Happy Halloweeen quilt
I finished this quilt last week, but thought I'd share today (Halloween!) It is made from scraps from previous Ghastlie's quilts and orange/purple/gray/black scraps gathered along the years.

brakes!
We did finally 'finish' the brake system - I say 'finish' because we do have a leak to address before we go any further (probably one of my double flares that wasn't perfect).  So, more brake line needed before the weekend (we don't want to take chances wit...

brakes and brackets
We came home Saturday evening from hunting so we could work on our truck on Sunday.  We got the back section of the brakes bent, but ran out of brake line to connect from the rear to the master cylinder (and valves in between). Then, we worked (mostly Brian...

Floored
I am just floored..... because we have floors!  Haha :) Last weekend, we finished the floor pans and the seat pan.  Such an exciting hurdle to clear. Prepping the drivers side of the seat pan for welding.  We drilled holes for rosette welds along any area o...

Gauge panels, one step forward and 2 steps back
Well, I thought we had settled on doing a tiger maple veneer on the gauge panels, but it just hasn't worked right.  We decided on a gray stain/dye to tie in with the gray leather seat we are using. So, we prepped the steel panels with epoxy primer and some ...

She's alive, part deux
We knew the second that we started the engine for the first time in 4 years, that we would have to get rid of the vacuum pump.  Without being attached to anything, they are VERY noisy.  They were used for the brakes and for the vents in the heater system.  ...
