Thread: Winter project

  1. #1

    Default Winter project

    Well it is cold and raining. I have to say it feels like winter. So does anyone want to share what their winter project is going to be?

    Hopefully an 82 GL1100 restoration with some custom fab work added to it and a nice paint job (haven't decided on color or scheme yet though). Additionally get the garage all organized and a new welding bench and some new stuff from JD2.

    The last few weeks have felt like winter here, but it's finally nice today and suppose to be nice all next week. Good to see the farmers in the fields again so they can tear some more stuff up for me to fix

    As far as projects - I was getting ready to start on an '80 3/4T Chevy 3+3 truck. Going to pull the cab and do a little fixin on it, blast the frame, replace the worn out 350 with a 468 Big Block, build a flatbed with underbody boxes, and of course paint. Going to use this truck to haul the race car and crew to the races next year. But, got a couple of utility trailers to build first, then a buddy brought his new Polaris Ranger over yesterday wanting a cab made for it - that will be a bit of a challenge I guess the truck is going to have to wait a few months....

    Cool deal!!! I need a tubing notcher, I was thinking of the Notch Master and Model 32 tube bender with hydraulics to start with!!! That should keep me busy for awhile building a chopper frame and some other projects.
