Weekend Report 4/28-29/2012

First, a puzzle..


Click the image for a higher res version



How many different IHs are in this picture?

Body tubs count, but hardtops lying in the dirt don't.

I'm going to put it at 9.. can you find them all? That doesn't count the IH clock on the shop wall, and since the fridge is out of frame, it doesn't count, either.

Heck, might even be 10, but knowing it's there I can't quite make it out in the photo.

I managed to fool around on the Scout for a bit.

Drove it out of the shop for the first time in months, which allowed me to muck out the bay - it was long overdue!

Nothing scout related here. Did a lot of sitting around due to health issue's. I did however set up my golden penetrator and hooked up a few radio's to see how the DX is. Also been studying for my technician class license. Ive always wanted to get away from the 11 meter band. I am going to work my way up to the Amateur Extra License.

Found a place where no Scout can go...



First time seeing the Canyon. What a sight.

Went up to Tacoma for the weekend for my last weekend of baseball. I've been researching some new leaf springs for my 800 and might have settled on 47" waggy's for the front and some chevy 52" for the rear. Still in consideration. Havent purchased any yet, but I will be hitting the junkyard with a tape measure upon my return home. Getting ready to head back to Norcal though, been too long away from a rig and wheeling while getting my ass kicked in school . Plan of attack when I first get back is swapping out leafs, installing my front locker, and hopefully regear to 4.56's.

Got 6-tons of crushed asphalt ($27 total, as opposed to $27/ton for crushed rock!! Recycling is GREAT!) and re-coated my side yard a bit. Covered up some older crushed concrete I was tired of walking on and dirt/gravel from when I expanded the driveway and smoothed some things out. Turned out NICE, and definitely improved the look and function. I'll be getting more and doing the rest of the driveway (it's needed it). However next time I'll take the time to borrow my buddies little Kubota rather than by hand.

BTW, 6-tons of crushed in a 10K (GVW) dump trailer makes for a HEAVY load. Thank good for back-roads. Traveled just fine, but not something I will make a habit of.

Among other things, this is usually were I park the trailer and/or scout or.....


I know I was busy the rest of the weekend, but I can't think of what. Mowed the lawn (it was past due) on Saturday as well, glad I did as it was NOT sunny on Sunday.



Did this last weekend. Still need to trim and roll the wheel openings and paint it to match. Got another race next weekend.

I got my next frame off project. Check out the smile on Leona's face, she once again has laid clame on my Scout. Funny thing is she is enjoying this one more than the LS1, O well the neighborhood will be terrorized by a short red head in a Scout flavored go cart. Thanks to Chi for the help getting it here.

Rustoleum,

Does the crushed asphalt carry any tar residue - in other words, is it a sticky mess or is it more gravelly? I'd hate to put this down then need to lay in it working on a truck under the summer sun.

I'll find out.

As received its just like gravel, dry with lots of fines. It does smell a little like fresh pavement however


We'll see how it is in the summer but I don't expect to be much dirtier that good-old crushed rock. I usually throw something down if I have to crawl under a truck anyway, I'm a wimp like that (and it make it MUCH easier to find something I dropped ).

If I remember, or people ask, I'll let you guys know mid-August or so when it actually might get HOT here (like 90's).

I ended up working on my 800 this weekend with a TON of help form Darren and Chad as we put about 40 man hours into the pos. A big thanks goes out to Jeff for letting us use the shop! Got the 4.3, 700r4, and NP241 swapped in along with some SII axles and 2.5" wide chevy springs front and rear. All three of us were going at it for most of the time...

I'm pretty sure they are 46''s F+R. 2" lift in the front and 4" lift in the back w/ a leave removed.

Monday still counts as the weekend.. Right?

Yesterday evenings work. Still need to do the other side and finish the front of the wheel well. Took about 1-3/4" out over-all (1" cut off, 3/4" folded over). We'll see if its enough, I might have to take a little more off the back-side of the opening.

I busted ass all weekend on my Chicken Coop for the wife and I's chickens. They are in the living room and I want them out of the house.

I left Monday morning for Charlotte, NC and a tradeshow and was able to get the roof on by Sunday evening around 7:30pm. The wife and I painted it earlier that day and so it is "pretty" weather proof now. Hoping to finish it up this weekend and next week.

It is fucking huge, but stout.

I worked out of town most of last week and this weekend. Did drool over all the super cool old farm IH's in eastern oregon. If I wasnt balls deep in projects already, I would have drug one home strapped to the top of my dump trailer.

Found out Sat my 14 bolt in my Travelette is TOAST!!! It gets hot as fuck and blows oil. And I am headed back oversea's tomorrow so it will be Aug till I can fix it. I just hope the Detroit lock is still ok. The TBI swap made it a totally different truck! I may just keep the 392 for a while haha.

And I did get my TDI bug fixed, had got some shitty diesel and the starter went out. Been looking at get some larger nozzle and a tune as well should make 130hp and 250ftlb's and still get 50MPG...

A bit late. Still f'ing around with my recenter job on the H1 rims. It's a pain with all the grinding. 1 rim left to go.
The new welder is sweet. I sold the old one on craigslist.

Started re-roofing my mom place. Old tar and gravel. Just doing one slope as it's a lot of work and money. So it will be a multi year project like a Scout.
Ripped off all the old, raised the roof a bit for air flow and starting laying comp shingles. No pic's lost memory card.
The old tar and gravel roofs here have a low slope of 2/12. Post and beam style house, so the roof is just 2x6 T&G. So no attic. Raising the roof to create air flow helps keep the house cooler in the summer. Plus we used the foiled plywood.

We used some two years ago and it doesn't seem oily or dusty. My only complaint is that it never "sets up" like gravel. The thinner spots packed hard, but anything not in the traffic pattern is loose. I've been told to spray it with diesel and pack it, supposed to loosen up the tar and then it will re-set.
