The Queen developed a short as I mentioned in my last post. I took apart the door panel to try and trace it, but I had no luck on that front. The problem area is definitely around the pass-through area, but it’s too cramped and with no way to quick-release the wiring harness to do a proper diagnosis, it’s something I…
I’m gonna bullet point this shit, and then throw articles at you.
Tried Google, CVN. Couldn’t find information on body panel and header frame mounting. I need to acquire this information so I can plan to get the body of my car realigned.
Left front sticks out more by about an inch. Right front looks fine. Bent frame? Bent control arms? What do you guys think?
Artsy fartsy picture of my car. The wildfire smoke is really bad.
During my visit at Systems for Public Safety, a police vehicle outfitter, I spotted these three beauties in their lobby. Alas, the 2nd-gen Crown Victoria Police Interceptor from Lakewood PD had been moved back to the station — I saw it during my visit last week.
So I’m in the market for new fog lamps for Killer Queen. After each night shift, as we get closer to the Autumn season, the fog has been getting thicker on the commute home. So I want to get something that will cut through it.
I’ve been looking at chrome options for Killer Queen. Unity USA sells a chrome spotlight using the X-LED light, and I’ve considered getting the push bars chromed as well.
Okay. With the summer coming to a close, it’s time for me to start looking at new all season tires. As I’m on a budget, but don’t want generic cheap crap, I’m turning to OPPO for advice.
Happened on highway 2 heading home around 2:45AM, went to hunt for a gas station that forgot to store all their squeegees for the night in the sleepiest town on the route. I also had to shoo a mosquito out of the car.
Decided to post the thing I recorded last night. Let me know if you can hear me clearly. This was recorded on my Galaxy Note 5. The topic is Trump’s decision to look into revoking security clearance of critics.
Where I talk about ordinary topics as well as the politics of the world. Maybe. I dunno. What do you think? A deaf guy like me can speak english, just not perfectly. Is it worth it?
I’ve been thinking about how to rewrite Queen’s Killer Queen into a proper automotive-centric song about my car. Here are the original lyrics.
I finished the paint job, weather conditions didn’t permit clear coat (too damp and cold), so I just touched up the silver basecoat in some places, and let it cure for the day. Mounted it now, and here’s the result.
I’m working on the PB400's silver paint. So I put on the clear coat. First two, three layers go just fine. Then suddenly, the last layer starts getting mottled spots and cloudiness in spots, not to mention runny. I’m gonna need a bit of help, y’all.
This time, it’s about ze pushbars. I’ve sanded the horizontal metal bars on the Setina PB400 pushbars using 250 grit on a powersander, and did accidentally go down to the metal surface in places. But that’s OK — this is an experiment to see how the new paint would look on Killer Queen.
See, the rear bumper on Killer Queen still has that annoying adhesive from when the Pierce County Sheriff’s website was lettered there. I’ve attempted Goo Gone on it, multiple times, and the adhesive is still there, in that mocking outline.
So I had gone on a beer run to get a 24-pack of Coors for the party last night, also picked up hotdogs and buns for cooking at the barbecue. Came back to the park, found that it had gotten even fuller. No parking available. However, there was space between the vehicles and the curb in the trailer parking area, and a…
No video. But I can tell you about it. After getting original wheels in good condition for my car, I came up on an intersection with an S10 that broke down in the turn lane. It’s a very busy intersection, one block off of Highway 99.
