Cody & Kurt’s Electrical CornerPosted in How To: Electrical on October 1, 2011 Comment (0)
Normally when my friends call me up with electrical stuff going on, it goes something like this, “Hey, can you help me wire up this dang-blamed neon sign?” Or, “I accidentally hooked the Jeep directly into the wall outlet to charge it; can you help me fix it?”
This time was different. My bud Cody found a neat shifter indicator for his automatic Jeep TJ and asked me if I’d want to do a column on it. I’m not one for those slushboxes, but I like reviewing new stuff and seeing how it’s put together. So I told Cody I’d check it out next time I saw him. Turns out the thing is pretty neat, so I agreed we’d put our heads together and do a column on it.
Well, when the time came to do the column, Cody’d got some rebar stuck in his foot or some such silliness, so when I showed up at his ranch, he called over our other buddy Kurt to help do the install. I told him I could do it, but he insisted I just take pictures and whatever notes I needed.
There were some good songs on the radio, but I didn’t have a tape recorder, and we didn’t actually bang our heads together so I didn’t take any notes or headache medicine. It was kind of weird not actually doing the wiring stuff and only taking pictures of it. I wonder if this is what the swimsuit photographers feel like. I could get used to this. OK, I might have helped a little and suggested a thing or two, but I still like to think taking pictures of pretty girls in swimsuits might be in my future. I am a photographer now with a resume and everything.
