Yay, so today I decided to go shopping for a bunch of spudgun parts with my $75 gift certificate to Lowes and some of my Christmas money.
First I went to Ace to get some 4" pressure rated pipe. I bought a 10' section and broght it out to my car to cut it, the thing was hard to cut once I got most of the way through it, luckly a nice man stopped and helped me hold the end. Then I was off to the local sprinkler store to get some 1.5" sdr21, they were starting to get low and who knows if they would reorder the same kind of pipe so I went ahead and bought 60' of the stuff. Turns out that a 300zx isn't designed to hold alot of pipe so I was in the parkinglot for awhile getting it to fit in. I went home because I didn't want to try to fit more pipe from Lowes in there with all that stuff.
Finnally I got to lowes and loaded up a handbasket full of various fittings that I needed and went to get some 2" pipe. Well I got to the rack that looked like 2" pipe, but it all said 1" on the side. I looked at the rack above it and nope I wasn't crazy, there was a bunch of 2" sch40 marked as 1" sch40[:0]. I would have bought that but they marked out all the barcodes with black marker, so they would have rang it up as 2" by hand anyway
It was dark by the time I got done, so I turned my headlight on and left. By the time I got out of all the street lights I realized that I couldn't see the road well. hmmmm. I pulled up behind a car at a stoplight and sure enough, no reflection of my headlights. I pulled of into a gas station and checked my fuses and tried anything I could think of to get them on but nothing. So I called my mom so I could just drive home behind her with my hazard lights on. I was messing with every electronic device in the car while I was waiting, hoping something would turn them on and nothing worked. My mom got there and I told her what I was going to do and went back to my car. Right when I sat down, before i touched anything the lights popped back on. So I think my car is trying to kill me because it doesn't like being a mule vehicle. The lights work fine now, but one day when I least expect it im sure my car will try and kill me again.
Anyway... not that anyone cares, I just thought it was an intresting day.
overall i bought 90' of pvc, 33 fittings, and a giant container of pvc glue.
and only spent about $40 out of my pocket and used up my $75 gift certificate.
