i tried to pull a s10 blazer out that got stuck right in front of me. no go, not enough HP......
my mpg was still about 35mpg
used no oil, used no coolant
vibration in the steering wheel on I-80 back home, from mud in the wagon wheels, priceless.

Dont get me wrong man they were good pictures and it looks like you guys had fun. But they were streamin through so fast i couldnt keep up. Best bet is to just pause it and drag the curser throuth the pictures 1 at a time.

hopefully some more people with cams that day will be posting. there were probably about 30 entries of vehicles by guess. I think besides Subiemech85, there were maybe 4 or 5 others with cameras.

OK,. i have April 10 off,:banana: but can I still get my GLHB ready in time?:confused:The Brat is gonna take a longer time. unless it get submitted to Overhauling, but then they might just laugh at it and say no way were touching it.
That gives me 6 whole days to fix the brakes(replace the corroded lines) and patch up some holes,
or else i'll be taking on water like the titanic :eek:.
I could rivet metal in and cover it with bedliner :eek:, but that would only delay the :horse: inevitable.
Or I can stay home and just baby my subie.:popcorn:
Anyone know where I can find a decent welder for a decent price?
I grew up with acetylene cutting torches and making precise welds.
I dont know much about migs/tigs, but i hear they are more precise.. .
Using arcs, I typically used a whole stick on 6-8 inches of a weld.
It may be overkill, but the weld held :)...

icon overkilll...
