    Black Gold 380R's 65 Mustang Build Thread

    I'm sure you've already thought of it, but I'd definitely test on a scrape piece of aluminum how any clear interacts with the sharpie before dropping it on the real piece! That's awesome they rolled out the red carpet for you.

    Best part is, prices are moving up without oil making a big move. Diesel at this point is higher than it was in March @ 6.26 in town. Prices here are as high as they were when oil was roughly $20 more per barrel. If oil spikes again prepare for significant pain.

    Portable Battery Charger/Jump-Box

    Because my wife has a history of sitting in her car running the battery, I bought one of these in to keep in it after having to drive to jump her a couple of times. Bought this one based in part from the PF video linked above.

    Is the Army switching weapons and caliber?

    Yea, when I was reading about it, they talk about mach 10 but then during reentry most of that velocity is lost. I forget what the after reentry velocity is but it still sounded extremely damaging

    Is the Army switching weapons and caliber?

    Basically what it sounds like, a telephone pole shape and sized hunk of tungsten dropped from a satellite in I believe a low earth orbit.

    Rivian's slow death has commenced

    The better question is how much is that special assessment from the power company when every house on the block adds a 240v40amp circuit to charge these things. Hell what if they add 2 and the service for the communities can't handle the new load.

    I mentioned this in another thread, but some of the articles hint that there might only be like 2300 stations equipped to sell E15 over E10. If true, this is a huge nothing burger.

    What Fun Things do you have in your Office?

    Nah, I was talking about the Lego Ford GT and Bronco on the right of Nick's desk. Fun things in my work office is probably cobwebs and whatever else that has taken over in the 2 years that I haven't had to go there.
