You missed one on this page. Too many others throughout this forum that are still here but thank you @ Tanis for at least trying to do what you can. I stopped reporting because so much spam was simply not being deleted/ cleaned up.

Anyway... user-name CLG at the top of this page is another one. Been here along with the link for almost a year.

Rebuilt my EDC. Owning it for several years, the fact that I can take it apart to clean/regrease/thread lock to renew it has been great as this has been the 3rd time. Literally the best box cutter one can have because it has a knife blade on the other end.

Anyone whose interested in getting one, take it apart and thread lock all of the screws including the ones for the belt clip.

I picked up Kona Remote160 ebike. I haven't rode a mtn bike in 6-8 yrs. Work has taken over my life with no free time. Hopefully that will change with the next mail count. I would love a lil more time with the wife and my girls (also some free time for me). Or D'Amazon could burn and rot. Lol!!!

That is a useful looking tool there. I have had so many shitty box cutters it is shameful to think about

Will definitely be getting an e-bike one of these years. Feels inevitable. For now I just keep cranking...analog

Ran the trail with my bro and a friend Sunday. Haven't ran a truck in over a month due to work. It was great and 3 hrs of fun.
Rode the ebike yesterday. It was awesome. Like I haven't been off the bike for 6-8 yrs. First ride on any bike in probably a year. I need to dial the bike in just a lil more.
I get to go back to work today. Yeah!! Not really unless D'Amazon has disappeared from the planet.

Last night I got a wild hair and reassembled my old TCS Eclipse tube chassis. Pondering on electronics to use.

I had the left shelf longways, but I was able to adjust a surround sound speaker that's mounted on the wall outta the way so this display looks a lot better now.

Got to swap out a broken shock/strut on my '07 Tacoma. I've never seen a shock shaft break above the weld! While I had it apart and took a closer look, it looks like I'll be changing the upper ball joint and sway bar links very soon. Hurry up Spring, get here!

Luckily the day that I changed it, it was in the 40's with sun instead of the cold and snow that I usually have here.

Thanks for the info!

Someday I'll make the move to the Bilstein's. For now it still has the stock SR5 suspension. I do like the ride that the SR5 suspension has, but I love the look of the Bilstein and how beefy they are. My only concern with the upgrade is losing the smooth ride I have now.

This was a pic before the shock fix. The front end was hanging low!

Your truck was torn between being a low rider or a 4x4

As for ride, as long as you donít pre-load the spring too much (I prefer a spacer on top of the strut mount for this reason if youíre wanting a lift or level) the ride will be greatly improved

I can personally vouch for improvement with high speed railroad crossings

Yeah it kinda reminds me of my old '76 Chevy Silverado. It was stuck in a permanent nose dive like pretty much all 2WD Chevy's!

I'll keep that in mind about the pre-load. Thanks!

First coat. Tamiya metallic blue for the first coat, the rest will be brilliant blue. Might back it with gunmetal or black.

^^ you are inspiring me to build a Yota Goro!

Played hockey this morning then ran my TRX4 in the afternoon and shot a bunch of vid for editing. Right now I am going to descend the basement steps and braze some steel.

Been a good day to be alive...
