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.

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.

It’s filling and sanding time with K9. This is the part that takes so long. He finally has a tail. It took me forever to find that old steering boot in my pile of leftover junk. I’ve got the tail drying overnight before I can sand and paint it. I’m not sure if I’m going to do a round circle on the tail or not.

I love the Monte Carlo. I grew up with a silver one of these.

I was just reminded of Skeeball and how much I loved the game. Then I realized I have my own house and could very easily get one of these. And then I realized how much fun I have making thing sooo… http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Skee-Ball-Machine/
It’s been added to my list of things to build one day.

I hope I’ll have K-9 finished before Pensacola Paracon. I’d like to get a convention test run in before Pensacon in 2015. I also want him to black Back in Time while next to the BTTF DeLorean Time Machine from TeamFox that will be at the show.

All of the electronics work except I have a weird popping coming from the speakers. The speakers are fine when connected to my PC and a separate set of speakers are fine when connected to the MP3 trigger so this is a weird problem.
