Darn...! Getting worried.....

One glas of redwine, wife "passed out" on the sofa, and myself all dizzy... Is that a bad sign?

Or just a sign of being a family and very occasional alcoholic intake or what...?

All I can say is, it is a cheap buzz....

Somewhere on our tree is a Bug ornament that appears to be about that same size, I think it's brass, I don't know if it was meant to be a key ring or an ornament, I have no idea where my wife found it
I'll hafta look for it before my wife puts it all away

Default Re: Who has a buzz going on?

was going to post an epic tale last night (aka REALLY LONG POST) but only typed up one segment.. got distracted by Star Trek and sleep.. :P)

7:15 PM 1/10/2014
Instead of spamming this thread, i decided to type it into notepad and copy and paste before I went to bed..

just opened can #3 of PBR.. been procrastinating on doing laundry, so doing that tonight. it's in the dryer now so i know i'll be awake and drinking for at least another hour.. Thought about working on the bug, but since I am three beers in, I decided it's not a wise decision to figure out where on the firewall I want to mount my oil breather box and MSD box and drill the holes/install the nutserts for that...

Only other hang up I have on the bug is a small aluminum piece that transitions from the throttle tube in the tunnel to the cable shield thing that comes with the Sync Link system.. came up with an idea about it and posted it on the Samba, and I think Pete may have misinterpreted my frustration at my own lack of foresight as my frustration at HIS lack of foresight, so he's sending me a new piece that will include my idea in it. I'm curious to know if he alters future kits to use my idea..

since I'm rambling, I may as well fill you all in.. There is a rubber grommet that goes around the clutch and throttle tubes where they exit the tunnel above the transaxle. In the iteration of his system I have, that rubber grommet holds a transition piece in place, but my car was apparently not built to accomodate that grommet, so after a trial and error, I came up with the idea of machining a hole in the side of the transition piece and installing a set screw to hold it in place.. instead of me taking my piece to a shop to have that done (I don't own a drill press and don't trust myself to not fuck it up in the vice) he's going to mail me a piece with that done..

It's funny, moving to Riverside in December 2010, my goal was to have the bug running by Summer of 2011.. then it was by the end of the year, then by Summer 2012, then I didn't set a goal, then again by Summer 2013, then October 2013, then January 2014.. Now my goal is ASAFP... :/

But this time I might just do it! just gotta mount the MSD box and wire it up, mount my oil breather box, get the carbs back on the engine and install it (carbs have to go on during installation, even with the apron removed, it's about an inch too wide..) and then try and tune it and get it running.. at some point I have to figure out reinstalling the apron so the decklid will stay shut, but until then,I've got some thick safety wire to wrap around the latch and the exhaust ;)

anyway, gonna begin season 3 of Star Trek: The Next Generation.. add more in a bit :P

Default Re: Who has a buzz going on?

me again :P

So I'm planning on getting some work done tomorrow night after work with a friend.. Namely, I need to figure out where on the firewall I'm going to mount my MSD box and oil breather box, then drill the appropriate holes and install nutserts for the extra "clean, professional" look :P

Well, I had bought a harbor freight nutsert installation set a few months back for this, but never actually looked at the threading I need.. The rubber dampeners for the MSD box are threaded #10-32... kit came with #10-24 The bolts that held my oil breather are standard bolts threaded M6-1.0.. this kit is all standard..

I'm gonna try and track down some #10-32 stuff tomorrow after work, and I think I'm gonna replace the bolts for the oil breather with some allen wrench style bolts in a threading that I have nutserts for.. the 10mm bolts it has now are a pain in the ass to get to anyway, would be much easier to fit an allen socket in the tight space than a full on 10mm socket..

also, tonight's dinner included one can of PBR, and a 22oz bottle of "Gentlemen's Club Old Fashioned Style Ale." it is "90% ale brewed with cherries, lemons & oranges and aged in rye whiskey barrels and 10% ale." 10.5ALC and actually pretty tasty.. the best description I could come up with when Genia asked me about it was, "Well, it's kinda thick and sugary, but, i guess, imagine if cherry flavored cough syrup actually tasted good.." :P

well, been a shitty last few months at work.. we have 3 production people and 8 management people in my department right now, and the head boss expects us to produce as much as a fully manned shop (around 25 production and 6 managers..) so we've been getting shit for not doing enough every day and even when we succeed we didn't do enough..


today I got out of work early, and came home and had two pbr's and now am most of the way done with a glass of jack and a splash of coke and i'm feeling pretty good :)

tomorrow, I'll pull my old exhaust off the bug for a garage sale we're having, my new exhaust should arrive within 4-6 weeks..

and yea, now i'm just rambling, maybe i'll ramble more if i get a chance in a bit..

I don't drink, but can relate... I've been putting in 70hr weeks (salary) and finally get down to a regular 40hr week and then find out another biz said something I was in charge off caused major damage and wants comp'd for it. There was NO damage, they are just looking to get something for free. Makes me long for the days when I wasn't in charge of anything...

Halloween? fucking halloween?!?

that's the last time we remembered to post here?!? holy shit guys, we're losing it...

been a long week, got an app on my iphone that tracks the number of steps I take a day, it's reasonably accurate.. so far I've been averaging about 6 miles a day wince last thursday.. we moved aboard the ship on monday, so it's been nothing but walking all over the god damned carrier, up and down ladderwells, dodging shipyard workers, and all sorts of shit..

I'm in charge of damage control equipment for my department, so this week I carried a total of 8 38lb AFFF extinguishers and 5 45lb CO2 Extinguishers (not all at once, one at a time..) down two ladderwells and across the hangar bay to inspect them, and then back to put them away.. been an exhausting week...

so now, I've got a kid with a fever and body aches asleep on the living room couch, and a wife who slipped in the kitchen and smashed her knee into the ground when she fell, asleep in bed, and I'm on beer 4 and wide awake... might go out in the garage for a bit so I can keep drinking without waking anyone up.. :P

edit: carrying those extinguishers ain't the only thing that's exhausted me by the way.. i did all that shit on monday and tuesday, but i'm also responsible for my departments supply orders, and all of our workcenters, been a LOT of running around trying ot get answers to questions that should have been thought of 6 months ago..

Okay I admit I have been slacking off here...... I promise to step it up.

The biggest problem I have when drinking and being on a computer is that I buy SHIT! I recently acquired a 2000 Corvette Convertible, and just spent $1K on exhaust and a cold air intake. I also just spent another $500 on exhaust for the Harley........


So....... If you see me posting on this thread, talk me into taking a few more shots so I can pass out before I buy more SHIT!


.... as a side note; that promotion I was talking about in the October post........ I got it but with all the damn hours I am working it turned into a cut in pay!


.......... I think I need a drink.................

Mmmmm Tequila, I can taste it right now just thinking about it, I just don't think my stomach could take it, that's why I gave it up, but I did get a lot done back then, 2 shots as soon as I woke up & I was ready for anything, I just don't wanna go thru all the med changes that go with adding that to my list of meds
It sure does sound good I'D get my happy feet back
