When my AC went out last summer I bought this lil small ass window unit to throw in the master bedroom for the wife (and cats). After a while I figured I'd just throw it in the garage. It helps, but doesn't effectively really do much other than suck the humidity out of the garage and lower it a couple of degrees. The plans for this are to slap it on the Catio when we build it (enclosing a 16X10' patio area).

Oh I just realized that I didn't update this.
Monday I took the whole axle torsion assembly to my local go to shop down the road. Drop it off at 8am and say I need one removed, and both pressed in. They call at lunch and say they can't get it in their machine.
This is a pretty well equipped shop, so if they can't do it then I'm starting to get worried about the money pit I just dove into.

Take it to a local trailer and truck accessory shop by my work since I figure they press in bearings and all sorts of axle shit for big trucks. No bueno. They say the dealer should be able to handle that, or Lafayette Spring should be able to (another local shop that does big rig 18 wheeler suspensions and shit).

Take it to the spring shop, no go. They can't do anything that small.

Take it to the fucking dealer. Fucking Kia. Girl at the service counter is all "SURE! WE CAN GET THAT IN FOR YOU! It'S A KiA ParT? Wait, Wat is tHaT?"
Yeah, What is that. When she asked it told me that they don't get people coming in asking for this shit. I ask for her to get a tech to talk to. She comes back with the tech, immediately his face cringes and I say
"The look on your face tells me everything I need to know"
"Torsion Axle bushing?"
"yup"
"mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. I hate to say it but we usually just replace the whole damn thing when those go out"
"That's what the internet tells me."

So I'm pissed at that point because this whole rear is $670 from the dealer, but I can get it for about $500-550 online elsewhere. I message the shop that did the tune on my Z06 and ask if he can help. Tells me to bring it by after work. I go by, he looks at it, we fucking handstand the motherfucker up in the air to get our angle right and then he gets it in with his 20ton hydraulic press. No idea why no other shop is capable of getting 2 burly ass men to just hold it up while another hits a button and keeps it lined up. You're all failures in my book. The airboat shop gave zero fucks and got it in easy.
I forgot to mention that the ID of the arm is Ø2.750, and the OD of the bushing was Ø2.770. Fucking .020 thou over. That's a hell of an interference fit. But that press got it installed in under 10 seconds. Tipped my buddy $20 and worked from about 7-11pm at night to get it installed. Still need to bleed the brakes more but it's done.

fuuuuuuuu

:fshitup:

I feel for you man. Throw whole beam away is not acceptable for bushing replacement....

I almost got the Harbor Freight press a while back but my friend's dad has one, and I realized that I'd have to have a good place to put it. My garage is slowly getting crammed in with engine parts for this Miata 1.8 rebuild, so I didn't want to add clutter. But I think I'll eventually get one when I build my shop space because it'll be one of those invaluable things to have. Even if it's just a Hazard Fraught one. It's a bottle jack with a stand, so I'm not gonna pay out the ass for one. The one the shop had was powered by air and man, that bitch worked like a charm. It's one of those things where you're like "Man this thing is so handy, but I'd only use it once a year".
So down the road I'll get one, along with some other big dog tools.

Did it shift or something? I've been way too busy to really dig into it and look. I've got to clean a drain at the house this afternoon and get gas in the cars.
I've got projects lined up for being stuck indoors all weekend.

Edit: just dug into it. Looks like it's more along the Mississippi and Nola. We'll still get it but not as bad as east of us will.

With the 4PM update the National Hurricane Center has shifted Barry's forecast track slightly to the west, with the center moving right over Lafayette.
And back to YAY MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Y'all prep good baw. I just moved the trash cans to the back and ratchet strapped em down. Miata moved to the backyard. Gonna secure my swing gate, and move Kendra's car closer to the house and throw my Silverado outside of that to tank all the dps wind gusts casting mage wind spells and shit.

I'm coming back for Classic. We'll see how long it lasts. I plan to play casually but it depends how much my friends play.
Right now I'm just busy as hell. Since we're going to likely be stuck indoors this whole weekend I was planning on doing the whole bottom end assembly to my Meowta motor rebuild, and I also bought a cheap beater Jackson Randy Rhodes V to lay some tracks down for my bandmates so I can start writing again. I can't write and present them with just bass riffs because it just doesn't crunch and relay the sound/ambiance/tone I'm going for. So I got this to toy and record with. My Helix has amp and cab sims and impulse responses so I can get a pretty good amp tone to lay into Studio One to at least get the overall idea to my guys.

Jackson RR is my favorite guitar in the world. I'm probably going to re-subscribe for classic too, maybe we should pick the same server?

How the fuck do people play this thing? From what I get the Rhodes v is what this one is (the top angle is longer than the bottom, and it's asymmetrical). It was a cheap beater guitar for $129. I only plan on playing sitting down and man, the leg positioning is wonky but I can make it work. I play my basses classical style when sitting, so I need it between my legs and not on top.

I should have a whole crew going to classic. Just dunno what servers they're going to introduce yet. I'm intrigued tho

I only ever play standing up. The RR shape doesn't work sitting down at all. For a Jackson, the Warrior shape is the best one to play sitting down.

Not sure where you read that, but I doubt it. I may move some things around the house, but don't really expect to flood, I hope.
I'm more worried about my windows and debris right now. In the last flood we seemed to be in a decent spot compared to the surrounding neighborhoods. We shall see.

Godspeed my Red Stick friends
