3/4" air impact does the job quite well. ;-) lol. my 1/2" cornwell gun does well, but my 3/4 IR composite is the one i go to for the big shit.

its been a while since anyone posted here. I washed the eagle again last night, now its all shiny again. even washed all of the mud out from under the flares. since there are going to be more people than normal in town this weekend, I figured it is a good time to confuse people! :derder:

WHAT??!! wash mud off?? it woulda been even MORE confusing to people to go find a mud spot and just get the eagle covered in mud. that would make them really want to know what the hell was under it. ;-) people look at honeybadger alot more when its covered anyway. lol.

p0wn, this would be to the front cv shaft maybe? its a BITCH if you dont have air tools i know. im spoiled tho, and wont be without a 30 gallon air compressor anymore for my air tools. i got tired of hauling my air tools back and forth to work (50 miles one way) so i just left my older IR stuff here at home, and bought some new cornwell air tools for work. easier to do warantee on the cornwell than IR.

so far it seems to attract more attention clean in town than when dirty :roll: it almost seems that when dirty, the opinion must pop into peoples minds that it is an old beater.

Here lately all the nice weather has been on days I have to work so I haven't had a chance to do anything in quite some time. But today after work (and thanks to daylight savings) I had a few hours of nice, sunny day left to do something (though not much). I feel bad but I stole the metal sunvisor brackets out of the '87 to put into the '81. Honestly it didn't start out that way, I was actually planning an attack on the plastic visor brackets but it will take some time (more time than I'll have in the next week or so) so that will have to wait for now. The '81 driver seat managed to bite the tips of a couple of my fingers with that metal bracket in the reclining part of the seat :cry: hurt a bit, instant blood blisters. Also took off the driver side door stuff to get the mirror off and (hopefully) fixed that damn saggy, wobbly ass mirror once-and-for-all. Did this once before but it worked itself loose again :evil:. The metal and screws that hold the neck/arm and head together on those mirrors is what I am having problems with and the metal in those mirrors suck, it's way too soft. I am really sick of taking door panels, mirrors and all that crap apart.

Little tack weld on the roll pin will do the trick ;) .
