Our lacquer and sealer set up

Still need to build a lid with hydraulic lifts like on a truck shell window and cover them up, keep dust out of the pumps. But otherwise they function perfect

I spent my 9 hour day in the spray booth watching lacquer dry and spraying more.  Two coats of sanding sealer and two coats of lacquer seem to be a happy medium for quality finish and not to time consuming.

After weeks of fighting pressure on my regulators and water from our air compressor I think I have it licked!!

I’ll take photos tomorrow but we plumbed low spots into our PEX air hoses and drain valves, at each air driven tool location we added the Housley water separators to each Quick connect

Now we drain the line in use for our spray guns before we spray and eliminate lots and lots of sanding as water and lacquer don’t play nice

Kobota orange!!! And did I see mention of Cummins?  I see that Nissan is putting them in Vans now! 

Jk.  Glad the motor came out easy and you were able to get the cam out with no fuss.  Plus now you can switch to a larger oil pan right?

This van has the Nissan Cummins motor, seating for 12 and 4x4, the tires on it are 35x12.50/18.   It was actually a decent looking rig really
Plus the roof tent, rear tire rack and so forth.

Dave, did they have a price on that thing? Had to have been through the roof. The titan with that engine is ridiculous.
It didn’t have a price tag.  I think they were more showing off the wears of that rig.    In the end it’s still a Nissan lol

I believe there is a country song that follows that line “ I wanna check you for ticks”

Good wheel choice, I think they had a black wheel option vs the polished aluminum.  Not sure if the black would be easier to re finish? Or if it meet the price point.  17x9 is the same wheel I have run for years. Works well

Raising kid choices!

I am very much a man of routine for the simple things in my life.   I follow the same thing every morning when possible

My wife on the other hand does not from my point of view


Each morning she is up before me getting ready for her day ( ladies take forever) the twins get up between 6-6:10 and start always fighting.   One thing they fight about the most is pants they don’t want to wear ( I insist they wear Levi type pants to day care not sweats or lounge type cloths to build that dress right type of foundation I fight regularly with the 11yr old boy) the second fight is over a fruit snack/cracker combo that mom makes for them each morning to take on the car ride to daycare

This is what usually wakes me up. Screaming kids!!! Which is much less than desirable.  I have suggested many times we go the few days of a battle of “no treats in the morning” and the routine of them getting treats will get broken and it can go back to being a reward instead of expected.    Mom continues to disregard advise and this morning both kids had a flop on the floor breakdown over who got what cup color for the damn crackers!!   

Dad now awake, cups removed from said children and treats are going in my mouth right now.   The next time I wake up with screaming kids I am moving to the basement.     

Less is more with young kids.  They don’t need choices they need shown what is right and choices can be made later.   
If I ask my son if he wants to put on socks to go outside he will tell me no he doesn’t and walk out into the cold garage.  If I tell him Max do you want to come into the garage? “Yes” than you need socks on.
Do you want to go out with dad to work? “No” that’s ok Max be good I’ll be back.  If he says “yes” ok you need Levi’s and socks and shoes.     

I can’t stand giving kids options they don’t really have a choice on.    I can’t stand offering choices that they don’t need

At work this week I was asked to make some custom sample colors for cabinets and my first thought was “YES I can make some custom cool Shiz and everyone will love it” sat back a minute and thought wait.  If I give them a crazy eight-ten step stain process sample some lady will come in love it but not want to pay for it and I will have to repeat the time consuming process on a whole kitchen.   I have some simple color choices in the basic colors of blue, brown, red, grey, black and so forth and we will see what the price options will be for others before I make samples and hang them on the wall

Choices fellas choices.    I want a hot cup of coffee my morning shower and NO screaming kids to start my morning off with a headache

Tate, who is saying I didn’t???

Ken I’d be leery. I had the exo grapplers on the dually and they are hard as a rock , wear like rock, ride like rock. Started out ok but became hard to balance and a little noisy. 

They touted those as commercial grade/tougher construction.

The nearly identical tire (ridge grappler) they released right after has been a smashing success. It doesn’t have the same hard construction which was apparently the trade off

I removed the remaining six transmission to block bolts, along with the motor mount fasteners and the remaining wiring harness connections. All that is currently holding the block in place is gravity.

The engine crane is not in my garage and like I always say, if you own a John Deere tractor it is likely broken down. Mine is, again, and in the shop where it has been most of its life, where I can't use it to move a couple hundred pound engine crane so I can use that. But the good news is that I still get to make payments on the thing although it is seldom if ever used!

It’s a short block right? Pre rangers on one side, you on other a 2x4 and a chain. Pick it out of there.... :popcorn:

I agree, couple gallon milk jugs of solid ice in a yeti are the ticket. As long as you have another cooler for drinks.
I took 1gallon jugs put 3/4 cup of table salt in and finished filling up with water,  it freezes at a much lower temp, stays colder longer.   Used them in my Lifetime products cooler all summer long in the back of the truck for fluids for the crew.  Changed them out once a week and it still kept drinks cold. Frozen on day one

What type of mounting system does your roof top ten have? Are you going to be building a rack for the top of the superburban?
Can you build some sort of aerodynamics to the roof/tent/rack?

Fast search on EBay showed lots of captain chairs available for the burb but mostly newer models.   I know the front seats in the older style and up o the 2010 didn’t cross over but the center sections did.   

I have noted over the years the wider tire causes more weight.   I never have had a logical reason to run a 12.50 tire but I do.   I might suggest a more narrow tire for all the street driving this might see in the future.  And than might be worth a change after your long road trip.

Might not look to exciting but the home owner wanted to cover the top of her kitchen cabinets so you couldn’t see the top when she came from her upstairs.  Who ever remodeled deleted her planter boxes that hid them,  we glued up some massive alder tops to cover it all up
