Re: What did you do to your panther today?

Touched up some stone chips, and a couple dime sized peeling paint blisters (ain't just white that flakes off). WTF is up with the price of touchup paint? Holy hell that shit got expensive.

Re: What did you do to your computer recently?

Installed a SSD in my desktop. Samsung EVO 860. The samsung migration tool works quick, had my harddrive copied over in about a half hour, last time I cloned my drive with acronis it was almost 4 hours of churning away [same computer]. I almost miss the harddrive noise, and things load about as fast...

Re: Whatcha doing?

Put an SSD in my desktop today. Painless & quick migration process. Turned over everything looking for an old drive caddy to mount the ssd, no luck, I chucked all those floppy mounts amd drive spacers years ago (cause, who's going to use that ever again?). Did find an old cdrom and gutted it and dri...

Re: Ford Big Block V-8 returns...

Classic big block when it comes to hp & torque, power down low to move heavy shit, not rip through the 1/4 as fast as possible. Anyone come across the weight of this 7.3?

Re: Why a Diesel?

What's the Diesel's attraction? The rattly engine clatter? Nothing more than to say they have a diesel. And some stupid eco-friendly type b.s. that is raging across north america (ie: the sudden surge in anti-plastic everything movement) The "manliness" factor I'm sure is part of it. What does the ...

Okay, so I don't have a barbecue planned... instead, we're having our Golden Wedding Anniversary celebration tomorrow evening... indoors at a restaurant party room, of course.
Congrats!

Re: Whatcha doing?

Why do they have such a hard time believing that I go to the baseball games by myself? The americans once felt that me driving 6.5 hours one way, and only making a day trip was ludicrous. I tell 'em I drive all day at work (them: what are you a trucker or something?) and thats why I am at the borde...

Re: Big Brake upgrade time....

Drilled holes = less heat absorbing steel. I'd go with plain old regular rotors.
Never used power stop, can't answer that. I've been lucky enough to get the known brands show up in the closeout sales when I've needed to do brakes.

Re: What did you do to your panther today?

Funny, just get to talking about the new Ranger here and I see my first one in the wild today at a small town Ford dealer. Definitely don't like the lines of the front end (looks worse in person).
