My Projects

Rebuilt 3100 Engine

Rebuilt 3100 Engine

A freshly rebuilt engine, since rebuilding the existing one would have cost about $900, and this rebuilt engine ran about $1200.

Auto-Dimming Rear-View Mirror

Auto-Dimming Rear-View Mirror

I got this mirror from a junkyard Cadillac Eldorado.

Horn

Horn

Horn from a 1998 Saturn SL1 that was in the Junkyard. I'm hoping it's a different note than the horn I have now.

The Trophy Shot

The Trophy Shot

A picture of me, holding the steering column high after a fight to remove it. We got this tilt steering column since my red Corsica had no tilt steering, and no cruise control. The tilt steering columns also come with the cruise control controls on the turn signal stalk.

Removing the Uhaul Hitch

Removing the Uhaul Hitch

Me, removing a Class 2 UHaul hitch from a Chevy Corsica in the U-Pull-It yard, to put on my Red 1996.

Sharp LQ13X02C

Ok, this 13" Sharp TFT LCD screen with XGA (1024x768) resolution was used in some Dell and NEC laptops, including the Dell Latitude CPi D266XT.

Various Meters

Various Meters

Again, at the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, I got a grab-bag of meters.

Breadboards and Un-Etched PCBs

Breadboards and Un-Etched PCBs

While at the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, I picked up a bunch of breadboards and unetched PCBs from a goodie-bag dealer (one with little bags of misc parts for a set price).

LED Bargraphs

LED Bargraphs

While at the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, I picked up three of these LED bargraph guys. I haven't tested yet to see what color they are, but that will come in time.

3/$2 isn't bad, if I can say so myself. 

RAC Polo Shirt

RAC Polo Shirt

Well, I went to the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, and one of the things I did there was renew my RAC membership, and buy this sleek Radio Amateurs of Canada polo shirt.
