Hard work today.....someone had to hold the camera.
I took pics of the guys doing the floor......
|Today 11:16 AM|
Floor trusses to span 26' would be 16" high compared to the 9-1/2" high TJI joists I will be using. The second floor will be getting 16" open web truss joists though, so no more posts or load bearing walls in the rest of the house. They are made out of 2x4's.

I am curious why you have a center support beam instead of using trusses ?? Is the house going to be 2 stories and code requires that for the weight ?

|evolvo||I actually did this a couple of weeks ago, but was embarrassed to say. But lessons learned............I've been driving the car on and off since last summer and have not really been happy with the braking. Not near as good as I remember from before I took it apart to paint. I've bleed them numerous times to no effect. So laying in bed one night I surmised that it must be in the booster. Not a pleasant thought since it's inside the car buried under miles of wires. So first things first, I pull the vacuum hose off the booster and start the car. Just a very slight whistling coming from the hose, that's no good. Disconnect the vacuum hose at the intake side and the idle shoots up and tons of vacuum. Maybe it's the vacuum check valve. That will be easier. So I pull the hose and valve off the car, take the valve off the hoses and check it out....hmmm... seems to work just fine. Look inside the hose that was on the booster side and I spot something in there. Removed the silicone plug I had put in the booster vacuum tube ( and somebody forgot to remove) to keep the dirt out. Put it all back together and voila, power brakes, just like I remember!|

Today I sold my Jag XK8. I hope the new owner enjoys it more than I did.

Hang in there Pugsy.
After a very short time with the telephone company I realized I would never have a house built.
Neither I nor my wife has the temperament to go through that process.

I been gluing up a million pipes, throwing extra dirt into the window well to clear the basement slab, marking lines on the foundation wall where the concrete will stop, moving 3 yards of limestone screening to set the pipes on, having a plumbing inspection, setting up the posts that hold the beam up, watching the stone slinger shoot rocks into the basement followed up with raking them level, re-adjusting pipes.....and holy cow, I'm freakin' dying man.........:dr unk:
A few fellas will stop by tomorrow to shmooze the concrete slab in the basement tomorrow.....oh yeah....framing next.

|DRS50||Yep I know the aircraft stripper very well, had places on the grille where I could not get to with the sanders so I decided to use it. Have not checked to see what the paint was on jeeps back then in 1967 but it was tough, even the the stripper had problems removing it. Firste application just brightened up the yellow color it was when new, the second coating of stripper bubbled it up and third got all the first and second didnt get. Then came wire wheel and sand paper.|

I've been trying to strip 2 front fenders for my '62 Impala. The aircraft stripper doesn't seem to work very well. The can had a lot of dust on it when I got it from the parts place. I'm wondering if it was old and "stale" ???
I'd like to get them and the hood in primer and on the car so I can drive it once before winter. It's been sitting here since spring with valid plates and insurance on it...
I need to clean up the mess of chips from the stumps today too.

|DRS50||Not much here , just going to work and coming home and sanding primer getting ready for color.|
|Yesterday 06:14 AM|
Not a lot to show. I have started fitting my RH Quarter panel.
|Yesterday 04:42 AM|
The only thing I have been doing is working.
Nothing to post, I haven't even ordered any cool parts.
