@  00GrcyGtr : (22 May 2016 - 11:01 AM) I do Facebook for Business and friends, but I have most the info my friends might post on a "review first" setting.
It's helped my business, I get from 30 to 90 views a day. I also have a professional Houzz profile, it too, has helped business, and both a free.
FB is nice as I have friends all over the world, racers, gamers, and most my newer racing friends I met online in racing SIMS, that I helped write or develop mods to for various types of racing and 100's of tracks.
@  monte0 : (22 May 2016 - 03:53 AM) Agree, facebook isn't as good as the forums.
@  tippietoejoe : (21 May 2016 - 10:13 PM) I dont do facebook either, I like staying off the grid. but it is crazy how so many jobs rely on a social media site that creates so many issues within social groups.
@  00GrcyGtr : (20 May 2016 - 08:41 PM) Sup Ya"ll, Just posted a wheel question, any thoughts?

@  00GrcyGtr : (20 April 2016 - 09:38 PM) I always seem to have several T40 bits, they are used in many other applications also.
If I seen any shine on the nug tips, I pitch, but I have noticed as you mention, the rounding of the ends of those.
I hit the end with a tool and flatten it out, they work for a few more jobs.
Maybe that's why I seem to have so many?
@  tippietoejoe : (14 April 2016 - 08:04 AM) Seems that my T40 bit was not truly flat on the end and thus not fitting all the way into the bolt. With a new T40 I was able to remove the bolts.....so to answer my own question a T40 is the size and just make sure the end of the bit it completely flat.
@  tippietoejoe : (12 April 2016 - 09:12 PM) Does anyone know the torx bit size of the SC snout bolt?...I have a t40 it was too small and a t45 is too large. I searched lowes and advance auto and they only sell t40 t45 t50. thanks guys
@  gojo83 : (08 April 2016 - 04:09 AM) Talked to the body guy buddy of mine today 90ish % of the key damage will literally buff out he said there is only about maybe 1-1.5 inches of actual deep damage
@  marcleach75 : (28 March 2016 - 09:31 PM) Vandals galore in that neighborhood. Crappy.

OK need a conformation here.
This happens irregularly. No correlation to hitting bumps or any thing else.

On the dash, I'll get the full "Christmas lights", reset the gages and the Ding, ding, ding..... Then back to normal. Car stays running. ( crosses fingers as panic sets in )

It's just started doing this, this past week, Maybe once or twice a day.

Bad Battery connection?
or.
Ignition switch / key tumbler?

I don't remember which.

Who has "fixed this" Ign. switch by spraying contact/Maf cleaner in there?

Exactly what mine did when the ignition switch went out. I have not done the cleaning myself (just the replacement), but there is at least one good article here (or a link to clubgp) that goes through the clean up routine.
I have taken one apart though, and will say that you do need to take care. Even though the parts are all relatively large (as compared to a watch?), but are finicky enough that you would want to have steady hands and a good memory for where they all go. Or take pictures as you go.

But the symptom is definitely the same as my switch. It really would rear up when I would use the turn signal switch, and only killed the engine after it had been doing it for a few weeks.
On the other hand, my '03 LS gave no prior warning when it went out and just literally died out of the blue going down the freeway. Oddly enough, when the GS finally gave out I was going down the freeway too. I guess it just "knows" when you're in an awkward spot.

Did this happen before you did your extensive engine work? I would check all my grounds and power feeds before I condemn an ignition switch.
