Nice to see you liked the custom work we posted last night, Mr. Negative.

Shadd'* pretty happy with the engraving. Andrew didn't know what it was going to be, but did know we were going to do SOMEthing.

Don't give me that crap. You'd be the first to tell me the same.

When Shadd rolls in for WCBF, I'd rather hang out and chat with him instead of fixing something that can be done now.

I don't think you have to worry about it. Shadd is aware of the cracked plug. He even knows how to fix it, if you can believe that.

I'd be worried about you...but Shadd'* the master. I know he'll get it done.

Too late, I didn't sleep in today. I didn't get to wake him up either.

Shadd'* on the road as of 8am PST. He'* got a LONG drive today. 12 hours to Rexburg, assuming no stops. I packed him a coke, a monster, and three energy bars.

He said he'd check in if he stopped overnight elsewhere.

IAC issues from a couple days ago. GM used so much loctite, these soft screws broke off during disassembly. Slotted carefully with a dremel, then new stainless steel fasteners and the PROPER loctite during reassembly:

Shadd admits he doubted my ability to extract a flush-broken M4.

Packed for the trip:
