    Things are SLOW

    Wife asked clean the yard. Wife asked put out Christmas decor. Working extra shifts due to short on staff.

    Happy wife/Happy life

    About to get back on it though. This pic is where I am waiting further fab work until rear differential set in place; place shock towers and new inside fenders. The grunt work begins....

    If nothing comes up, have the whole day tomorrow to cut out some motor mounts

    I wish my tailgate and rear floor was that clean!

    Good luck on getting your shop day! Can't wait to see what you get done.

    Is the Plasma Cutter not the real deal when it comes to shop tools?

    Looks like good work. I know I would like to own a plasma cutter.

    I agree, nothing like a plasma cutter. It sure beats Oxyacetylene.

    That is so slick it's almost cheating!

    Slow is smooth

    Smooth is fast

    Therefore - taking it slow is the fastest way to get it done right the first time ....

    Great looking motor mounts! They'll hold up nicely!

    I've been eyeballing some plasma cutters for the garage-ma-hall.... and a well used ironworker sheer/punch press. I just don't know if I want to spend the kind of cash on a really good one. The last shop I worked we invested in a ESAB, and it would leave a perfect edge, (if I would use a piece of angle iron as a guide). Very little dressing needed by the grinder, just to round off the edges for being hand friendly.
