Nothing LONQR about that ^^.  I'd say she pretty much nailed it the first time.

At the risk of being insensitive, she has certainly "nailed it" as Jeff says...

It must be quite odd to steer that far behind the front wheels. Hes got to be sitting at least 15 feet or more back from the front.

How is that any different than driving a 40' race boat on a crowded start line?

Then you haven't been on crowded start lines in big OD fleets.

I hope he doesn't get rear ended by either an inattentive driver or someone overwhelmed by the oddity of the scene and forgetting to brake.

M8 - I couldn't watch that!  But if it claims to be the first underwater car, they are a long way off.  It must be 15 or 20 years since a team drove a toyota 4wd from one side of Darwin Harbour to the other - including crossing the shipping channel.  They were at a depth of more than 20' for several hours.  Controlling snorkel hoses long enough for the engine to breathe was one of the main difficulties.

I hope that house is slab on grade.  At 64# per cubic foot, I ballpark that that floor holding up about 200#/SF.  It is certainly doing the best it can. Yikes.  

What happens to the excess Archimedian/tsunami water when the lardasses fling themselves in?

And you cant drive on the road if I read correctly.

Why is a boxed frame new?  And FCA has a diesel now in the Jeep...  Not that I would buy one for at least a few years.

Yes of course.

If they give you any grief, simply point them to this thread for reference.

If TSA gets grumpy about some regulation whatevernumber, simply choose a different entry gate.  They make all that stuff up as they go anyway.

Its PB&J sammies that they are most concerned about.  You will be fine.

Not sure that door can actually open, even with the apparent leftover pieces wedged in there.  Besides the gelcoat will get a tan line.

It almost looks like the real door is already up and the rest is just temporary infill. That  top section is a slightly different shade and has less fake trim look than the ones below and the bottom edge of that section looks a bit like the weather stripping.

True, look for the Chinese vendors. We'd drink in the back of the store until we couldn't walk. What they told me is "Malaysia is a long long way from Arabia, so adjustments are made." You know they are big on drinking when every little market has 10 kilo sacks of sugar. Malaysia is a great place. They are absolutely nuts about Christmas too, go figure.

I will say that having a metal sliver plucked out of my eye followed by having the "rust ring" abraded away and 5 days of a pressure bandage over my eye taught me that any kind of shield between grinding and my eyes is a good thing. Did I mention that my day job at the time was flying F-14's off aircraft carriers?

 

I''ll give him points for eye protection.

Wire wheels too. I was probably 14 when I ignored the safety goggles that I was told to always wear and was shining somethingorother and a little wire spear hit just beside and below my left eye. Did no harm but left a lasting impression.

Same thing happened to me even though I WAS wearing Eye Protection. In 1967 they were those glasses with side screens. I was milling pop-rivets flush inside part of an airplane galley. (Nordskog in Van Nuys) The little bits of metal bounced around until they came from behind then bounced off the inside of the lenses and crashed into my eye.

The worst part was the every other day rust spot scraping. watching the metal instrument descend onto your eye and then start bouncing your eyeball around was CREEEPY!
