This candle as I've had about enough of the meetings we have to endure where people love the sound of their own voice.

The rarest of North American spec 80s actually (1 of 9 - may be the only one without OEM roof rack or side steps). '97 Collectors Edition in 6M1 Emerald Green Pearl over Oak. Triple locked from the factory, adjustable BP51 suspension, ARB things, winch, Scheel-Mann Seats, ALL the maintenance (dat spreadsheet doe), low miles (for these things at least)... I've been looking for years. But I don't want to turn this into a Toyota thread.

Or do I...
Ugh, the Scheel-Mann seats! Gonna PM you to so as not to further derail this thread.

Did you buy this 80 from jmlockwood? I thought it looked familiar.

I finished building this vintage RC airplane from a pile of balsa just last month.

Every time that I built one of those planes back in the day, it would lawn dart into the ground and revert to a pile of balsa wood and MonoKote.....

The airplane is a vintage design from the late '60's to early '70's. The original kit is no longer available, but a manufacturer in Arkansas reproduces the kit, along with dozens of other vintage RC airplane kits. It took me 6 months to build it.

Does it annoy you that the tire in the back doesn't match what is on the wheels? Nice restoration though!

yes! I found this truck in a backyard, kids were playin with it in sand and dirt. So it misses few items, I got 3d printed parts since Im not the only one doing those restoration.

Luckily, the house owner kept the remote inside. So it runs.

The old 9.6V. Brings back memories! Back in the "old days", like, 1985, we didnt have proper chargers. Or at least not ones my family could afford. Charging was done by a pair of alligator clips to the car battery on Dad's Ford LTD station wagon. I knew nothing of voltage at the time and didnt know the positive charging cable was a resistor wire that cut the voltage from 12 volts to 9.6, so the length was crucial. I cut it down for some reason I cant remember and ended up sending more than 9.6 volts to the battery pack. Came back 15 minutes later to check on my charge and found a melted battery pack on the front fender of dad's car. He was none too happy!

haha thanks dude! i probably should lol the wife and i was talking and i was telling her how much money we saved in labor if i was to hire a contractor. crazy to figure out the #'s and realize a lot of these projects a contractor would charge you almost 10x more in labor than the actual materials

Surprised you didnt put storage under there. I guess you do have storage already to the right though. But still, more storage is always good. I tend to overcomplicate projects...I'll see my way out now...

Oh, nice work as always and I second the idea that you need your own home improvement show!

thanks dude! i thought about putting storage drawers but we already have 4 cabinets and drawers to the right along with a sink and counter. so it seemed easier to just to design a simple design.

i probably should do a home improvement show but that would just take a lot of time

does your local plumbing code require a drainage height for the washing machine ? ''overflow level''. At least the canidian one wont allow to raise the machine with a fixed structure without moving up the drainage.

Generally speaking the drain (box) for the washing machine needs to be 30" above floor height...

Now, if you've raised the machine on a plinth of say 12", the drain box needs to either have already been at 42" H, or will need to be raised, accordingly.

If not, you risk siphoning occurring as the machine cycles.

This sounds something like my irrigation system. When I had it rebuilt a few years ago, we had to move all of the valves way the heck up the hill and near the edge of my lot because of code. All of the valves are anti-siphon, but what the heck.
