Don't you hate Knats! He struggled here, but at least not buzzing in my ear. Second coat should fix this.

Up before 4:00 this morning, lots to do this week. Have to finish mowing the grass, it was put in a rain delay this weekend. Need to dust off BOH and Old Girl and get them ready for the show. I have been on the fence all week about taking the Snow blower for Old Girl, and sense it was such a show stopper last year I think I'll take it again. BOH will sport the 38" blade, canopy, and the 44" deck. Those will need installed at the show. Hope I can get it all to fit on the trailer.

Every time you paint some insect has to get in it. Looks good though.

 

 

Tell the grandson that taking care of a growing body is more important that new tires.

My Wife is going to take a crack at restoring the emblem. So tonight I finished putting the hood together and installing it and the lower plastic cover. Still waiting on the neighbor to get back to me on welding the crack in the rear pan. Priced some tires at TSC today.

Finished up mowing the yard. Tomorrow I'll install the snow blower on Old girl and dust her off.

Well I guess shi# happens. I decided to trickle charge the new battery on Little John. After 3 hours I removed the charger and closed the hood, and "snap". I guess I'll see how well Plastic Weld works on this.

Fixable, I have had good luck with plastic weld. I'll post some pictures as soon as I figure out how to hold the parts together.

That sure stinks . Maybe you can find something semi ridged to use as a back  side reinforcement that would stay in shape of the parts while the plastic weld dried . That stuff works pretty good

I have sanded the edges and getting ready to stick the pieces together. Having a hard time finding a way to hold them till the plastic weld hardens. May stop by HF tomorrow and look at their clamps. Oh, I found someone at work that will weld the pan for me.
