Default The Rebuilding

I should probably wait until March 15th to start cutting, that would be 10 years since the very 1st time I drove it, I know I put at least 40K miles on it, maybe more

So I finally got it into the garage, I'm gonna cut it apart and make it how I want, I will probably start on it March 1st. I still have to straighten up my tools, then the madness begins

I cut some sheet metal, I just haven't cut on the Volksrod yet, I still need to bend it


Then I got distracted

I was given a bunch of lights and I'm putting them up in my garage, 2ft by 4ft 6 tube florescent lights, I have 11 of them, I hope I never need more



My wife says it's super bright at night, I still have 3 more to hang

I put up a few lights, now I can see, I'm trying to make a shadow outside on a sunny afternoon

So I started to make a panel for the back of my Volksrod, 3rd try and I'm happy with the results so far, I have a long way to go

Made another panel yesterday, finished April strong, Lets see where May takes me





One more piece to make, after I get it welded in I can brace the body and start cutting on the roof, I may drop the body a few inches as well

Well I've had some misfortune, my transplanted kidney stopped working and I spent a week in the hospital, I'll be doing dialysis 3 times a week and hopefully my kidney starts working better, if not I'll be looking at another transplant, either way I knew this day was coming, 20 years 6 months sure was fun, went by much faster than expected

On the bright side I started a tube bender so I can make a new chassis for the Volksrod, and after getting out of the hospital yesterday I'm ready to put the engine in my rail buggy, put the brakes on and hopefully drive it by next weekend IF I can stay healthy
