The Vulcan has landed.

Well I was finally able to go and pick up a welder.  A total faff, but that is my fault.  I still have to clear out a ton of crap "AKA Facebook Marketplace items"  but I am optimistic that I can put my foot to the pedal in the next week or so.        Before I do anything else, I need to get the fenders cut and squared away.  I am hoping that I am able to teach myself how to Tig.  I have a couple of projects around the house, including welding a stout 3/8" thick stainles

The end of the beginning

Howdy there to the massive following of 6 people.   I hope you are well.    So the purge of the immense amount of crap is largely completed we are still trying to get rid of a washer/dryer and a couple bits of furniture and old tech.  This is good news because I am able to get the garage cleaned out and sorted.  It is taking a while to get things hung and plumbed, but I am happy with the results so far.     Here is a couple of pics to give you an idea of what I am working with.  The sh

A quick pause for our safety sponsors.. Audi.

So after some soul searching I realised that in order to do this thing right (and safe) and not feel rushed I needed to get a daily.  I have been considering it for a while as I haul precious cargo often and drivers here often do not pay attention to red lights or stop signs.  I wanted to get something that would be safe, air conditioned and something my significant other could drive.   So when I was presented with an opportunity to get my friends 2004 Audi A4 i.8t I said yes.       My

Sensing something is different (this time).

Good afternoon everyone.    Welcome to phase II.     Just to make sure that everyone is up to speed.  I purchased a basket case turbo setup from a fellow member.  After I sorted out everything, including a somewhat surprising turbo rebuild, I am just about to start with the first steps to getting the turbo installed.    The hard part for me is (besides getting the time) is that I need to make sure that the result is safe and reliable.  There are some things that BMW
