Room in the truck next year Don, it's Union approved too according to the stickers that magically appeared the last time you were here.. wink

Oh, I wish.
I have a full plate right now.
Helping Sandra's recovery.
Snow storm came through and put large oak trees on shop and barn.
lots of damage to the farm.
No power for eight days.
Our bike is on hold for 2020.
Silver lining, no one hurt and we soldier ahead.

I'll be rooting for you, Don

P.S. If you run into the right person that sticker can get you a free beer (or in a fight)   rolleyes

One of the first things I saw that was confusing when I got to the US was a van with 24hr Rooter painted on the side. What!!!

There ai a lot of useful information in this build diary.  As a reader I use the imparted knowledge to better my humble efforts.  Note the Australian style trailer frame straightener.  The frame is suspended in midair by ropes and tie downs attached to three trees.  Both ends of the frame are tied to the nearest tree.  A datsun jack is deployed to push the frame into straightness.

OK, as stated earlier, this is going to happen. Lee, who has been busying himself by reading this thread from start to finish came over Friday and we got started on some new Lexan side windows ....
 The old ones were cracked around the mounting holes. The new ones will have a rim made from Al to clamp them in and the holes will be much larger hopefully alleviating any tendency for them to crack again....
Lee is also working on an off centre hand jack as we are hoping to find a way of getting the car up onto the stands without the chain-block...
For those with an interest that is a full grain extra pale hopped with Mosaic.

Note the Australian style trailer frame straightener.  The frame is suspended in midair by ropes and tie downs attached to three trees.  Both ends of the frame are tied to the nearest tree.  A datsun jack is deployed to push the frame into straightness. 

Sorry, as a Kiwi, albeit living in the UK, I have to correct a cultural misunderstanding - that's not an Australian trailer frame straightener - its more likely to be a tree straightener using the left over chassis remains of a Holden ute (before they went unitary construction) - I used to own an HG station wagon - respect for that beast. Brilliant on unsurfaced roads, never failed. Anyway - those Koala's, they of the chlamydia in the eyes, struggle to go up bent gum trees, hence the need for the straightener.

A Bonneville Lakester please barman.
Certainly sir; a lick of salt, a sip of gas and a twist of Lemming. More Lemming sir?
Just a squeeze.

A Squeeze of Lemming it is sir.
