Really nice work - I envy your patience! I can't stand any type of body/glass/composite work. Yours is coming along!

Thanks Randy, I actually do things 2 and 3 times to get it right, I'd called persistance.. patience, I save all that for EWR (Newark liberty)


Ok here's the update, I'm painting right now, so posting between coats, Tack coat is ON!.. waiting for it to flash.

So Wifey wanted a new security light above the garage. My car project occupies the garage, and she parks outside. So anything I can do to help her get on her way in the cold and dark is due payment for hogging the garage. Thinking, the new led security light was going to be a quick job was a poor assumption. I Found a bunch of rot in the sheathing and header, so that was a 3 day project I could have been painting.

The balance of December I found my self at a soil/turf seminar in toronto, home sick, home with sick kids, home with not sick kids on snow days, and Christmas and a visit with family.. all good times, really enjoying the kids at this age, there 3 and 5 and best buds. Little car and shop time.

Of the things that were achieved, exhaust 2.0 is done with the catalyst and muffler bearings installed. Stainless bracket I made, warped during welding, a pronounced gap could not be reduced with fasteners installed, so it was removed, trimmed, pulse welded on the back side and some careful hammering. Sits flush now.

Made an extraction fan for the shop. It doubles as a security blind, sits in a wooden enclosure. I open a window at the front of the shop, and it does a great job of moving air through the shop.

... hold the thoughts, time for coat #2

Could this really be the year it hits the road.

Excellent work as always.

I know if we had Winter here like you have and I was hogging the garage and making wifey park out in the snow I'd probably have to more than install a security light. :)
