Re: Cantbe canby 2018

At 65? you can just roll it into a IRA. Plus who doesnt need medical when they are older? Its a savings account on steroids. Yes it can only be used on medical pre turning 65?, but its also all pre tax money, and lowers how much you get taxed for.

Re: Cantbe canby 2018

Mine is 15% off, came out to 3700. But that is what I have an HSA for. It's sitting at a little over 9k. But I didn't care about price. I went for the best place I could find in the area.

Re: Cantbe canby 2018

Of course, my car wont be there. But Hopefully I can help Eddie (Rotary 510) get one of his wagons on the road. I have Lasik (PRK really) on the 5th and cant drive until the 8th.

Re: Jacob's goon build

Thanks guys. I was really trying to get more done this weekend, but other projects (like roommates motorcycle). Pulled the TC pocket on the drivers side, the one I attached as a replacement. Um, plug welds, they were not going to come undone, they were horrendous to grind out. At least it makes me m...

Re: Jacob's other projects

It's that time again. Front brakes at 79,960. Don't let friends buy pre 2012 journeys. I'm trying to remember if this is the second or third front brake job.

Re: Jacob's goon build

I did in fact get to make the other piece before work, but ran out of time to update earlier. When I got home I decided to cycle the suspension the full range with the steering locked. Made a jig to show the laser on the wall. Im happy. More cardboard to metal magic: https://qgxl1a.bl.files.1drv.com...

Re: Jacob's goon build

After the BMW fix I had mothers day stuff to do. Then more drinks (its still the weekend...). Got home and decided I really needed to do something on the 510. I had already tacked the TC pocket onto the frame where I thought it should go (that laser level sure is handy). So then I needed to make the...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

Exhaust flange gasket has been leaking for awhile. Stock manifolds had m10 studs. Headers had m8 holes. So I drilled out 3 of the four holes when I installed, didn't catch this problem til the headers were on the car, couldn't reach one of the holes with a standard drill. Well threw m10 bolts in wit...

Re: Jacob's goon build

So awhile back I got discouraged at the price of T-bolt clamps. They are stupid expensive, and then if you want full stainless ones, that will be even more money. And they you have to multiply that by the number of clamps you need. So there has to be an alternative. I reinforced my idea from this Ar...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Kinda cool seeing it come together. Must be kinda nice to leave for work for a few days and come back to see something done. Maybe it's not as fast as you want, but it will happen.

Re: Jacob's goon build

Should have gone to bed sooner, but new toys meant I had to do something. Got the Lower radiator pipe all lined up. Just gonna prep it for welding and have the welder at work do it. Then once its back, I will have to get a port welded to this... https://xcnqvw.dm.files.1drv.com/y4mxxMe4W5nEooRj2LeF5...

Re: Jacob's goon build

No real update... (as in no pics). First of all, that aluminum thing you see in the background of a few of my pics (like the 2 above), is amazing. Its a quick platform. 20" tall, 18" wide, 36" long. It folds. Its sturdy. It also makes for a awesome welding table. I can just put my gro...
