Yes, we are unbelievably fortunate to be as well funded as we are. Our Undersheriff is real big on side scan sonar and ROVs. He and one of the volunteers were instrumental in taking SeaRay 'rich guy toys' and turning them into SAR tools. He has pushed very hard for a very long time, pursuing...
Sorry to thread dredge. Wanted to share my experience with chains. The diamond pattern from tirechain.com go on super easy. I run the reinforced diamond pattern.
I ordered 265/70-17 for my winterforce tires. They are slightly small but work okay. They fit the silent armor 265/70-17 on my...
Our boss showed us some love in a local paper this weekend. We are an all volunteer organization that serves the largest county east of the Mississippi, bigger than the state of Connecticut.
I upgraded from a K100 to a D750 about 9 months ago. I was having electrical issues with the K100 and started noticing issues that you mentioned became more glaringly obvious; focus, grainy, etc...
Over 20 years of prehospital/wilderness emergency medical experience. Started in boy scouts, then open water life guarding, ski patrol (500-700 volunteer hours / yr), currently volunteer SAR. We see about 400 calls per year and I roll on about 1/3 of them.
A recent training presented an...
Yeah the odds are not good, some times it works, mostly it doesn't. I'm 0 for 11, but most of my calls are back country. First one was a lightning strike at a beach when I was 14.
Look at it this way. You need to triage your money/time. OP, do you already have EMT level training, with lots of...
Painted cured over night. Mounted it up and reinstalled the top hat.
Then I realized I forgot about figuring a method to mount the damn front plate!!!
I will have to figure something out.
Got copper anti sieze smeared all over the place.
Forgot to anti size the 2 o'clock bolt...
Initially, I really wanted to mount the contactor very close to the battery in order to minimize the length of cable that is always hot. That proved impractical. There just isn't enough room. I didn't want to complicate matters for a future potential dual battery project.
Sanded, blasted and primed
Got the minor weld splatter cleaned up, bead blasted and a couple coats of primer on. Hope to get a few coats of matte black on before the night is out.
Also, found donor for a future engine swap.
Think it will fit? Might have to push the fire wall back a bit...
Fabrication almost complete
Got a lot done last night, even with two SAR calls mixed in.
Bumper is welded up. Need to clean up some edges with the flap disc and bead blast it. Then a couple coats of primer and then some matte black.
