Yeah, let ya down again ….but there was a descent reason, it was my 45th graduation party. Yep, I’m getting to that age that looking back covers a pile of ground. And the thing that struck me was all the people still were filling the shoes they used to. One of the movers and shakers back then really did a great job of planning things that seemed impromptu. The leaders were still leading, the quiet one were still that and I was that guy that ran all the time. Can’t run anymore but it was nice they remembered.
Anyway, Janie & I got back from Jacksonville yesterday and I walked into a dimly tuned instrument working along. I’m referring to the guys out back making things happen maybe better than when I’m here! Either way it felt good seeing the team doing their thing.
Behind the Ford truck we had restored is the Tailgater coach that sold Monday……a really cool machine we build over 15 years ago. .I’ll b taking the For Sale ad down today but if you want to read up some background on this coach then watch as we bring it back to the road, go take a look.
Delivery is coming up on this Airstream project. There has been no guess on when it would be done. This close to finish now we feel it will be ready to go home Thursday.
..We’re having the exterior graphics reproduced .but the rest of the exterior will keep its original patina. The real work was on the interior where Jared and the guys completely built an all new interior in that aluminum egg. .Textured ceiling and wall with Avonite counters. . I tell you this was a fun project like the coaches. I know we’ll build more…in fact.another 1 may be coming in today, stay tuned.. ..We’re making room here next to the Full restoration there with the rear cap off for a very special project finally getting thru out “Q”. You gotta see this one. Lemme give you a hint…..well maybe a spoiler report…..remember the Urban Assault Vehicle from the movie Stripes? Well, were gonna build one! Yep, and you guys can watch the whole transformation. Waiting until everything is ready and all the stars are lined up…..I just can’t wait to dive into this one! As I’ve said before….stay tuned... The sunset was awesome at the beach this weekend. Having time to actually deprogram, I’m enjoying my weekends and I think having 3 days is showing in the guys work..
Alright, the day is on, for me too. Lets everybody get out there and have a fun day…..see ya tomorrow…
