Before delving into today’s subject, yesterday was a serious red letter day…. back from the booth… “Rock the Alps” is in color and clear Putting all the wheel bags back on, the coach will sit and cure for a day before wet sand and buffing. Stuff just gets everywhere in this process…. the more we cover the less we have to clean up! Ray has the accessories painted as well so soon we can start putting it back together. Stay tuned for more.
Fandango got it’s time on the lift yesterday working a pesky exhaust leak and an underside once over. Here it is lined up to take it’s spot back inside the main building …… Man, check out that awning!Working like mad little red ants, Phillip and Katelin installed a fresh transmission, his last recent build had a 2-3 shifting issue. As a precaution, we installed a new trans cooler bypassing the original…. just in case…… .Under it’s own power… hey reverse works! Now in “open water” and away from the dock (the lift), the Enterprise sets out on it’s seatest with Capt. Phillip at the helm Yeah, I know… stupid, it’s just that feeling you get…. is there a plug in the drain hole? Anyway, report is it hits reverse and all 3 go gears and stays in all 3…… YoHoooo! Joe L. gimme a call and come on over…. lets talk about getting the good ship over to your dock…
BTW, there’s been much discussion lately on Facebook about stopping roof leaks.
BTW, there’s been a discussion on Facebook recently about roof water leaks and what to do about them. The side rails are a very unique seal “system” and I want to do a Patreon video on this first thing this morning so lemme get this plunking here over with…
I’v had several people that have visied us shocked on the scope of what is going on. It kinda woke me up to something maybe that’s something I haven’t as yet conveyed? Well, maybe but I tell ya what…. humor me a minute and lemme walk you through coming to work this morning. Hey, folks have asked and maybe you can get a feel of being a part of this…. hey, that’s why we’re here, at least that’s why I’m here….
So after knocking out part of the curb to cmake it a speedbump….. here’s the main door of the world headquarters of Cooperative Motor Works, inc. The speed bump lets all the guys park out front… no room in the rest of the facility First in, Ralph just turned 366,000 miles…. can you tell we’ve bonded? So now I go in the front because I get the “business” out of the way first. The door to the “inner office” where I try and keep all that bad stuff I prefer to call it the closet in that it’s the only place I could hang a white dress shirt As you can see lavishly appointed this room is usually not on the facility tour so lets move on… I get that “Benesss” done and head out through the showroom/sitting /discussion room Hey, anyone wanting to build a badass 455… that’s an Offy, hi rise dual plane intake there on the shelf…. too exotic for me but a serious piece of nostalgic performance stuff… gimme a call ….but opening the door to the main shop just at dawn is an eary feeling The door to my “werkin” office to the right lets leave that dog sleeping for a bit…… the darkness opens up to one hell of a playroom Making way to the back more projects come out of the dark There’s Willie & Nancy’s coach tucked away getting ready to get back in the frey….. The VW camper is getting full mechanicals as soon as we get it up on the lift….. our bottleneck Heading toward the back door
The 79 Ford pu is about ready for the cab to come back and outside there’s Joe’s party wagon Spacely Yellow beast …. an open lift, now we can get the next slug of mechanical evaluations checked out and Ray bout has that big ole limo sanded and close to paint Then looking west into the bullpen it’s just a good feeling we’ve got the team… and the place so with John D. stretch acting as a coach as the cork in the bottle on the lot we start another day WOW, is this fun or what!
Watch Patreon later and we’ll see ya tomorrow…..
