123pugsy Working on headlight pots still. Used the template to cut out a hole for the wire grommet, for the new halogen bulb.

Man, I sat on that zinger a long time waiting for the next d'oh post. You don't mess up much.

It has to be kind of exciting getting back to that area of the car. Get your licks in now before DD (as Dave sez) turns the shop into a paint facility.

She did such a good job on that FD card, I wonder what her new stylized vision of the Camino looks like. Fire out open headers and wheelstanding, y'know.



For now, DD just wants to see red with white hood stripes....phew....she didn't mention about cutting the car in half yet, to get more leg room.....that'd be tough over one winter.

By then, the sun was roasting us, so we quit that task and went in the shop to hang insulation. Today, with the cool weather and no sun, we got-r-done.

Before pic, right after the hot tub went away.
Perfect! The cool snap and big deck.

Glad you found room to run and made headway.

Thanks. There were 16 rows, 9' long, missing and I bought 16, 16' sections to use for that purpose. We agonized over and, actually, planned out ALL the joints before ever cutting the first board. I had to work from the railing back toward the house and the last row, we needed to push a 14' section into place from the open end, getting the slots on the fasteners and a 10' section last , standing on a ladder outside the deck. They went in far better than I was expecting and look very good, for a fill in job..

And some people accuse me of being a "perfectionist".. ..pppppfffftttt. You would have done the same...

idrivejunk I regret Bogarting the thread but today was a Grand Three so must report all is well on the Prixs. As can be expected. I only used them like cruisers. We can dissect that word further in the noun context if y'all want.



End of the day, I gotta tell ya I wonder how he is feeling. Mornings are probably better to ask.

Hope you guys are getting some of the pretty days I ordered, they got here. Looks good ahead.

Don't forget the little bit you'll gain in the fill and coatings phase. High five on the rings staying snapped on. Tell some tool truck guy you have Snap-On headlight bezels, that'll confuse them and amuse you.

Too Many Projects The summer has been VERY busy for me. I'll post a compilation of shop upgrade pics that have been going on over the past few weeks. I bought a 6 foot wide roll of 6" fiberglass a couple weeks back and have hung most of that in the wider spaces I created with 2x6 "studs". The original posts are 9 friggen feet between instead of the traditional 8, so the insulation install has been a bit frustrating. I wanted 4 rolls of the same stuff in 48" wide but no one stocks it and it takes 2-3 weeks to get it in store, so I contacted the manufacturer and bought it direct. I had to drive 360 miles round trip to get it on Thursday, but we have already used most of one roll, and what's 360 miles in 5 hours to a goofball, former truck owner/driver .. The rolls are so large a diameter that one got to ride shotgun in the backseat.
Been HOT and HUMID too. The temp at shoulder level has been around 90+ in the building with temps around 120 at top of the wall height... To say this process has been miserable is an understatement, BUT, I chose to do this and need it done, so I drink a gallon of water and then sweat it right back out.

The infrared tube heater was delivered Friday too and I'll be ordering the ceiling tin this week. Need to keep on keepin' on...

idrivejunk Brian is going to have a light skirmish with our enemy then return to civilian duty as many active folks like him have.

Half of everything is imagining the prayers have already come true.

Now then. Regarding MARTINSR and The Hood (is that a band?), a thought flitted across my path this week when I saw a 46. I kinda dig the '46 Chevy hood arrangement. Off to plow another furrow, with that seed planted. Or unread, whatever will be.


Prime riding around evening here. Took my old usual route on a wild hair. Been quite awhile. Out by where I painted two Chevys a decade ago at a buddy's place on the old this end of the ancient truck route to Tulsa. Grape is tired, boys. Negligence, loss of rodding interest. Curves out there so I was feeling the slop. Accelerator pump toast, etc. Why buy a carb for twice what a 6.0 costs? Ugh.

So theres an old hwy 68 pic and one other that would make a desktop. Kinda abstract.
