That style, yes. It's not very old, probably 1920's.

This is my chair that has been refinished. Hand carved, 1860's-70's. It was very dry and there were old metal braces everywhere holding it together:




The middle chairs are 18th century Italian chairs:



I also do platform beds/headboards:



And a before and after on a free sofa we did for my brother:




I think I've posted some of these before. I take a lot of pictures of work stuff, just don't post it too often.

Re: Post random stuff from cellphone cameras: Part II


Amateur radio receiver/transmitter. Yes, I'm the dorkiest member here. I love old vacuum tube stuff, they remind me of my dad when he was an electronics tech in the USAF. This particular make/model set was, at the time in 1960, considered the Cadillac of radio rigs. It was built at still-implemented WWII mil-spec guidelines and can take an ass-whoopin' and still operate. They're still highly collectible today.

On the left is the receiver cleaned, realigned and re-capped, the right still dirty and nasty after both of them sitting in a shed for 32 years. This radio set originally belonged to the Jefferson Parish, LA Civil Defense.

Re: Post random stuff from cellphone cameras: Part II

I wish I knew more about old receiver's and tube amps and shit. That stuff looks like fun, and tube amps ftmfw. I wish I had a nice mid 70's hifi unit fro marantz or something. That shit brings some serious bucks nowadays though.

If you know how transistors work, you know how vacuum tubes work. The base of the trans is the grid, the collector is the plate and the emitter is the anode. Everything else in theory is the same, caps and resistors etc. Basic circuits are still the same, just with enhancements or mods. Of course tubes were used before ICs, microprocessors etc and the circuity was much simpler then, for better or worse.

I love the smell and the warm glow in the winter. A couple of old Fender tube amps and a shot or so of your favorite bourbon can warm the place right up.

they are crazygonuts new, 7k for an all gas, up to 10k for a dual fuel. Mine is a 2012 all gas, just like cars they depreciate. You can get a used one 3-4k. Sounds high and probably is, but cooking on it is amazing. We have family dinners here, breakfasts too, I am used to serving up the grub for 30-40+ people on holidays.

and to keep with the thread, did the fuel pump on the peeyooter long bed today.

If I may ask, how much did you get for it? It is impossible to find a Pinball around here for under $500 working or not, I paid $600 for an early 80's Gottlieb when I was in Denver a couple of years ago.

Re: Post random stuff from cellphone cameras: Part II

I listed it for $400 and had 5 calls in 20 minutes. I held it for the first guy, he didnt haggle. Should have asked more.

it had a problem with the connections between the top and bottom boards, like most old pinball machines. I opened it up to fix it and my wife told me it was not coming to the promised land (the new addition). So we sold it.

Re: Post random stuff from cellphone cameras: Part II

Small photo dump.

A bunch of new Corvettes.


Put the wheels and tires off my brothers old Bonneville on my car the other day. I'm gonna get the wheels switched eventually but the tires are brand new so can't complain.


Can your car ask you questions?


Drove over a man made lake by Des Moines, IA.


View from my brothers dorm room.



You can see my car in this one that's why I took it.


And since you all like pics of girls here's one of my gf and her new outfit lol.


And another.

Re: Post random stuff from cellphone cameras: Part II

if you look closely you can see the new connector laying to the left of the pump, and bare wires in the original harness from where I cut the original connector off. I was in the middle of splicing the new connector on when that picture was taken.

Awesome. I've built one tube amp from scratch, but the other stuff is from Fender, Ampeg, etc. I've been collecting tubes for several years, trying to build up an inventory of sorts. No better way to learn electronics, be it old school tubes or solid state, than to build, modify or repair it yourself.

Here's a shot I just took of the inside of the receiver in the pic above using my phone. It was so cool to see this thing alive again since it was last used in 1980.

Re: Post random stuff from cellphone cameras: Part II

Tube Amps are awesome, I need to get mine out, have my receiver recapped and replace the blown tweeters in my one set of speakers. I also have a speaker that the foam rotted around the woofer cone but they are only bookshelf speakers, they need some housing repair too.

Ah. Yup, plain as day. The bulkhead in that pic looked kinda clean like it was the new one, but with the older connector on it. I had to mention it because there's actually a video on YouTube of a doofus explaining how to transfer the original connector to the new bulkhead so you don't have to "inconvenience yourself" with splicing wires.

Re: Post random stuff from cellphone cameras: Part II

nope, I am not the doofus. although you should have seen my wifes face when I used a barbeque lighter to shrink the heat shrink.

yesterday it was LD2 (loving daughter 2) sonoma, today its LD1 crv. the old sesame street song goes "one of these things is not like the other..."

new head


so I finally got the wrong door

traded out for the right door

matches the back door now

and the rest of the doors and windows. The new windows are 5ft tall, 4 ft wide casements. will be a lot different (and safer) than the old 13" tall 30" wide awnings. Only the cat could escape through those.

Re: Post random stuff from cellphone cameras: Part II

Kind of impressed with the shot my phone was able to take. I didn't have the right lens on the DSLR so I used my Galaxy S 3 for this shot. Macro shot of the wrinkles on my valve cover.

Not fantastic quality, but good enough that you can see some of the detail.

I'd definitely recommend it! With a K&N intake, the valve cover is a lot more visible so this was a great way to clean up the look since I'm not big on chrome/polished stuff.

Re: Post random stuff from cellphone cameras: Part II

Same here. I painted mine red when I replaced the engine along with the block. Starting to out grow the red valve cover though. Has that obviously painted look. The wrinkle paint looks more proper.

Grabbed this at the jyard yesterday. Paint is rough but no nicks, cracks, fogs are almost perfect etc. Sadly the lights were shot. May install the handles in the Noma today. We'll see of course.

I was between red and black when I did mine. Initially thought I was going to do red but made a list minute switch to black. This is what I was going to go for:

Trust me. Thats the same thing that happens to me. Last time i was at that particular jyard there was a white Envoy that
Was missing literally everything that made an Envoy an Envoy. Someone knew what they were picking at lol. I was glad the bumper was in great shape. Not sure what I'm going to do with it but I wanted grab it to play with on the Noma.

That's the look I'm going to go for on the Canyons valve covers when the time comes. I've seen it done before and it looks sick. I'll likely go for a crinkle black on the Noma as I said before. Or of I'm feeling saucy I'll get it a nickel/chrome plated.

Re: Post random stuff from cellphone cameras: Part II

Thanks guys. No more birthdays after today. I've got that Benjamin Button disease. I'm getting younger from here on. We are having a birthday bonfire out on my land in the mountains tomorrow night. It will be the first fire in the area where my house will eventually be. I haven't spoke to my friend kentucky bourbon in a while

The bug has been sitting since '08 so it needs a good going over. My dad is a air cooled vw guru. He eats,sleeps, and the rest is vw. He has a vw baja bug, vw bus, vw trike, and my stepmom has a karmann ghia and there are multiple vws he has built for other people. The engine is stuck so we have to pull it and tear it apart. No biggie. I want to put a clutch in anyway. It will obviously need the gas tank drained and flushed, brakes, wheel cylinders, tires, etc. There'e a little rust in the floor pans but nothing serious. There's just a few small rust issues with the body...mainly 2 small finger size holes in the doors and one under the rear window. Nothing major. Otherwise the body is very straight and the doors close with one finger.

Ultimately I'd love to chop the roof and pull the fenders off like this but for now that's a pipe dream.

So for now, a mild drop and getting it safe and reliable is the goal, and maaaaaybe a paint job and a rag top. I want to make a daily (for now) out of it so I can park my 78 toyota hilux and make it nice. I want to find some vw pattern mesh wheels like these

Or use easy to find mesh wheels with some lug adapters.

Jerry, I appreciate the invite. I am not on the samba but I do get on and look around once in a while. I will post a project thread when I get started working on it.
