Latest post of the previous page:

Welding is okay once you have the settings correct, problem is that with varying metal thicknesses it is a constant challenge. I've done "crude" welding before, structurally okay but not pretty, now have to learn pretty, especially on the fenders. Hopefully will be fine, won't be any worse than the "professional" who welded on Fatboy...

Good God, you could down a case of Genny and a couple of Jack Daniels shots, snort a few lines for a pick-me-up, pop a few pills and mainline some meth, spin in circles with your forehead pressed on a baseball bat, puke, slam down several expressos and totally do a better job.

True, maybe we'll leave the Genny off the list however. Screamers (used to be green can vs. the Red Eye) were never good to me when I was a teenager, although I understand that the current generation believes it is a "new" craft beer, go figure.

Fastbacks, this is about Fastbacks, but yeah no I would never drink that stuff. Heineken, good nuff for a youngster, today, in a pinch, I'll do Dos Equis. Fastbacks.
