Re: I Needed More Focus In My Life

I just caught all of the hot hatch pics at the car show. Some wild machines! I like your carbon fiber engine cover. Very nice. There may still be a small window left to do a little cruising after you get your wheels, and tires on before the snow.

Have a great trip!

Re: I Needed More Focus In My Life

Thanks guys, what a trip it was! Saw one of the strangest things of my wife. My friend Dawn and I were crusing down I-94 and I saw an SUV being followed by the police. Turned out it was a chase and we saw it roll infront of us. On finding the video online you can see my car on the bottom left hand corner. Here is the link

https://wwmt.com/news/local/teen-lea...r-over-on-i-94

Boland's tire in 3 Rivers Michigan managed to fit me in to get everything mounted with the TPS sensors to bring it all back. The whole trip went very smoothly and we had a lot of fun. Besides visiting we went to Hop Cat Brewery in Kalamazoo which is known for it's spiced "Cosmic" fries, and man they were as good as described

I also attached a couple pictures of a "government" job I did when I was told to keep busy. A lot of people like the ST style emblem, so they create them for the SE model cars. They want a lot of money for 3D printed plastic, so I said I can probably figure this out. I found a program called Inkscape that can turn a picture into a bitmap that can be exported to a DXF CAD file. From there I redrew the logo over top of it as a template to create the ST logo. A bit more tinkering and I had it converted to an SE logo. Took about 4 hours total to do it, and I had them laser cut out of 14ga #4 brushed stainless steel since we had leftovers at work. They turned out quite well (the white covering is just protective). Total cost, about $15 dollars per emblem and I can say I managed to do it myself. I made a couple spare sets in case someone likes them

That will be the last road trip of 2019 sadly. Can't wait for 2020

Re: I Needed More Focus In My Life

Man, that must've been nuts realizing you were in the middle of a police chase and then seeing the truck roll in front of you!! Glad he didn't drive into you or something like that.

Wheels look good and nice work on the creation! It's always rewarding when you can create something like that yourself.

Thanks for the pics, looks like you've got some nice company too!

Re: I Needed More Focus In My Life

I'm sure that wasn't the kind of excitement you were looking for, Mikey. Glad you, and your friends had a good trip. It's always nice to sample a local brewery too.
I really like your new wheels, and tires. The wheels are the perfect shade of gray. And nice work on creating the emblems.

Re: I Needed More Focus In My Life

Thanks guys! Definitely have a great group there. I am very excited for the wheels, but it will be a long wait for spring sadly. It should look quite nice on the car tho I am hoping. Probably will have a few more changes for next year too
