What does the bottom side look like can you turn it over.
It's painted white so I won't explore that. A lot of work to only find something that's possibly not good.

Today I winterized both travel trailers. Gettin' a tad chilly out there, so it was time to admit that I wasn't gonna need them for camping any more this year.

6 gallons of RV anti-freeze later - now time to "gift wrap" them for winter (install RV covers)

It's all a blur now but what an amazing crib!
Thanks.

Small office for Dad.
It's about 11' x 7'.

I put the boat away yesterday. Was trying to hold out for a last fishing trip.
Lousy weather though.

It was a tight squeeze into the backyard. I didn't allow for the eaves trough downspout. About 2" on each side clearance to get that sucker squeezed into the backyard.

Really, I thought I did a hell of a job on the things I have done, it looks like a damn dog house next to Pugsy's stuff, damn.

Then out came something like a floor polisher almost, to flatten it when dry. Then buffing or a sprayed clear. Just curious and rambling. I know we will see how you do it. I have put Autoclear on rifle stocks before, for a showy finish. But I use car stuff for everything.
I made a cross for the front of our church from pine and stained it dark walnut. After I was sure all the solvents had evaporated out of the stain , I used my HVLP gun to spray on three coats of polyurethane. I let that dry for a couple days and then lightly sanded with my D/A with 320 grit to smooth it back down from the fuzzys that came up. Then sprayed three more coats of clear polyurethane. It is super smooth and beautiful.

One day when I think of it , I'll show the three mirrored shadow boxes that I made for my wife to display her glassware. My wife's brother wanted me to build one for him , I quoted him $800 . He thought I did it for fun . I said no, I did it for your sister out of love. Any one else will pay for the materials plus labor.

I'm definintely with you on that , pugs. A satin urethane will be much easier on the eyes.

I spent a good part of the day fixing a lawn sprinkler issue, it kicked my butt. I went into the garage after all that to put some tools away and I was giving it up for the night. I saw my door there, damn, I made some welds on the patch panel and that was it, but I got something done.

Made the center section of a patch for the tail end of a 59 Pontiac trunk floor. The end ones will be curved but don't have the crazy vertical contour.

Well I tried it.... bought ez efi installed first on old school 350 mild cam. Set and go had a edelbrock 1406 on it dyno it gained 21 hp and 33ftlbs torque. Didn?t really believe it so pulled off my Holley 750 off my 383 which checked it previous tune one week ago and dyno. After install did 3 consecutive wot. For it to learn. Ran dyno gained 26 hp and 38.6 ftlbs torque. Have to say very surprised and impressed may increase more with more wot running. What are your thoughts?
