So I wanted to do some gauge pods, and I’m not a huge fan of the A pillar pod look. Nor was I looking for pods to replace my dash vents or pods on the dashboard itself. In stumbling around on the nets I found some pics of people who did some integrated with their gauge bezel. That seemed like a great solution to me so I figured I would have at it.
So the old alternator was giving up the ghost. Flickering battery light when coming to a stop and a horrendous noise that sounded of a chorus comprised of a thousand strangled hamsters.
So I’m putting an ANL fuse holder and a fused power block in the car and I needed a good way to mount them on the firewall. To accomplish this I got a rivnut/pop nut tool kit. I’ve used pop rivets before but not pop threaded inserts so this is a bit of a tool review here.
It's been a bit since I've made an update. Largely because I've been working with dirty metal and stopping to take pics with the ipad tends to get it all sorts of dirty. So I need to figure out a way to keep the ipad clean but still get decent pics.
I'm gonna order a case and a screen protector and hope for the best. I have built a welding cart, a garden table and will be doing a coffee table for a friend soon. So I'll try to get some pics of that.
All right, getting my welder hooked up. Jumping right in to my first little project. Exhaust.
The continuation of the suspension work. This time sorting out the front.
Finally done with it, so let’s just get right in to the write up while I still have the energy.
On with the show.
The bushing in my rear trailing arm was shot so I decided to put in these from energy suspension. It is fortunately not an overly complicated task to get this Japanese sex toy looking thing into the rear trailing arm, though it is a bit of a drawn out process.
