I figure it's important that I have a gameplan for all the important lessons I need to pass on to my boys so here is where I will post it for posterity. If you have any suggestions for things I may have forgotten, please comment. Things to teach my boys:... Continue reading

So I finally got a chance to get back out to the shop & do some more work on my truck last night. I've spent the last few nights helping a friend with a Subaru head gasket job but last night I got a solid 6 hours to work on... Continue reading

I got a chance to spend some time out at the shop today & I made some good progress towards getting "Petunia" on the road again. The truck is now named Petunia because my wife kept saying patina wrong when describing the paint job. Today I was able to get... Continue reading

If you follow me on Facebook then you know that I haven't been doing any Project "RRST" updates because I managed to break the screen on my phone last week. That meant that I couldn't take any pics or post the pics I had already taken. Now that my phone... Continue reading

Today was a really productive day at the shop. I got the transmission crossmember & mount installed which was surprisingly simple to do. I did have to take a few measurements to make sure I got the transmission "centered" between the frame rails but after less than an hour the... Continue reading

I spent some time up at the shop today & while it was another day where I didn't accomplish a whole lot, I did manage to make another big step towards completion. About the only thing I really accomplished today was getting my front clip primed & painted. That gets... Continue reading

Today I was able to spend some time working on my F-100 project & while I didn't get nearly as much accomplished as I had hoped, I did overcome another major obstacle. Originally, I didn't think rotating the upper intake 180 degress was going to be that big an issue... Continue reading

Progress on my 1969 F-100 got off to a feverish start due to the fact that I was on vacation last week but obviously life has forced me to go back to work so things have slowed down a little bit. That's not to say that I've stopped making progress... Continue reading

The last 2 days of work on my F-100 have not been the most efficient and/or productive days of work but I have managed to make some progress towards the end goal of getting the “Rat Rod Shop Truck” back on the road. Day 3 started out with only one... Continue reading

Day 2’s goals for my F-100 consisted of quite a few things but the biggest part of what I wanted to accomplish today consisted of putting some fresh paint on the engine bay & some of the other components under the hood. When I got to the shop this morning,... Continue reading

Project "Rat Rod Shop Truck" day 1 was a success. I got the front clip off, pulled the motor, cleaned the enginebay & prepped it for paint. I ran into a few issues but all in all it went fairly well. Since this is my first F-100, I never removed... Continue reading

My 1st truck ever was a 1989 F-150 that I bought 2 years after I graduated high school & I loved that truck. It was a V8 w/a standard transmission & it served me well for 2 years before I sold it to move to upstate New York for a... Continue reading

It's been awhile since I posted a BMX video but that's mostly because it's been awhile since I saw one that impressed me. This video from the Carhartt BMX team definitely falls under the impressive category. There are more unique style tricks in this video than there are in most... Continue reading

Now you know this has to be a great video (moving & powerful) if it's going to inspire me to post something on this blog after nearly 5 months without updating at all. The title pretty much explains it all but for a little more clarity; the speech is from... Continue reading

A few weeks ago my wife made the comment to me that my brownish "gold" 1994 Volvo 940 Turbo was a crappy car & wouldn't look very good for me in the parking lot of my new job. Prior to that statement, I had no intention of buying a "newsed"... Continue reading

I had planned on going to this but a job interview for a dream job kept me from making it. Odyssey obviously knows what's good for BMX. After watching this video, I wished I had figured out a way to go anyways. It looks like a great time was had... Continue reading

I didn't get to watch the entire Indy 500 this past weekend but what I did notice while watching the aerial shots was this giant roll-in & massive orange jump at one end of the in-field. Well, thanks to StumbleUpon this morning, I learned what that ramp was all about.... Continue reading
