    Made video clips of grooving the 42\'s and weld on frame repair today....

    My buddy and I did the weld on frame repair thing to my K5 and grooved my 42's today. We made clips of both. We almost died while doing the tires....My "Do not do this at home" commentary at the beginning of the grooving clip, is no joke. When I lit the torch, I just turned on the propane valve and used the propane heater to light it. (Don't try that- stoooopid) What I didn't know was that it blew out the flame at the heating element and left a small flame burning in the the tubes behind the heating element, by the time I was done preheating the tire, it was red hot back there.. Lesson learned. We got lucky that it didn't blow up. Watch the video and you'll figure it out. Since it was super cold outside and the tires were really hard, we used the propane blow torch to heat them up so they'd be easier to groove. Both clips are pretty big downloads- the frame repair one is 80+ MB and the tire grooving one is 40+ mb.

    Thanks for the compliment. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif My buddy was kinda skeptical of the grooving thing- Told me afterwards that at first he thought it was gonna be kinda lame. After he saw one done, and got to do some grooving himself, he was impressed. Took about half hour for the first one, then after we figured out it was faster to heat the tires, probably 20-25 minutes ea for the last three. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    lol, Yeah, I didn't click the "stop capture" button soon enough- Got alittle bit of Jasons truck at the end. lol!

    As for the tire humping, I paid ALOT of $$$ for those tires and haven't been able to wheel them yet, might as well get some use out of them. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    The frame repair one was edited down alot. You would have gone mad listening to how many times I hit the thing with a hammer, somewhere close to 200. Those things fit like $hit. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I know you didn't and wouldn't put it on there but that is what happened. I really have no idea what happened. It looked like a good video ( the welding section ) /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
