Re: Lift is in, car in air...

From my post regarding the Battery design issues on the 787 back in April of 2013: "We've been expecting to see some harsh treatment from the NTSB. The approval process that was used during the development phase was used because the FAA does not possess the manpower with the knowledge base to make t...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Plans completed. Minor alteration to the footprint- seismic limitations only allow it to be 35 ft wide, without small stiffening walls on the interior. That, and instead of it being a big box, I did a 4x10ft cut back at the man door entry to give it some detail. In order to get the SF back, I made o...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Quick story update. Another denial in April. This time for the shop being a Web Steel Buildings ‘kit’, even though it would be sided and trimmed to match the house, since steel buildings are not allowed. I like them because they have a clear floor, with vaulted interior ceilings. Statement was that ...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Shop update. Attended December's monthly Board meeting. Explained clearly my intentions, lowered the footprint dimensions to be under the 'problematic' over 1800sq ft issue (36x48=1728 sq ft). Pushed hard to make them understand the idea that I required their 'tentative' approval of the plans before...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

I agree with you, Byron. The only problem I have with that plan is that I'm not dealing with people who have any real building experience or knowledge, as these are retired members of the neighborhood. I had reviewed the HOA limitations, and designed within them, but there's the portion of the HOA t...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Went to N. Carolina for 17 days in August, home a week, and then just returned from 23 days in Santiago, Chile. While in NC, my wonderful collection of old ladies who are on the architectural review committee of the HOA denied my shop design. Back to the drawing board for a re-design. Sigh..... I wi...

Re: 15" Riken Mesh wheels for sale

Wait. So now they charge you to come across? Or is that when the intent is to sell something to a US citizen? I've gone through the import/export process. I don't recall if there was a minimum req'd, or how that went, but I was selling my rotary Mazda's and parts as a lot into B.C., and they banged ...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Update... Been a few months (and repairs-Germany, South Korea, Ontario). Big day at the house yesterday: After about 3 months of waiting (due to the current construction market), my dirt guy pulled the 5 stumps out of the yard. Over the winter, I had dropped and gotten rid of 5 large evergreens, and...

Like an itch that demands to be scratched, I went and checked it again. At this point, I'm ready to keep him spooled. He seriously has a problem... Apparently, I'm a snobby Brit who needs to 'follow my Mama's advice'.... Uh,Wut? I may actually contact JNC and have them review it, to maybe reel this ...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Heading home on the 15th.... Finally. Now I have to re-learn how to work. 58 days of not touching tools is too long. Did a bunch of project planning and design work for the house/property. Designed the shop, all the way down to the plumbing, and bar in the loft area! BTW- If any of you want a good l...

Re: Fuel Pressure Regulator

Free time at the hangar here in Ethiopia, and I'm reviewing the Tech section. Since no one has chimed in for almost 2 years, I can toss in my experience. Ran this version on my Rx2, with the Holley 4 barrel. I mounted it on the strut tower, and plumbed an in-line gauge right after it. The setting on...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Well, here we are, 2 weeks past their return to service 'dream' date.... Shocking. Our being here and seeing the limitations of their abilities has forced them into a quality level that they had no intention of meeting, Originally, there was NO quality assurance personnel to verify very specific, cl...
