I took the car to Advance Auto right after the "check engine" light came on and had them check the error code on their little plug in diagnostic and the code said it was a bad TPS. I haven't checked the voltage on the original. ...

automotive question... - BFIV
Gotta replace the throttle position sensor on Mama BFIV's Outback tomorrow. If I position the replacement TPS in the same exact position as the original, is it still necessary to adjust the new TPS with the voltage meter? I don't have a volt meter, but I could borrow one, I guess. TIA!...

Here's to ya, Smack! - BFIV
While looking at the national weather map, I saw a little community with the name of Smackover, Arkansas. I guess it speaks to the mindset of the OB members, mine at least, that I immediately thought of SmackOverHawg. Always kind of wondered to what his identity here referred, Now I know! I've a...

[quote]I prefer skin mounts. Most replicas I've seen look like replicas.[/quote] Not tryin to split hairs here, but some taxidermists, me included, do not consider a replica to be true taxidermy. Replicas are an art form, like painting and sculpting. There is no "taxidermy" involved. The term ...

re: Proper steps to take for getting a fish mounted? - BFIV
Do NOT wrap your fish in newspaper or any other kind of paper! Any kind of paper acts as a "wick" and will cause the moisture to be drawn out of the fragile fins, head, and gill area. Instead...press the fins tightly to the body of your fish and wrap (several wraps) the whole fish in Saran Wrap or ...
