07-13-2008 03:00 PM Back on the Left Cowl Bottom
With air and welder available, work started again on the cowl bottom.
One of the great things about sheet metal work - You start with a part that costs you $105 looking like the one on the left, spend about 8 hours modifying it, and you end up with the one on the right! The two larger holes are for the fender bolts. All of the rest of the holes are for plug welds.
Once the cowl bottom repair panel was fit to the car, the inner brace (see entry #135) was located and welded in place. All of the non-welded, inaccessible areas received a coat of POR-15.
I hope to have the patch panel installed during the coming week so I can work on the right side next weekend.

07-13-2008 02:50 PM End of Week 6 of the 2 Week Project
Week 7 starts on Monday. The carpet crew came out and measured for the carpet estimate. Other than that, not much has changed. My friend Adrian needed to replace the timing belt on his VW, so I did hook up the electricity temporarily so we would have air. This also means I can weld. I have to get back on the 41!

07-02-2008 05:53 AM We Got Windows!
Work continues. The windows are in and the roof is going together. Still haven't seen the electrician who will reconnect the garage so I can have air and a welder. It's just a matter of time now.

07-02-2008 05:51 AM The Floor Goes In Through the Window
I'm beginning to believe this project actually may get done and I can get back to my 41. The floor is in! It isn't perfect, but we are covering it up with carpet. And at 8+ inches higher, the carpet should stay dry!

06-28-2008 09:34 AM Volleyball Anyone?
Well, I was hoping we would have the electricity to the welder and compressor. Two weeks!
Anyway, they have the sand in, the vapor barrier, and the remesh. Concrete should be here Monday (?)
I am going out and finding a couple more items to put on ebay.
