John long One hour flat for me. I had to drill the lower u-bolt plate/shock mount to seat on the bottom of the Tie bolt. I had read you had to redrill the spring perch but never heard about the interferance on the bottom. No big deal. Rear is bolted in.

Too Many Projects Sorry to hear about your sucky weather RIP. We were in the path of a major snowstorm last Friday and were warned we could get a foot of snow !! Fortunately, it rained out a lot of the moisture in the plains and stayed south of us by a dozen miles. 30 miles south of us DID get a foot of snow... All we got was a dusting that melted away in a couple days. WHEW, that was CLOSE...

Yesterday, I started sanding the inner wheel houses to prep them for paint. I don't know what that gray speckle stuff is they sprayed on at the factory but it is on there to stay. It turns gummy under a 2" disc and plugs them up right away.. I finally got most of it off and started grinding on the rusty areas under where the tray supports were. When I got to the right side I found this...







Great, ANOTHER unexpected rust out repair to do.













About an hour later, I have good metal again.

Rip VW Oil truck finally found my house about 1/2 hour ago. Then he got stuck in my driveway and had to use every inch of hose he had.

Oh, you ask why did the truck get stuck? Cause we got snow again last night. I got a whopping 2 1/2 inches. I know This pales in comparison with what many people are dealing with today all across the country, and I feel their pain. However this truck driver wasn't watching where his wheels were rolling and he rolled into a stump. Tried to move forward and started tearing up the ground. I told him to see if he could off load from there. He did and when he was done, I gave him a shovel and pointed him in the direction of my gravel pile. I said "I'm cold I am going inside" I then went inside. He moved about a wheelbarrow of gravel and got his truck moving. he even went back and raked the gravel into the wheel divits. I liked that.

The weather here lately has been rain,snow,wind,more and more rain, and more snow. I am tired of this winter crap. I need to let the fuel set for an hour or 2 before using my furnace as I like to let all the little bubbles that form from pumping the fuel in exit. My furnace gets grumpy if it gets bubbles in the fuel..

Basic part of the day is shot so I am going to plant my rear in my favorite chair and watch stupid daytime TV.

To Be Continued... I hope not!

Looking at the thumbnail I thought you were working on a bicycle.

Rip VW Went out to the shop this morning. I flipped on the lights and turned on the furnace. I heard it come on but it sputtered a bit on startup. At a minute 30 it was flame out.. Crap I ran out of Heating oil for the furnace. Had to cancel the day due to lack of heat and serious lack of wanting to work in the cold.

Called the Oil guy and he said "I'll put you on thee delivery list". I asked when I could expect delivery and this is what he said "Could be today, tomorrow, or maybe Friday". he said he had to ask Don the driver, and he is like out delivering oil at the time.

I have a small 110 Gallon tank and there is only 1 local dealer here willing to haul less that 200 gallons for delivery. So I am at the mercy of petroleum again.

Being on a fixed budget I can't afford a bigger tank as a bigger tank means a lot more money to fill and that is money just setting there when it is not being used. Nice thing about a 110 gal is when it is empty I am acutely aware of how much it costs to refill. I gotta be frugal these days.

tech69 got some new tools in the mail and will immediately be put to use. My steck straight seam buster came up missing at another shop so I finally replaced it. The copper vise grips are nice for edges. Instead of vise gripping a flat piece of copper onto an edge it's all one piece. Very nice for welding the edge of a pinch flange.

Also put an hour into my bike. Blocking and reapplying filler here and there. Smooth sailing and almost ready for final prime.
