Some ass hole killed my rabbit

Got it running on Monday. The timing belt had skipped on one of the cam gears. And the fuel lines had been installed backwards by the previous owner when they were trying to fix it. Unfortunately, when the timing belt skipped on the cam gear it bent the valves on one of the cylinders. So I am pulling the motor now in order to rebuild the head. Much better than having to buy a new motor though!

In standard fashion, I blew up a trailer tire In greeley on the way to go get it. And to think, some people take spare tires for their trailers…

Holy shit!
That is tile for the floor of the master bathroom. And there is even texture on the walls… 
For the first time in almost three years I have a sense of accomplishment concerning this house! Booyah!

I got a dirt bike yesterday. And that there on the seat is my neck brace. That way when I crash, and I will, I can stay employed… 



…and boom goes the dynamite

Here are photos of some of the work I really like from my design/ fabrication days.

Got the truck running friday night. Then Saturday, I put tires on some wheels that i like, put them on the car, pulled the seats out, vacuumed out 30 years of gnarlyness, finagled the throttle pedal and throttle cable back together which was surprisingly difficult, got the broken tailgate to open and removed it, put my seat in it, stole my subaru’s battery to get it running again, and finally drove it to the car wash to spruce it up a touch. While driving to the car wash, a mere three blocks away, I discovered: the brakes are scarry to drive worthless, there is a LARGE oil leak, the alternator is not charging the battery, the passenger door doesn’t open from the outside, the steering wheel is gross, the rearview mirror fell off, and there are some serious suspension issues. I really like this truck.

A customer brought a rabbit truck into the shop, after looking into the car we gave them an estimate for repairs. Problem is the estimate was big, it needs a lot. So, I offered to buy the truck off of them. They accepted. This truck is sweet because it has a title! And a diesel motor which, when i get it in good running condition, should be good for 50mpg.

I accepted Salta’s job offer! Here comes mechanic Joseph!
That’s my tool box. I have always wanted a good tool box.

New studio

Finished fabricating the Delganey Bridge sculpture for Patrick Marold.

Cut the last piece off of the rabbit and sent it to the crusher.
