I could never stand a mechanic that would throw tools.

I used to keep an old door behind the shop for those occasions when ya gotta explode on something. Works pretty good when used with a 3 lb mini sledge, and the idea is to see if you can rip the door skin first lick. Scream like karate. Hardest part is making it to the door before letting rip. Beats throwing a tool, but chunx fly so gloves and glasses.

The Chevelle chassis is ready to go to a club tech event where it will be stripped bare for powder coating. By this evening, it will be in pieces with nothing on the frame that isn't welded on...

Bought a 23 Tbucket. Looked good from 50' but the engine and tranny are new. Body had some issues but I knew I would want to make a few mods to it anyway. Large doors both sides, fenders front and rear, and a fiberglass box cover. The fenders are glass and widened to 19" to mount on to the box sides. Front fenders are steel trailer fenders from NT, just have to fabricate mounting brackets. The box lid I got from Speedway and had to lengthen 6 3/8", then it will be cut and hinged for access to the box and gas tank. Will be posting a build thread on it down the road a bit. Hoping to have it completed NLT Memorial Day. Seems like plenty of time, but being a 100% disabled Vet with about a worthless right side, everything takes longer.

Wahoooo! Wow! Oh boy! Great news!........

I fixed my Lotos plasma cutter! Believe it or not the air line/electrical feed connection had come loose inside the torch handle. I would not have bet a plugged nickel it would ever cut another piece of metal.

Cool beans!

All I've worked on today is sorting car pics from the last decade, and knocking down a fever.

My personal release is to vent a string of adjectives and nouns that would make the Seventh Fleet blush. Some tension releasing foot stomping and another round of vial language that if she were still alive would make my dear Mother wash my mouth out with a five gallon bucket of carburetor cleaner.
Then back to my toils.
