No, I am your father.

Got it all shot. I think my wife will get the trim painted tomorrow. Then I have to build the fence and rebuild the deck. Hang the light fixtures.

I kid you not, we stood out in this room last May and the they both said in unison, "Two weeks." I had a hard time not laughing when they both said it that way. I don't see much humor in it now.

Now that the weather seems to be drying out, it looks like we will be ready for the 4th of July party this year.

It has been almost a year for this 2 week project. Check out entry 136.

Yesterday it was warm and dry. Today was warm and dry. The same tomorrow. I took a vacation day to paint the exterior.

Got the windows masked and shot the paint.

My boss wanted an action shot. He will get a kick out of the shirt.

05-16-2009 10:17 PM Dash and Seat Location
The tube was tack welded to the side plates with the dash in place. Then everything was removed and the tube and plates were finish welded at the bench. After welding, it was bolted back in to assure it still fit.

The dash was installed and the seats located to determine an initial driver location. A little fine tuning to determine the centerline and then the steering column can be located.

05-16-2009 10:08 PM Dash Reinforcing Tube
The dash was cut to allow the tube to drop into place. Once the tube was located, the side plates were marked to see where it would fall in relation to the bolts. The top bolt is fine. The bottom bolt is in the tube. I decided to use a button head allen bolt for the bottom. Reliefs for the bolt were cut in the ends of the tube.

05-16-2009 10:04 PM Center of the Seat
Knocked the bolts out of the passenger seat. Then I attempted to find the centerline. It is probably going to take several tries to get this fine tuned.
