Just scraping by....

8:32 am - Mountain Time - Tuesday - 53º F, 68% humidity, wind 3 mph out of east northeast.....forecast high 71º F.....high wispy clouds again, but plenty of sun.

I didn't have much planned for Monday, so I volunteered to help Tom with one of his new projects.....redoing the interior of a 1940 Ford Sedan street rod (below), which he bought in October......

1940 Ford Sedan with suicide doors

......to me the interior looked pretty good when it was first delivered.......

Interior before being gutted.....

.....sans interior

.......my task was to scrape and clean all the glue, etc. off the metal in the front area of the car in preparation for the installation of sound proofing (you can see some of it already installed inside the driver's side door).  We spent a couple of hours cleaning the floor board and firewall before calling it day.

I spent the rest of the afternoon outside in my zero gravity chair reading and enjoying the delightfully balmy Wittmann weather.  As we often do when in Wittmann, we gathered in Tom and Darlene's dining room for dinner together with Tom regaling us with some humorous stories about a past bout with kidney stones......not that having kidney stones is humorous, but the way Tom tells the story is just hilarious.

Thanks for stopping by!
