Some areas around Orlando are pretty concentrated with Spanish speaking folks, mostly from Puerto Rico, by way of New York. I endeavor to learn un poquito Espanol at every chance. If I attempt SOME Spanish,my efforts are often met with good natured teasing. If I make NO attempt to use Spanish, occasionally the customer will freeze me out. losing some of their English. Alot of Carribean people in that area too, but my attempts at French are never understood or appreciated. Seems that in any foreign tongue, I am able to pick u a few words, but completely lose understanding of what is being said amongst the rhythms and syntax of conversation.

The single speed doesn't have an amplifier.

The amp works on all year Hardbody and Pathfinder D21 vehicles.

You could have saved money by posting a Wanted listing in our classifieds. David29 is an admin on here and he also sells lots of parts for next nothing.

You outed my parts source.

I'm talking single-speed intermittent where the switch has three settings:
intermittent
low
high
As compared to variable speed intermittent where there's a knob that offers a multi-step intermittent:
intermittent (w/knob for rate adjust)
low
high
I was under the impression that both required the amplifier. If misinformed, great! Because I'm going to end up with a better intermittent system than I expected and for less money at that.

Both use the same amplifier.

The switch has a potentiometer to control the voltage. One uses presets, the other is newer and is more infinite.

I ended up with a very strange accent. I use PNW lingo, I can properly pronounce things like Yakama, Madras, and Willamette but I say other things with a light southern drawl and can even say New Orleans properly as if I were from Louisiana. I speak some French and some Italian so there is a little bit of that mixed in as I have family in France. It's strange.



I was called the "Imatation Yankee" by the guys I worked with. Haha!



I love languages. I'm hoping to learn German from a coworker and maybe a little Filipino from the ladies on the line.
Perhaps that wasn't the best example. I had just remembered it from a linguistics course I had to take, kind of in the same vein of soda vs. pop. German is a cool language. I took it for a couple years in school. Ze Germans like their rules and so if you can get past the ridiculously long words it's actually pretty straightforward. I don't remember too much of it now, though.

Si, wey. Necesitas estudiar mas, y hablar mas tambien. Es una idioma muy beneficioso para ser.

I'm not going to insert all the little accented characters, though. That's way too much work.

Did some crawling and mud skating today. Mud was only a couple inches deep but like sheet ice with water on top. Was amazing! That was fun! The crawling was interesting. Some loose rock, some mud, some crazy articulation (my truck doesn't do) and some luck.



Power steering pump got angry then fixed it's self. No idea why. Started making weird noises. Shut off the truck and checked the fluid level. All good. Noises never came back.

Default Shocks & Tires

Installed new shocks and tires today. Gabriel ProGuard - a RockAuto Closeout - for the front and Gabriel Load Carrier (Amazon, RockAuto was out of stock) spring-assisted for the rear. This work was overdue.

Before:


After:


These shocks are almost comical in this application:


Then to the local Mom & Pop tire shop for a set of General Grabber ATX 27x8.50R14. I went with letters out on the tires. Call me a contrarian. I like it:


The truck rides completely differently now. I was running Kumho Solus 195/75R14 (came with the truck) which are way too soft a tire for a truck. The old shocks were tired as well. The rear ride height is different enough that I can feel the difference in the seating position.

96noOptions - that is one good looking truck. And I like the fact that you left the rims just the way they were. Sometimes I just want that "honest" " I am a real truck!" look and damn man you got it!

So what I did today was continue to fight, and lose the fight with the bubbles that some f'ing how my plasti-dip has develop some bubbles in the middle body line.

I tried to inject with a syringe plastic model glue and super glue and well superglue dries shiny (fail ) and the plastic model glue melted the plasti-dip (fail).

Am quickly getting to the point of painting the that body line another color.

VERY FRUSTRATED because otherwise my first time paint job really really looked terrific.
