anyone who has ever turned a wrench...

Recommended Posts

anyone who has ever turned a wrench in their day will appreciate what I have been doing.. It started out as a 2001 volvo bobtail + sleepeer, we cut the frame right in half and strectched it 10ft and will add another 10ft after the axles soon.. the sleeper room was stretched another 8ft to allow for all of the electronics. It will be a giant audio and video truck for (tobishia?toshiba?), and if all goes as planned it will be featrued in the next superbowl halftime show.. It will have a giant plasma screen that will be about 20 x 15', and will be lined with subwoofers all on the one side. some of the pics are kinda hard to make out cause it was kinda dark in the shop.... if anyone knows how to brighten them up a little that would kick a$$..

after resizing the pics to make them fit into the up-loader they look even darker... :)... but anyways this has to be the coolest thing I have ever been a part of.. its kinda like monster garage.. :) this was a perfectly good diesel and I got the opportunity to start chopping the hell out of it.. the funnest part was gutting the interior from the front of the sleeper back, and cutting the back wall out with a sawzall.. every thing that you see done in the pics was completed in five eight-hour shifts by three guys including myself.. in pic #1 and 2 you can see that the back end of the front half of the truck is sitting on jack stands and in pick #3 you can see the tandem axles stayed level and just rolled away after we blew commpressed air into the parking brake line..

OK well work has officially stoped on this project... the middle man who hired us to do this is not paying, and is supposed to be running behind us setting up accounts for all of the materials and such but has so far failed.. :) although I will keep any news posted.

So how much in the hole are you on this project if he dosn't pay?

I hate it when people back out...Spineless dicks they are.

Can I have it if you don't want it? :)

I used ThumbsPlus Pro 7 It does everything I want. http://www.cerious.com/ Small family software company... I like to support the little guys that have good products! It's been around for at least 8 years.

I really didn't need the Pro version for how I use it. I don't think it does the trick mixing photos like putting your head on Godzilla's body, but then I've never looked for that feature in it.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
