|DRS50||got the roll cage finished up and and painted this morning. Cut and fabed up the sheet metal for the trans tunnel, got it done. Built a box to raise the shifter up some to be able to reach it easier. Got it all done and decided that was enough for one day. Will finish the little odds and ends on it tomarrow while I smoke the brisket the wife bought today.|

looks like today is a little coffee and early morning fabrication. Then it's fireworks with the kids. Might go get my donor bike this weekend to steal the big fat 4" wide tires.
A lot of work I've been doing at my job is paint ready so I should have some pics soon.

Spent a little time today getting the piece I cut out of the HDTP ready to go into the convertible. It is already pulling a little bit. I will have to be super careful if this is going to fit after the welding is done.

A week or so ago I built a trailer hitch for the Vette in anticipation of pulling a small sail boat once in a wile (club cruises to the lake, etc). today was the first time I had actually hooked the boat to the car and drove it down the road, and I noticed the rear view was pretty poor, so today I built a "clip on" high mount mirror. a strap of 1" wide aluminum with a strip of fuzzy velcro inside to protect the stainless. it's pretty crude, but very effective. now I can see over the boat so I'll know what's about to run over me.

|cozwurth||Took a bit of an anti-freeze shower under the 'new to us' '95 Z-28 that I picked up recently. Drove it in the rain the other day and realized that it had no heat to clear the windshield. Both lines at the heater core were still relatively cool, so I knew there was no circulation. Tried to pull the lower heater core hose off the pump and put a plug on the pump at the same time. Didn't think about clamping the hose off first unfortunately. Didn't work quite as planned. Duh! Flushed the remnants of some brown Dex-cool sludge out of the core, heat works great now.|

I have been collecting steel to build a brush rake for a friend's kabota mini excavator.
I think I will start welding some of it today.

My wife let's me run amuck.
I am considerate enough to tell her,what I am going to do, and ask her opinion.
But she knows and will often tell me, your going to do it any way.
So i just have to work hard at policing myself.
She is a very good woman, and is very good to me, and my kids.
I did much better on the second try
