RE: what did you do in your garage / shop and or driveway today ?


Fixed up the Old Tim Horton's, Broil King, BBQ (again)

Don't know why I don't get a new one ?

Maybe it's because the new ones don't come with white wall tires biggrin

Those Falcon's were built to last Kevin. My parents had one for a good 20 years. An In-ground model. The pipe rusted out and couldn't be replaced. So they scrapped it. Could no longer buy an in ground model anywhere anymore as they became illegal.

Funny, I thought I might have a winner in my 27 year old Wait broilmaster...but no.

This one is still kicking as it's built super robust, and all the parts are still available for it. The guy at Burlington BBQ said never get rid of it...so I didn't. Ugly, but it works great. I think I might restore it this winter lol!

I've been building a rotisserie. Its been a while since I actually worked in the shop designing 

Lots of fun. I think I should be able to use it on locomotive  restorations. You know what comes next.  We'll try again thiswinter.maby I will actually work  on a car.

I did license my 71 acadian. And the 70 Camaro I bought in manifobia. No issues. 

I can only post 3 at a time  from my  phone. 20171021_205449.jpg20171021_205435.jpg20171021_205405.jpg


 


 Had another day to work on the rotisserie. Knocked it  half  apart and started over. 

Got it back to where I was before and added sterring after moving the wheels and the Jacks. 

It's more better now.  Off to Dawson Creek for the week. Maby my last  trip. (Retirement  home trip next 20171118_181135.jpg20171118_181122.jpg20171118_181135.jpg    )

Changed the plugs and brake pads on my car. I also installed atv plows on my 4-wheeler for winter use.

Having a single garage that is jam packed and has no heat limited my garage activity unfortunately LOL. But I did repurpose some of my grandmothers old frames for these antique parks passes:

Yesterday, replaced the leaking rear wheel cylinder on my Strato Chief. It was nice to take the wheel cylinder off a 51 year old car and not have to deal with any rusty bolts or rusty brake lines.

I didn't want to rub it in because not everyone is that fortunate, but you are right, that made it pretty pleasant to work on.

The green stuff is what you call a good old west coast winter. It has been a little on the chilly side the last few days with temps in the -2 or 3 range. I know, I know that not what you guys in the east call cold, but with the humidity that we have it can be cutting. 

Good to hear that you have some heat now Jim. Keep up the good work.

Those look great. I like the backdrop of maple leaves and birch bark especially.
