    3D printed bits

    Much easier the second time around. Bought a set of wheel hub caps to use as inserts. Modeled the horn pad. Printed the bits.

    Hella LED Third Brake Light (High Center Mount)

    Ask for a comparison between HTPLA and PETG. Also, UV resistance/protection against sunlight.

    What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Going to attempt something like this?

    DIY evaporator

    I am about to take the unit apart and rebuild it. The reason? For the last few months, I have not been able to come up with a suitable design for the center console faceplate that would also allow for a radio. Last week, while staring at it, it dawned on me that if the unit was about 1" taller and the drain hole location was 1" further to the right, the existing Behr center console faceplate would fit perfectly. Hey, when I first built this thing, my only concern was to wrap as small as an enclosure around the evaporator as possible. Live and learn.

    Ebony or Cocobolo?

    Had some time on my hands. Wanted to try two things: 1) Use plywood as the raw material, and 2) Try CA glue to get the glass-like finish.

    Not at all. Is that a full tang? How did you create the pattern between the two handle pieces?

    That appears to be a Delta Rockwell lathe. How did your dad manage to get all the equipment down to his basement? Very clever with the hood. I will attempt something similar. Please thank your dad for me. Best, Trieu

    Came across a piece of wood with a certain characteristic. I give you "The Eye of Sauron" 😁

    Tom's shift knob was inspired by the uber rare Alpina knob. Long bodied - yet, sitting low on the stick. I was just trying to keep up with his gorgeous unicorn E9 interior.

    I was going to do something with a vacuum hose attachment... 😁 Yes, please send some pics. I would be very grateful.

    Thanks for pointing out the danger of turning and sanding wood. I wear a dust mask and a face shield while working on the wood lathe.
