I swapped from Weber ICTís to a single Dellorto. The first step in my turbo conversion. But havenít done much else to the car. Actually been busy with the empanada trailer. And food prep takes all my time.

Default Re: What have you been doing during lockdown

Nothing has changed for me, going to the store is a big social even for me, it's the only time I see anyone other than my wife, my neighbors and my brother

I did a little patch work on mine over a month ago, bought some body filler, just haven't gotten around to doing anything else, still bare metal, I started a fire welding those holes up, luckily I had a fire extinguisher next to me, I'm guessing it was that hair they put up inside these things, just glad it isn't that foam
Last week I tried to start it but the battery was dead, I might hook up the charger today, I'm just gonna buy a new disc brake setup for the front since replacing everything will cost just as much, I may as well just get it all in one shot





It's still tough for me to get much of anything done, Shmitty will be 2 years old in 4 days (May 15th), he's starting to get better, but still insists on being right next to me when I try to do anything, at the moment he is sleeping, most days I lay around when he is sleeping, if I use my phone for anything longer than 5 minutes he will bark at me till I get up and play with him
I do have a video of me opening my garage door with him, if it moves and makes noise he wants it, that includes a lawnmower, angle grinder, and sawzall, those are just a few things I've tried to use unsuccessfully, until I put him on a chain
When I find the garage door video I'll put the link here

I decided to finish my knife grinder after buying some belts, using all small pieces of angle and channel I've been saving, I still need to cut a few more pieces and put it together, see if I can finish this in the first week of 'this' year





I also picked up a welder for $50 220 volt 180 amp, it was missing something for the wire spool, simple fix, welds great, now if only I could still weld

Picked up a rough but mostly complete Bugatti kit car. Was going to post a picture, but have no idea what is being asked for in order to do it. Used to be so easy.

I have always wanted a Bugatti kit car, I was 10 years old when I had my first ride in one
