Your alignment looks good to me.
Lard(grease the pans), olive oil and flour make it an impossible task, trust me, I've made tools to make the task of cleaning the wire racks easy but even my 2300 psi pressure washer won't pull that film off.

Would cost a boat load of money to pay my employees to keep the damn thing spotless...and I have 4 of them.

I ship!

Doesn't help the previous owner was ridiculously terrible at cleaning. Hadn't in 4 years greased the mill. Cost $500 to replace all the bearings on the damn thing due to it being from the 80s. But that is still better than 15k new, and their shitty quality granite stones to grind the wheat! OK I'll shutup about the bakery now...

Don't get me started on the oven, mixer(140qt hobart...**** Hobart as a company), and any other equipment.

As far as I get today. My stupid *** left my injectors seals in the head when I took it to the machine shop so I need to order some new ones from Injector Dynamics.

Third time's the charm on the Injector harness. Messed up each runner length last time and had a lot of bunched up wire that was bound to fail at some point. Also, it is my mission to get rid of all the home depot 16g wire I used. Bulky stuff and comparing wire sheaths, the MXL is leaps and bounds better quality.

Also love this vulcanized high temp sheathing I've had sitting around forever. Get a sharp knife to cut it otherwise it is a pain.

Still need to crimp the OEM Miata plugs into it to tie it into the factory harness but it is 115 in the garage!

<p>Tried out Day Donuts today. A little too chewy for my liking. But the apple pie filled with cinnamon crumble on top was out of this world.</p><p>Does the chewy bit come from the undercooking we discussed in Mobius' thread?</p>

That sounds absolutely amazing. Any yes, they let it fry shorter to keep a little more moisture in the cooked product and thereby have a longer shelf life. I get it, but that is why you get good at your predictions on how much you'll sell. I would rather sell out than have to donate it to the homeless shelter. You don't get full compensation for those donations sadly(tax wise). Sounds horrible, but any business owner in the food industry gets that point of view.

<p>They aren't long enough to bite yet. The dirt underneath is just perma-dirt.</p>

Apple pie with a crumble top is like my favorite pie second to Lemon Strawberry Rhubarb pie(oh god it is amazing). In donut form...yum. Wish we had a good donut place in Southern Utah.

I bet you boys have perfectly sculpted manscapes too.
That harness is beautiful Jeff. Nice job with that tape, it's tricky to wrap it that neatly without bunching it up and ruining a few strips.

Uggghhhggg I so miss living in the ghetto next to donut day.
The buttermilk is the best one. I went there every Saturday for 3 long years while I followed the wrong career path at Intel

That El Salvadorian place around the corner on 185th is really good as well. Perfect for eating after getting random cap from Ace hardware.

Why is everything stripped on this damn car! It is an M6x1.0, no Jeremy Clarkson "POWAHHHH" **** needed!

*deep breath* OK I'm good, after retapping it and using blue loctite and getting the "credit card gap" I just need to wire it into the main harness now.

Uhhhh . . . maybe because everything has been disassembled, brutally cleaned and reassembled about 15 times?

Gah! Jeff! Hurry up on this stuff. I am out of pages to read now. Only took me 5 days of free time....

The car looks amazing by the way. Making me reget buying a car with a carptastic macco job even more (not even wet sanding will help this paint job...).

I wish I could make the UPS man go faster, but I am literally waiting on 4 injector seals before I can do much else.
