yesterday I replaced the old hub and brake drum on the passenger side of my car, drove it around to make sure it was okay, and then went skating. Took a friend to the hospital while skating because he broke his foot. Went skating with other friends. Took another friend to the hospital with a concussion. Decided to call it a night.

Now that it's past midnight, I can say that yesterday I did some tuning on the engine of the square, straightened a dent I had caused on the rear fender, and welded/filled the hole where my radio antenna used to be. I'm probably going to have a friend that knows more about type 3's than me come over in the morning and help me get her running better. She's running a bit rough...

I finished the 'toon for Walt and tweaked btrghia's 'toon to make it more accurate.

I also washed and waxed my Squareback and changed the oil. While I was at it, I re-did all the connections at my remote oil filter to try and stop a pesky leak and I made a rock guard for the filter since it is right behind the rear wheel.

I ordered and got a TIG welder and Plasma cutter from Indiana Oxygen!! Thanks again Dan for the tip. After spending two days running a new 220 circuit in the shop I have made my first TIG welds. The thing is freakin' incredible. I have a lot of practice to do but the machine is just fantasic.

The plasma cutter is another incredible piece of equipment, never used one before but today it was buzzin' through 1/4" thick steel like butter. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/bowdown.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

Tropical storm Cindy blew down some limbs and did a bunch of damage, 200,000 people without electricity for over 24hrs. I also kept up with the news on Hurricane Dennis. Looks like the folks in Florida are going to get clobbered again.

Great news about Pistol Pete.... it won't be long he'll be back with us.

I started on changing the outer layer of the top for my '90 Rabbit Convertible. Started then dodged a thunderstorm that never really happened Sun came out right after I had the car covered [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/yelling.gif[/img] Finally got the cover on, need to do the final fitting and cut and install the rear window tomorrow. I know, I know, it's not an air cooled VW, but it's my new daily driver so it has to have a good top. And it will probably never see the inside of the garage, it's reserved for the Beetle and the Notch

I got to feel like an ass. Been trying to sell a tranny for a couple of months. Lots of "interested" parties, but no one "for sure" firmed up. Saturday I get a call from one of those parties, who said they were ready to cme get it and could be there in an hour. Cool. Sale done.

Yesterday, I get 4 calls from other "interested" parties asking when they could come and get it. Felt like an ass telling them, "Sorry, but no one firmed up so I sold it to someone else." Two Volksrodders included. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wacko.gif[/img]

Yesterday I managed to create more problems than solutions.

But, no pain no gain.

At least I got to actually work on my Bug. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]
