According to the tracking number the label for my flywheel order was created a 9:30 yesterday, and has had nothing happen for the nearly 23 hours since.
last night the Race to the Oppo rally truck rebuild project came to a screeching halt due to some wrong & defective parts.
(see prior day here) Day 8 had me putting paint on the last control arm, then going to a party to celebrate a friend finishing the construction and install of a giant stained glass lizard in his living room.
(see prior day here) Late posting, and I know you were all impatiently waiting for more pictures of things with paint on them. But first, brake lines!
(see prior day here) It was finally a dry sunny day, and man did I take advantage of it to the fullest. I’ve got grit in every crevice, paint coating my hands, & some in my hair.
(see prior day here) The weather continues to try and bring this close to the wire. And today it and the sandblaster ganged up to me.
(see prior day here) I didn’t get anything done on Friday or Saturday as it was mostly damp, which precluded sandblasting or painting. It did clear up on Saturday in the morning & early afternoon, but my partner & I spent that time having a steampunk picnic in the park.
So I put the motorcycle up on Craigslist, and haven’t been getting much in the way of responses aside from insulting lowball offers. Today however I got an interesting offer of a possible trade. A Bradley GT.
(see prior day here) Things got done! I was able to put in several hours today without interruption, and it shows. First off I got the silver Masterseries on the entire front frame. Now this all needs a coat of black and I will be able to start bolting things to it.
(see prior day here) I want to put in a full evening’s work on the truck, but apparently to universe has different opinions. My Partner found out today that her company is closing it’s office and she is being laid off. So I was only able to put in about 1.5 hours on the truck before going over to keep her company…
(see prior day here) Today I had planned to stop off after work for parts, then spend the entire evening working on the truck. Instead a friend and co-worker had the passenger window of her car unexpectedly get stuck down, so I spent a couple hours tearing into it and trouble-shooting before I was able to jury-rig a…
As in my first post, I’m chronicling my attempt to get my pickup from a bare front frame to a running & driving truck in time to take it to the Oppo Rally a state away on the 27th.
I have 20 days to turn this into a running, driving truck if I’m going to take it to the Oppo rally. I only need to do all of this to it...
I’ve bought and sold a lot of stuff on Craigslist, here is one random story of the weirdness that happens sometimes.
So I bought my “new” bike and have been riding it around when the weather cooperates. And I’m now second-guessing the whole “owning a motorcycle “ thing.
The summer flea market near me is now open, and my partner and I go most Sundays. I hadn’t been actively looking to pick anything up, but the vendors conspired to make it work out otherwise.
Lots of want going on here.
