Starting a new blog!

Sup guys,

It has been a while! I figured I check in with you guys to let you know how I've been. Aside from moving into an awesome new house with a friend of mine, I've been busy modding my car and acquiring the tools needed to do so. My subwoofer mod has been progressing slowly and steadily, as I've finally finished the enclosure!


It turned out great in the end! You can find the full write-up here. I'm about to do the wiring, but I just bought a spoiler, so I'm gathering the parts needed for this project first.

Finally an update!

Sup guys,

Happy holidays to you all! I have been semi hard at work recently on a few new projects, and I return from the ashes with an update for you guys. First off, I picked up a couple of goodies through some online Black Friday sales. Being a computer guy, I have been building my own PCs since I could afford my own. I snagged a couple of nice deals on a solid state hard drive (Samsung 840 Evo 250GB) and a new video card (Sapphire Dual-X Radeon R9 280). My current computer was initially put together three years ago, so it's starting to show its age. After trying to run Metro 2033 on the lowest settings with DirectX 11, I realized that my old video card (Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770) was not going to cut it any more. Thanks to Black Friday, I'm extremely happy with my updated setup--here are some pictures:

More after the jump!

30,000 views and beyond!

Sup people,

Wow--brings back memories!
As unbelievable as it seems, I have hit 30,000 views! I guess people really do care about this esoteric little hobby. Though I've only been on board for a little over two years, I've seen blasters evolve in the craziest ways. This hobby also entails more than just modding blasters--you learn how to use tools, you learn about materials and chemicals, and you learn how to debug and get creative. Even with all the pedantic douchebags, there is so much to learn and apply! Building off each other and forging new designs has always been the end goal of the community and it has certainly done that. I'm glad to have made my small contributions!

Bullpup complete!

What's up people?

Though many of you may think I have died, I have actually been alive and kicking! Not only that, but I managed to finally finish the project that I've been stalling on for so long:
The Bullpup v2.1!
The reason it's version 2.1 is that I made some slight modifications to Drev's original design. They include the following:
  • Extension spring for better trigger feel
  • Extended shoulder stock
  • Simpler way to attach handle
  • HDPE handle instead of wood
  • Adjustable barrel spacer
  • Set screws
  • Clear everything!
It took me a few tries to get the blaster from working spotty to working reliably, mainly with the prime. I had to extend the trigger tip a bit, throw a stronger catch spring in, and glue the shit out of the piece of tubing that sits in the catch. Anyways, let's get down to a good old-fashioned write-up, eh?

Bullpupdate!

Sup guys,

I'm in the process of modding my car right now so I've been slacking on the Nerf stuff for a bit. In order to not completely alienate you guys, I have provided you a nice picture of some of my progress thus far:

I should hopefully have my car upgraded and tuned in the next couple of weeks, so I'm giddy as a schoolgirl! I'll be chipping away at the Bullpup in the meantime, so hang tight.

Monkey see, monkey want, monkey do

Wassap peeps,

It has been a minute, and I have finally committed to a new project! I was going to try and finish a project that I have been putting off since the beginning of time, but I suppose it shall remain that way. All of this is due to my fellow modder Drev's latest writeup! You can see why:

Damn that's sexy! Now who wants to see it in clear? ;)

PVC hat rack mod

Sup people,

I have been stricken by another bout of laziness and gaming recently so I haven't gotten around to posting this writeup. Alas, the time has come! I've come up with a simple design that is good for 9 hats, and even more if you slide adjustable caps towards the center. The design is modular, and can be disassembled into many smaller pieces. Check it!
