There was none involved in cleaning the gutter, mashing that flashing back down, then doing some fixing to the gutter from out front. Not that there wasn't the opportunity with my slipshoddy workmanship and sidways photo shoot.
Anyhow, got that did. Ladder didn't kill me, leastwise today. Now I wonder if it works for the attic.

Building suspense, eh Pugsy? Got it. Doesn't help.
When she is in the shop area, I would be calling her Dolly already.
Since the chassis got a dab of mention, I'd like to jam my foot in the door and blurt:
Have you considered how little work it would take at this stage, to go subframe(s)?
That one has burned in my mind.

I'm sure my daughter will come out and hold the dolly for me. As long as I can get blows from underneath, should be fine. I should have welded before installing the firewall.

Saving this gravy chassis job for the end. Gonna get me a nice chunk of sheet metal done first.

shh....I'm practicing for when I make a TV show....get the audience all excited like...ha....

But you always say stuff like that and never mess it up.
I don't see any reason why you couldn't adopt the mindset of:
"I will weld this on as best I know how, then decide if I messed up because I can fix anything that goes wrong and don't normally have problems. Plus I am the decider of what is finished."
|Today 08:26 AM|
Good stuff Pugsy. What did you do with the Stainless frame? Is the replacement frame ready for the body?
It is good to see you excited about the car again.
|Today 07:51 AM|
Welding done with a bit of clean up. Seam sealer should hide the ugly.
Got to go out and weld around the wiper bungs next.... ....this could warp the cowl to heck.

X pipe install
Things to know
Paper work said hour, reality 3. proly an hour if done once before. Me, 1 hour wrenching 2 hour familiarization course
Got lucky cause I notice the X pipe has a top side and bottom side, before the bolts right on happened.
5.5" rear cut is exact, space is tight, jocking the tail pipe into the rear of the X pipe. Not impossible just be prepared, for it to fight you some.
Use a torque wrench, makes a big difference in the way the clamps draw everything together.
Last: Advisable that it be done on a lift, I doubt this install is possible laying on ones back under the Mustang.

one more pilot pic
my old bondo light threw some red flags in our internal audit. I just bought another one on Amazon and surprised with how good it is for amazon
This was my last job of the week. On Thursday we watched a corporate video saying they were laying off 25% of the people, no more 401k matching, and no more overtime. So I did the right thing.... I took 2 weeks PTO starting Monday:
Kids are out of school til May a co worker is out with upper respiratory issues, a neighbor across the street is having upper respiratory issues, and although I have no fear of Covid-19, I have children. it was a relief to have my pto request accepted on such short notice. so it's homebound and hope I still have a job to come back to.

Yeah all that work and what do you have? An Acadia. But somebody gets their ride back and those are mighty popular. Last two crashed SUVs I worked on were real circus acts.
Ladder bars too short, scratch that. Started off in the wood pile hunting ladder components but then it hit me... I can do this in metal! Probably not before it rains or gets dark though. Replaced that garage door by myself on my 50th birthday. Have jigsaw, drill press (blades and bits are another matter entire), and square nuts. So I could do it in the garage I guess. Yeah, lots of screechy noises involved. Well, when I inherited these tins of bolts and such I was told they have 30s stuff in there. Recycling at it's finest. Also could be a reason to score a flux core welder. Nah. While I was out there, buttless 72 pic. I should air up tires and weedeat next mow. Dave I had knee high onions.
