little custom dash piece for AC for the 55 Chevy I bodyworked a while back. Mert did a great job fabbing this up. Only needed some 120/180 grit and primer. Even this little dinky part has to be cut flat and rubbed. Good fun here and this is placed in the sweet spot in the booth, or the no dust zone.



the wife is really happy right now I finally sold The Mustang. I really want to do a little splurging but I think I'd be better off paying off my credit card, getting a new one, and then putting a couple hundred on the newer lower interest card.

This is something I won't see very often.

2 years ago, I counted out 110 of those on a kitchen table when I bought my street rod. The guys wife was nearly in shock. She had never seen that much cash in her life. I think she counted them 3 times ...

LOL. I sold my 57 Olds at a car show and walked around all weekend with a roll of 165 hundred dollar bills in my jeans pocket. I could swear my pocket was transparent and everyone could see that roll of money. Just a really weird feeling for a poor working man.

Congratulations on the sale Henry.

makes you paranoid a little. I once had 30k in all hundreds hidden in my Isuzu Rodeo. I was very paranoid. An old boss gave it to me to keep hush about something he did. Two weeks later I give him 23k back and told him I didn't want any strings attached. The rest of the money must have disappeared somehow. I figure now I'm gonna get some real embossing dies from Hoosier, a HF english wheel, and a couple different knicknacks like a flexible rulers and maybe one of those fancy shape gauges with the knobs. Those are soo cool.

I was planning on taking it to a friend's warehouse to finish it off but he never has room and just brought in another car so I got sick of waiting, or my wife got sick of waiting.

I started on my steering wheel, and picked up a second compressor. I plan on
twinning the two compressor stations. One is 3 gallon, 2hp. This is 20 gallon 1.5
hp. Total twinned air at 4o psi is 12.5cfm, at 90 its 10.5cfm. That better be enough air.

When I sold that 57 Chevy for my friend I had $15k hidden in my attic. He ended up living in my camp trailer for over three years, never got his act straight and when I gave him that money he went thru it in about a month living at a hotel.

What a shame, what a damn shame.

Sooooo, "What did you work on today" you ask? How's this?



Does that tell you what I did this evening?

That and running to the UPS store to ship a dropped axle I sold on ebay only to have them tell me it had to be wrapped. Even though two different people there had told me it didn't need to be. GRRRR

( This observation was based upon conditions found in my personal sink after washing my own personal trotters and in no way implies that people living in the Bay Area have hoofs that are exceptionally grungy. Nor does it imply that people living in the Bay Area ever wash their feet, both living and dead, whether for personal entertainment or to satisfy local pollution control laws.)

So help me God.

I wish someone had told me about these wheels smelling when you sand them. I dremeled it last night and glued it. Today at work I smelled burnt rubber in my truck. On site I smelled burnt rubber. Everywhere I smelled burnt rubber. I clued in just before lunch it was my jacket, plus maybe my boots.

I ran home at lunch and showered and changed clothes and tossed on an old pair of work boots. Man I stunk!

Tonight I sanded the glue and spot puttied it. Then I played with my dogs. Wheel Should be like new soon!
