BTW: I usually use my Speedglas helmet & the new mag lens fits perfectly inside with no modifications at all.

I like the leathers and bare legs lol those skinny legs will weld burn and BB's on them aren't fun either lol. Need to try those magnifying lenses at 8 bucks it's worth a try. Would be nice to see where the hell I am welding, instead of doing it by braille

Who wants to go wheelin' in AZ the weekend of Jan 25-27?

It looks like my Dad is flying into Phoenix for a family visit & what better way to welcome him than a trailrun for his 78th birthday?

Lights!
You know, I hear that people with too many lights on their rig only install them because they don't know how to wheel.

Figured out my Firestik Fire Ring was grounding onto my antenna mount. Hit up the mount with some paint, finally resorted to just putting some electrical tape down. No more grounding issues, seemed to have my SWR pretty even under 2.

I do it so I can bug you old farts at night with my night time shenanigans.
