Last Call: A Stormtrooper Chiron for your Star Wars day

Being May the Fourth, it’s only fitting that I give you guys something Star Wars related. There were a few things to pick from but this Chiron Pur Sport stood out. Of course, it’s only a render but I love seeing people get creative with million dollar plus cars. I mean you never know, maybe someone might be crazy enough to make it a reality someday.

I’d never heard of @sdesyn before this post but I really love his render style. It’s pretty unique and not so far out of the realm of reality that it’s obviously fake. I fell like that makes a great render, when people could easily see it happening even though it isn’t. So check his page out and May the fourth be with you. (cringe)

    Okay lockdown, you have forced me to make progress. You win this round, but my slacker powers grow ever stronger.

    (Okay, some of that was done before lockdown, but only up to 240 grit.)

      I managed to identify the need for and to execute the ordering of a new ignition lock ring/barrel for that messy Gilera scootie. My guess is that browsing Ebay and polishing that lid took the same amount of time…

        I could have saved a lot of time if I took the cover off the engine, but then what would I do with the rest of my day? (Answer: Probably search Craigslist for a pedestal mounted polishing wheel.)

    Today’s project is passenger window regulator in the BMW. Reading yesterday on what it was going to take to do it I discovered that BMW used reverse thread E7 external torx fasteners to hold the glass because of course they did. So yesterday I was off to Harbor Freight, which I was a little surprised was open, for new tools.

      The Harbor-Freight-ish shops here have been overrun for the entirety of the lockdown, because everyone is building, fixing, designing things. Add in trade restrictions from the great factory of China, and a lot of people go home again with business undone. Tried to get a replacement part for one of my sanders…basically impossible.

        I tried to get a replacement latch for a name-brand flip-down DVD player and found that to be impossible. I was told that there were so many design variations, and they were produced in so many factories that nobody tracks which version was made where on what date, and they just use up all the component pieces without retaining extras for spares. I imagine with no-name power tools, the situation is even more pronounced.

          Oh, definitely. But this is a standard sander which has replacement parts. Also, both maintenance parts, sanders and other tools were sold out. Only 50 of the parts I need would be delivered to all of Norway in freakin’ August.

          The same at IKEA or tech shops: Home office supplies like chairs, desks, PCs and monitors are cleared out. When we went to buy some paint, there were five people working the desk in front of a long line – normally it’s 2-3 people. The renovation frenzy is real.

      I like acquiring new toys for the toolbox as much as anyone else, but you wasted your money. The reverse thread fasteners can use the same E7 wrench you already had for righty-tighty fasteners.
