I know! You should come visit us one day (maybe Sunday after we arrive since we'll just be hanging out that day). If plans work out, we'll be arriving Sunday, July 24 and leaving Saturday, July 30 and staying at a marina/campground on Nolin Lake. 

These are our tentative plans:

Sunday:  arrive, check in, check out the cabin, get groceries, relax
Monday:  Caves
Tuesday:  Caves
Wednesday:   Beech Bend & Splash Lagoon
Thursday:  ?  
Friday:  Rent a boat and hang out on Nolin Lake
Saturday:  Check out and head back, maybe take a detour to stop by Big Head's Bait Shop

So, it has a DX sensor? Dang. If I was still shooting on the regular, I might buy one. I never could pul the trigger on a full-frame sensor model. Replacing lenses would have made the upgrade too pricey.

Looking forward to seeing your photos.

I've bought mine 30 years ago for about $600 and then did the 16.5 upgrade to it. I learned how to replace the velour lips on the pickup myself so I didn't have to buy them anymore. A roll of velour from Mal-Wart for $5 lasts a lifetime. 
For now mine is back in its box until I get my stereo room set back up.



 Man. You should have gone with the 220 volt model...

I bought some of the parts to build a DIY Ultrasonic cleaner and one of these years I may even build it.

 
I talked to a rep where I got it and he says its half as loud as the 16.5.

I've seen some demo videos of ultra sonic cleaners and the only real problem for a DIY is getting the right size tank.  For all the years I've used the ultra sonic cleaner at work to clean eye glasses, nothing loosens up stuff like an ultra sonic cleaner.  You can watch the body oils and what not come off the frames like streams of smoke.  Having said that, I would still use the VPI afterwards (since you already have it) for a clean rinse with distilled water just to get rid of what comes with the record when you take it out of the tank.

You were the one who put me over the top for a VPI.  I figured I might as well go for broke and get the Cyclone and be done with it.  The plan is to clean them up, rip them for an archive level take in 16 bit wav files and put them up for sale on the discogs website.  

I also got some GRUV GLIDE after extensive research, to treat the records after cleaning, before playing.  I'll letcha know how it works.  Stuff costs $40 bucks, but if it works, its worth it, just for the health of the stylus if nothing else.  I hope...

Anyway, I'm stoked !!!!

When I see "spin" and "buzz" in the same sentence it brings back memories of my early,amateur drinking days.There was a lot of vomit involved so no,no you cannot take my mattress for a spin.If I ever start drinking again I might have to start from scratch with zero tolerance,so if I do I'll probably vomit on the mattress myself.In that case you would be welcome to it.

My new to me 1993 Ford Ranger!  Got it for a steal from a mechanic who has had it since 1994 so it has essentially only had one owner who babied it.  Because he was an OTR trucker it only has 102k miles on it; everything is manual; transmission, door windows, everything.  Damn thing looks like it was in a time capsule.

I found a manual-trans S-type V6 on Craigslist last week.  I'm tempted; it could be my kind of trouble.

My entry in this thread has calmed down my new-car jones, though.  I've put 2,000 miles on the 998 since buying it, and it has been pretty good to me.  Strapping a bunch of camping gear onto the back seems to have broken the circuit board in the Chinese LED tail light that was in it, so I put a factory tail light back in its place.  This bike isn't supposed to carry camping gear anyway.  Hell, this bike isn't supposed to carry your cell phone and wallet, it's designed for someone else to carry that stuff for you while she times your laps from the pit wall. 

(*) Everything is better with an LS swap.  One of my best friends just got a brand-new Z06 Corvette, the 650-hp supercharged computer-on-wheels that will roughly match a $300,000 McLaren around a race track, and he said about it something you will never hear anybody else say about their Corvette:  "It's pretty fast, it ought to keep me entertained until I get that Miata finished."

So now I'd like to build a Miata something like his Miata.

Yes there is an LC swap option for the Jag and even a 8 speed manual can be fitted as the XK's were auto trans only the one thing I really hate about the car. But its simply not worth it to me and the fact I can't afford it.
They finally went to metal tensioners in 2002 and the fix on the older ones is to replace the tensioners with the metal ones. I already bought all the parts because I am 90% sure my car has the plastic one still. When the car had 57k miles and still under warranty the tensioner failed and destroyed the engine and Jag ate it and put in a new engine so it has only 44k miles on it now. That was in 2002 but the replacement engine likely still has plastic tensioners. My problem is I have no place to work on it. The 4.2 can't be directly swapped because they changed all the electronics and harnesses and it would be more trouble than its worth.
The S type with the V6 manual would be cool. I passed on an X type AWD with a manual trans last month and went with the SAAB instead as it will be easier and cheaper to maintain and I am on disability pay and can't afford 2 money pits at once.
