What's with the detailing, you were supposed to do mine first and touch up all the paint

I think I need to pull everything and do a more thorough job of painting my parts. I use to, and I've slacked lately, especially when trying to put it together before Moab. Essentially I just put enough paint on it to not completely rust out before I get time to re-do it all

Then you went and painted it brown... I don't stock that color.

That's funny, I thought it looked quite detailed. That goes to show that we are all our worst critics. I know every flaw on my jeep, whether it be just cosmetic or not the best fab.... but everyone thinks is pretty legit. To ME... lot's of projects even when it's up and going.

True Value... Ace... same **** aint it?

Honestly I was surprised how clean everyone's rig was in Moab. Definitely a gathering of like minded folks.

To hard to keep black clean... paint it white during your stretch. Seriously though while stretching I'm sure you'll also find the time to detail it out.

Thanks! You're right, we are all our own worst critics. There is a lot that I need/want to go back and clean up on mine that might not bother some. I want it looking fully finished and not thrown together to get it running. I know to some it didn't look it (maybe it did ) but I skipped a lot of what I think will be cool, final details that really finish it off cosmetically and make it look "finished". I really just tried to get functionality and even that needs a little cleaning up.

Yeah I am guilty of rushing things through and having to redo them as well. Did we mention how amazingly clean Nates jeep looks! Seriously wish you could help me clean up mine. I am second in line after Art!

Thanks Jermey, your rig is no slouch in the cleanliness department, just like it's no slouch in the capability department! I do remember you looking at my front end and saying something like "Do you ever use it?"... haha. Proud moment for my OCD.

My buddy who own's an exhaust and off road shop bought a Torchmate 4x4 Plasma table a few months ago, and just simply due to his workload has had little time to play with it. Well.... I decided to help him out and train myself how to use it. I took about 4 hours worth of online training over the last couple days and finally went and played around with it today. Using the CAD software is right up my alley.... I really enjoy working with excel and the like, so this CAD stuff comes pretty natural. It is tedious to do certain things, and I'm sure as you get better you find quicker ways to accomplish the same things. At any rate... I'm excited to be learning on it and glad he's willing to let me. If we get something into production that hit's... it might even turn into some income. We'll see.

He was also having a binding problem at the extremities of torch travel that I was able to fix. The gantry comes pre-assembled from Torchmate and they did not tighten down the inside roller bearings..... needless to say I now know quite a bit about the assembly and disassembly of the machine.



I made a pretty cool sign today with this shop's name in it... I forgot to take a photo but I plan to post up some things that I cut just for fun. If anyone needs something cut out... I'm looking for some simple projects to help me learn. Just pay for the material and shipping.
