Brown marmorated stink bug - Wikipedia
It's been like, 12 degrees these past few days with the wind howling. I have to go out and clear about 6" of snow this morning. So in all that these verdammit little bugs pop up inside the house. They just dote along and despite the name don't actually stink, not like a bombardier beetle. Their evolutionary niche is that of a bag of potato chips - crunchy and tasty snacks to something but otherwise useless. Wiki says wasps are their primary predator. Oh good, that's what I needed to hear.
So we'll get a few of them and then they go away. Endless amusement for the cats. This time around we've been calling them Prince Harry I .... IV and so on but I pointed out this morning that isn't appropriate any more. So meet Mr.Markle I.
Cool looking little bastard. This is an action photo, such as they get with these things.
If it weren't inside my house I'd leave it alone.
Tryin to get a little done to the ol house. And learning me some drywall, finished the 1st coat.
We have those damn stink bugs around here too and also another pest that doesn't belong, the Asian Lady Beetle...They look like the Ladybugs common to the US but they are not the same and the Asian variety are more aggressive and bite!...
when it comes to the art drywall either you got it or you don't.
looks like you got it !
thanks. that damn long joint along the ceiling is pissing me off, Ive rigged me up a good light to shine down the length of it at ceiling height. i was going to get one from lowes but i just taped my drop light to a pole and taped that to an old shoe rack its lightweight and easy to move. i have to do alot of sanding to get it even so the light dont play havik along that joint that i butted up wrong i think, the next room i do will be the same size think i`ll hang the ceiling differnt where its staggered like brick and get away from that long seam in the middle . i think where i`m messing up is how i hang the rock, which would make my mudding alot easier i`d like to be able to do it without any sanding but..
I've been getting a lot of mileage out of plain old painter's clamp lamps and really bright led bulbs.
This is one of those things where less is more. You work on a construction site and see those guys that casually stroll around on aluminum stilts and only apply the bare minimum needed so there's almost no sanding. Swine. With me, it's always something like Roy Neary screwing around with his mashed potatoes.
The underside of robot B9?
Not exactly, although at one point it did look like laundry day on the Jupiter 2.
These old C3s have major heat issues. Not overheating but transferring all that engine heat into the passenger compartment. You could put some ingredients in a plastic bag, throw them at your feet and take a ride. A short time later you'll have hot soup or maybe a cupcake like a Barbie oven. Hot.
So after much cleaning, degreasing, scraping, wire wheeling and painting I have it together, tucked up tight and I think it's done. It's the stuff behind and around the white and grey shields. It isn't intended to be done with the engine and transmission in place but I don't have any choice here and believe me, it wasn't easy. Crawl under your car and wrap your arms lovingly around the transmission and hug it to your chest. Repeatedly. Lots of sharp little clips in there to contend with in a confined space. I used factory repro insulation and supplemented it with an aftermarket radiant barrier. And ibuprofen.
