My new engine stand showed up today. They offered a plastic drip pan for the base so I bought it too. Sadly their info was wrong and it doesn't not fit as pictured. I will send that back.

The new stand is nice and my motor will be back on it this weekend. Need to pull everything out to finish welding everything. Folds up for easy storage too. Has a 1000 lb rating. 2 grease zeros to grease the gears and shaft.

Cool,too bad the drip pan was a no go.

NICE FIND!
Havent hit his site in a while.. Noticed a couple guys on the MS forum building some dashes for Tunerstudio, but that is top notch. I will stick with analog needles is the car for now, not that I pay much attention to them anyway lol

Ya, it is actually a nice drip pan but at $80 i don't want to cut it up. The center angled support is what interferes. Would need to cut an additional 6" out of the center to clear that brace. I'm not willing to simply remove the brace either.

Really like the touch screen tablet with large display !! I know this can be done with shadow dash on a tablet but not quite as stream lined. I am not 9verly fond of the price tag nor do I need to be able to change tables via the display......damn nice feature but unessacary for my application. I really like it though. I read what little info they offer on both the $699 and $999 12.3" models. Standard and pro models and the pro states fuel gauge but standard doesn't. The instruction manual states there 8s an analog sensor with its own harness needed for the fuel gauge function. So this should be possible to add directly to my ms3 ecu and display on a tablet.

Really like the GPS function too

I had high hopes but by end of day sun , I knew it wouldn't make the trip.


Do you know the name of the company that sells the ceramic windshields?

Optic Armor is who i got mine from.  It is some propietary coating . I don't know what but it is tough. Supposed to be best on market. It will scratch but not with cleaning. They actually recommend paper towels and non amonia glass cleaner. I use Invisible Glass.

They have 1/8, 3/16 and 1/4. I used 3/16 but wish i had gone 1/4". At about 80 it begins pushing in..

I was hoping they offered on for a Baja bug but don't see it. Now the one they offer for the  1993 mustang is interesting. If its just coated plex or lexsand then I can cut and shape it to fit.

Luckily I have access to a list of windshield dimensions. They are of the block size rather then the detailed size but that what I need anyway. I know a 1973 super beetle windshield will fit.
