I did a different type of destructive testing before welding. I tested my fluxcore against my tig and then handed them off to our CWI here. He actually recommended i do the fluxcore. Mostly because i was getting some under cut with the TIG. Thats more on me than the process though. But since i was welding it, we used the technique i was better at.
there grandmothers bathroom drain pipes were encased in cement. Easiest way to get to them was through the kitchen ceiling since it was already trashed from leaks. I was able to switch out of the corroded copper pipes without even cracking a floor tile
The chief inspector, head of the DMV special service unit and an engineer QOA officer are coming out to Pittsburgh on 9/7 to personally inspect Exotruck.
I read over the vehicle codes again and besides fixing my horn, im goign to put that tacoma window washer bottle from foz, back into exo. Id love to run it off stock switch but i dont know if i can even trace that wire anymore.
no braggin. just trying to steer away from the DF go_blin forum before i put my foot in my mouth. Some one posted a wrecked one. I saw a lot of weld failures, stuff you wouldnt notice unless you been in fabrication business for 13 years. Not saying my welds are perfect but im also not mass producing these things.
I've had the car since 2003, so I guess I'll start one of these. 3rd owner, got her from Subaru of Thousand Oaks. I really wanted a RBP RS, but when I needed to get a car I could only find this BDP one. Slowly started modding it, and by 2006 she blew her head gaskets and my brother, my sister's...
The story of this car starts in a galaxy far away and probably not interesting to anyone. It was born in Japan, sold in USA, been to Canada and later shipped to Russia. From there it traveled to Germany to hit the "green hell". It has been through many stages and transitions of identity crisis...
picked me up another chassis. $600 and it runs, mostly!
Still have the ej20g, gearbox, RobTune and iWire harness, stance coilovers (I had just bought to replace my godspeed crap) and lots of other parts... so here we go again!
From the ashes, she will rise!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY
ID Vehicle: To simplify repairs/fixes/etc I'd love to know the cars history.
Main focus: handling, functionality, reliability.
End goal, yes the beaten horse "22b" exterior styling.
Technical Research (I'll post all my reading/research material links here)...
Welcome to my Members' Journal. As with other Journals on this board, this will serve to document the buildup of my car, from the purchase in 2005 to the present.
More than just listing modifications, I will use this thread for discussion and to "think out loud." This will not only help me...
