Spent a little time out there yesterday, that hood is kicking my butt! I wish had saved the spare I had just to look at. Or I wish I had a Goodguys show every weekend that I could run over to and look at trucks. This hood bracket and hood are just wild. I may be other thinking it, but damn it's kicking my butt!

Yep, just looking and figuring and thinking how, and what is happening, I am a bondo dude not a geometer. Damn this stuff changes the geometry of stuff you had no idea it would. I figure something out and then I am thrown another. I think I am there where I can get something done over the next few days.

Thats a good ol big un, dadgum! Makes me wonder what it's motivation is. Must be the quick warmup. Make like Tonto some day and track it when it leaves to find out where it lives. I had one get into the outdoor unit of my A/C a decade ago. It coiled up right around the terminals on top of the big capacitor and when it kicked on, BZZT!

Have not had central air since then and when its hot outside you can still catch whiffs of electrocuted snake in the backyard. Yuck.

LOLOL, CRAP, I haven't even gotten to that stage! I am just seeing how the hinges move in hitting the sides of the cowl when I tighten the bolt on the top holding the two together. And the braces are too close to the underside of the hood on the outer top. It's crazy, I have rolled stuff around in my head over and over and I thought I had all the answers then more popped into my head!

The last few nights I haven't even been getting out there to really do something as I am just tired.

Entertain the option of hacking out the hinge area of the cowl and fabricating the whole mess.

My day has consisted of dropping off the trailer I borrowed to haul the Harley to TX last Feb. Ity's been a wet spring here and the owners yard gets soft and he didn't want it rutted up. No biggie, I have acreage to store it outside.
Then I continued on northwest ward to retrieve all the Camaro sheet metal. Great day for this. Yesterday, the forecast was for occasional showers this AFTERNOON...yeah right. I got to the blasters at 10:30 and it started raining and has quit yet... I have a topper on the truck, but the rear glass seal is junk and leaks. I was prepared for this and brought a tarp to put over the parts and moving blankets around everything.
Some of the "everything" was the next stop at the painters to pick up all the loose parts and deck lid, which I got to load in a drizzle..
Anyway, I made it home safe and the parts are all dry, they just don't get to come out of the truck until I have a warm, sunny day to rinse and dry them.
Now, I am waiting for 3 pm to take the little pooch to the vet to see if they can determine why he is acting so strange and wouldn't eat yesterday. I think he has another bad tooth, that will cost several hundred dollars to extract...

You're just living up to your username, as do I. Although I should make mine plural, I drove all three junks today.

Nothing to report so you get to hear this... made a weld last week, slung the part you hold over one knee. Had too much hot wire sticking out, stuck it in my other thigh. A quick ow and the only other thought I gave it was hmm that hurt. Once I got home and dropped pants, oh... better take good care of that! So here I sit, still bandaging it for another day or so. Boy howdy, hot metal makes a nasty stab wound quick even if it is .030.

Yupper, and it cauterizes it on the way in. I stuck a 3/32 welding rod in my leg once that I was O/A welding with. No blood, No Nothing, Just a perfect 3/32 hole in my leg about an inch deep and a lot of pain.

Oh yea. It stunk too..........
