My Reno neighbor Joe Atencio came down yesterday, with his daughter, Jenna. We got the shop significantly straightened out. For the last few weeks, things were flying off the car and into a few labeled bins, or onto a shelf, or piled on the floor. We resorted bins, re stacked shelves, and got the bins organized. Floor cleared and swept. Not just everybody will volunteer to help clean up a shop. He might have been expecting to help remove the last few bits from the car, and we did some of that, but what we got done was a critical step. Thanks Joe!
I've kept the pink-fuzz-with-black-plastic insulation originally placed on the backside of the firewall. Anyone know where to get the best replacement for this stuff?
Steel for rotisserie arriving this week. That won't take too long to fabricate.
