    Thermal Energy Storage, or why I've been scarce around here lately

    Eight Years Wasted I lost my job a few weeks ago. First time in my life that's ever happened. Looking back on it, despite some good times in the earlier days, that job was a nearly complete waste of eight years of my life. My salary increased an average of less than 1% per year since I...

    Functional horn button on quick-release steering wheel

    Hi guys. I posted a few weeks ago about getting a quick release for my 9-bolt Moto Lita wheel.

A friend with access to a lathe has offered to fabricate an adapter from...

    Problems with search engine again?

    I know I've discussed 01E transaxles a lot, but when I went to do a search the term "01E" along with my user name the search function only returned two results, both recent threads. This leads me to believe there is another indexing problem with the search function.

    Body prep and paint training event

    I've decided I'm going to paint my GT40 and I want to get some training on paint prep and application. It's been about 27 years since I've sprayed a car and to say I'm a little rusty is an understatement. Both Dupont and PPG put on training classes that are geared toward auto-body technicians...
