………..See I never know where one of these will go…….I’m here til I can’t, grooming me maybe soon when everything hurts so much I let the young whippersnappers do that stuff and I sit and spit out obnoxious comments…….could b soon!
Until then we’ll keep up the fun. Other than an update on my contentious “IKEA kitchen”, I wanted to bang around to a few things quick to just maybe get a feel of the 3 ring circus I preside over….
……first the “restaurant kitchen” I think I’ll call it now because I think I may have projected a bad wrap on the look we’re going for. Has less to do….like I am showing you on the overall cost but rather the minimalist style of having a downsized restaurant kitchen look for your galley. You know….sit at the counter at any Waffle House and you’ll get the picture. Stainless steel, utility counters, exposed pipes, hanging pots and maybe a big ole stainless steel hood.
So the next phase was to finish the base in a waterproof, scratch resister, textured bright white surface. Prep and shooting the finish with 2 coats we will be able to wash and rinse the gally to the floor drain. Back into place we can get the first more clear picture of where this project is going next is securing the utility legs, connect the drain and catch then plumb in the sink.
From there, lower storage and overhead updating will happen. Something like this also progresses 1 thing fitted, finished and installed at a time with a pile of think time to try and cut down trial and errorStill a pile of creative work to get to the end …..time is money but hey, it might look interesting!
Ok, as promised lets move on……had a guy fly in to Florida for a little vacation and wanted to stop by….guess for some its Kennedy Space Center, Epcot and the Co-op……..but our $10 parking is over night with 50amp service on pavement! Cheapest place to hunker down in Florida! Andy’s son Tim from Switzerland was here with a friend for a couple of weeks……they went to Key west with their coach……$171 a night for a crappy RV spot….they were asked to move from a parking spot on the road by an officer …big bucks staying down here where is supposed to be warm…its 44 in Orlando this morning….I’m wearing ALL of my clothes!
So this guy comes in, show him around and his takeaway was “Usually you try to stay in the “box”…….they took you box away! A little more progress on the Mercedes motor stand…..the adjustable rear suspension is fabbing upStay tuned for sure and also watch what Jared has in mind with THESE custom made parts
And a rare 1973 double dinette floor plan refinished and set up for double beds…..hey, a GM floor plan forward twin bed set up….never thought of it that way.CHeck out that butcherblock countertop laminate! Marco’s fresh Honda EV-6010 is in the hole after an on the bench checkout….should fire up in place today…….
Hey and if we work really hard Ron’s fresh Co-op/Koba roller cam 455 may be the first to drive in the beast…Drew dropped Ron’s motor off just now before workHeyes and I dig his vintage short bed grocery getter! Opinions differ of course but I have to say the corroboration that came up with our cam profile and the low compression roller cam low RPM torque pump really wakes up our 12,000 pound hot rods….watch as this beast wakes up
See that…I just can be short here! Wait, 1 more pic and we’ll see ya tomorrow. Hey Chris, I filled this trash can
With stuff from here (ok, 2 pics)
