Good post Mike!
I painted a few cars when I was about 20 YO, out front of the garage.
Should have just used rattle cans.

Anyone that wants to do a short Seminar/demo on anything.
Let us know.

We'll have that white board again and set a time of your choosing, to do your demo.
You really do a good job of showing folks how to do things.
It always draws a big crowd.

Don't look like I'll make it but while spending some time in the shop today I started thinking....a dangerous thing!


Not sure if ya'll have noticed but there is usually quite a bit of talk about putting bushings in the torque tubes and I "thought" that would be a good seminar if someone had an old torque tube and the tool to do it with it. That sucker has always puzzled me but luckily I have never needed to do one. (shhh, I may need to do one on my 50 coupe)shhh

Just a thought guys. Something to think about while cooling it.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Hey Alvin, I put bushings in my torque tube at a homecoming a year or two ago.

due to the drizzle /overcast conditions -i did some tool talk & demos after the get together meeting ! if fact a did several set-ups & shows -seemed to work good that way ! i always have some kind of new tools i buy ? anything to make the job easy ! just wished i could bring my "pullmax " run some metal pounding -beads & shape forming ! but the p-7 pullmax weighs about 3500 #s - anyway i will try to do more tooll demos & if you got something you want to demo or show ? think about it - you got 12 mos to think of something you might want to see or do ?? thanks mike

Mike,

Thanks for the demos, and showing the new tools that are available....12 months seems too long to wait for the next round of learning...
