Ryan, Your like the Energizer Bunny!! You like never stop LOL.

Do you need any fittings or valves?

If you ever need stuff let me know. I have a lots of air related things.


Stop? I'm sorry, I don't understand what you are trying to say. What is this "stop" thing you speak of?

I think I'm pretty good with valves and fittings. I have a lot of stuff, its just a matter of finding where it is! Lol.

I normally keep the garage pretty clean. Every night when I'm done I clean up all my tools, sweep off the work bench, and I sweep the floor every few days. The only time I have a hard time finding something is wend somebody else uses it and puts it someplace it does not belong.

Mine is tough. I clean like you . but it is a challenge doing restors in there. It is a narrow long space and it doesn't take much to make a mess. and I also have to keep a lot of things in boxes on shelves.

I work out of a small one car garage. Things can get pretty cramped in there at times! I have a lot of shelves and a lot of things are pinned to the walls. Lol!

Only two of my restorations have been done at my house. My broadmoor I got when I was five, and the little toro 5 I did last summer/fall, and that one still is not done yet. All the others have been at my dad's old tire ware-house where there is all kinds of room to work in there.

I made the mount for the toolbox today. Its nothing special but it works great! It holds it securely with a little bit of wiggle room. A piece of angle iron in each front corner and a piece of flat stock in the back hold it in place. You can lift it up and bring the box to wherever you need to go!

Once I get a ball coupler and weld it on it will be ready for paint!

After I made my last post I went and took the compressor off the trailer. I figured I could weld the coupler on without the compressor on it. So, I can pull it around before paint, but it wont give the same results. If you posted a little earlier, and I had seen it then I would have left it on. Before I took it off, I put the bathroom scale under the tongue, only 109 pounds. That explains why I am able to move it around by hand so easily. I took some pics after removing the compressor, It actually looks like something now!

I painted the little parts. The hose spool arms, jackstand parts, battery cross piece, and clamps for the wheels. I have to paint the wheels and frame now.

That's really shaping up Ryan. 109lbs should be plenty of tongue weight. Being able to move it by hand is a big bonus when you need to store it in tight quarters.

Looking good Ryan! Have you decided on a paint color yet, or will it be a surprise?

The little parts are black, that's the only color I had in a spray can that wouldn't look ridiculous. Lol. I think I am going to use some dark pine looking green, should match the compressor somewhat.
