Re: Engine cover sound and heat reduction

I have not realized any issues regarding heat from the engine and when still/stopped not bad regarding sound. My experience was the overall sound comes from rolling and vibration of the flat body panels. Though, during the rebuild, the interior was Linex'ed including the removable engine covering. I...

Re: 'Tis the season...

In the front black PVC tubes are an Ed Fong antenna and misc HAM stuff that attach to the mast. It is a great mast from the...

Re: 710k on craigslist

Ah... California Pinzgauers... First, CARB added a$3500 fee to "new" old vehicles when arriving into our fine state. But yes, the price is a premium price. Then, in theory, CA pinzgauers need to be 1974 or older to be legit. So, if there is title/registration, awesome. The real question is, how many...

Car Top Shower - Off the shelf

Saw this on costco.com. For $120, I am not sure you could make it for less.

Re: Here we go again

Not wanting to hijack a thread... but for parasitic voltage drains and general battery maintenance I use the pulsetech solargizer. Works well and has a small 6" x 6" inch solar panel footprint. It does both a trickle charge and de-sulfates the battery plates. Here is my write up and install back in ...

Re: Security Alert On This Forum

I believe it is a semi false positive. A common tracking pixel called s.thebrighttag.com is in the site pages. That tag is owned by Signal. A real affiliate tracking marketing company. BUT now there is a malware in the wild of the same name made by the bad guys... not Signal. So, there is more than ...

Re: Carlsbad Auxxcom in "action"

Short answer: Connect to the Carlsbad EOC via 2m using the Palomar Mountain repeater at the top and bottom of the hour to echo any messages from the Shelter Director to EOC and viceversa. Long answer: The city of Carlsbad has its own EOC and trains all city employees on emergency and shelter managem...

It is common that the port side square panel "fails". The actual part that fails is the metal extension (that is on the side closest to the door opening that inserts down into the body) "unwields". While it does not fall out, this makes it wobbley.
