Still - swims, rides, cross-country at this level of quality off-road vehicles. Myachta one word. That's just - the release of their long ceased, and there was very little produced. And to top it, a lot of these machines suffered from "rukodelschikov" that a door will be cut, the booth is welded on top - port of the machine completely. So that the search process is more or less a living instance can take a very long time. A reduction to the status of required - for the rest of time.

The search continued for several years ... continue ->

Now the restoration is complete, and the car is 100% gets the job done, allowing you to get "back to where nice and clean \ where no boots trod tourist" (C) T.Shaov

Features LuAZ-967 List of improvements

"And Indesit broke and not Tide washes" - or Gum: new technology

Modern life is difficult to imagine without a dishwasher - and seemingly many hours standing at the sink forever gone. But as usual, but it seemed - at the 6th year of life served faithfully Indesit IDL-40 said, "I'm tired, I'm leaving," and began to reek of fried plastic ... An autopsy revealed - stopped the motor for the pump and overheating it melted the fan blades. We still suspecting nothing, call the service for household appliances, find out the brand of the motor that we need, and look forward to when we will be presented by the price of a new one.

Wildebeest! (Not an antelope)

Finally managed to finish - and even try! - Another unfinished. Plans for the replacement of the bottom on stainless steel, which means - to be bent sheet, and very, very much. Previously this was done the old fashioned way - two plus two clutches corner between the sheet - and let's go hammer went through a board ... That's just the way this works only on narrow - 20 inches maximum - sheets, and he has not sufficient abundance. So - for sbychu dream will have to build further ->

The attraction of unprecedented generosity

Held company Mvideo, selling 'obsolete' Drives WD MyBook Live 2TB on the price of 1500P ... cheaper bare drive WD 2Tb Green, koy in and installed :) As there was to resist and not buy one, especially considering the dynamics of the dollar ...

Oblakaaaaa ... or impressions about the victim marketing.

Troubled times now, and lose all household electronic library for any external circumstances - a flood / fire / mask show - really do not want. Therefore, the desire to buy something to it lay and store a complete archive of all.

But just enough to lie - it is necessary to skillfully live long without food (and hence powered by 12 volts and not much to eat), not warm and not make noise (so as not to attract attention), and most importantly - to give direct access to the operating system installed, and not only the web interface.

But after a few weeks of searching on the Internet was next ->
