Today I... had planned to tear my old oil furnace out (will be replaced in the near future with a propane/natural gas furnace).  O...M...F...G... what a job that was!@#$  We ended up breaking the outlet line on my water heater, too :-(  Luckily, it was a quick fix but I had to go across town to Lowes to get parts.

Then my pseudo f-i-l dropped by and saw what I was doing.  He said I'm crazy for tearing that out and that I should have just repaired the old one.  Ok... maybe that was feasible when that furnace was new...  20 years ago....

A new furnace can be had for under $1,000 these days.  After what I've been through this past year and a half, I think that's pretty cheap.

No.  The burner ducting/exchanger is good for 12 years - then start to crack.  Think CO poisoning.

Thanks for the info.  I didn't want an oil furnace anyway.  I've heard and seen too many horror stories.

Not today, but yesterday I woke up to water dripping out of the ceiling fan in my living room :shock: ended up tearing out a sheet and a half of wet drywall, the supply to the bathroom faucet upstairs had a pin hole for some time and made a mess :sad: Things are all patched, now I need to repaint my ceiling.

Today's high was 11, last night's low -8 (tonight -7) I don't ever remember it being this cold... what do you think Kerry, are we just getting old?

Fabricated a reverse lockout backdrive to clear the 70 Camaro's headers.  Dale like the original lockout feature and we did not want to rewire to run a switch on the trans.  It is a bit crude but works fine.  Reverse arm to bellcrank was a piece of 3/8's CR round stock zee'd and threaded for Heim joints.

Went to the parts store to get a new map sensor for the jeep. I would love to get paid for knowing nothing like parts store clerks are here!! I gave them the gm part number...."what car is this for?" Me; its part of this Howell efi kit....."oh huh this may be hard to get" Me; can't you look it up by the gm part number? "I guess we can try but it may not work"........click click click click.......ok we can get it. WHY IS THIS SO HARD!

I had to teach them last week how to read serpentine belt sizes K0600910=6 ribs 91 inches long and I needed an 88 inch long belt and he couldn't figure out how to look it up.........part number K06000880!!!!!!

Being a part time counterman myself, I can now see where that stupidity comes from.  At least half of these guys know next to nothing about cars.  They are hired for their retail sales abilities/experience (*cough* our store manager *cough*).  Yeah, the computer helps a little, but most of them have come to rely too heavily on what the screen tells them.

...covered the shifter knob of my Trans Am in leather as it was originally :

First step, I took a piece of cheap bycast leather to shape the pattern. You need contact cement for this. I used pictures of an original knob to know how it's supposed to be cut and sewn :


I made marks to be sure I could glue it back properly. I marked the stitching holes. :


I removed the leather and made the pattern :


Then I cut the final leather, made the holes or the stitching with my machine and glued it back on. It's rather tricky here.


And finally, I did the baseball stitch :




It looks so much better now with the shifter in the correct color.

That's awesome work Raptor! A fellow could make some good money doing that.

Today I finished off the entire weekend of sandblasting and painting. I blasted the radiator support, both inner fenders, and the two larger bumper frame pieces down to bare metal, and treated them all with two coats of SPI Black Epoxy. I'll get the hood hinges and smaller brackets with the next batch, but the bulk of the underhood stuff is done now.





Now it's off to start studying for the Night Nav EP Simulator I have this evening. Should be fun.

^Wow, someone has been busy.

So I just finished my daily car search, and apparently there's a 1997 30th Anniversary Camaro with the T56 for sale about 40 miles from me.  Part of me is like the Firebird and the Camaro are practically the same car by this point, but at the same time they aren't.  I know it's silly but I really prefer the Firebird over the Camaro, though I wouldn't want to pass up a Camaro with the T56 and then not find a Firebird in a reasonable time frame.  I will need to call for more information, but I'll wait until tomorrow as it'd be a bit rude at this hour.

You could probably make a good deal more doing steering wheels and armrest sized stuff once you had a good reputation going.

I can't fault you, as much as I greatly prefer the Firebird over the Camaro I even more so prefer a manual over an automatic.  Plus this means I get a green light on the '97 6-speed Z28 I found. :lol:

I did the e-brake hadle as well. As you can see, the original one was in pretty bad condition :


Even worse once the leather was removed. The handle is trash :


So I got an idea : maybe I could use the '89 handle instead. The problem is it's longer, but it does fit on the lever. So I cut the excess of plastic on the back, sanded the part and rounded off the edges :


I cleaned up the hole afterwards :


Then again, cover the part in leather to get the pattern :


And done ! :

Well apparently the Z28 was already gone...  Maybe that's a sign to wait for a Firebird.

I had to google what that is.  Nice job. 

On a side note....  I do vaguely remember...  about 30 years ago...  my parents tried to get me involved in something similar.  Last thing I remember is sitting around a campfire, getting eaten alive by mosquitos, and singing about ravioli.  Yeah that was it for me!

Thanks Everybody! I have 12 years invested into scouting( I turn 18 in 7 days to put that into perspective...) Its been a long journey and there were times I didn't think I would make it! I've learned a lot and made some very good friends these past few years since I first bought my Trans Am and and you guys have played a large part in that. I've been shown some extreme generosity by complete strangers to help my build
(Shout-Out to the unknown 2014 Trans Am Nationals vendor who gave me a free timing cover I desperately needed after hearing about my car/interests!) Among others who paid it forward to me, I really appreciate the kindness guys and look forward to helping others out with their projects when I'm in the position to do so!  I would say the biggest highlight of my scouting career was doing a 7 day/70mile Appalachian Trail backing trek in which I met very "interesting" people. I look forward to becoming an adult leader and staying active in the troop I'm in.  Overall I'd say that scouting has taught me a great many things, including the drive to keep going. The Eagle Scout Project Packet was a 30 page something monster that I made several hundred (if not thousands...) of revisions to it(printing out at least 12 different versions of it....:( ) the course of 10 month period. The project went smooth but just getting the paper work done was the biggest obstacle as well as getting off my duff and starting it. It is finally nice to sit back and not worry about it anymore, I'm not sure if got it done for personal achievement or to stop the endless nagging of the troop adults lol.  Thanks for the compliments guys! Sorry to bore y'all with such a long post...

  Just received our 2 new laptops (Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series w/windows 10). So far no problems and pretty easy to use. My hard drive crashed on my old laptop (second time in a year) last Friday and I decided to just buy 2 new ones on Saturday. I told the wife this is our valentines gifts to each other.
