    Using what you got to bust a nut.........

    Not what I was expecting based on the title, however I’m not disappointed. Thats some big hardware!

    Good gun day in Cali..mag ban is ruled unconstitutional. 

    If they have a rivet through the side of the mag body you should be able to just drill the rivets out. They just use the "nub" as a stop for the follower. If the base plate is riveted on, you will have to drill the rivet and take the base plate off. There is likely a dowel or plastic stop inside.

    GPS App

    Avenza maps. Once you download the app you can go to the "store" and get the BLM Imperial Sand Dunes map file. It will show where you are in the dunes even without cellular.

    Weird things you see at work or anywhere else

    1 old ratty looking piece of rope run over the top of the load and doubled back was the only thing holding it together.

    SxS dune roll video for analysis

    First attempt at 1:00 looked a little hairy almost like it started to tip but he powered through. 2nd picked a more direct line further up the dune. 3rd run he was aimed a little lower and slower, turned uphill to correct his line and rolled. You're fighting gravity being on a hillside. Without speed to keep you "stuck" and attempting turning uphill you have a lot of physics working against you. Maybe tires would make some difference but I think that was a technique problem.

    It's Saturday 3/9/19 what are you doing this weekend?

    Just got to our air bnb in Hilo, Hawaii. It’s not glamis but I think I’ll be able to tolerate this place for the next week. 🤙

    The Coobster took a fall

    Sucks to hear about anyone getting hurt out there. Hope he heals up quickly. Google maps pin is a good idea. I also have motion x gps. It’s $1.99 for apple, not sure about android. Gives you coordinates as soon as you open it.
  8. Yeah. To be fair, I had to wait about 10 days to drop it off. Then it sat for a couple weeks while I waited for insurance to get their crap together(it was over Christmas/New Years so that delayed things), but it only took about a week once the repairs were actually started.
  9. I’ve had work done at the former drew ford la Mesa body shop. No experience now that it’s a fix auto. Recently got my Range Rover repaired at Philip thearles in Santee after I got rear ended. They aren’t the cheapest, but did a great job with a fairly quick turnaround. Seamless repair in the aluminum quarter panel.

    It's Saturday 2/16/19 what are you doing this weekend?

    First pic is how it was purchased from a glamis duner last year. Second was today. Now has Running water, leds inside and on the right outside and rear. Stereo with outside speakers, charging ports (on left wall by counter). Leveling jacks on the rear (for now) Just put carpet in today. Might be a bad idea, but it’s commercial grade carpet that hopefully will clean easily and make the floor less cold. Oh, and it was free. Still a lot I want to do but it’s a lot more habitable than it was. Might do a little build thread on it sometime with some better pics (was getting dark today)

    Do You Know How To Tow?

    Had a friend who rented a U haul trailer to haul his rail. No, it wasn't a car hauler, It was one of the 6x12 utility trailers. Well as you can imagine he couldn't fit the ass end through the gate, so he loaded it nose in, with the back wheel on the tailgate of the trailer. 😳 I didn't witness the tow but I heard it got pretty squirrely, was a 45mph tow after a butthole pucker incident. Same friend lost a tire on his tow vehicle in ocotillo, swapped it for the spare, and lost a second tire in El Centro. I went to pick up his trailer (not a Uhaul, thankfully) so he could get tires in the morning (this was about midnight). He only had a 4 pin plug so I towed his trailer to Gordon's at 2 in the morning with no lights, no brakes, and 2 glow sticks zip tied to the back while he camped out in the Lucky's parking lot.

    2019 Sandy Golf Tournament

    My small group is planning to go that weekend. We usually go to wash 10/11 but we will probably come hang out with y’all. Sounds fun and would be nice to meet some fellow duners.

    Looking for help

    Is it possible to convince him to write it off and try to get a different car? I know it's probably his baby, but limited mobility, limited income, and health issues doesn't sound like a good place to be in to have a project car. There are plenty of cheap reliable cars that shouldn't take much maintenance and would be more comfortable(crown vics come to mind) and reliable.
