Floating dock or on pilings? Moving a floater is one thing, but on piles is not something I'd want to try moving

This sounds like something that should have a video camera rolling while you do it.

Funny chit happens when people do things like this.

Good luck with it.

Wife and I drove 5 hrs. north to watch the grandkids play in a 3 on 3 street basketball tournament. There will be more games today, but also a huge car show! So we get double the fun!

After spending some time with my wonderful wife like a super lunch out with her I got out to the garage and stripped the paint off the roof. I am ready to get it back up there and finish up this chop. I was planning on using the extra top I have to lengthen this one but it is so darn rusty I am re-thinking this and may just lengthen it as I did 40 years ago the first time I chopped it.

But it's looking good anyway I look at it. I can get it up there and start my fun stuff!

Brian

Is there a particular brand of stripper you like. I hear most of them are not as strong as they used to be.

Funny you should ask because I have bought both Jasco Premium and AirCraft stripper over the years both doing a fine job. But when I went to get this gallon I noticed that the Jasco was $26 and the Aircraft was $48! I figured this is old lacquer and not a real big deal so I went with the Jasco, did a damn good job, no complaints that's for sure. I may pickup a quart of the Air craft and do a test side by side. Goodness knows I am going to need more to strip the rest of the truck.

Looking at your pictures it looked to me like it was really lifting it up well.

I did not get a lot of shop time today but I did finish my frame bracket and started another body mount. I still have to finish welding the one Tim made. Maybe I will wait and do that after I finish this one and do them both at the same time.

I wanted to finish the frame bracket before I put this Easy Grind wire on the welder just in case it has less tinsel strength. Also, I would like to butt weld 2 pieces of 18 gauge with both wires and test the grinding, cracking, and malleability characteristics of both. I will post those results when it happens.
