I used to do a lot of electrical work for Henry Co. out on Columbia Blvd. and they made lots of asphalt roofing products.

The photo looks pretty funky, funny, I am thrilled with how it looks when I am looking at it. :D Tonight, first I had to mow the lawns. It's going to rain like a cow pissing thru a pole bridge tonight and tomorrow and my lawns were looking real bad. So after that I still got out in the garage for some quality time with my Gran Sport. Working on detailing my console and kick panels. I need to go get a few bulbs tomorrow. You need to pull the console to get to the tach light so I am going to be sure to have a nice new one in there.

One thing I found kinda sucks, I am ready to get this all in and I found that the shifter "slider" plastic thingie got broken in storage so I am going to have to get a new one or make something up from some plastic material. I have been wondering what I could find here in town and it just hit me as I am writing this, a cheapie three ring binder. You know the ones with the paper thin plastic covers, I am thinking that material is perfect. Think I'll head on down to the store and get one. of course I am thinking about a binder that we had 35 years ago when I was in school, do they still make them that way?

I saw that they had "PeeChee" folders still the other day so hopefully they have what I am looking for.

Whooo Hooo, I got the console in! The console, the sill plates and kick panels including cleaning them up and painting them and some work on the seats to get them in tomorrow.

And Check out how my idea on the shifter slider thingie worked out great using a three ring binder. :D

Whooo Hooo, I love seeing that tach in there. This is looking more like my old Gran Sport every day.

Brian, that looks very clean, nice work!

matts37chev 03-31-2012 10:58 PM

worked 1/2 of the day, building big raised planter boxes out of some plastic drums I cut in half, for the mother-in-law

ever since the father-in-law passed in 2007, we have been helping the mother-in-law with her garden (which means my wife now had 2 gardens to take care of)

so now this year she is getting a major down-size, and wont have to bend over to take care of her veggies

pics tomorrow when I finish them :thumbup:

I don't know about you, but something like painting the room over at my M-I-L's house (she passed away this last June) is the least I can do for my wife. She puts up with me after all! She deserves a Prince and all she got was the Jester. :drunk:
