Dude....what planet do you call home?
I have my Weller with a tip, a sponge, some small resin core solder, a set of helping hands, a vacuum solder sucker outer, some solder braid, needle nose, picks, small reamers, and an extension cord......oh and a great set of roach cli....oops I mean hemostats!

But if you need extra tools, I have a Hakko 936 soldering station (I've got a few different sized tips good from ICs up to PL259 connectors), Goot CS-30 soldering iron with a regular 1.5mm tip, a big ol' roll of Kester '44' 63/37 in 0.025" diameter (I also have heavier gauge 60/40 and some 0.025" 62/36/2 silver solder if someone really wants it), a Panavise, a mini bench vise, bunch of electronics hand tools. Let me know if you want any of it for the assembly line. Years ago I went through soldering training at HP, but I'm worthless for anything smaller than about 1206 or 50 mil SOIC. I just let the techs downstairs do the 37 mil pitch and finer and the 0805, 0603 and 0402 junk.

i think i already have the window mod cause mine does auto up and down. i have no urge to see my "d" light...i think that would be annoying. i use my scanguage for temp readings, but i suppose it would be good to have the mod in case anything happens to the scanguage. i definitely would like to come check out all the action.

anybody know how to fix tripmeters? that's not working on mine.

mike, i don't have the bent axle mod, but i've got the "bent everything else" mod...i'd be more than happy to share it

Hopefully, the goober is from Mars and not Venus!
That's the only thing I can think of Dave and thanks for reminding me I need to mail Hulk a check. Oops!!
Kevin, does the WebMaster have to move the thread to Members Only or can we do that ourselves? Also, since you da man with the skills and the parts, when would you like to see this thing occur? That would best be answered when the thread gets moved, I suppose.

It all started as a little boy....I took stuff apart and if dad couldn't put it back together and I couldn't put it back together I got....

My stuff may not fly very far but it usually holds up to the landing.

So, what do you do?


I supported the Mars spacecraft and the Magellean (Venus) Spacecraft and designed the onboard computers for a bunch of spacecraft I can't talk about.

Front and rear axle rebuild, replace rotors and brake pads, coolant flush, PHH replacement, front/center/rear diff fluid exchange, plugs and wires, PCV, oil and oil filter change, ATF change, wiper replacement, etc.

Although technically I guess you don't really need to remove the dash to complete these items
