What did you do today instead of working on your Mustang?


Recommended Posts

Well I was walking down to shop to do some more block sanding. I heard neighbor trying to split some white oak. I walked over and all they had was and axe and sledge hammer they were driving the axe in like a wedge. I told them to come to shop and they hooked up my log splitter. Had the whole tree split in less than an hour Since I cannot lift I just ran the splitter. 
So we all had cold drinks and pizza and I went back to shop and got the weed eater out and ran a tank of fuel out and quit for the day. 
This surgery has me getting so far behind.

Over the weekend I took a 2 day course on tuning Holley EFI systems. Was really interesting seeing some of the things you can do with them. And even though it was a GM, on day 2 the guy running the co

He tried to reverse and slipped into the ditch. No major damage, maybe a damaged ego.

Today was another light duty day so I made two brackets that bolt to my blast cabinet. I added 4 castor wheels and raised it up some also. I hate a blast cabinet use molasses all I can. Got a few spots on Ram Air I need to clean up and paint tomorrow if no rain.

Went to Lebanon Valley Dragway on Sunday with a good friend to run test n tune. They had a rain out Saturday, so everything got pushed into Sunday. Had a small tire/big tire Street Outlaws event, a no drama $150 bracket event and the TnT. Weather was great, but racing was a total $hit show. They would call TnT to the lanes, run two lanes and then call the other classes and we'd sit there for hours while the "pros" were wrecking, blowing up and causing delay after delay.  One driver went out in an ambulance after he hit the wall, at least one other ended up in the wall too, every couple cars they had to stop to do track clean up. Lots of people were not happy.

Regardless, my buddy ran his best ET ever with a 10.74 / 122mph in his 70 Road runner. He's running a 400 stroked to 512ci. Car is very well sorted, just hooks and goes. Cell phone video, def not a pro.

I started cutting downed limbs and trees from a major ice storm.  I used to love trees, not so much now. Chuck

Today while at Northern Tool I saw this "palm" ratchet. Man, I wish I would have known these existed. Sometimes when tightening bolts in a tight space this would be very handy. At least to turn the bolt most of the way in and then you can scramble a standard ratchet with swivel extensions to finish tightening.

Unfortunately for NT, I did not buy it at the store because the fools didn't want to manually scan the gift card I had. So I am looking at this one in Amazon:

Got it a little more done on basement. It’s all framed up. Stairs are built. Drywall is hung. Now I got my buddy coming to do the finish work on my drywall. Can’t wait till that’s done!!! Then onto laminate floor, doors and trim! Also have banister to build. But it’s getting closer.

Sold some parts today. Low and behold the fella showed up in this. He tossed me the keys and said........drive it :-)

This car has 69k original miles and basically every option offered all the way down to the map light. What I feel was really neat, as a boy 40 years ago he rode in this car at 5 years old with his dad. Car has never left the family since new.

I cleaned the gutters out, took cap off chimney and did some cleaning for the wood heater. Swept the roof off of leaves and twigs. Going to have to start burning the wood heater soon getting into the 30's and 20's here. Put some corn out for the deer and bear. Got the .458 Win. Mag out will take to garage tomorrow. I can line up three deer and take with one shot, lol.
