    Roll Call !!!! What's going on with your Hot Air?

    Disagree all you'd like, that's your priviledge (and it was nicely done, thank you!) But-- Just a short answer to your 'understanding of hot-air tech'. Had you been on this board in the late '90's and early 00's, you'd remember that a great deal of what went on in this neck of the Buick...

    Roll Call !!!! What's going on with your Hot Air?

    I don't much get on the old board here. Just don't have the time. Which means I sure as hell don't have the time to read up on all the trash talking. But I have read some of it. And for some reason I'm still a moderator, so I have some opinions... The title of this thread is "what's up with...

    Stock "appearing" radio delete plate

    Just so y'all know, while they may look white, the lettering and stripe are painted with a silver metallic Sharpie paint stick. And fwiw the whole overlay is gloss black. Neither of which matches the dull black and gray factory radio bezel. It DOES however, perfectly match the rest of the...

    Cover/plate for Innovative Boost Controller

    Here's some final pics-- Claude's--- 2-plex glossy version, & closeup 2-plex matte version, & closeup Anodized version, & closeup ======================= They turned out pretty good. And I'm NOT afraid to say they're pretty tedious to make! Thanks everyone! :)

    Cover/plate for Innovative Boost Controller

    here's a photochop version where I just xferred/pasted the orange from the outer lines--(the orange from the side is darker than the logo, so use your imagination) ;) The green is just green I drew in for Claude... Claude, you want your other borders white or orange?

    Cover/plate for Innovative Boost Controller

    Claude, I can't make the entire area around the holes white, because this creates a relief engraving situation with the lettering--meaning, I'd have to engrave out everything BUT the letters. Because the letters are so small, even with the smallest diameter cutter tool I could come up with, tool...

    Cover/plate for Innovative Boost Controller

    Here ya go Claude---damn, these things are a lot smaller than I thought! Didn't realize it till I cut the blank for this... anyway, I need to tweak the setup so the engraving isn't so "fat"... BTW, on Steve's plate, the first two upper holes were outlined, but in the photo above, only...

    Cover/plate for Innovative Boost Controller

    Claude, the lower photo of the sticker will work fine. Can anyone post or send Mark a pic of an original so I know what it looks like? Doing the colors you want in 2-plex will be no problem! (NOTE- that much paint on top of anodized aluminum will be real time consuming and tricky to get right...

    Cover/plate for Innovative Boost Controller

    Now that I know who I did it for, I found the job---(thanks Steve! :D ) So tell me guys, does this cover replace an existing cover? I'm assuming so as ff sez his is peeling off. And if so, then I'll assume the size and cutouts must remain the same.... I'll start working up some graphic...

    Unethical Vendor

    So who is this Mark guy anyway? I've never met him, and I've never bought a damn thing from him. ;) But he's almost like family. We've been doing business together for 8-1/2 years. We live 2000 miles apart. And as he mentioned above, we've spoken on the phone ONE time in that 8-1/2 years...

    Sticker shock!

    That's insane...Faria should start selling "car" gauges. (Faria makes "marine" gauges)... Right now I can buy a tachometer, a speedo, a fuel gauge, an oil pressure gauge, a voltmeter, a water temp gauge, AND a trim meter (like I said, marine) from a Faria distributor for less than $140 for...

    A good way to get back at those junk mailers and Credit Cards!

    I've heard of guys taking this to the next level---they grab a box, fill it with a bunch of useless junk, then tape the PP envelope to the box and drop it off at the post office...the company gets a box of trash AND have to pay the shipping!

    Physics question.. can you figure it out?

    final answer from me, here goes: Strap a jetpack to your back, then get on a log in the lake. Now start running. Soon you're running about 12 mph, but you're not moving because the log is matching your speed. Now fire up the jetpack. Now, if someone can logically explain how the log...

    Has anyone ever used one of these ?

    I've been putting a bug in everyone's ear to see if santa will bring me one of those this year (and a tire balancer)... I learned to change tires with a manual unit just like that one... and no, the tires won't take themselves off, you need to add some elbow grease! But change one set of tires...

    Physics question.. can you figure it out?

    FOR EVERY ACTION THERE'S AN EQUAL AND OPPOSITE REACTION... In the case of the conveyor & plane, think of it this way: The planes wheels are on the conveyor, and 10 strong men, NOT on the conveyor, are holding ropes attached to the plane. The conveyor starts moving, spinning the tires, but...
