Yep. They are famous for this. I don't want to see people lose their jobs... but I wouldn't mind seeing their CEO and exec's tossed under a bus.

Yep, exactly. We have a GREAT lawyer who happens to represent many other companies they've harassed so it worked out.

That being said, it worked out for the best and I'm glad it did, it gave me a chance to redesign that model to be OURS.

OMG I did a car thing!!

The company that we buy a lot of our guitar finishing products from also does a ton of aerospace stuff. I happened to ask my rep a while back if they had a high temp paint they'd recommend and they sent me a gallon kit of this aluminium colored, high temp epoxy paint they developed for Boeing. I sprayed some last year on some brackets and it's perfect! Color is spot on and its impervious to grease and oils. So I did this:




Scrubbed my T5 and got it completely clean and then removed all the bolts I didn't want to paint over.




Ok, so it's not really much of anything but at least it's something. I also dropped a guitar off with my machine shop, hopefully that'll motivate them to finish up the head and wrap up the last detail on the bottom end. I'd love to at least put the motor together.

I also got a set of the GAZ coilovers from Yoshi Fab a while ago... I think I mentioned those but I still haven't snapped any photos. LOL

Nice. Love the attention to detail, no painted bolts. Used a similar looking industrial paint on a whiteblock, looks great, like its fresh cast alu.

Anything is impervious to grease and oil if they are never exposed to it. lol

Exactly!

Honestly most epoxy paints would probably hold up the same or just clearcoat the paint for gods sake.

Sort of. The last year we've bought a new house, made major machine purchases at work and a bunch of other life gets in the way things.

BUT: the car is headed to the body shop in a couple weeks finally. I picked up a rotisserie and just waiting for a few parts I had to fabricate to finish getting cut this week. While it's out for paint I can finish up the new garage and put the screws to the machine shop since it's finally moving again.

I also bought a brand new xc90 t6.

Thanks everyone, it's much appreciated! It's been so frustrating to not have touched the car the last year (two?) but finally getting to the point where I can again. The good news is, I can fit a lift in the new garage too :D



I will say... this thing is pretty swanky.

It's so curvy...

I'll bet it doesn't even prevent rust on it's own (re: leak fluids).

Is it a 16 or a 17? Have the recalls done and software updates recently?

17. Haven't seen any recall notices but need to look into it. I do need a software update, there are a couple minor glitchy things.

I do wish it had a setting between fan 1 and fan 2, it's like "barely moving" and "hurricane" Otherwise, I freaking LOVE it. Had the full work crew for a week in Anaheim back in January, drove down, drove all over LA, came back. Everyone was super comfy and happy.





I made the "forks" from roundstock and had flanges plasma cut and welded up to mount to the bumper shock points. Speaking of, anyone happen to know the size and thread for the bumper bolts? I haven't unpacked everything from the move yet and not sure where those bolts went

The good news is, I have a body shop lined up and he's ready for the car. This was the last main thing to get done before it goes. So maybe in 3 years I'll get it back from paint! Huzzah!

While the wagon is out of the garage I'll be able to start doing all the lighting and power in the garage to finish it off.

Is that the big one that would go vertically thru the end of the shock (in the engine compartment) or the ones horizontally into the frame (on the sides of the shock). I need the sides of the shock ones.
