I'm starting thread this to here what it is you guys do for a living. I'm sure, I'm not the only one curious.

I will start. I'm an aerospace welder, out of south east Michigan, for 17 years. I've been welding/fabricating for 25 years straight. Noting top secret here. I build for the A380 airbus, Honeywell, Lockheed Martain, apache helicopters, and many more. Here are some pictures of what I do.







Yes, those are massive turbos, and huge intercoolers.

I spend my days inspecting welds. Start out every day looking at on average 500-1000 weld xrays... :)

Awesome man, your work looks great.

I am a engineer for shell global as my "real job" and I own a small performance shop called MDR Performance. Mainly build/tune awd imports (Evo, sti, gtr etc) because I'm one of the few shops near Houston that has a AWD dyno.

Just the doc..I am qualified to run them on the ground, but never really had any interest in flying them. I have flown IN them, plenty of times. Gotta give you credit for the work you do upfitting all those vehicles. Done some of the work with airplanes in the past, modifications, switch and radio installations etc. I hate that stuff lol

Has anyone else noticed the number of threads lately where the only posters all have less than 20 posts?

Newbs, if it seems like it would be a popular thread, there's already one going:

Thanks, Chris. I did do a search and didn't come up with anything. I was wondering why there wasn't a thread like this. Am I in the dog house now? And its stuck like this for eternity now? , My bad.

It's the keywords that makes the difference. Like the weep hole and pee hole thread, two totally different searches. But yet the same subject.

Does that mean I have to take a mod of my truck now, for punishment .

Mechanical Engineer for General Dynamics Electric Boat. We design and build the U.S Navy submarines, so no specific pictures from me, as I don't want to go to jail . But, heres a pic of one of our latest VIRGINIA Class subs.

Haha. Yes I've never exceeded the speed limit in my Unleashed tuned eco either... . I've also never killed and turboed subies from red lights. It's all hypothetical lol

I think it is great new posters, such as myself, engage...don't you? Kudos to the OP.

'So what' would be my response to a clear effort to denigrate...I can surely see the difference between "afford" and "what do you do".
