Gone already..

JUST finished that panhard rod. Decided to checkout the Waterfront as we have some FRESH streets ( they added an industrial area off Tift St./Fhurman BLVD that runs into Lackawanna NY )

I dunno WHERE it went! I KNOW it was on when I first starter playing around.. Things were nice and tight.. steady.. I stopped to take some pics ( the ones I'm posting ) .. When I was heading back I went to hang it out.. bouncing happened.. Stopped and took a look, thought I broke something..

Whole bar is gone.. WTF?!?!

So I drove down the road looking for any signs of it.. Its just GONE, like the files on a mac.. GONE!

I'll just make another one tomorrow. Its a stupid 3/4 bolt, 2bushings, 32 inches of pipe, 2x 2-inchID hunks of pipe and some welding/tapping. 1hr work, max.

I should have run the buffer over this thing before taking it out. All sorts of handprints on it. I still haven't done anything to it since I painted it. Need to use some 1500grit and a buffer to smooth it all out.

I had some problems a while back. My eyes are Photo-phobic. Bright sunlight gives me migraines and such so.. I avoid doing photo work during the day. I think I would actually suck at it to be honest ( daytime photography that is. )

Its lighter in one picture, darker in the other.. I really need to use some 1500grit on that whole side and clean it all up.

Yep. Twisting up new ones soon. They were ' In my way ' when I was doing the rod setup.

i had a day like that....

my stereos head unit has a thermal shut off that cuts the main power when it gets too hot.
i get in the truck on a warm summer day and i start to wonder why the radio doesn't work...
i took it out...check the fuses...rewired the speakers....all to find out that the thermal shut off kicked in cause i had the windows up all day and it got hot. all i had to do was hold the power button until it came on....

Not to sound rude or Elitist.. But anyone can ruin and buy a body-lift or an RCD kit and lift a truck. Making them stick to the ground is a totally different ballgame.

I never hated lifted trucks.. but they get bland really quick.. everyone has one..
