Esser Automotive will be relocating starting in the middle of November. This move will give me more space, a much better location and is closer to my home. I’ve never really been fond of my current location, nor the 25 mile drive. This move will also put me much closer to many of my customers, as well as new customers. So overall I feel this move will be a big positive and will only help the shop grow.
As you may have noticed, the site has been down for the past 24 hours or so. The issue was started with a set of WordPress plugins conflicting causing a huge server load, which in turn caused my hosting company to block all http traffic to the site. Traffic was blocked, however http access was granted to myself via a password and login which needed to be entered into a popup box. However this box was generated on any page, or website that linked, or hot-linked to this domain. Meaning, if I responded to a post on one of the numerous forums I frequent, every time someone loads the page, thus calling this domain to display my sig pic, the login box was generated. You can imagine how frustrating and annoying this was, and caused me to get my signature deleted from several boards. It even lead to me being called a spammer. lol Hardly. I removed the suspect plugins and the initial issue was resolved and http access was supposedly granted. However, anything not hosted in the main directory was still bringing up a 404 error. It seems that whoever flipped on my http access, only partially did so. Talk about annoying! But, the issue has been fixed and the site should be up and fully running once again. If you encounter any strange bugs, please feel free to drop me a line and let me know!
Getting some of the wiring done on the component board. I now realize that I definitely hate wiring. I am using switched grounds to make wiring to the dash and switch panel much easier. I will need to build another one for the nitrous controller, but that’s a project for winter. I have been planning a lot for what I want to do with this truck. Below is a list of things I want to work on. 1.) Install turbo and intercooler. 2.) Rebuild diff and install support cover. 3.) Install carpet kit and possible 6pt cage.
Started planning out the electronics board for the truck. It will be mounted behind the passengers side seat and is made of a 1/8″ aluminum panel. I also installed the 4 point buss bar that will distribute the battery power throughout the truck as well as the firewall pass-thru for the 12v battery feed to the panel. I still need to find a suitable place to locate the bulkhead connector for the engine harness. Read more
