Seems like a long time since I posted anything here, but it's really only been a few days. Our "old" house officially went on the market last Tuesday, but had been listed on the local realtors "coming soon" market for 3 days before that. We had SEVEN viewings the first day, 3 the next and 2 after that. One of the couples that looked at it on Wednesday made an offer on Friday and we sold it on Saturday. Full price, no contingencies or demands...yet. There is a home inspection on Thursday. I bought a new water heater tonight and need to get it in and operational by Wednesday evening. The old one wasn't up to code anymore and was 17 years old, so I may as well do the swap myself and save the labor. They also are able to do a quick close...5 weeks, which means I need to get my arse moving and get the shop empty, except I don't have room for it all. Today I rented a 10x24 storage locker to fill and then bring the rest here. We spent all day last Friday and yesterday, STILL getting personal items out of the house and garage and there is another trailer load and then furniture to move out of the house yet. GOOD GAWD, we accumulated a LOT of stuff in 19 years...
On my new building, I had a surveyor out today to establish the property lines and where the building will sit to get a permit. I am strongly considering extending it another 8 feet to 30x48, to accommodate the 2 lifts better. Only another $2,500 for that, so may as well.

Things are still moving along at a breakneck pace, but it will all fall in place in another 8-10 weeks...

I do understand the dread of the inspection. My house was in super condition and didn't think I would get away scott free. They always find something. I missed that as there was a bidding war going on on mine and to finally stop the insanity and told this young couple they could have it at list if they waived the inspection requirements so he could do the the inspection but I was not doing anything the inspection wanted. As it was the gov dinged me for not having a carbon monoxide sensor outside each bedroom. and Take Note of this was they dinged me for not having an approved UL Listed double tie strap on my water heater. No Longer will they accept a bent coat hanger or even plumbers strap. Gotta BE UL Type... That is all I had to do and that was more safety related but well worth it to keep people safe.

A quick thing about inspectors, They will flip every switch open every faucet check every drain and run for a short moment every appliance. He also is allowed to take the cover off the electrical panel and look but not touch. (Darnit) Good luck and congrats on the quick sale sounds similar to mine. Good luck.. BTW My prints are being drawn up and will go to the engineer in 3 weeks, Then 2 weeks after that apply for the building permit which takes around 30 more days then dig and build.. I went to visit the T the other dAY and I need to get bare steel covered like now. Got rust forming on the shiny sheet metal stuff. I may bring the T home here and squeeze it in this crackerbox garage..Gotta PickleX the bugger..

By all means , make it bigger. You'll never regret it if you do, only if you don't.

Well, he came by this afternoon to take a look at the '65. Turns out he has a '68 firebird with a 389, 4 speed and 3.90 posi, and he's looking for a retirement project. He's thinking about it, and will get back with me.

The GTP no longer leaves a lake of evap case water, making oil and PSF slurry on the garage floor which pools up on the cement in the exact spot my foot has to step when I get in or out. Has not had a hint of high engine temp since compressor delete, and yes of course, it seems to have a nice zing to it now. Blah blah fwdposbs, um... aha! Here. This was I think Sunday. Everybody be sure to get your rip-snorts in no matter how fast the world is moving. Even if you have to jam them in edgewise between your other doin's. Pick your spot and floor something until you grin. Its important!

Bottom of right front fender at rear..... correct.


The fun begins soon of taking the welded mess and trying to get it all into the correct shapes.

About the only thing removed there was a bumper cover. Once you find all the hidden lock pins, about 15 minutes.

Yard is all staked out, plans drawn and all pertinent information needed has been submitted for a permit. 30X48...

My wife is concerned that if I fall over, if she can sell this place and get her money back. She doesn't think there will be many people interested in all these buildings... I told her she won't have to sell...there will be guys knocking on the door, asking if they can be her new husband...

These clips make me nervous. Is there a special tool required to pop them loose?
I've never removed a bumper without using a spanner before.


All I know is plastic stuff breaks so bloody easy.
