I have been having some ongoing fuel supply issues with the Honda. The original fuel lines don’t hold up to ethanol too well, but the newer style fuel lines are a bit too stiff for the extreme angles that my petcock requires (that’s what she said). Also, I made a chemistry mistake and wasn’t able to clean up all the…
This pup was a sprite three year-old.
Caught this bad cat doing 1,842 knots across the ground.
Toyota had a whole Supra exhibit set up. Even had a militarized Scottsdale police officer standing in front of a veiled new Supra (thanks Mexico!). There were lots of fancy old Land Cruisers up for auction and all of them were being inspected by pencil necked wanabe outdoorsmen. Pretty surprised there wasn’t an…
Hit up the BJ auction for the first time in about five years. My nephew had a great time greeting every single one of the 1,700 “Cars” characters he came upon. Probably the most Powerwagons I’ve ever seen here.
Finally finished up my butcher block countertop. I really like how it turned out. This was my first time working with wood. Mistakes were made, mistaked were corrected, and much was learned.
Which I fucked up a bit, but have managed to salvage. Amateur tip: go light on the wood glue. I’m in the process of making my own butcher block countertop, which I will actually use as a cutting board. Still needs a lot of sanding, but it’s getting there. I have never worked with wood before, or ever taken a shop…
Rewrapped my exhaust and coated it with some header paint.
I absolutely hate reading “year in review” articles. However, being the (allegedly) drunk asshole I am, here is mine. Fuck you.
Stay safe tonight, Oppos, and may your new years be filled with many pupusas*.
By Sonoran Desert standards. It’s a pot pie kind of night.

I started repainting the tank on the Honda a few weeks ago. Finally got everything back together today. I was trying to match the reddish-orange color used on the old school race bikes. It’s a bit too orange, but I like it. I wanted to do something different, so I used a small brush to apply the paint, then cleared…
Into my belly.
Picked up a used set of Dan Post burgundy boots for cheaps to wear with my suit for a friend’s wedding. The finish was in a bit of rough shape, but a quick polish cleaned them up nicely. Went well with my navy suit. Supper was brisket, beans and potato salad, so footware/food synergy was in full effect. I shamelessly…
I experimented with some brush on acrylic paints, trying to find a red that was similar to Honda’s old school red. Turned out a bit too orange, but I think it looks rad. Still have to clean it up and clear coat it.
I’m raising this kitten to be a camping cat. First trip was a success.
Did my best to stay the hell away from a mall today. Spent the last two days in my happy place with the coyotes, scorpions and snakes.
