Yep I hear those Callbarrys are good. Maybe John can whip up some Callbarry pies later!

Whether or not it has been opened is the main thing.

Speaking of fresh chow, I would like to report that while paper goods are still unobtainium and many other goods are in short supply... there was lunch meat and some bread and milk this morning. Taking that as an indication of cool heads, as the public seems less frenzied than Friday. Light traffic and cheap gas are something I can make use of and theres enough of everything to go at the work week full blast. Beyond that comes then. I wish you all minimal drama.

I know this isn't my "Truck" but it's what I worked on today.
It's what I call "Memory Art." This is the head stock off the first guitar my mom bought me with blue chip stamps. It was a cheepie thing that didn't hold up well and the body collapsed on it. Wasn't worth fixing but I stored it for 50 years! When I moved I decided I would do this and I cut the head stock off and threw the rest away. This is why I am big on the "Memory Art" instead of storing stuff like this up in a box in the attic get it out, display it! See it every day and smile instead of it being a burden make it a good thing! Check out the 1970 license plate registration sticker, is that hilarious or what! My dad was a car salesman and we changed cars often that my mom drove, we ended up with a sticker that wasn't used and I stuck it on my guitar. The Logo had fallen off years ago so Dorothy the house artist painted the little "M P" in the same font the "Melody Plus" guitar had on the sticker in the body that I also had saved. Anyway, I love it, and it's on display in my living room where it belongs.

Brian

Loaded up the aluminum from a pool I tore down a couple days ago to take to the metal recyclers tomorrow.

With that out of the way I went to work setting up my container for oil and some shelves. Moving in during the winter meant stuff was just tossed into the first stall to get it in before the temps dropped into the negatives.
I am getting to the point where I have started going through all my boxes and organizing stuff. Chipping away at it 20 hours a week over the next couple of weeks and I will be ready to start tearing rides down and building rides from the parts once summer hits.

I had to adjust the front arms to come around underneath. Need space to weld and add another set of body mounts to the front of floor. The factory had four mounts at the front so I will match what they did.

I moved in October too and the new pole building was half the size of the one I was leaving. After I got as much as I could in it, I jammed the rest in a 10x24 storage locker. I did get another pole shed put up in November, but the weather here still isn't nice enough to start moving stuff out of the locker. That is a disaster and will take a month to empty.

That is good to see. Looks like a whole car now.

Will the mounts conclude the main body shell fab?

Did you make everything straight like you like as you went? I always think I'll have the opportunity for a final massage round but they usually gotta move on as soon as fab and repair is all in place.

Ya, it's flat. Just the rocker on one side hangs down 5/16" more than the other. No one can see two sides of the car at the same time, so no worries.
