I'm a geek and these are the toys in my garage. Here you'll see me work on anything from a classic Mustang to a functioning replica of K-9 from Doctor Who.

I took K-9 to visit my friend Mark and R2D2. This was the first time I had K9 mobile with the shell on. He worked well with only minor glitches. Obviously I was missing the neck and bumpers. I left the neck at home and was kicking myself for doing that.
If Mark posts the video of R2 and K9 both dancing to “I’m too sexy” I’ll post it here.

This morning the DeLorean caught the light at just the right angle. There was a time machine in my time machine next to my time machine.

K-9 speaks and the blinkies work. He’s getting closer to being a working tin dog.

I made K-9 with the idea that I’m going to take him to conventions but I also take the DeLorean to conventions so K-9 had to be able to ride with me. I designed him so the head and drive portion were removable. They go in the trunk and the main body rides in the passenger seat. I’ll be using a couple of towels to keep my seats damage free but it fits like I had hoped.

K-9 has a tail now and I’ve started the button pad for the top. The electronics layout is coming along. I blew up my voltage regulator. I need to pick up a new one before I can test the servos with this set up. The MP3 trigger works perfectly.

A must have table/ storage for the man cave. And what better way to store unused or old tires. #mancave #kamispeed (at www.kamispeed.com)

I might have to do this with my DeLorean’s original NTCs.

As far as painted DeLoreans go this one isn’t that bad. I’m not sure what emblem that is on the grill.

K-9 finally has some color. The August 9th deadline looks like it may be possible. Unfortunately I have decided to drop the nose laser for now. I will make it functional down the road. The buttons on the back are going to be a rush job as well. they may or may not light up by the deadline.

My claim to fame is I found some cool stuff for Bruce Campbell twice back in 2011.

K-9’s head is proving to be a real challenge.
