If you’re not practicing, you’re a target already…
The nice lady from UPS brought more parts-
Some relays and relay sockets, fuse holders, and open barrel terminals to connect it together. The parts are arriving, but I’m short a little green wire, some WeatherPack 3 connector housings, and a dual power post terminal connector.
Don’t despair- just fix it:
I bought a scrap of material used to make magnetic signs, and whittled it into a reasonable resemblance of the cowl vent’s opening. Even taking a short time to chat with the landlord, it was finished in less than a half hour. Cutting the curved part was the hardest part, and was easy- I held a pencil in my hand, running my finger next to the curve, and plotting the shape onto the magnet. Cut it out, made a couple minor adjustments, and it’s done. I carefully cut the front (hood) by using the gap between the hood and as a guide- if you’re squeamish, you could tape the cowl side so as not to scratch it. I was very careful, and removed the magnet to cut just a little more off the front side.
This idea has been rattling around in my head for several years, so we’ll see if it works. I’m confident that it’ll keep leaves out of the cowl vent/ heater/ cab, though.
And brought some goodies:
You’re looking at a couple bundles of 12ga TXL wire, headlight sockets (the orange things) and a couple rolls of looming tape- it lacks adhesive, and won’t make the wiring loom sticky if it ever needs to come back apart.
I’m waiting on the relays, fuse holders, terminals, etc. from another company.
When I get closer to finishing the project I’ll do a post on where to buy all this stuff.
I’ve placed the order for my headlight relay project- had to purchase from three suppliers to get everything, but it’s on the way.
I also ordered a Cole Hersee 1254 trailer plug and enough 14/4 SO wire to rewire my small pickup trailer. I wired it up several years ago the day before a vacation and used the cheap four strand stuff from Auto Zone, and it’s time t do it right. I’ll likely do a little writeup on that as well. I might put both projects on Youtube as well. When the time comes, I’ll provide links to my channel.
As I’ve alluded to in the past, I’m trying to keep Torah (the old testament law), and in my attempt to not touch anything made of pork I’ll be reviewing a couple kinds of bar soap that don’t contain Oleic acid/ pork fat. If you don’t want to hear about religion, you don’t need to worry, these posts will be about soap, not faith.
A society of shrieking single mothers and wayward, dissolute men is not a society at all. If a nation cannot do the basic job of reproducing itself while in the presence of a highly fertile and fiercely patriarchal alien culture then it doesn’t deserve to exist, and in time it won’t. If a nation does not produce the men who are willing and able to take ownership of their nation then it will find itself unable to stand against the march of men who will.
The rest is here. Read it all.
