Anyway, I am on my way to getting back to working on the truck. Still a little go do, need to have a 30 amp breaker added for my welder and need to make a "quiet box" for the compressor. Got some things today for that, going out there right now to see what I can do.

I was thinking about that. But believe it or not, I am not concerned about the noise in the garage, I want to keep it from the neighbors.

Got a lot done cleaning up, organizing, got the bench bolted to the wall. I will have my old vice soon, my brother is sending it to me. When I moved I gave it to his son, but I said I would like to have it so he is sending it to me. I bought it for my first house in 1979. Have to box up the compressor to get the noise down, that's my next real project. I am happy with it all, I thought I was going to do the compressor box but that got side tracked with the others stuff. But damn it looks so good and workable, lots of crap all over before.

If you can muffle the intake you can cut the compressor noise by more than half! A really GOOD air filter on the intake should do it.

Drive line, should have said suspension....kind of related.
I added link bars between rear control arm mount points and boxed the uppers. I had already boxed the lowers.
I brake torqued a bit and still had a bit of hopping....just won't do that then.....

Shoulda ordered these at the same time as the frame rods. This is what will eliminate the hop issue.

I put them on my buddies 535 hp '72 Chevelle with 5 speed and no more hop.

Yeah, everyone is doing "ok" I know it's hard and we all have some issues, but we are doing ok. This Corona thing hit us pretty hard, not a good time for it with us. But it's funny because back in California it would have been even harder I think. Anyway, for the most part we are loving it. Just some odd side affects.

I passed my final inspection for the shop wiring today. WooHoo! I managed to get all of the framing done along the back wall, insulation, and another piece of the OSB paneling installed. Long way to go...

But you are making progress and that's what counts...

I made a milestone today. I finished reinforcing the truss with the raised joist and cut out the center. Nothing fell apart and the roof stayed up...
