I don't remember if I mentioned the bumper for my '35 Chevy that Squid very generously gave me a couple of weeks ago. I took it up to Kamloops on Sunday...cleaned off the multi year accumulation of grime and gave it a quick polish. Came up pretty nicely for a 78 year old bumper.

That stack of cedar it is sitting on is destined to become a deck surface this summer when I get up there.

Managed to find a few hours to help my buddy Ken install a nice new stainless steel exhaust system in his '67 Chevelle while I was there. Here's a pic of his Moser 12 bolt rear end, with 33 spline axles. Basically bulletproof, even with a 496 big block Chevy.

Some pretty nice billet hood hinges. Check out the little piston that holds the hood up.

That is too cool Keith, that car should really get up.

A bumper that nice and especially for that price is a super deal. I bet it felt good working on the Chevy instead of wood for a change. Speaking of wood, that is going to make one sharp deck.

We must have posted about the same time. My stars, that is freaking beautiful buddy. I can say one thing for sure, he is flat out doing it right. Thanks for the pictures Keith, that made my night.

I think Ken's Chevelle has been seven years in the building. Heaven only knows how many hours or dollars are in this thing. His M/T street slicks and matching front tires just arrived as well. I'll get a couple of full car shots when it's out of the garage.

Nothing very exciting today so far. I got the window casings added around the three bathroom windows...one undercoat and one topcoat on so far. Needs a couple more topcoats.

There's a space at the top of the wall alongside the composting toilet which needs to be filled with a board full of holes.

It acts as a warm air vent when the woodstove is on. Natural convection lets the warm air rise inside the wall and exit at the top into the bathroom. It worked well last winter...not much need for a fire on at this time of year.

Nearly have the shingles done inside the stairwell. Now the little oddball bits have to be finished and after that the stair posts can be bolted back on again.

I should add that I did find a gallon of contact cement that I was dead certain was here and ended up using that to stick the shingles on. It worked a treat.

Buddy, you got it looking good. What do you have planned on the windows? Are you going to have them standing proud of that wall?

Yes Jim...just a little, about 1/4" or so. I'm going to fill the small gap with caulking which I will paint when it's dry. That way any future small movement can be accommodated by the caulking.
