    Got Back From Deployment

    Well I posted on this forum about 2 years ago about a car PC I made for my 350z I said I would post pics when I was done. Then I got deployed in the military, now Iím back. So here is the completed job... Now this is bitter sweet, I finished the pc but then had to take it back out because my deployment caused so many financial problems I had to sell my house, sell my car, and move myself my wife and 3 kids to a less expensive part of the country. So here is to wishing I still had this great car.

    Nice install. Sucks that you barely got a chance to enjoy it. Enjoying your family is more imporatant, however.

    I'm sorry to hear about your difficulties. You could always look at the bright side though. I've had many friends go on deployments and come back to find an empty house and no wife or kids around with just a dear john letter and divorce papers. Of course there was the mp who had managed to rob the on base bank and get away with it at least until he went on deployment and ****ed off his wife. She turned around and called the MP's they came over verified that it was the stolen cash that he had hidden in the trunk of his car recalled him from his deployment threw him in jail plus got divorce papers.

    Welcome back and best wishes.

    You know what really sucks. YOU make sacrifices, YOU put YOUR life on the line for THIS country and you get screwed by the wonderful financial institutions that fail to recognize that if it werent for you brave people who put their lives on the line, there wouldnt be such things as freedom and capitalism. My sympathy to you for having to give up your hard earned system and sacrificing for you and your family.
    BTW, the system looked great. you really did a good job.

    Well, glad you are back. I am still here! Kuwait, been here since last October and won't be leaving any time soon.

    Too bad deployment was hard on you. We have quite a few guys that made 65k plus a year and when the deployed took a major pay cut, same issues. That was a gorgeous car, I am a Nissan NUT! Good luck on your future dealings man!

    PS: You should use JAG and all the Family Readiness Resources you can. THey can have finance charges and interest and all sorts of things removed and also have your payments fixed for an amount of time after your deployment. Let them fight for you!!!

    Hey guys I real appreciate all of your sympathies. You all are right though I have a wonderful family that has supported me through this whole thing. We are getting back on our feet and we will be back to where we were in no time. It helps because I'm taking the credit card companies to federal court and suing the hell out of them. Right now I have a 99 infinity I30 that I got a greet deal on and I’m working on putting that same pc in it I just need a few more parts to purchase and I’ll be ready to go. I need a new screen, some MDF, and either an opus, or a 400 to 750 power inverter. then I'll post some shots of that project.

    Hahaha way to fight back. It's just so f***** up that you got so f***** over when you were over there. Best of luck to you and your family. I'm sure your next install will kick just as much ***.
