Easy on the serpent water bro.......
Oh I'm down in the 170's now! Size 32 pants and large shirts. That stuff works wonders.


I'm talking about cutting off millions of dollars of payments for fleet vehicles and everything. This isn't just cutting off my supply of engine degreaser for my shade-tree mechanic job... 👍

Nice work!

32's and L-shirts are the biggest clothes I will let myself buy. Throw out all your 34's and XL's so there's no going back. Lol

That's exactly where I am now, making that decision. I feel freaking awesome!

I've learned about the sugar/glucose situation though. I can't actually fast 100% or I'll probably die. Without glucose I go into diabetic ketoacidosis. Heart palps and tremors and what feels like the onset of seizures. Mind you I had epilepsy as a child. But the cure for it is Milk. The milk brings me right out of it and I can "fast" that way. Longest I've went so far is 2 days and it's amazing because I'm not hungry at all. The meat is really the ticket to being healthy. A combination of meat and fat.

My secret is PHOSPHORUS...

Any food that contains a good amount of phosphorus has everything else you need. Look into it.

I don't know what happened to my video but also don't have time to worry about it right now. Might have hit the wrong button and nixed it in the editor.

Cookin with gas over here! Got things moving.

Pavers going in, quads getting fixed, Thatcher is on the 10 car, I'm working on the decking in the day and the TT at night, and the trailer is getting prepped.

Getting healthy is going great! Started lifting dumbells just to tone up a bit but I'm not trying to get big and carry muscle I don't need. The meat diet is phenomenal because it only costs around $400/mo to eat good. I literally spend 20-30 minutes per day worrying about food and that's a big difference than cooking oddball meals day in/out that aren't even healthy anyway and take up an hour here and there as well as excessive time in the grocery store. 1 big meat haul every other week or once a month is much more efficient. I'm diggin it.

Needed tools for framing and finish the decking, so I hit the pawn shop yesterday...

Brand New Rigid framing gun, used Paslode finish gun, roto-zip, brand new circular saw, Kestrel 5200, Schecter 7 string with Duncans, total bill $400!!

The 7 string is the coolest thing ever! Needed that in my life and didn't even know it!... Glad it's been raining! 🎸🎸🎸🎸

Here's some more of what I've been getting done. Built these planters today and most of the pavers are done. That area in the back beside the pavers will be planters. The large paver pad to the right is for the smoker! Making a raised bed flower garden with a coi/turtle pond and a few places to sit. Moving the chickens to the other side where the yard will eventually be.

Installed the mini split a while back for the garage. 36k BTU and works great. Heat pump too. You can see my pool equipment install there. 1 fountain/water feature pump, 1 spa, and 1 pool. The extra spa pump works as an assist. When all 3 pumps are on with the it moves some water.

Pergolas and deck framing up next!

I've attached the lug opening for the new wheels. That's for the NASCAR 1" lug nut and anyone is free to use it when designing their wheels. Save you some time. Pay it forward.

I'm working on the TT. Will update this week. Got some parts cut out and moving along. Most of my delay is that I want things cut out cnc and not "kinda close". I'm willing to spend the extra time. My son is young and we're spending time together anyway.

The other engine program isn't worth it. Talk more about that later.

Happy wife, happy life.

Gabie told me if I can build race cars, I can build her house up. Fair enough, she just doesn't know how much I'm charging her.

The 1" lug nut on the 5/8-18 stud with a 45 conical seat was developed by NASCAR. Uses a speed socket and the thread pitch is for clamping force. The 1" nut has a larger seat area.

This is about the only way you are going to have a sub 30 second pit, with a tire change.

Neat! Every little advantage helps. Now that I think of it, I think I’ve used one before. Has a spring for ejecting lug nuts and a general loose fit onto the nut for stab and trigger pull ease/quickness?

I saw that and was wondering if it would be possible for off-road. The rim is the easy part of it all.
Knock offs have been off-roader before. Some early class 1s I believe. Or maybe it was a few of the 8 trucks. I remember seeing knock offs in an old vintage off-road picture. I’m sure it can be refined for off-road use. Maybe gen2 of Argentino wheels?
