He grabbed a little die grinder for that exhaust pipe and without me saying a thing had his particle mask, goggles, ear protection on.

We have a number of rims, I'll look into welding them together like that.

You know what David, I have mentioned this before maybe you have heard my schpeal but I was very lucky at 28 to have a lady in a machine shop next door explain to me what the high frequency sound of air tools does to your ears. I started back then wearing ear protection, still not enough as my ears ring terribly but all I can think of is what would they be like if I hadn't worn them at all. Watching the guys at work destroying their bodies makes me sick. And it's all free here, the boss will give you ANYTHING you want to protect yourself.

What did I work on? Well - this actually yesterday, but

It involved an Owwie, Owwie, Owwie!

Went to put a battery charger/maintainer on my (for sale) 4Runner
Put the charger down on hood of son's li'l jeep while I went for an extension cord.
Found that a bunch of wasps had set up their home in the jeep and I had disturbed them.
Wearing a t-shirt, I got stung 6 times in about one second. 3 on left hand, 2 on right hand, one on right arm near elbow
In case you couldn't guess, wasps are not my all - time fave critters on this planet.
Luckily, I am not allergic or things could have been REAL serious as I was home alone at the time.

Went to the store, explained my issue, they asked what kind of wasp killer spray I wanted and I told them I want the kind that leaves a giant mushroom-shaped cloud!

Nuked the nests (3 of them!) last night and they're all gone now - sure was a lot of bodies laying around this morning!

This stuff i used makes a foam that covers the entire nest and poisons the li'l bastiches

Seems to work well, and you can zap the nest from 10 feet away, so it is LOT safer than a lot of the junk out there. Found 2 more nests in the wheelwells of my travel trailer today - so I nuked them, too.

Scream like a little girl and run (and toss my man card away) is my usual thing when I find wasps, hornets and other sting-y thingies, but bumble-bees and I have a mutual peace pact - which is lucky because we have a LOT of flowering plants around and they love to come and collect nectar. They buzz around to warn me off. If I still stay, they come and bump into me ("are you paying attention?") By then I have split, so it doesn't come to all-out war.

No wasps in my basement so I was able to install my deck lid and shim it some.

Good to have friends that will come by and lend a hand. Thanks Rodney.

I am still blown away by your idea on hanging the body, that was brilliant!

Crazy three days around here. I found a new foundation guy late last week and they showed up Wednesday to pour the footings. The guy phones me late the same afternoon and tells me they're coming Thursday morning instead of Monday for the foundation. I had to rush to set up the dozen sono tubes and cages so they could fill them up on Friday AM. They'll be back Monday to strip the forms. Hopefully, I can start to get some sleep again. Been going to work a 2 and 3 AM for the past three days.

Man that looks like a lot of work, my back & knees hurt just looking at the pics


Hell all I did was adjusted the hood, painted the master cylinder, fixed two headlights that were pointing to never-land, and cleaned up the interior a bit.
It just doesnt compare

never good when it's cool all week when you work then shoots up to 100 all weekend. One of those weekends. Looks like I'll start making a list for home depot to get materials to make my frame jig so I can finish off my bike frame. Real simple jig.

On Monday, I guess The Good Guys do some tour stops on the way to Pleasanton and they are stopping by our biggest customer's chrome shop, which boasts a nice car collection, some fantastic fabrication(whole bodies in raw metal) from the kid at Phantom works so we'll take off from work and join them. Sounds fun. Next year they stop at our shop, and have before.

Where did I miss you firing the original crew ???

Looks like this one means business...

I started a part time job at Menard's this week. Early morning stock boy. Up at 4:20 and to work at 5 am. Done at 9 am, so I have the whole day to work on other stuff...
If I save all my earnings, I'll be rich in 40 years..
