Trying to re-open the Toy Shop. New landlords again and thought it was going to be moving time once more. Haven't been able to get into the building since December because of over 4' of snow/ice and its remote location. The other occupants are gone. New, new owners finally agreed to a one year lease.
I had a 4wd plow truck back to the entrance today. Got the fence and entry door open. Snow shoveling isn't in my work habits anymore. Four heart attacks kinda slows ya down.. Had to get in the building to use the larger plasma cutter to remove broken studs/drill bits out of a 3.4 chevy head that a customer had brought in. Moved the two 64 Impalas around and made room for a 67 SS Chevelle that is scheduled for getting a big BBC engine when it gets out of paint next week or so..
Maybe get back to the Stude next week..Been Jonesin for the old gal. Gotta finish the mold for the front headlight/grille panel. Then finish the radiator/fender support from 1" aluminum tubing..

Actually, it blew me away when I ran them through the shrinker and all the intermediate bends followed around as well. The shrinker is a hydraulic Baileigh unit, but I adjusted the mock up on my manual shrinker and stretcher at home so they would work as well.
I really was not expecting that to happen. I would have thought a whole different process would be required or made out of more pieces would be required.
It was a great surprise.

I am so thrilled that I still have my MIG from my shop, it is a nice 220 amp and does everything I could want.

I'm finishing up on the repairs to a '96 Chevy S-10 that was purchased at a police auction for $500 by the friend f the guy I purchased it from. My friend did the work on the motor (about $500) and I've done the other repairs, new battery box, window crank handle, new headliner, general rust abatement, new hood latch cable, fixed broken seat springs, repaired rust hole sin driver's floor and finally today, replacement carpet and re-install interior. It has about 180,000 miles on it, but other than hose minor things, is in surprisingly good condition. Details in Journal entry #21.
Then a few minor electrical repairs on the '54 Desoto Firedome.
