While it’s said and true a day from work is a good thing but right now? With the work load…..and everything else Heck, I’m still trying to get used to 3 day weekends! It was painful for all here and maybe a little out there not getting a daily pose fix…….sorry bout that but yesterday was a blurrrrr.
Texas Tux pull under its own few FiTech power up onto the lift for fuel lines and some final mechanical before delivery. And should be back into the big house for its final interior punch list.
This means it also graduation day for 2 new project moving into the Q to start their projects. These coaches have been patiently waiting their turn. Yesterday 1 of these 2 was pulled into position. Being trucked here, batteries dead…..the non spring loaded battery boost switch left one the battery was flat. That and the fact that it was fitted with one of the older (dumb) tho fuel injection systems we didn’t want to waste time trying to fire that Klydsdale horse saddled up. Nope the pull strap earned its pay. Hey Willie, looks like a Bobsy Twin 80’paint job to yours….and yes, the brown was painted on top of the tan……as yours was standings gonna be fun!
First for this puppy will be stripping the interior…….all of it! Yes…all of it….Why? Besides the project going for replacing the floor of course everything needs to come off the floor. Why? First it’s a 73…..GM didn’t have down installing the A frame driver/ pass. front windows. Chances were good we would find floor damage like this under those windows . and if it looks like this with the carpet on you KNOW what’s under it….yep. to include the walls. As Laurel and Hardy would say, “A fine mess you’ve got us in now!”. and as the pile in front of the door grew the Moore floor issues we found. Today I hope to introduce you to the next project intake.
BTW, I had some folks comment on our new company Logo. Go to the front page, it’s there. We’re branching out so much that while GMC’ s are our mainstay we are attracting all kinds of things like the side opening Airstream side opening commercial trailer. Hey and our motor stand is coming together….man cannot live on bread alone……sometimes you need a little desert. Confused yet…..well just roll with me, we’ve been hiding Ron’s project back in the paint shop. Mechanicals has temporally taken over the paint shop from all the work. Ron s coach project has also bumping up on a milestone of its own….. Suspension all but done. all that’s left on brakes is to hangout this original steel brake meter valve. All spooged up with penetrating oil all but 1 brake line came off. And if you look behind the driver side front wheel and see one of these old rusty thing u should replace yours too. Brakes on a 12,000 pound projectile is important! My single phone plunking finger is getting tired. Its cool outside right now and I have a pile of trash to take out.
Sorry for missing coming here…promise it won’t happen again. My finger a supporting thumb are numb now…..see ya tomorrow
