I am contemplating having some aluminum bar ends for my mountain bike powder coated professionally (I don't want to use my oven) since the paint has worn off from sun & use. Can anyone recommend a local place that does a good job? I will probably just get impatient and rattle can the things, but I figured it cant hurt to ask..

Hey B0nez, I appreciate the offer but I need to have the tub to the shop by 3 today. I'm takjng the tub to Snail Motorsports for blasting but they also do powder coating. I've been using them for a couple years now and they have consistently done great work. They are located at the NE corner of N. Lv airport. I've used the Shine Shop for powder, ceramic and chrome before and they do good work too. They are on Sunset east of the 95.

Sparky-I REALLY like that willys wagon! We need to see more of it! Good job on a sexy rig!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Well I figured that you (and the others) had nothing better to do on a friday afternoon than lurk on the forum so I figured you and would see my post. :-) If you don't have any plans tomorrow I need some help drinking some Sam Adams Oktoberfest beer. I'm just kicking it in the garage doing the final welds on the new CJ frame.

Oh wait.... I should call you.

So, finally a photo of the truck I was trying to sell my yota to pickup. Might not look like much in the picture but trust me, it would likely have been the fastest dirt toy you've ever been in and arguably would've been the 3rd fastest dirt toy I'd ever been in, and it would've been mine had my truck sold. Oh well though, wasn't meant to be...



It's not too late, I could still pick it up but I've given up on selling mine.


Couple more random pics from the weekend. They're jeeps so you guys can relate.



okay, not a jeep...



a jeep, best part is it took him a few tries to crawl up that, it's STEEP and pretty stepped. Mine just walked up it like nothing.



Going down



my turn



Follow the leader...





Front tires are hanging in the air, had to pull her off. She'll probably be lifted next time I wheel with her though.
