It’s early yet, and I know the weather is just itching for a chance to break my heart. But what the hell? It’s too warm and still not to pretend that building season is here.
Anyway, Big Brother is coming for a visit in a couple of weeks to do the addition trim, and I need to be geared up for that. So…
First pull, y’all! Started right up. Emptying the gasoline out of the tank is an enormous PTA, but I like the way there’s a valve that lets you empty the carb bowl after it finishes running dry. I put it in storage with a fair – and as it turns out, justified – degree of confidence that bad gas and condensation wouldn’t wreck the carb.
Which of course didn’t have anything to do with cabin trim. It has always bugged me, how insecure that new rear door is. Sure, I could buy a jig and cut the door for a deadlock, but what the hell? This is cheaper, easier and more secure. If anybody ever comes to kick in my door, I want to know at which door I should be aiming the rifle. I delayed until I could get some proper bolts. Good luck kicking that in. I’ll paint it while I’m painting trim in a few weeks.
