That's a pretty large printer you must have. Model?

I have a Robo 3D R1+ it has a 10x9x8 print volume. The outside ribs have to be printed one at a time because they take up the whole bed. I'm very happy with it with only a few minor tweaks.

Very nice. The picture makes it seem larger but that's still a nice size.

Got stuck today outside the amavida coffee shop in rosemary beach, fl. when I got back in the truck, tried to start, starter motor did not engage and just spun non-stop. Had to disconnect the battery to get the starter to stop spinning even with the ignition off. It spun for so long that the battery started to lose charge and when I got a jump the starter finally quit spinning and I was able to start it and get it to engage. After that I drove to O'Reillys to get a new battery as mine was five years old. I'm hoping the old battery was the issue because I've already replaced the starter and as I recall it was fairly difficult extracting the two allen bolts.

Installed jump seats. Better for the kids (than the bench) now that they are getting older.

Also oem springs and bilsteins. Tremendous improvement to ride.

Oh, and installed the badger 2 fds top.

Almost ready for spring!

Replaced my starter tonight, the new battery did not solve my issue and the starter gear would still sometimes just spin without kicking the gear out. Removal went easier the second time around (first was ~60,000miles ago when I had to cut the head of one of the bolts off and the rest of the bolt came out just using my fingers!). The hardest part this time was removing and re-installing the heat shield. On removal it wouldn't come out the bottom and on refit it took quite a bit of patience and manipulating to get the heat shield back in place and then in just the right spot to start the one 10mm bolt that secures it to a bracket in the RH motor mount bracket.

I finished up installing Superpro bushings on my D90. The thing almost drives like a new vehicle now. No more wandering and a smoother ride. Definitely worth the money and effort.

wasting my life rebuilding my truck.

Designed and built a new minimalist dash based on lessons I learned over the last 5 years. 5052 and 3003 aluminum. I was inspired by a ride in a Robinson R44.

I'm not sure what gauge I want for the center. I originally thought a clock, but then I realized that I don't have a gauge for my OBA. Choices choices..

Machined heads, new head gasket, new water pump, new thermostat, lots of new hoses, new mean green starter.

She runs dead even on the temp gauge now and sounds badass at start up with the mean green.

Thanks Don! The later you do it the better for sure. To many other variables really to work through...
