Daily bs: achieved! ;)

Welding before going in to work. See what I can do in 3hr. Hope to be either finished or on a supply run.

 Changing out of work clothes and into work clothes, grabbing the Lib key and some welding wire omw to the office for a drastically understaffed day!

One is taking the afternoon so I took a partial morning. Welding 97% done. I have 80” of bead left to run on 4 decking seams. Could run it as-is if necessary but I’d rather make the runners solid front to back.

I think what I thought was rain issues last night was some poor prep. Paint on the rail under the plate coming out and contaminating. I had to grind a couple back, particularly when I didn’t run relatively exaggerated circles.

I have never worked on projects for a couple hours before coming to work. I don't like this.

I want to smell the sweet scent of CO2/Argon and steel. Now.

Inner fenders done last night. Shit welds, too much wind and not clean enough on the fender side.

Slight bend over the axles on both sides. Guess I should chock the rear once in a while when loading heavy.

Weather doesn’t look like I’ll get to paint the top side this fall, I think we’re out of warmth. I think I’ll redo the marker lights only and call it done till spring.

Tired of working on this thing. Almost done. Lights and wiring 2x the work decking was. As expected.

brake pads ordered, they're thin.
16 of 32 studs swapped out. Super easy as long as the ones being removed don't fall inside the rotor hat. fishing for them requires way too much patience.

needs hubs greased and air checked.
