    i was testing out a rebuild, and skimped on a few screws...

    well, it grabbed my pants the first time.

    leaves a nice herringbone pattern :)

    then i had to do a quick run to the local P.O.

    and it grabbed more than my pants!


    poke it till it bleeds! thats my attitude!

    oh well, a week later and it still hasnt developed any pus :( i shoulda poked it harder!

    now who was it that said that i said that i am the only one here with brains? :jester:

    cus sometimes...sometimes im seriously deficient!!!!

    oh. i use peroxide. forget about using all them silly "anti-bacterial" chemicals! theyre simply POISON!

    and silver is also beneficial.

    If you want to see the gears, machine out an area for a plexiglass window. I never understood why people would run without the gear cover, the first time I saw someone do it I immediately could tell how unsafe it was.

    Open gears suck up much more destructive things than your pants too, any sand or dirt or rocks that get thrown that direction will wreck those teeth

    I can understand lazy, that's why I still don't have functioning brake lights. I'm talking more about those people who post finished build pics without gear covers, that sort of thing is just asking for some damage.
