Today I got a new light up in my garage. Being all it has are two 60 watt bulbs in the middle of the ceiling this is a damn big improvement. But I am not kidding you, I think it's too bright! Damn thing burns my friggin eyes!

I also got a my guitar stand made today, you will see it doing it's job soon, don't try to figure it out too much.

Anvil Grandpa made aluminum boats and all his kids could buck rivets. So it is my heritage speaking when I say: Rivets. Cheap.

Me wants to ask if you ever wanted to dabble in fiberglass. But not picturing the right shape probably.

I agree and the rivets will allow a certain amount of flex without cracking the aluminum .

I didn't think of that but you're right... wind is probably a good thing to keep in mind on a shield like that.

If by ghosting you mean having a small dent or outie at each weld...

To me, in that location, I wouldn't give it much thought. Nor would I make much effort to conceal the fact that a row of welds exist there. IF they are noticed, they lend believability for the guy staring at the cubby and not wanting to ask if that was factory.

I think your best bet is zero filler there and let whatever primer doesn't fix slide. Because I don't doubt that some flexing will occur in the area.

PS Is that a roof leak puddle? I keep a spare engine under the shop roof leak but keep the welder way the hell away.

Dillhole!

(that means I am inspired by your neat little man-shrine there)

I'd love to whip my garage into shape like that, theres just so many things I don't know how to get rid of that I can't seem to start. And I need to, bad.

The leak is from the machine cooling system. Standing in a puddle while stomping on the pedal of the 550 Volt machine....oh yeah...


Primer fill, sounds good.

Yeah, that darn light was so cheap I was going to go get four of them today and hang them but damn it's blinding, need to re-think this.

How you doing David? Good to see you on here.

I did something worthy to the GT in the garage today. Rustoleum rescue.

Made a slot template for the tubes to get down to the tranny tunnel.
I also set up my frame table and leveled it. I sat the body down on it and only had one corner up 9/64". I used a drill bit to check. Laser level at rear of car shows the deck lid level when measuring from the bottom edge to the laser line. The rusty metal below doesn't count.....
