WIring Harness Replacement

by Projects
A minor/major electrical issue has been a problem as well. The Alternator wires are all custom done and wire nutted together with the ground wire missing. The headlight harness has burnt wires and the passenger side is dim on both the headlight and the brake lights so to remedy this i bought a brand new headlight harness and a replacement alt harness. This became a necessity as the alternator wire was so brittle that it broke off and stop charging the battery. So I got everything replaced, grounded out the alt which actually connects into the headlight harness and all issues are fixed.

Rear Window

by Projects
So one of the big issues with the car are the rotted out window seals on the front and rear. I have removed the rear window, grinded on the paint on the seams and identified holes. I then treated it with rust encapsulation until i can weld the holes and such. Its covered with plastic for now

Rims and Tires

by Projects
It has taken sometime and over the past few months i have done quiet a bit of work. I will start with adding rims. I purchased a set of Bullitt rims off a 200 mustang which would not fit the front with out spacers. They butt up against the ball joints so i bought 1" spacers to get them fit. Problem 2 was the tires they came with were way too big and rubbed. The were 235/50/17 on front and 255/0/17 on the rear so I ended up buying 225/45/17 for the front and 245/45/17 on the rear. So she is now all mounted, balanced, and ready to roll around a bit more.

Killing ESX/Vmware File Locks

by tech
The Best information I have found on the web to kill locks on VMDK files

Log on to the Service Console of your ESX host.

-Use the Linux lsof (list open files) command along with grep to find the VM process that is responsible for locking your VMDK file. lsof |grep vmname (Where vmname is the name of the VM in question.)

-Then, kill any processes that have your VMDK file open with the kill -9 pid command (Where pid is the process ID of the offending process).

Changing a Clustered Disk

by tech
Method 1: Change Disk Signature You should have dumpcfg.exe which can be found in Windows 2000 Resource Kit for Windows 2000 and 2003 or have the diskpart.exe shipped by windows 2008. 1. Stop SQL Service. 2. Copy data of the whole drive to some place. I prefer to use Robocopy. 3. Power off nodes, leave one node on. 4. Stop Windows cluster service on the alive node. 5. Mount the new disk to the node, typically it’s LUN in the SAN which can be accessed by all the nodes. 6. Set the drive letter to any temp letter. 7. Copy data back to the new drive. 8. Remove the old disk.

Floor Panel Welding

by Projects
Busy morning full of rookie mistakes making my weld job harder. Lesson learned...ALWAYS secure your pan in place before you start welding...I knew this but didn't so needless to say it ended up being a pain in the ass and shifting. I got it to work but damn!!!!

Radiator and Rust

by Projects
Installed the 20" Radiator fan shroud and WOW! Its like wind tunnel when i get out of the car with the hood up! That is crazy but the engine should stay nice and cool. Also removed the bottom the the rear seat. Well found about a 3"x2" rusty hole. not too bad as it seems like the only one but the rear window is definitely leak as it was wet under the seat. So I really need to get the weather strips replaced or get a carport so i can keep this car from getting so wet
