use the left over as a parts light.

#3276 10 days ago

. . . revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night . . .

#3277 10 days ago

We have been so busy with other things Maverick has fallen in with the wrong crowd in our absence and joined a gang.

#3278 10 days ago

The value proposition must have been attractive to beat the plate of chicken tenders and ribeye he had for dinner last night.

#3279 9 days ago

TZ left today Fathom left yesterday.Both were for local or semi local guys.

I spent the morning taping.

Broke out the airless sprayer and the primer.

Drywall is primed.

#3282 9 days ago

The old section is a damn mess. This upgraded space will be a huge boost but it is pretty tough right now. Dragging out for longer than expected but you either want to do it yourself or pay to have it done.
On this build it have struck a 50/50 balance so I am getting what I pay for

image (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpg
#3283 9 days ago

Things always look like crap in the middle of a remodel. Looks like a wonderful space, It’s going to be great!

How do you ever get any work done?

Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

It happens around here somehow.
Painted the new addition just now.
Dreading the clean up though.

#3288 8 days ago

I remember when 8% was considered a strong beer! Inflation is a helluva thing!

#3289 7 days ago

Time to prep for vacation.

We have a 6 hour ride ahead in the morning.

That is easy enough but with Marshall and Maverick it gets more complicated.

First I need to clean my truck up. It is a big truck .True 4 door with a 8 f long bed.

All the construction and landscaping lately has made both the bed and cab a mess.
Vacuum the bed first it is carpeted with a bed rug. A1638A11-434E-485D-9219-B851CB7F9D16 (resized).jpeg

Bed is clean
8A7C8361-0045-4912-8453-252AFD3E5A08 (resized).jpeg
Next I need to select and load some workout gear.
Battle ropes,jump rope,slam ball and mid weight kettlebell along with an interval timer should make a small footprint but offer a wide range of possibilities.

Other needs are the rower and a bike. All that is loaded and taking just a little room.

#3290 7 days ago

Now for the cab of the truck.
It is not too bad.

Wash the mats.
AEE9A8B8-6FD4-465A-8298-9301C038C33F (resized).jpeg

Detailed tip on the lint.
Use a tack rag

#3291 7 days ago

What bike is that? Something that size would be great for RV trips vs. hauling my Trek Madone around. Some of the guys in one of my ride groups call me "Shamu", although I'm not sure if it is because of my weight or the color scheme of my bike.

BTW . . . Dude, you need to level that seat, or is it setup to ride extended wheelies?

#3292 7 days ago

Truck is nice and clean inside so I can stand the 6 hour trip in there.
617D52A2-A949-4F94-88D6-549D969D12EF (resized).jpeg

Next we have to get Marshall proof.
That is really challenging.
There are two or three things that are guaranteed when on the road with Marshall

1) You are not going to have the enough chargers for his numerous devices.

Got it image (resized).jpg
image (resized).jpg

2) He is going to have to piss at the absolute worst times or places. The middle of the night in a bad area,in the middle of nothing but farmland etc.

Start here. image (resized).jpg

Cut as shown for slash guard technology. image (resized).jpg

Cover edges with a double layer of tape
image (resized).jpg
Install in Marshall zone. JUST in case.
image (resized).jpg

He is going to need hand sanitizers every 30 minutes or so.
image (resized).jpg
They are going to forget his straw,fork or napkin at the drive thru!
Got that covered too.image (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpg

That is a Yooniq

The seat is pitched like that on purpose to encourage me to stand up as much as possible. I use it more as a fitness tool than for pleasure.

#3295 7 days ago

Now we can pack
Each person gets their own bin for their clothes.
I prefer these to luggage because the clothes stay flat and you can keep them on the hangers. Once packed they easily nest on top of one another but we will get to that later.
Right now Maverick is using it for something else.

Awesome, thanks for the link.

#3297 7 days ago

Everything non clothes or pre packaged is packed into stackable but also collapsible bins.
As we use things up while we are away we can the just break the bins down flat. 7A0D401C-7F56-4A30-8A95-5272409FB9AD (resized).jpeg64DA6305-A2A6-4E5A-95E9-2740671633B6 (resized).jpeg
This loads easily in the truck maintains a small but tall footprint.
image (resized).jpg
Still plenty of room haven’t even crossed the halfway point.

image (resized).jpg
#3298 7 days ago

I always take my own coffee maker.
image (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpg
I also take my own oatmeal bowl and spoon. It just does not taste or feel right out of any other

image (resized).jpg
#3299 7 days ago

Large mouth gatorade , powerade or ice tea bottle works well for emergency pee bootle and lid will screw back on to secure from spills.

#3300 7 days ago

I have that same coffee maker.
