Too hot!

It’s been so hot, I can’t stand to be in the garage for more than a few minutes! But I managed to spend some time with the shrinking disk getting rid of dents in the splash shields. Once the heat wave passes, I will start fixing some warpage where the running boards attach to the splash shields, and welding up some cracks and localized rust perforation.

I also went for a drive in 102-degree weather, and was pleased to see that the car ran fine, without vapor lock or overheating.

Back to working on the exterior

I got back from 3 weeks’ vacation, and I sandblasted the splash shields that go between the doors and the running boards. It was quicker and less unpleasant than I expected. The next step will be to fix some dents and cracks, and start refinishing them.
