  • Conundrum: lol, they're contagious and more lights coming on, worrying to see the oil pressure indicator and also the windshield washer fluid lights, however I'll just wait and see if it goes away when things dry out. Good thing I took it through emissions this morning. Never Fails. lol
    October 02, 2018, 11:49:37 AM
  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

I took some 3/4"x3/4" steel angle iron and welded some bent flat stock onto it so the bar sits down below the wind fairing.

Not my X, but its basically the same as this:


EDIT:
Here is a photo of my setup.

Hey, I remember you saying recently you got your timing belt changed and whatnot. Did the place you went to also change out the water pump? I'm trying to find price quotes for the job around my side of town, unfortunately looking at $800 and up...

Rosie,
Airpark Auto Service does all the work on my truck. They are up near the Scottsdale airport. I'd call them to get a quote.

Here is a new crossbar I'm fabricating to hold my CB antenna and eventually a shovel and Hi-Lift. I'm using a Miller Diversion 180 TIG welder and it makes beautiful welds.

Yeah that CB mount came out awesome, I like how it folds for low clearance. We'll be looking to you for more cool fab mods ;D

Shrock Rear Bumper coming soon.

I also just picked a used Oasis 2 RTT on my way back from California. Without the ladder, it weights only like 40 lbs which is pretty great. Hopefully I can go camping with it this weekend.
