    Can't really see the mount in the pictures. Is it attached to the windshield frame or do you have something run across from the cage in both sides?

    It's attached to the windshield frame with 2 steel nutserts, with 1\4" hardware. The brackets are some very hard 3\16 thick ones I had sitting around. I removed the CB upper housing, drilled, and installed some carriage machine screws from the inside. Very solid mounting, very little wiggle.

    Last week I had the Rubi towed to a friend's shop after it went into limp mode on my way home from fishing.
    It's only been 4 or 5 years since I did a bunch of work to the transmission. So here I am needing another valve body and solenoid pack replaced. Thankfully my insurance covers towing, but the diagnosis cost me $100, parts were around $350. Now the fun part is my wife's JKU cut off in the middle of traffic Thursday afternoon with the battery dead. Towing covered by insurance, but the battery wouldn't charge, so I had my son put a new $100 battery in it. Fired it up, and instantly find an alternator that's failed. With a discount I paid $175 for the alternator.
    I've basically spent $750 in repairs over the past week!
    So, What did I do to my Jeep today?
    I sat in it and cried!!!!

    Okay, this really isn't "my rig" but s few of you freaks will appreciate what I have done with my cast iron cookware.

    Many years ago, cast iron foundries would polish the cooking surface, leaving a smooth surface to develop a gorgeous and functional patina. Now, they skip this step, leaving the surface still rough from sand-casting. I have a pan that is so rough, the burrs catch on the paper towels when I would wipe it down and leave little burt bits of paper towel for my food.

    Naturally, being the weirdo I am, I decided to do something about it...

    Pic 1: First, I ran the pans in the oven on the self-clean cycle to burn everything off. This will remove the seasoning, bits of food, pretty much everything that isn't iron. The picture is after the oven's cleaming cycle burnt everything off and left a dull gray. Please note the rough finish from sand-casting.

    Pic 2: I took an angle grinder and a 60 grit flap-wheel to smooth out the rough finish. I then used a 120 grit flap-wheel to finish out the surface. Please note I only did this on the cooking surface. I was thinking about finishing it with 220 grit on an orbital, but my orbital is too big and awkward to do it.

    Pic 3: I used the grill on the back porch to season the pans. I used Crisco and put it on the grill at 450-500 degrees for 30 minutes. I would take the first two pans out and load the next two on for 30 minutes. I cycled this back-and-forth for about 5 times, with a final cycle of 1 hour to finish it off.

    They are way smoother than before.

    I just sent Brooks a message the other day about some cast iron I have.
    We were talking about it at the back roads trip. I have a pot with a griddle lid. My nephew has them at the moment blasting them clean for me. I'll end up using a 500 grit polishing disc on my grinder to get my cook surface to a smooth finish.

    Brakes on the 4Runner hit the wear indicators last night randomly. Upgraded to the bigger Tundra setup. Surprisingly easy to change out. Much better performance.

    Almost done supervising mini me installing his CB.
    Meanwhile, iremoved all the old cracked insulation from my 4' antenna. It's about 45yrs old, and was my grandads. Made by Long Ranger Communication Accessories. Very good performing antenna still. I found some lavender heat shrink on Amazon, so my wife has a custom lavender 4' antenna.
    (I thought it was going to be purple.)
