Well, we've got snow. Build season has arived in the North West. I've been keeping an eye out for some PR Cub gear struts and have had no luck, so I decided to give building my own a shot. I downloaded an image from the larger Hanger 9 gear and don't think it will be too tricky. I ordered up some 3/4" aluminum round bar, and some 1/4" rod. The metal showed up yesterday, so I got started on the shock bodies. They didn't turn out too bad. I may polish them up a bit more for the final product.

Let me know if you need anything milled.

Snow? I don't do snow. Even once every few years here is too much.

Yeah you have a bunch of idiots down there with you who don't understand that those few times it does snow they gotta slow the F down on the roads. Don't seem to understand that snow is slippery.

It's the ice that forms regularly under the snow that causes the most problems. Our 'Snowpocalpse' a few years ago was actually ice (2") under a dusting of snow.
 
Thanks David,
I sure will get with you if I need some mill work. I appreciate that!

We also get idiots on our roads. Usually from out of state. I don't think they have the common sense to slow down and take cruise control off. They cause a lot of accidents in my area, even some fatalities.
