So the trailer and road trip is just to get the bumpers screwed on?

Speaking of which, my thoughts and vibes go to Mitch today, making that haul and with new but unknown trailer and all his Chevelle eggs in one basket. Could turn into a white knuckle nail biter in many ways. Unless we all think positive.

I am writing from the Model J seat, thinking is better here even if just in the yard. Keep stonewalling against my own limits on what to do about the GTP. Factors to consider are too numerous and I can't come up with anything fully viable. Just stating relevant facts exceeds attention spans, let alone typing out solution thoughts.

But its niceish out. Clouds but no carb priming.

Also gotta achieve new work task exuberance by morning and know what to do when I hit the shop door.

Need to do a couple renderings for people too. Anybody able to measure a 58ish Fairlane tail light? I can use license plates as size reference but would like more accuracy. Don't know where one is to look at.

Hell with it, time for Groceries with Grape. Maybe I'll see one or witness an epiphany.

Guy at work was going to scrap his envoy. I offed him a couple hundred and picked it up today. Thing has 127k with what I believe is the rack leaking internally and a drivers window that wont go up.
But the 4wd works and 4200 sounds healthy. I am going to play with it for a couple of days before putting it up for sale as a whole. If it wont sell as a whole I will tear it down for parts.






Used my fathers old tilt trailer.
No brakes, No suspension, Absolutely NO highway (in case it starts to sway due to not being centered side to side). But it works better then it should as long as your load is positioned correctly and you go slow.

Not exciting but I have to prove I am actually spending time on my truck or I will get beat up. I got the running board and apron finished up tonight, onto the next fine tuning, the passenger door.

In case anyone was wondering......
Surgery on Friday morning was complete success. Was discharged from hospital late Saturday afternoon. Zero pain, no issues. And huge improvement in both appearance and function.

Have an appointment tomorrow (Monday) to be fitted for new ostomy appliances now that things are 'normal sized" again, and I no longer need custom built stuff.

Didn't think it was. Just sayin if its pix he wants theres plenty fer everbuddy. But once you've seen one fat fender truck or prewar coupe, you seen em all.

I got that door to go in the hole on the white one and they started the crated 5.0 for a moment. Dang if it didn't come set up to add gas and run right there on the crate.

That long black cloud came back today. Trusses arrived today and when the crane went vertical it froze up. The driver spent 3 hours trying to get the crane to work and it was still stuck vertical. Finally after they nsent the crew away the driver found his problem. It seems a overide stitch was flipped in the wrong position. a flip of the switch and it was fixed. The foreman and 1 worker came back to set the trusses on the roof. The foreman said they will be back tomorrow at 8:00am and set the trusses and sheet the roof. Just another day in paradise!!
