They jacked it up today. I doubt it will be done in two weeks, but maybe three? Anyway, it is good to see progress. Downside is that the compressor and the welder no longer have power, so I couldn't do too much even if I had the time. They should form and pour the "wall" tomorrow.

I have been watching "The Money Pit" as a documentary. That is a chainsaw the guy is using to put a hole in the wall. If I make it through this, the 41 should be a snap.

06-02-2008 06:29 AM Why I haven't been working on the 41
Got back from Topeka last night. My friend and co-worker, Adrian, and I went to the Summer Nationals. What a blast. Got to vist with some old friends. Saw Hillary Will win her first and John Force win his 126th.
Anyway, we have a room that leaks. The PO converted the room from a 2-1/2 car garage. Long story short, in order to fix it, we are going to have it jacked up and have a new concrete floor poured on top of the old one. This will put the floor above grade, preventing the water from getting in.
So, I have been spending the last two weeks moving stuff out and cramming it in the rest of the house. And my wife decided to have a garage (driveway) sale to get rid of some of the stuff. It will probably be two more weeks before I can get back at the car. The joys of home ownership!

05-15-2008 10:33 PM The Cowl Repair Panels Arrived
Both braces are complete now. The black circles are traced from the holes in the original cowl. The red circles are from measurements taken from the original pieces. They aren't quite the same. I am going to wait to drill the holes until I can be a little bit more certain where they go.
The repair panels were on the front porch when I got home tonight. I decided to put the braces and panels in at the same time so I could be sure everything fits. I checked to see how high the pits were. The cut will be made just above the worst of the pitting.
With the old cut away, the remainder is pretty solid. Now I just have to fit and cut the replacement panel. Cutting, welding, grinding.

05-11-2008 06:59 AM Chickasha Was a Bust
What a disappointment! There were a few neat things there, but nothing worthy of taking pictures. Spent 4+ hours on the road, about $60 for gas, $7 for a hot link and pop, $4 to park, and 2 hours walking through twice. The fall 2007 meet was much better than this. I am hoping it is the spring show that is not so hot and the fall one this year will be up to par. The Creek County meet last month was better than this!
