The truck came for the Scout today and it’s gone home. It was painted with Endura paint.

A little more work for the owners and they’ll be digging in the mud with it. Have fun.

The Rockets now have a 9/2/2 record

Painted this 1973 Scout last night in my paint booth using the new heat shed for heated air while painted.

image

Used Endura to paint this 4 x 4. Turned out very well. Good flow and leveled nicely.

image

Well the heat shed is built, Baby Fisher is puking out heat, and duct work is connected to blow warm air into the shop.

image

Painted a 1973 Scout last night using this heat system and it worked very well.

image

My next step is insulate the heat shed tonight and to use 6″ flexible ducting to supply intake air to the stove so paint booth blower won’t effect air intake to stove.

image

Intake for paint booth air flow is supplied by two 16″ x 16″ vent holes in the floor of the heat shed.

The Canucks played a very good game yesterday and deserved to win. They had 39 shots opposed to Penguins 23 and played much more like the Canucks we love to watch. Bad break in the shoot out.

Put a new hot water tank in the house yesterday correctly and we shouldn’t have problems for years to come.

image

Cleaned out the mess where the old tank was and put down a preserved wood base. Put down a drain pan for the tank to sit in. Used Shark Bite connection to plumb the tank.

image

Unfortunately there is no place for the water to drain to in this old basement but we can drain manually if water accumulates.

The hot water tank was very old and finally poured it’s water on to the basement floor causing a big mess and lots of work to clean up.

image

It was put in incorrectly to begin with with no drain pan to get rid of water from around the tank.

image

Time for a new one.
