idrivejunk Hope they ain't the type to make you pee before getting medical attention if that ever comes up. You never know until a leg is hanging off. Then when your blood gets in the cup the claim gets denied anyhow because theres blood in your system.

I won't work for the high n mightys anymore.
Yesterday 11:10 AM
Too Many Projects Just got back from a scary expedition.... to the local hospital.. Nothing wrong with me, that I know of, just had to go donate for a pre-employment drug screen. I had my N95 mask with, but there were only a half dozen people in the clinic and we all kept a big distance. The doors to enter are pull handles, but have the old fart buttons to open by power, and I pressed those with my elbow to get in. Never touched anything once inside and pushed the doors to get out with my elbow. Came home and washed my hands...

Gonna get out in the yard and load brush on the trailer to haul to the recycling center, someday. I put the trailer in the new shed last week to keep it dry during the rain on Thursday and the snow on Friday, so it will be nice not to get wet loading it. The brush should be dry enough after 2 days of sun after the snow melted off Saturday. I NEED to get out of this house and breathe fresh air again.

False floor for the carpeting. figure out how to install the cubby cover.....steering column.... Seat mounting brackets.....A million little things and then epoxy.


After all that, hmm. Choose between playing with the doors or welding rear fenders to car....that is, after fattening them up about an inch and a half. Hopefully, I'll be able to get the wheels off then. Whoops, forget the doors. It would have to be chop top next before the doors and before them fenders get in the way of working on the roof.
It's good to see you are going to have it ready for paint this month. You will be glad to be driving it when this bug passes.

idrivejunk Great googly moogly. I stand ready to assist via editing shapes. Pretty sure I have a rear view of one to alter, and if you gave me a reference line in a rear fender pic, hey. We already had the roof conversations but if you get there and want to see something, post.

Whats next, Pugsy?

tech69 since I took two weeks off I decided to make my backyard funner so I got wood for a quarter pipe ramp for me and the kids. Of course after I get started I hear it's gonna rain for 3 days in a row. Greeeeeat! So now my new wood is getting rained on. Oh well. Also got some of the newer nerf guns for the kids. One shoots 8 bullets in a second. These are almost like paint ball guns now they're so powerful. We already had a full on Nerf battle at the closed down school and the kids really enjoyed that. Got masks, food, money, family, and no coughs. I'm gonna be in great shape when this is all over. One thing that bugs me, my community is balancing work with shelter in place, but the ghetto that neighbors us where lots of people don't even work and have it made during this situation, are out and about like everything is normal. I myself and am skeptical of the dangers but since I have kids it can never be worth that gamble to be wrong so as I step outside today to go shopping, it's in a p-100 pancake mask and latex gloves. Sad times.

idrivejunk This is what we have. Distancing is proving to be an effective weapon. I was practicing distancing all along, way before any of this came up so the adjustments have been minimal on my end. It will be wierd to wear a face mask without being in the shop though.

I work in the top left county and live in the one below it.

Us simple folks who ain't been locked down yet may be those who have actually taken the threat seriously, delaying or avoiding the need. More food for thought, thats all.



Need to get better figures over the next couple of weeks. Someone mentioned that the recovered cases are not being reported too much as they don't want to waste the tests. That's a good thing and puts the odds better. phew. If ever I was wrong, I sure hope it's on this.

They are a bunch of rare earth magnets piled up. They are easier to remove that way with miserable old dry skin fingers.
Singles need to slide to an edge to get it off. Of course when I went for my first tack, the rod kept getting pulled to the massive magnetic field created with so many of them.

I think accident might be the word. Yes, it stinks and I don't think this thread is the place to speculate on it. But I was "that guy" who started it by saying my boss passed out TP. I will shoulder all blame for thread contamination and self quarantine the talk as best I can. Need to mask up and go buy a week of food right now anyway.
