Re: Hand Sanitizer

Neutrogena intensive moisture wrap body treatment unscented. 10.5 oz version. They seem to have a larger version, maybe with more water? Water soluble and washable. They have a hand lotion, but I don't like it as much. I find it will remove grease from your fingernails, with ivory soap, after it soa...

Re: Amperage draw before and after DC to AC inverter

A sealed inverter like the morning star will survive better than one with a fan. I've seen connections doped with silicone dielectric that looked like new after decades in place. That quality of equipment always had heat sink compound between the transformers and the aluminum case too. All like new....

Re: Amperage draw before and after DC to AC inverter

Voltage and length are the main factors determining wire thickness required. As voltage goes up, the amperage for the same total power goes down. So 12 volts requires thicker wire for the same total power = wattage. It's the same way mass and speed can result in the same foot/pounds with different s...

I need a baffle box to keep. Was it bbadger that posted some interesting design ideas? If you want to burn it, it severely limits materials and time.

I would think a slight tilt outwards at the top would direct sound better.

Re: The Car Thread

Beautiful combo! Love that year. Steve and Juicy of Illville brought a vintage fifties car and trailer in pastel green out one year. I think the car is named Billy. Quite surreal to see it out there. If you ever want to go manual again, the richmond 5 or 6 will take the abuse. http://www.aric.org/bl...

Re: Anyone hit the playa while on chemo?

There are cooling vests that use evaporation and some that don't.
Might help.

If you can go to altitude a few times, 4000 to 8000 feet and start acclimatization, it will give you an edge when you get there.

It really must have been a hell of a job.
I think it must have been applied by hand, like ferrocement or plaster, in a thick mix, like they use on boats and concrete domes.

I'll try to.
That car has no 'behind the back seat' unfortunately, other than the window.
I would never leave a gun on a rack unless it was a locking version, Rhino.
I can tell you that a rifle will fit behind a ranger seat, at least on the larger 98 version.
