Attached are pictures of the custom color Caliper paint that I mixed up using DupliColor Red, Black & Blue. I used a Pantone Color Formula Guide to help. My wife uses it in her printing business. I just painted the calipers with color and painted the mounts black. The Decals have changed over the years and cars. LOL

#1 Painted wheel #1113
#2 70's CC
#3 Chrome wheel #0069
#4 Split spokes

YMMV

Thanks Dave, I thought I had some more good ones, but having three PC's and 3 Digital cameras and the wife's IPhone, sometimes it is hard hard to find what you want. :brentil: My All Solstice folder in the workshop is ~17GB. :lol:

Hope other folks will post some nice ones. :thumbs: I know they are out there, I saw them years ago.

I am lucky that I have the Cutter so I can change when I get bored.

Woo Hoo, I found some more!!!! :thumbs: And some other JUNK TOO!!!

I understand what you mean. 8 PCs, 3 Cameras and an iPad at my house/office-at-home. I finally consolidated all the pictures in one place, accessible by all the PC's via my network. But there is so much stuff it is still difficult to locate pics unless I know an approximate date when I shot them.

I am blessed and/or cursed, depending on your viewpoint, by having an eidetic memory for pictures, I know if I've seen one before. It is sometimes quite frustrating to know I have the pic because I can remember it, but I cannot find it or put my hands on the negative.

The view out of the Computer Cave into the man cave content consumption room. And the Punisher shrine.

Car shows. I have more in the yard (the wife's idea), on the stairs leading to the basement and at Chipmagic.biz . .. Jeff kidnapped them!

I started with online gaming and a game machine I built myself. I could not afford the price of the pre-built machine I wanted so I assembled my own.

I generally did 1 -2 refreshes of the game machine, new CPU, more memory, faster hard drive, current generation video etc then they became obsolete so I migrated them to the "backup" in case my main machine failed and for when the kids came over and we did group on line gaming. Over time, they accumulated and I discovered different uses for each so I now have dedicated machines for specific tasks. They stay busy doing their tasks or I use them in parallel with gaming. Like my main video ripping machine is generally ripping music or video while I am playing online.

The servers just kind of grew as a result of our love for movies. We had ~200 VCR tapes that we gave away and replaced with DVD when that technology came along. One day we had 300 DVDs and soon we had 500 . .. and you can never find the one you want to watch. It became a labor intensive task to catalog, manage and maintain the library. Along came iTunes and Apple TV. We went online with all our music and video. That resulted in a lot of painful learning and soon the need for a server that could go from 500 gig to 8 TB without loosing data. The disk management software in Windows Home Server (the first version, not the current version) allows you to grow the disk size as large as you need it to be. I went from 4 internal 500 meg drives (2 TB total) to 4 each internal 2 TB drives and a total of 8 TB of storage space.

But then I needed to provide for backup, so I have paired servers.

that's how it starts .

Been There, Done That, Have the T-Shirt.

Since the kids all moved away and took their computers with them, the home computer menagerie constantly hovers around a population of 8 machines. As I upgrade the one I normally sit in front of, the rest benefit from the hand me downs. I currently have three ancient Dell laptops (WinXP) awaiting repurposing or disposal. Oh yeah, also an Acer netbook.

I do still make a partial living doing computer support and repair, so there is always a need to have some older machines available.

Today I discovered some major issues with the anti-malware, anti-virus software from one of the biggies in the business. I spent mucho time today running this stuff through my group of machines to determine the issues of when it will work, or not work. I got some very interesting results, which are not disclosed by the vendor.

Anyway, time to move on to other pursuits for the day. :dthumbs:
