Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 071, 072, 073, 075

Well, look what finally showed up after more than five months.  The last shipment came in late April.  If you recall, last year, I also had to wait five months for parts as there is was delay from July to December.  I am pretty much expecting another five month (or more) wait next year.  I really hope Eaglemoss gets their shit together. 

Issues 071, 072, 073, 075
Here are the Issues in the shipment. Oh wait.  Do you see something missing?   The problem is with Issue 074.  This is what caused the delay in the first place.  Apparently, after five months, Eaglemoss still has not fixed the matter with Issue 074.  I have no idea what the problems are, whether it is with parts....which, by now, should have been solved.  Or, with the printed portion...again, should be been solved by now.

By the way, if you remember from the last shipment, we assembled the Driver's Side Door.  This shipment is, of course, the Passenger Side Door.  Issue 074 is the head liner, which is basically Issue 070, but flipped.  Anyway, we should get to the build.

Issue 071 - Passenger Door Details

Issue 071 assembled
Yeah, it had been so long, I totally forgot to take the parts contents photo.  As mentioned this is the same as the Driver's Side Door, just mirrored.  No real surprises.

Issue 072 - Passenger Door Lights

Contents of Issue 072
Hey, I remembered to take a photo this time.

Issue 073 - Passenger Door

Contents of Issue 073
Again, pretty straight forward here.  Just think, the last time I worked on this, it was about two weeks into the NHL playoffs. Right now, we are two weeks into the new season. 

So, after you are done with 073, you need 074 to install the passenger door to the frame.  You are kinda stuck here with another piece that you need to store whilst you wait for the next issue.

Pro tip:  Use the vacuum-formed tray to store your assembled door.

Issue 075 - T-Panel

Contents of Issue 075
You can assemble and install the T-Panel without installing the passenger door.

While there are no new screws in this shipment, Issue 075 does introduce the first pair of fluxband brackets. 

Look! Fluxband brackets!

Here is the current extra screw count:

62-AP, 18-BP, 2-CP, 20-AM, 12-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 23-DM, 3-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 2-EP, 18-FP, 2-JM, 5-HP, 2-GP, 10-NM, 1-MM, 4-KM, 1-LM, 1-IP, 1-OM, 1-PM, 4-JP, 2-KP, 1-QM

to be continued...

01 October 2019


Three-quarter through the year and here we are.

1 October 2019
   310-986-2544  Lomita, CA - You should remember this number from last month.  No?  How about from  yesterday, and a few days before that...or a few more days before that?  The last three, now four, calls were from this number.  I neglected to block this number before...but, I did after yesterday's call.  Because it was blocked, Call Protect registered this as a miss call.  Fuck you!

2 October 2019
   310-986-2544  Lomita, CA - Blocked, but still calling.  Fuck you!

3 October 2019
   310-986-2544  Lomita, CA - Pretty sure I blocked this number.  Fuck you!

4 October 2019
   310-986-2544  Lomita, CA - Oh, I guess blocking the number on he Call Protect does not block them on the phone.  So, welcome to the blocked list on  my phone, too.  Fuck you!

  310-986-2544  Lomita, CA - Blocked on the phone and blocked on Call Protect. Yet, still attempting to call (getting notifications via Call Protect).  Fuck you!

8 October 2019
  843-892-1952  Hamer, SC - So, I did some googling. Actually, this is from wikipedia:

Hamer is home to Hamer Hall, a residence from 1890 listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is also the location of South of the Border, a famed tourist trap just before the state line with North Carolina; and it is the home of Blenheim Ginger Ale.
Yeah, whatever.  You have telemarketers chilling in your town.  Fuck you!

   800-681-6998 - Yeah, totally a scam call.  Fuck you!

   650-562-6846  Redwood City, CA - This is interesting, when I did a search for this number the second result was this blog.  Why?  Well, they have texted before.  Yes, I said text. Can you guess where/who the text was from?

Fucking Door Dash!  I am sure that fucking cunt Lori is behind this.  If I ever see Lori, I will punch that face in the cunt (see what I did there?).

Hold on. Panda Express?  Really?   That is like the worst Chinese food you can get.  Surely, in an area like Redwood City, which is pretty close to San Francisco...where arguably some of the best Chinese food in the country is served...you can find a better place than fucking Panda Express.

Anyway, the number is now blocked.  Lori, Panda Express, Door Dash...get in an uncomfortable triangle and fuck yourselves.

   650-316-8358  Mountain View, CA - Going to take a wild guess.  There is a high probability that this is Lori's Door Dash guy calling her with questions for the delivery.  I hope Lori does not get her food.  Fuck you!
9 October 2019
  800-222-3467 - Okay, yeah...so I googled this number and the first couple of results were in Russian. Gonna go out on a limb and classify this as telemarketer call.  Probably a Russian bot. Fuck you!

11 October 2019
  Unknown - The good news is, this call was silenced. The not so good news is, I am unable to shame them, because we know this a telemarketer number.  Fuck you!

14 October 2019
  202-318-2952  Washington, DC - Ooh, a call from Washington.  No way this is legit. Actually, legit or not.  Washington...fuck you!

16 October 2019
  310-986-2544  Lomita, CA - Hey, we all remember this number, right?  I blocked it so this was flagged by Call Protect as 'Telemarketer'.  Yeah, no shit.  Blocked, yet still trying to call.  Fuck you!

18 October 2019
    984-206-1623 North Carolina - Uh, fuck you!

   310-986-2544  Lomita, CA -  Never give up, never surrender.  Fuck you!

21 October 2019\
  276-244-6200  Grundy, VA - Solomon Grundy, Born on a Monday, Christened on Tuesday, Married on Wednesday, Took ill on Thursday, Grew worse on Friday, Died on Saturday, Buried on Sunday, That was the end, Of Solomon Grundy.

I wish it was the end of telemarketing.  Fuck you!

22 October 2019
  844-299-9291 Unknown - Oh, unknown...well, then I give up.  Hold on.  Hey Google, what do you have on  this 'unknown' number?  Oh, you say, "scam, robocaller, blacklist..."  Fuck you!

  844-299-9291 Unknown - Wait, did you just try calling, again?  I just outed you...okay, Google outed you...as a telemarketer.  Fuck you!

23 October 2019
  619-424-6970  Chula Vista CA - Guessing this is another spoofed number.  I mean, it could be a legit wrong number...then again, I could be rich and famous.  Fuck you!

  562-548-5014  Long Beach, CA - First result in a search,  "Robocaller Warning". Fuck you!

  310-843-3089  Beverly Hills, CA - Third call today.  This is awesome. Fuck you!

  559-289-0599  Fresno, CA - File this under scam.  Not just basing this on quick search and the results were scam, telemarketer, robocaller...  But this:

Call coming from a 559 area code, but I should call back to a 951 area code?  I mean, kudos to you for getting the same number in different area codes, but really...fuck you!

24 October 2019
  562-548-5014  Long Beach, CA - Straight up "robocaller warning" result from the Google. Fuck you!

  +222 31 99 6252  - Uh, where in the blue hell is this coming from?  So, the +222 is apparently from Mauritania.  I will admit that my geography is not the best, but Mauritania is on the west coast of Africa.

+222 31 99 6252
Okay, I will admit one positive thing did come out of this call. I now have the song "Africa", by Toto, stuck in my head.  Now, it is stuck in your head.

Other than that, fuck you!

25 October 2019
  844-299-9291  Unknown - Hey, I recognize this number.  They called earlier in the month...robocaller.  Fuck you!

28 October 2019
  866-949-3732  Unknown - So, this is the new trend.  "Toll free" like numbers.  Fuck you!

29 October 2019
  310-845-7738  Culver City, CA - Are these guys just spoofing numbers to meet their quota for the end of the month?  Fuck you!
