Was on a couple of the older forums.

Projects have mostly been on hold.

I still have my Aussie powered (once finished) 1962 Fairlane.

Finishing up a 1982 Toyota pickup with a 4.3 L swap, dual transfer cases, 5.29 gears, elockers, etc.

Sold off my 2007 Charger R/T

Daily driving my 2003 short bed Silverado (5.3/4L60.....looking to gear swap it to 4.10's)

Sold off my VTX1800

Stalled on my poked/stroked CB550 build (need a good machinist!)

Studying for the PE now for the April exam.

 

My other forums died and I like to post and reads builds...I will get mine going on here when I can find the time.

@66sprint6 is going to love that Aussie motor setup. :yes:

You really do work in the Nuke plant! :stare:

I talked to a retired Nuke worker a couple years back. He said nuke employees can only have 5,000 millirem in a year, I think it was. So basically, you can rack that up quickly and be off for months? Sounds right?

I bet the nuclear stuff is boring to you, but it still fascinates me.

It is still exciting but this DOE work is slow.

Based off the old ford 200.  Has a canted valve alloy head and was used up to the 90s.

I haven't committed yet (I have 2 more weeks)

 

I was leaning towards Materials and Machine design but after starting my studying I am leaning towards the fluids section.  I had previously picked up the HVAC books and now I have the materials ones but my GF has the Fluids books from when she took it so I might lean that way now.

 

Maybe we could work a trade for some services mike...

Tell me more about the CB550.

I've always wanted to rebuild an old Japanese bike like that. This CB you have has a nice classic look to it as well.
