Life update, turned in my notice at work and going to work with a couple of electrical engineers who own a small engineering firm locally. I've worked with both in the past, so looking forward to this new adventure. I'm a senior instrument/electrical designer and while I'll still be doing some design work, I'll also be running all their projects and we will be building a team which I'll get to manage. Something completely out of my comfort zone, but also climbing the proverbial work ladder, so to speak. It's sort of a gamble to leave the job security I have now, but this whole thing just feels right. Always been in the background of their company, never crossed my mind I'd work for them. It's as close as I'll ever get to owning an engineering firm without a financial investment and my bosses will be awesome to work with/for. Worse case I'll have some good resume stuff to add and no problem finding a job in office with another engineering firm or even back out at the plant if I chose to.
Got sidetrack piddling in the shop while drinking my coffee and decided my mug needed to be etched so took the 30min to cut some decals and make it happen.
Going to Houston Auto Show Saturday so since my windows are tinted and wrapped, I'll scoop them up while there instead of getting them shipped. Pictures will follow, plan to put at least one on when I get home Saturday evening to see how things look and share some pics.
I've ran a radar detector since I had my license and while when a kid I did it more so I could speed, but now it is just nice knowing when cops are around or clocking people so still run one. I've planned to put one in the SLC and had enough Amazon points to pay for an average radar detector (Uniden DFR6) and ordered the universal BlendMount to fit on the Autovox LCD rear view mirror stalk (3/4" diameter). It didn't work out how I hoped, RD just seems too much in my field of view. I use the same brand mount in my daily and while it's definitely still in my field of view, I don't find it bothers me (took me a couple days to get use to it). SLC may be the same after driving with it, but it's a way smaller car and field of view is already limited. This weekend I'll see if it's possible and room to flip the mount around and have the RD above the mirror. Pictures as always.
