    FWIW, I looked into this a little while ago. Bob How to bring the shine back to Powder coat from @Mee on Glamis Dunes forum. use of color ru312  (get from an auto paint supply) Clean white 100% Cotton rags Just wipe with ru312 on rag until you feel it get soft and then stop!!! Note: it will keep getting sticky until it makes the rag stick to it ...that’s just a little too much wiping k Wait 2-3 hrs then hand wax....boom goes the... you know.. When you are wiping the powder it will get soft and you are pressing the pours closed again and you need to let it set to harden up then wax it to remove the ru312 and add shine.... It’s that easy, as you may know , I did this to my car for 5 yrs and it looked like the powder job was new all the time If you saw the poster in OMF" s booth of my car , that pic of the car , the car was 4 years old looked petty good? DO NOT USE COLORED RAGGS... the Iink in them will come off on to your car from this thread:

    After reading this thread I feel like you need an intervention......... I’ll be the ahole and point out the elephant in the room that a couple of posters have eleuded to. You need to understand you are dumping and will be continuing to dump a PILEof money into what looks like a home built chassis. That chassis is not worthy of an LS. You still have a torsion housing from a VW in that chassis right? You’re building a lopsided car. Cut your loses, salvage the parts you can and search the for sale adds for a good quality chassis built by a reputable builder with tried and true correct chassis geometry, appropriate sized tubing with good triangulation. Of course resale value can also be a factor. I know you are hindered by your location but don’t let that stop you from haveing a property built car that will provide you and your family with as safe as possible experience that will take you out in the dunes so you can enjoy the time you have running the car rather than wishing you had done it right looking at your family sitting in lawn chairs while you work in vain trying to cobble some morphodite car back together in an attempt for at least one decent ride. Sorry, not trying to discourage you but we all want you to succeed in your quest for a good car, not become bitter and hate the predicament you get yourself into and disappoint yourself and your family. There have been many cars for sale that are in various states of disassembly for a great price on here. I don’t know what he is currently getting for a chassis but Jesse at JP Designs sells a very good car for a great price and will sell it in about any stage you want to buy it. If my post offends you I’m sorry that’s not my intent just ignore it and I won’t respond again.

    Little update!!! Thanks for the references! Today I pulled the trigger on some equipment from Lion courtesy of Stugots! 32' gas grill, single side burner, double doors, double drawer, sink and faucet. Grill came with a cover, rotisserie, griddle and a smoke box. Won't say what the $$ was out of respect but I am very happy with the deal! Thank you Randy! Enjoy your set up too! "um what if we just double the order?" "Oh, and add the in-counter ice chest too!"

    These are fun... Nobody owned a purebred dog. When a quarter was a decent allowance........and made with real silver ! You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.......made with real copper.....looking to see if it was a 1943 tin penny ! Your Mom wore nylons that came in two pieces. You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time. And you didn't pay for air. And, you got trading stamps to boot ! Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box. ( Not to mention Cracker Jacks ! ) It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents. They threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed...and they did it ! When a 57 Chevy was everyone's dream car... to cruise, peel out, lay rubber, or watch submarine races: and people went “steady” No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the doors were never locked ! Lying on your back in the grass with your friends and saying things like, “That cloud looks like a.....” Playing baseball with no adults to help kids with the rules of the game Stuff from the store came without safety caps and hermetic seals because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger And with all our progress, don't you just wish, just once, you could slip back in time and savor the slower pace, and share it with the children of today. When being sent to the principal's office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited the student at home. Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat ! But we survived because their love was greater than the threat. As well as summers filled with bike rides, Hula hoops, and visits to the pool, and eating Kool-Aid powder with sugar. Didn't that feel good, just to go back and say, “Yeah, I remember that ?” I am sharing this with you today because it ended with a Double Dog Dare to pass it on. To remember what a Double Dog Dare is, read on. And remember that the perfect age is somewhere between old enough to know better and too young to care. Send this on to someone who can still remember Howdy Doody and The Peanut Gallery, the Lone Ranger, The Shadow Knows, Nellie Bell , Roy and Dale, Trigger and Buttermilk. Candy cigarettes Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water inside. Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles. Coffee shops with tableside jukeboxes. Blackjack, Clove, and Teaberry chewing gum. Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers. Newsreels before the movie. Telephone numbers with a word prefix...( Yukon 2-601). Or, some of us remember when there were just 4 numbers with no word prefix at all. And, nearly everyone had a party line. Peashooters Hi-Fi's & 45 RPM records. 78 RPM records! S&H Green Stamps. Mimeograph paper. The Fort Apache Play Set. Do you remember a time when... .....decisions were made by going “eeny-meeny-miney-moe ?” .....mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, “Do Over! ?” .....”race issue” meant arguing about who ran the fastest ? .....catching fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening ? .....it wasn't odd to have two or three “best friends ?” .....having a weapon in school meant being caught with a slingshot ? .....Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute commercials for action figures ? .....”Oly-oly-oxen-free” made perfect sense ? .....spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for giggles ? .....the worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team ? .....war was a card game ? .....baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle ? .....taking drugs meant orange - flavored chewable aspirin ? .....water balloons were the ultimate weapon ? If you can remember most or all of these, then you have lived !!!!!!!

    So when I purchased my blazen the battery compartment had a wall separating it from the rest of the trailer, was a bunch of empty space over the Generator, just could not believe it my Warrior used every space they could find for the buyers over the generator is in all my trailer how I stored the Camping floor mat, but was a huge pain going into the battery compartment, so after 3 years I just could not take it anymore, took about 45 minutes from start to finish, got the door on ebay, Lippert Slam Latch, and love my new Milwaukee jig saw 12V used the door to mark the spot and drilled a couple of holes and went to town with the jig saw,

    I tighten my 930s to 45 and I've never ever had one come loose. They are still tight when I disassemble them at the end of the season.

    As lincster has already 'splained, midboard hubs take the cv which would normally be mounted on a stub flange on the inboard side of the hub assy, and moves it entirely inside of the hub. The bearings for midboard hubs are massive and can carry much more load than a microstub hub can. The bearings are bigger in diameter than the outside of the cv. This gets rid of the stub axle which typically holds the hub bearings together. It adds about 6" to your axle length and allows your arms to travel much farther without running into cv angle problems. My car has angles in the low 20s at full droop, that would not be possible with microstubs. My car has 31" axles but is only 94" wide. That would be impossible to do with a microstub setup without having the car be well over 100" in the rear. Midboards are very spendy though. Tatum's 930 midboards are $2250, their 934 midboards are $3500. Due to their huge diameter they require arms to be built using special hub plates. My arms have plates about 10 1/2" tall and are only 930, the 934 plates are 12" tall. Outboard hubs are the ultimate way to go but an entry level set will cost you $7500, I don't see used sets for sale hardly ever. Outboard hubs put the CV joint on the outside of the wheel hub which allows an even longer axle and reduces the angles down into the teens. There is so much that goes into making an off road car/ sand car reliable, IT IS NOT JUST BUYING A BUNCH OF BIG PARTS AND BOLTING IT ALL TOGETHER. A reliable off road car has correct geometry and shock placement with USEABLE wheel travel. If your axle angles go over 24 or 25 degrees when at full droop, you should probably strap the arms up so they don't exceed that, anything greater than that is unuseable IMO. You will tear up your CV joints whether they are 930 or 934. The reason I mention this is because the OP's car will be going under the knife to install the bigger trans and engine and the fabricator must place them at the right height or else you will not get the right amount of wheel travel relative to your CV angles. The lower in the chassis the better. There is a reason that some of the big name cars (Funco) are so expensive and perform so well, it is because they have been engineered to work well. Again there is nothing wrong with 934 CVs, they are bad ass for sure. Given the design of the chassis you have now, it might be wise to spread out your dollars into other upgrades rather than into just the drivetrain. there are many (MANY) lesser powered sand cars that run away from the big dogs in the dunes because their suspension is set up so much better. I only mention this because with a V8 you will be driving a lot faster than you have been and with speed comes the necessity for better suspension (if you want mama to ever go with you again). Good discussion guys.

    I couldn't watch it till I got home from work around 11pm Sun night. I saw a couple things on IG and stopped looking at it. Was too tired to watch the whole episode that night and figured I'd watch it Monday. Couldn't see shit on the TV in the daytime. I really appreciated a few accounts I follow on IG saying swipe if you've seen the episode and don't swipe if you haven't. Finally watched the rest last night and was not disappointed at all. And just so it's been said... the books are better. Sucks the show strayed so far from them but that's TV vs. print.

    Types of hubs. Google midboards and you will see pix and understand. The CV is mounted inside of the hub itself. Midboards give the ability to have longer axles, i.e. more travel. Plus if you lose a CV, the tire doesn't come off the car. With stub axles, the tire comes off an passes you.

    That's like selling a 2d with new internals?at $3900, unheard of. Damn good deal. Those other 3 items are average $200 cost used each on a good day. Also, the adapter (934 to 930) is only at the trans side, you already have the 930 setups... especially when you can inspect, clean up and resize the axles you already have. No brainer all around. Ok, back to my story... I built a V3.net frame off their pdf plans on a flat patio. Worked out great but the grief, mysery and pain along with the cash it took to just get a standing chassis (no rear arms) took way longer than I thought. A 2 seater Mosebilt frame with full body came up that was pretty much tabbed for everything, has a massive torsion bar (much bigger than what the V3 called for) for almost the same amount of money and invested time that I had in the V3. Did I jump on it? Hell yeah! I now drive the hell out of that and the V3 frame cornered up to one side of my garage has a undetermined destiny at this point. Not sure if I'll ever get around to it. I want to but the amount of energy, time and money it took to even get the 2 seater completed (which is a loose term) is well distant in my future. I've seen some sweet unfinished 4 seater frames come and go on the cheap that had my head spinning again!! But how do I explain to the wife yet another frame lol you can put a V8 in that frame but in no way was it built for it. Just because you can put one in it, doesn't mean you should. Definitely can be beefed up though. There are some old threads in here that speak of that very thing. Hence my mission to build one.

    Not really, but neither will the 2D. The problem is the T1 stubs. The money sent on 930-934 adapters can be spent on new shafts and re-assess after you have a couple of seasons in it if you want to spend the ~$4k going to 934 the right way. It's not just buying 934s and axles and calling it day. It's new arms ($400-1000, depending), re-doing your mounts, getting a micro-stub or mid-board hub/brake kit ($1600 to start) and the axle kit ($1300 as J Alper says). On top of that, going micro-stub will net more travel, so you'll be tempted to either re-valve and re-spring and move the shock mount closer to the pivot, or go with longer shocks. 934 to T1 is plain stupid to me. In the Jeep world, it'd be like going with an Atlas II or N205 and leaving the D35 out back. You'll have this big giant axle setup (which will shock load that poor T1 stub more than a 930 setup) plugged into a puny 12 spline T1 stub.

    So we lost all of the Dothraki One more dragon Edd from the Nights Watch Flaming Sword dude Jorrah Little Lady Moremont ( She did go out with a bang though) The Red Witch and Theon. Not sure if Sam made it out. Was surprised more didn't get killed. And yes that was probably the most stressful hour and a half of TV i have ever experienced. And yes when Aryia came flying out of nowhere I screamed, but when he stopped her my heart stopped........ Then she did the bad ass dagger drop to the other hand and becomes the biggest badass in all of Westros.

    This guy knows why gas prices are high... he supported the gas tax increases... and will support more of them. Make no mistake, these idiots, are not really "idiots" they are educated people. The sad part is how much they believe the general population to be full of idiots. The general masses in CA, who also supported the gas tax increases, see this headline and think "wow, he is looking out for us"

    I think maybe stating using a air temp sensor in the blower so it can read air intake temps and make adjustment to the tune because of the temps may be a more accurate statement. Most of the blowers have a provision. On the Mefi many tuners will tell you they can't get into the computer because they are locked from another tuner. We have all the software needed to get into them.
