(cont from Part 3) Well, it’s up and in use, but I still need to finish tucking everything away, and patching the ceiling. The bolts have been lopped off, and cap nuts added for a better look. It’s super simple, and very basic, but that was the idea. The search is still on for some nice

Almost complete! Part 2 showed the partial assembly of our light. This part 3 has an almost complete view on the project. The bar is painted. Wiring done and tucked away. Chain connected. All that is left to do is take the old light fixture down, and hang the new one. I need to go
Continuing from yesterday’s “DIY Kitchen Island Lighting” post, I don’t have much of an update tonight. My Sputnik XPS13 ultrabook took a dive today at work, so I didn’t have much time to work on the project; instead I spent it rebuilding my laptop. Apparently, updating Ubuntu 12.04 to 13.04, on a dual booted system,

After many many many hours of wiring hell, failures, and no idle; we made it to having a running car. Now to button down the idle and mixture. Then, tackle the cage and other gear.
We didn’t have any cool incense burners, and were using a silly small pot with a bit of sand in it for a while. On a trip to Michael’s, I walked by a lantern and instantly had a thought; INCENSE BURNER! Grabbing the lantern, I ran around the store looking for something to hold the
Last week, in “W203 ’06 C230 Sport Intake Runner Valve Leaking?“, I was attempting to determine where the leak was, and what the solution would be. The discovery was that one of the levers for the intake runners had snapped off the end of the diaphragm arm, and was also broken from its shaft. The
OMG, why have I never heard of this before!?!!! I was just watching Chasing Classic Cars on Discovery Velocity, where Wayne Carini went to the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and discovers the lighter hearted variation of Concours d’LeMons! So, I currently am on a 24 Hours of LeMons Team, where we are building a
