I remember one of the VPs for Beechcraft doing that. My dad told me about it, it was a garage in the basement where you got out on the side from an incline. Weird shit rich people love to have built. :3

I found a neat way of restoring the look of plastic windows, in my case on my camping trailer.
I sprayed with Armor All protectant and just let it soak without wiping. After a bit, I used some Turtle Wax Extreme car wax (The runny stuff) and rubbed it clean with a soft cotten rag. The window in the photo is 8 years old. I discovered this when I accidentally got some wax on one of the windows.

That's cool. Looking into buying a used Truck Camper if I can and I'm sure any I find will have to be repair jobs.

Orange moo-moo. Been getting heavy here lately.



A little trick I found to loosen steering joints and the like. I have a bunch of 2" long 1.5" x 3/8" steel peaces I stole from the scrap bin at work. Anyway I found I could move the steering wheel to a position where I could make a little space filler between the joint and some sort of surface to press against then press out the tapered fitting using the retaining nut to press against the shims. I don't reccommend too much torque, just "enough" then use a bit of heat or hammer whacking to get 'em to pop.

This little gadget is amazing for creating a source of clean drinking water. Doesn't matter whats in the water, besides radiation of course. If you use this on it, you can drink it......that simple. I picked one up just in case. After I played with it bit, I put it back in the box, where it will probably sit forever, unless there was some kind of emergency which required turning nasty water into clean drinking water.

All you do is put a few grains of salt, (table or rock) and a thimble worth of water in the top, press the power button, and it makes a "brine" that you pour into your source of water. After 15 min, its good to drink, no questions asked. After using this, you might want to use a pump filter of some kind to remove any sand or silt in the water, but its not imperative that you do that. It will just have sterilized dirt in it if you dont.

Im a gadget freak. I thought it was cool, so I bought one. Who knows, it might actually come in handy some day.
