October did go faster, but I think that was because I didn't work half the month

I like DLS. I'd much rather have permanent DSL.

I haven't looked forward to a birthday since my 21st.

My 25th was the last one I cared as my insurance dropped in price.

Lmao I'm a big fan of the bolt "gussets" at the base of your flag pole. I think you need more bolts of random lengths and type though for artistic purposes.

How so? What kind of shape would I make?
I need to find a place that sells really heavy flags that can withstand high winds. These harbor freight flags are garbage lol.
Oh and fyi don't weld brake line, for some reason after being welded and when it cools it becomes extremely hard and brittle. I tried using a propane torch to heat it up to get it to soften but no go. My makeshift upper support broke on the way to work. Flag pole is still standing but its bent at the bottom a little.

Not necessarily a shape but like a mad-max kind of flag pole "roots" like tree roots. I'd use a cable for your top support.

You still didn't paint your wheels red, white, and blue?
For shame.

I can't really articulate why I like the bolts welded in there I just think it's funny for some reason which I assume is kind of the whole theme of that car. More bolt anchors would make it more ridiculous which is more better

I was looking for some slightly thick cable for it but couldn't find any. I know I have a bunch of window regulator cable laying around somewhere. I got a 12ft long piece of rebar I might use too.

Buy the paint and I will. Guys here said I should put tow mirrors on it but backed up when I said I would if they supplied them. One of the points of these "mods" is that they have been either free or stupid cheap.

I do plan on adding full cage to the mirrors eventually so I quit ripping them off when I go off-roading. That'll add to the mad max "façade"

Are you suggesting another excuse to do a road trip?

You could get away with fairly thin cable. If you do rebar you may have to triangulate the connection with another piece of rebar or when it sways back and forth it could cause it to crack out over time.

Why? Go to Royce because he knows what he's got

Also, I would need to book a week off to do that trip minimally.
