Worked at Holley carb as a tech and got to meet many of the greats. Worked at McCord gasket and got to be in with NASCAR. Worked at GM as a dyno tech on prototype engines. Finally worked as a draftsperson/checker at a leading bolt manufacturer. I sure enjoy seeing what all of you do for income.
Great. It sounds like you had an interesting career with all the different stuff you have done. That is awesome. Enjoy retirement. What do you like to do now?

I used to take both of our greatnephews to preschool and we really bonded. Before that we did animal rescue. Even before that I would take care of my mom n law as the Alzheimers took her. Now I have absolutely NO responsibilities what so ever. We have an exercise section in the basement where I store all the parts for my truck I order. When itz above 55-60 I'm usually in the garage working on some project. The projects have gotten to the point I will have to be fabricating parts to finish things so I bought a couple of machines for that. I want to use a longer pan hard bar on the 4 link and put a pair of triple adjustable coilovers in the front like I have in the rear. Even a roll cage comes to mind. I don't like the links in the 4 link so I'll be welding up a custom set. Gotta install the headers and the Mallory capacitive discharge ignition. Saving up to build another engine also. I learned enuff at Holley carb to do my own tuning on anything so when the engine is done that will be another project. EFI isn't as ez as a carb's fuel curve but it iz challenging.
2002 5.4L 4wd F-150 FX4
4.88 gears, trans shift kit, 4 link/triple adj coilovers are installed
Hawk/Performance Friction pads w/EBC rotors and stainless steel hoses. LiveWireIS tuned by myself w/SCT Pro Racer Package. and now for my next trick...twin turbos piece by piece.
YOU GOT TALENT. Those are nice looking welds. Wish I had the chance to tig at work more often.
thanks, the very first pic isn't me, it's a friend. But all the others are mine. Yah I mainly use Tig welding but a lot of 7018 stick rod also. I'm still working on it tho. I'm left handed but as you can see in the 3rd pic I'm using my right, gotta get it to loosen up
I've worked at the dpw in my town 3 of the past 4 summers. Started out in sanitation then was a carpenters helper somewhere else, back at dpw I was roads dept which was pretty good then this past summer I was buildings and grounds. The last one was probably one of the best even if all I did was weed whack for 8 hrs a day lol but the best was when I got to use the machines like these. One of the best jobs I've had. Kinda funny my boots were green after a week or two pictures but now they're pretty much black after the summer.
