Not a heap of progress yet, mostly just working out wiring. This is where i wanted to mount the battery but its quite difficult to reach if it needs to be jumpstarted. Could I possibly put some remote terminals up higher? I'm thinking about using little strips of sheet metal to secure cables and wires so I dont need to weld or drill into anything or buy little plastic ones. Also this is how i have to get into the back of the ute. Blanket down, no shoes or belt buckles hahaha
has your cholesterol always been high? some people just make a lot of cholesterol.
i've watched a couple of doco's lately on it by Michael Mosley, and My take is if your "good" cholesterol is high it's good, as it breaks down the bad cholesterol.. try having more fish and olive oil, avocado etc..
My cholesterol is usually always fine(was high when i was 108kgs though) and i still eat plenty of the "bad stuff" (bacon .. nom nom nom)
Just had my yearly checkup at the doctor's. Good news and bad, I guess.
Bad news is my cholesterol count is still too high, which is annoying because I don't really tend to eat a lot of fatty foods. I've only just paid off my last holiday (and have a new one to pay off, heh), which means I'm not flush with funds, so I don't eat a lot of take-away. I don't eat a lot of fried eggs and bacon or other greasy stuff either, so that's got me worried. I am carrying a few extra pounds with me though, so I suspect that will drop the more weight I lose. The other odd thing was above-average blood iron - I'm pale and have red(dish) hair, I've been battling with anaemia all my teenage life - so to hear that was quite surprising. It's not like I'm eating steak every week (at that price?), so again, baffling.
The good news is I've finally dropped under the 100kg mark, for the first time since I returned to the country 3.5 years ago. I borrowed my mum's scales again for the first time in a month or so and was proud to see the needle stop swinging at 97kg. My target is 95, and then want to edge towards 90kg - I'll be happy there - but one thing at a time.
I'm in IT, so I spend a lot of my time sitting at desks and staring into screens. For the last year, I've been eating lunch at my desk working and spending my 30min break-time simply walking around the factory grounds: I can do two laps of the site, and up to the main highway and back - a total of 3,3km my phone app tells me - in that time, and lately I've just broken the 29min mark. Just a simple 3km walk 5 days a week allowed me to drop under the 100kg mark! Took a while, but I got there!
Thankfully I'm quite tall, so I can hide the extra weight a little better than most shorter people. Once I can drop a few more pounds and build up a little stamina, I'll be happy.
That fucker doubles as a circular saw blade
Re: three bolts vs single nylon
I imagine it was to reduce machining operations to one thread-cutting action. Ditto the nylon socket, being molded as is needs no machining. Bean counters won out on that.

Was more or less done in sections divided up by the mig tacks. I did weld a couple of sectors without stopping, no ill effects or difference that I could tell.
Yeah I needed to clean and grind the electrode about 3-4 times I think. Whole deal took about 2 hours but I'm not exactly sure when I started welding proper.
Edit: by 2hrs I mean that's how long from when I was ready to fit the trimmed panel ..I think, I can't actually remember lol
