We have been under the smoke from up there for a week now. The whole weekend was hazy and health alerts for people with difficulty breathing to stay indoors. We need the wind to switch around and blow the smoke to the arctic circle and Russia...
You'll be happy about having all the "junk" out of the way once your done. Then you can start accumulating new junk...

Hope the firemen get it under control quick, thinking of you guys up there.

Well, today was another "non-car stuff" day. Dug down and uncovered the septic tank so it could get its annual pump-out.
Sure glad it was a LOT cooler today than it has been lately - but NOT happy that the cause of the cool-down is that the sun was blocked by dense clouds of forest-fire smoke.
Drought like S Cali around here this year. (It's not climate change - its just that the weather is different than it usually is! )
Also got a trailer-load of scrap metal ready to go to the scrappers first thing tomorrow. Approx 3 or 4 more loads to go yet.
And THEN - gotta get out the recip saw and chop up the old hot-tub so it can go to recycle place. All that should keep me out of mischief until the weekend!

Oh, and by the way my LP for the night got a little later than my CCR and Chuck Berry I listened to yesterday...

I got out there for my five minutes (just about literally 5 minutes) and heated up the front window frame portion to straighten out the bend a little to match the roof.
Got that all done and then opened up my box of wheel covers our fabrication master John Long sent me.
A few of the very first '53 Corvettes sold had passenger car wheel covers on them, so I figured I needed to look into that for my Motorama truck. I really would love to have Vette wheel covers but being a set is about $2000-$3000 I will be going without them.
Besides, these may even be cooler being the first Vettes used them.
I love the box John, I appreciate that you appreciate my order.
It cracks me up that I thought he was sending me 4. So I opened up the box pulled them out and took this photo. I then picked the box up and headed to the garbage can and it hit me that the box was heavier than I thought it would be. I had to double check that the box bottom was real thick or something to account for the weight, nope, there was another wheel cover! LOL Glad I double checked.
I can't wait until I get them on some wheels on this truck out in my "styling courtyard" to stand back and look at it.
Now I need to find a set of worn out white walls someone is pulling off some vintage Corvette that I and put on the truck while it's being built.
John, I thank you so much for the covers, that was very nice of you and I really appreciate it.

Looks like a fun project.
All I did today was to put my garage "off the grid" so to speak. I now have an 8 ga extension cord feeding the breaker panel from the house next door. Hopefully the hydro will be pulled off the house in the next couple of days and demo can begin.

I backed my friend's '72 Chevelle into the "operating bay" and started draining the coolant in preparation for an entire drivetrain swap. Then I removed the drive belts, then the fan, shroud, upper hose, etc. etc.
I "tinkered" with it for a while and ended up with this..
Parts in the trunk, on the floor, everywhere...
He might be a bit surprised tomorrow when he comes over to help and all we do is remove the hood and hook up the chains...
We still need to remove the bench seat and carpet and then cut out the floor for the Tremec 5 speed. We need to get it all bolted in and measure for the driveshaft to be made, so I'm hoping we can get to that point tomorrow. He's bringing the motor and rear axle with. He had the Tremec shipped here.

LOL, I know what you mean...
Heres a few pics of the place that buys and sells the wood any kind of wood you want...The guys bent over backwards to get me just what I wanted and were a big help. All the wood beams are the heart pine, they just resaw them into any thickness boards you want.theres a few more of what it looks like after planning down. I had 2 10' boards and a 14' board all were 14" wide. and around 1 3/4 thick and now theyre just a tad over 1 1/4" thick.these will be stair treads and risers in the staircase Im building ,If I don't screw it up it should be the focal point of the whole house and be that one, over the top, thing that sells the house.
