To say this was a good weekend here in Central Florida would be an understatement and a perfect reason to play a little hookie! There’s something about riding a Harley at Bike Week in Daytona and this is the first time I had the chance to do that. After fixing that “won’t start when I’m cold” attitude, I rode it to Daytona… traffic and all and had the great pleasure of “doing the loop”, that’s the scenic Volusia drive called the loop. Only a 40 mile run but through the low marshes on a winding road… it’s a hit. Yesterday coming back I went south on I-95 where folks fly low. I won’t say I was speeding but I will tell you this, the factory cruise control on the Harley will set at 50% higher than 60mph… math involved here…. Anyway I know I’m boring you non bike types…. sorry I just don’t get much chance to exercise the guys like this weekend
Oh, as soon as I got back to Orlando I swapped bikes for a blast around last night ….. twas part of the fun of it too. This mornings ride in with no windshield again reminded me I was alive but they say temps will be in the 70’s so the work should go well this week.
Last week was a good on itself… this was the first weekend outside for Fandango…. yes sir, with mechanicals about done it will be the finals punch list theis week and from there it’s off to the Summit Atlanta Intl. car show at Atlanta speedway next month…. Yep, another coach is leaving the dock soon…. stay tuned….
The glorious new chrome is on The generator compartment cleaned out, insulated and the Honda platform cut all we need now is the Honda EV-6010 Paul over at Pinellas Power Products is building for us… stay tuned for that….
On other news, Danavan is working Ross’s solid surface counter, we’re dong an undermount single stainless steel sink, an original blender and a 2 burner “Hi/Lo” lp stove top…. stay tuned for more on this one…..
The guys turned to and got that serpentine belt system off so this young man could get home…. good job guys! Yep so with that project gone the guys could focus on some other stuff like another holding tank install More to come on this one so stay tuned.
The thing I want you guys to see is things are moving along. It’s hard to keep things going when you have so much going through. The business part of this is you have to move work like this to afford a facility and workforce to do it. That’s the fun part of this… you can sit there and be mellow or you can get serious about it, thop the whining and get-r-done….. That’s what we do and the team we have makes that happen. Big difference!
In our upholstery shop Santos did a great job at reconstructing the original seat for one of the 2 78 Ford pickup’s we’re doing…. from this To this and guys, this is not a skin, it’s hand made! Andy, say goodbye to your primered coach… next time you see it the coach will be metallic silver . And Jose is sanding up a storm on JD’s front hood repair and I don’t know WHERE we’re going on this VW bus Hang around for that one too. OK, it’s daylight and I need to get out there. Please pardon my not posting the weekend but I had some living to do with Janie……… talk to ya tomorrow…
