Today is being spent in "restoring" a lotta stuff, now that my computer is back from the shop after a total hard drive failure. New HD - 1 Tb this time,, plus an external 2 Tb drive. The shop was able to "rescue" most stuff that was on the old drive, but I have also lost a bunch and the other stuff is now stored in a folder simply called "old stuff". Putting programs back on, trying to find the data that I need for work stuff.

Last couple of weeks were not kind to computers - my laptop had a MoBo failure and the desktop ate its hard drive.

After this experience I am beginning to understand the concept of storing stuff "in the cloud"

I did weld up one of my body mounts at the B pillar but that is the extent of my productivity.......About 20 minutes in the shop.

Just returned last night from the Eagle Field Nostalgia Drags near Firebaugh, Ca.! Long 12 hr. drive each way, but well worth it! The old time flag starts were great fun, and lots of great old cars running Saturday! This what drag racing was like back in the day, and everyone was having fun!

blocking primer on the GTO Judge. This thing is fun to block on cause you'll have plenty of separate planes to sand on due to its many crazy angles. The Durablock Teardrop is a great block for this car. It's working great on the fender tops and up high on the fenders where it has that little channel going in riding right below the peak. I was able to edge in a regular 10" dura for the doors. Can't wait to see this in paint! One more round of 2k and the painter will soft block it and paint.

Looks well built. Is it a trash pump for moving water ?? 30hp should move plenty of volume.
