What came in your mail today?

Needed some new polarized sunglasses. Broke with my 2 decade long tradition of being an Oakley man, and went with Shady Rays, a new company that showed up on my Twitter feed. Also got a new retractable windshield sun shade, since I broke my previous one last fall.

Got this one 2" taller than the first one, to fill up the windshield better, as the other one left some gaps. :thumbsup:

New driver's side front fender liner. Body shop quoted $80 or so for the part to replace it when they did the ft bumper cover about 18mos ago. Took me a while, but I got one for about $22, shipped.

2 more security cameras, and some color coded Cat6 cables so I can keep them straight if I need to change/troubleshoot connections later. Same brand of cameras as the first 2, but smaller. THese don't zoom, cuz I NEVER use that feature on the others, but they do record sound :biggrin:

I did everything on the front end of the Voy's suspension so it is about that time to drop some tax time coin on the rear. 20180223_133227.jpg 20180223_134503.jpg
Spohn pan hard bar and control arms.

I already have the Maxx suspension rear end links so this will tighten things up a little more back there.
 
The bag kit for the riding mower arrived today. Turns out I misread the capacity of the kit online, it holds half as much as I thought, 30 gallons total, not per bag. Probably a good thing actually, that will make lifting/dumping these things much easier. #MyAchingBack

If you're just looking to keep the cables straight at the ends, I swear by color-coded RJ-45 boots.
I keep a big spool of Cat5e and a bag of these suckers and it makes telling devices and cameras apart a breeze on the cheap.



I finally got my mail forwarded to my new address.
Contained in the first delivery, my Bachelors Degree, my CCENT Certificate, a check for $1,200 from my former landlord, and a bill for $26.
I wish every mail haul was like this where it's not just bills!

If the powder coat on these wasn't any good(which it is) I would keep the pan hard bar red uppers in white and lowers in blue honestly.
Red looks good, I went with all blue on mine but went with Massive Speed Systems, no issues and paint is still good even after the harsh winters and lots of road salt.

I was going to go with the Massive SS but I have heard of ppl having issues with them so I went with spohn. Alot of the guys over on tbssowners.com run them with no issue so it made my choose even easier.

I think that both products are good, most of my research was from the TBoffroad site and that helped in my decision making. I have had no noise issues at all.

Opened up my Amazon pkg just now to examine the fender liner I ordered.
"Hmm...that doesn't look like a fender liner..."
Looked up the part, and it's an air deflector - for a 2nd-gen Equinox / Terrain. :Banghead::Banghead::Banghead:
To add insult to injury - they don't offer to send the 'right' part, you have to order it again - and it's now $60, instead of the $22 I paid.

Thanks, Amazon... you may have earned a crosspost to the 'F*** You Thread' today. :rant:

My son's tablet back from Samsung. The screen went dark halfway through our vacation. Apparently the connector for the LCD came loose.
 
Talk about excessive packaging! A bubble pack envelope would have sufficed and be cheaper. I mean like, really! Still cheaper than buying local but our moose bucks are falling fast. Damn!

New AIO water cooler showed up, since I have extra fans, I ordered the one that came with a single fan to save a few $$$, and will add a spare to it.

Took longer than I liked, but the mower FINALLY got here. Delivery window was between 2pm and 6pm, driver calls me at 6 and says they'll be here in 45 minutes :hopeless: Stripped down some of the packaging for a pic, I may go tinker with it later. :biggrin:

Giving a new to me product a try on my black trim pieces on the Voy. Spring can't come soon enough I've been itching to give the Voy a good full detail. 20180306_194810.jpg
After seeing so many good reviews I might pull the trigger and try there sealer and wax products.

My headers arrived...and they're likely going right back in exchange. After I ordered the cheaper (chromed) version, I found out the (performance) benefits of ceramic coated, and decided it was worth the extra $100.

Picked up this back up camera for the truck from Amazon for $20. IP68 water rating so I'm going to mount it on the bumper where the step in is, unless there's a very convincing reason not to mount it there.

Looks nice, have a link?
