German House Rebuild


Shu,...you forgot to tell him about your ongoing Mustang restoration also...I mean...inquring minds wanna know, eh? Jeez, still 'chasing' the finster guys..should make it into a 'board game'..called 'where's my materials????' We have a 'ton' more of that white stuff in your yard, and temps of minus 20 C. Wish it would go away now! Cheers

Nobody can accuse you of being a timid builder, that's for sure! I haven't read the entire thread, but a fair bit of it. Looks to me like you have done a whale of a job so far! Very well done! I have only just joined this site, so this is all new to me. I hope you succeed 100%, so far so good.

No progress the last few days. I got the flu. I've been couch bound. They did deliver the rest of my windows on Thursday. As always I will post pics as things go forward. Dorf Dude...

Sorry to hear about the 'flu. Good that your windows are there. We are under a couple of feet of snow here.

The flu turned into a type of Mono sort of crud. My throat is in bad shape. Antibiotics for the next week. There won't be any updates for awhile. This sucks Happy Holidays! Dorf Dude...

Well, Shu, after all the work you have done, a few days off for a good rest will do you good. Our snow has now grown to 35" total!
A very merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.

Dorf dude -

My best to you and wish you a good recovery. - Do not push it too soon or too much when you get back. - Maybe you can go and look and think what you want to do before you jump in "full boat". You might find it is a good chance to make some adjustments while you go when you are not pushing as much.

What year Mustang? - Don't say 1965-66 because my wife will leave me for you - she traded her '65 or '66 red convertible for an Opel (Cadet?) in 1969 of all things.

I will take it easy jumping back in. It won't be until Jan until I can get the heat going. Things shut down around here until after the New Year. As for the Mustang it is a 64 1/2 Coupe, 289, 4 speed. Long way from being finished but a long way into the project. Too far into it $$ to sell or quit. It's been on the back burner for the last couple years. I got it out of the divorce though . Dorf Dude..

I've been down on the couch for the last 2 weeks. Happy Holidays! I got to watch a DIY program called "Le Salvager" The guys name is Rico Daniels. He does some great work with old stuff. I have had a little email contact with him. I want him to check out the progress but he only has dial up modem. He is in a very rural area in France. We will see how this pans out. He rebuilds with recycled materials. I am now at the rebuild stage, weird timing ehe? Check him out if you have the time. I want to get my windows in ASAP!! It is amazing when you can't move but you have the will to. Good health can not be bought. I think things will begin again in about a week. From the Dorf Dude.... Happy New Year.

Dorf dude -

Welcome back to the land of the recovering!!!!

I get a worried when I do not see your frequent updates.

Take it easy on the start-up so your recovery can continue without a set-back.

The other Schu -

Billy D, Had a "talk" with a couple of them about an hour ago, and passed your photo around to them in the back yard, ...and they are on their way!!!! Something about "unbearable" comments, and something about putting some dishsoap in your "mixture", to make you more 'creamy" to eat! They like to hang out in Pubs and drink Guiness, and wear dark glasses and do the "bear Dance", so to be forewarned is to be forearmed, eh? Cheers.
