Default Re: What did you do yesterday...

I got home from work yesterday and did a bit more work on the ramps. I picked up some scrap steel from work and welded together some ends. I just need to bolt them to the wood and weld together some mounts for the rear of the trailer.




Then last night I went to see my friend Jays punk band (The Prozacs). They kicked ass!! Also right in the middle of one of the songs Jay stopped the music and proposed to his girlfriend who was singing back-up vocals. To say she was supprised is an understatement. Even her parents who were there had no idea. It was an awesome night!

Yesterday I put the fuel pump back into my car, and plumbed lines so I could move it out of the garage...


Then I spent five hours cleaning it.

The garage that is!!!

And I still don't have it where I want it yet. Gotta sort out all the tools and get them back into the boxes.!

Been waiting on my Rings all week and guess what? Called and Bitched at the Post Office (tracking said it has been in this PO for two days) only to be told SURPRISE, they have have a box. I get it about 11:00. When I open the box it is ONLY the Exhaust! No Rings or Gasket Set! Was planning on getting the Motor built and ready to install this weekend.

So this is what I got done. Tin bead blasted and painted. Cylinders honed and Pistons striped of old rings.

Suposed to rain Mon and Tue. Rings susposed to be here Mon. Maybe by next weekend.

Yesterday I managed top convince my dad to loan me money till my tax refund got here. I then proceeded to drive halfway across the state of GA to pick up a motorcycle. Good day minus the paper and two tests I need to get done...

after work I welded up holes and grinded & stripped metal, thought I'd go out for St. Patrick's day afterward but just wound up passing out... lame, but us Germans drink all the time and not just on holidays so I guess it really didn't matter :)

Nice! I have always liked those style of lights.

I finished my other taillight mount, made a brake resevoir mount, and cut my windsheild frame off so I can fix it and make it a little better proportion.
