Been running wires all day today. Hopefully I can get insulation and drywall in 2 months. Lots of other things to do before this though. Every time I turn around, I see something else to do.

All water and drain pipes are done and inspected. Framing inspection done.

If the year turns into hot rod time estimates, it'll be another three.... I miss working on my car.
Yeah, but you'll have a spankin' new house built the way YOU want it...

You should've posted that in the trivia thread. I've never seen anything like that before. Almost looks factory, but I can't believe they would be that irresponsible.

We were supposed to get hit by the latest system overnight into today. It broke up before it got this far and all we have is light flurries. Maybe get an inch accumulation. We were -14 a couple nights ago.
Bumper looks nice, the tag light, is it also a brake light in the center ?

cozwurth Got a little work done on my camper today. I pulled the front window last week trying to track down a leak. I got all of the putty cleaned off of the back of the window frame, got the front of the camper cleaned up and ready to reinstall the window. Once of the screws stripped the wood, so I drilled it out, and glued slivers of wood in to fill the hole. Broke out the mallet and wood chisel to remove a portion of the framing around the window. I needed to build up an area where the opening was a bit too large and one of the window screws split the framing. The replacement wood is glued and clamped in place, and will get trimmed to size once the clue dries.

Nothing of note accomplished on the '57, just looked for the receipts for the calipers. No joy there.

whinny Good place to start as a counter jumper, upwards and onwards, started my 9 to 5 job 30 years ago as a counter jumper then within 18 months I was on the road as a rep. Never looked back. Good luck to nick, hope it goes well.

MARTINSR I didn't do crap but Nick did. Today he went to his orientation at his new job at Harbor Freight. He got home, went to the machine shop and got his axle where they had pressed on the new bearing. He installed the axle and then went off to work in the Falcon for the first time. I am so proud of him.

Retail, if you haven't worked retail you don't know you are alive! I always say that when you go to work retail look at the hours the store is open when you walk through the door, and be ready to work those hours. Forget what they say, what you are being hired for, be ready to work all the hours on the door. He was suppose to work graveyard stocking shelves. He went to work tonight at 5 pm. I went by to see him there (without him seeing me understand) and he was manning the register! The hardest job in that building is the register! I can't wait until he gets home tonight and see how it went.
