    Shotgun side rocker panel had some rust https://imgur.com/d2btKCD I made new panel using wise grips and angle grinder https://imgur.com/nGMqlPv New rocker panel welded https://imgur.com/J0UQJyP Painted with primer using spray gun https://imgur.com/8FighBl It turned out pretty good.

    I had to also fix driver's side rocker panel. It was even worse https://imgur.com/R7a1guN

    Both frame rails were almost cut in half https://imgur.com/lsd91DZ So I had to make some reinforcements https://imgur.com/wQV8myL

      You seem to be proud of your country.  :)

  3. Oh dog, I chipped about 1/5 of one of my back tooth when eating Karelian pie this morning. :kdR94: How is this even possible? Karelian pie is softer than the food at Mc Donalds.

    I didn't even realise it was part of my own tooth until I had thrown it in the trash bin and started wondering how it got into my food.

      My thoughts exactly. I kinda knew my teeth are not in that good shape but I didn't know it was this bad. Let's see how expensive this will get.:doublefacehoof:

      The free public healthcare only charged 59€ to repair my tooth. Private sector price would have been around 180€ so I saved about 120€. Then again I paid over 6k€ in taxes last year and this is the only thing I got in return. :flutterrage: At least the service was 6/5.

  4. Oh dog, what have I done again. But if I fall asleep this instant I still get to sleep 4 hours.

  5. "If you're looking for self-help, why would you read a book written by somebody else? That's not self-help, that's help. There's no such thing as self-help, if you did it yourself, you didn't need help. You did it yourself." Funniest thing I have heard all week and also so true.


  6. It's Mayday eve and half of the city is getting drunk myself included.:awesomecheer: Tomorrow I'm going to get myself some vendace for dinner and buy myself something highly unnecceccary crap as per my tradition.

  7. 30 laps around the Sun and counting. I'm starting to feel a bit old...ish. :happy_twi: Now it would be great to look back and think of all those great things I have accomplished so far. Or at least should have. Well, let's also be realistic and keep our focus on the future, shall we.

  8. A russian friend of mine suggested a hemp based drug for me. Let's see how this works out. I should be able to fall asleep more easily and shit. I have high hopes for this stuff.:gleepony:

  9. Ate first time in my life in Taco Bell. :awesomedash: I can recommend it to all you, who live in Sweden. Oh, silly me. I forgot there's not a single Taco Bell in Sweden. :ajlol:

  10. Bought some mac & cheese from Lidl today and noticed that the Swedish instructions had a hilarious typo. "Använd inte en minigun eller ugns grillfunktion!" (do not use a minigun or grill function of your oven). Now I have this image in my head of your average Swede having a minigun right next to his toaster. :haha:

  11. Driving to work felt like an adventure. Near 0 Celsius weather, lots of snow on the road and I got really poor summer tires under my ride, what can possibly go wrong. The first few hundred meters gave somewhat false sense of safety but when the first bigger intersection was nearing and I tried to apply brakes my car just kept sliding like a sled and didn't stop until I was in the middle of the intersection. Nothing bad happened but someone saw me having troubles controlling my vehicle which kind of made me wish I had been hit by a bus. The rest of the commute went pretty well (and slowly) but I had to concentrate on the driving so badly that I almost couldn't finish my take-away coffee. :nnghaloo:

      yesterday was fall and today winter xD....i was walking back to hotel (I was watching Cats musical...btw it was good!) and I almost fell...i should probably change my bikes wheels when I get home....

  12. Happy birthday to me! :partycannon: Unlike for christmas, I got some presents this time. The first one was a free shot given by my favourite pub and the other one is going to be some surprise gift worth 5-10 € from my mobile service provider. Not sure if my life is miserable or just character building.:haha:

      happy birthday

  13. Happy independence day Finland! :sweetieyes: Your freedom is something no commie coutry is going to steal from you. I really do appreciate all those brave souls who fought for it.

  14. Happy midsummer to y'all! Let's all celebrate the nightless night.

  15. Have I ever tell you how awesome bicycles are? Well, they are. You can ride one even when you're drunk. How cool (and exploitable) is that? To be honest I was shocked to find my bike where I left it. I mean it's been over a year since I last used it and this suburb I live in is notorious for getting your bike stolen if you leave it unsupervised for 5 minutes. :sadpie:

      Well FML! My bicycle has been stolen.:notimpressed:

  16. Have you ever spent 1300 € and got nothing in return? I just did. Dang these retirement allowance payments. :anger:

      wow what a rip off

  17. Heard a moment ago that when your are balding you should not call it bald but instead "sex machine's solar cell". :ajlol:Oh gosh, I'm still laughing at this.

  18. I finally got myself a "pork beef MC" T-shirt after years of waiting. I'm so happy. I'll share a photo of it with y'all when I get home. :awesomedash:

  19. I graduated today. :awesomedash: I'm a bachelor of engineering. "Trust me, I'm an engineer" has a new meaning from now onwards.

      Thank you. You're welcome.:happybonbon:

  20. I hang a US flag on my wall today. Now my appartmet smells like freedom. :happy_twi:

  21. I heard that you should spend the Christmas with the ones that you love. Well, I spent my Christmas doing rust repairs on my car. Does that count? I hope so. I don't want be a weirdo. :pwease:

      It could be tolerable if you weren't into ponies too emote.RDlaugh.png

  22. I really love honest and outspoken people. It really warms my dead black heart to hear the personnel at my local pub to literally shout "dear customers, now it's the time when you should get the fuck out of here". :happybonbon: Such a simple yet efficient advise.

    1. Leonbrony17

      Leonbrony17

      I agree. If there's a harsh truth to be said, it must be said.

  23. I was at a swap meet today and couldn't find brake dust shields for my car, so I bought this https://i.imgur.com/mK94TD5.jpg It's a unicorn balloon ball which is supposed to be inflated to around 1 foot in diameter but IMO it looks better this way (kinda lazy and exhausted just like me) and it also takes up less space. :gleepony:

  24. I was thinking that maybe I shouldn't go to bar alone anymore.:ponder: There's some really strange folks creeping around. "So you're telling me you have only drank beer? But why are your pupils so large" Well, my eyes are pretty sensitive to light, I don't do drugs if that's what you meant. "Why don't we go to my place ? I got some booze there?" No thanks. I have to wake up to morrow to do some stuff (which I cannot do if I'm not alive). Thanks anyway, but hell no. I might have mentioned this guy before? I'm not sure if he's looking fore a friend or his next victim. So, slightly inconvenient but otherwise pretty relaxing and normal Friday night.

  25. It's been surprisingly relaxing week. So far 16 hours of sleep and 6 liters of beer, which gives me a B/S ratio of .375. :sweetieyes:
