    Really Trying Hard
  1. I just heard about this on ADV, I am sorry to hear of his passing.
  2. Is this the Campo down by the border south of the 8?
  3. I have a 3500psi pressure washer you can try worse case....
  4. Only had ADV gear so wore that since its a close second 🙃
  5. I did go inside but since not sure whom was whom stood at counter for bout 10 min got a cold drink then wandered around outside to look at bikes (sic) oh well next time I guess
  6. Got there and hung round till 730 lots of harleys only three flat trackers most people were inside drinking not my cup o tea
  7. Soda will be the least abrasive of any media blasting material of course if you find a place local the does it would make sense to bring the wheels there and see how it looks post blast since it doesnt appear chrome is an issue you could then powder coat if you wanted afterwards
  8. Depends do you want to restore in place or fully disssemble the wheel that makes a diff in what you can do wd40 will break down the adhesive without being too aggressive goo b gone works as well too
  9. Cant be moved front end has to be apart to weld otherwise you melt all the bushings and balljoints which would be a bad thing but appreciated anyways
  10. Thanks for the replies, I never got notice they were there until now. The vehicle cant be moved so welder has to come to it, I will do it myself worse case just will have to run a few hours of practice beads if need be. Hoping can con Wildwood into lending a hand...I have beer...
  11. I am in Escondido. I have the welder and will be running 70s6 solid wire with gas. Just not skilled enough for this kind of work with a Mig. Wish I could tig it.
  12. I have to weld the sleeves into my front dana 30 but due to the conditions cant use my tig welder. I am looking for someone that is experienced enough in mig to do the job if certified even better we are talking about 6 plug welds the two full circumference welds on the ends. Material is 1/4" thick I have the machine set up with 70/s6 035 wire and the machine itself can do 3/8 single pass so it is more than adequate for the job. ???anyone??? If it could be tig welded this would he a no brainer....
  13. Cycle gear here in Escondido charged me 20 to balance the tires, I installed them myself. The installation is never really the issue it is the balancing that poses the problem. Dunno bout changing street tires will have to try that next time on the Strom. Up in LA the shop there charged 30 to R&R and balance but you disposed of the old time. Just my .02
  14. Well maybe the next ride will be 990 teritory up through big bear etc. get back into my old stomping grounds. Would have to be a small group itherwise you end up with huge gaps due to the dust this time of year. ☚ī¸
  15. Love the yellow leds makes it easy to find myself in pictures. 😂😂
