Sheesh! ^^^


Just went out to check it and see how the glass did before I went to bed. The resin has not kicked off yet!! No reason for it not to, except maybe humidity. Poor Clay was tired after this long weekend. I think I need to just do a chunk of it so he doesn't get discouraged. He is ready to start driving it!

Keep your fingers crossed.

Yes, yes... it set up. I was starting to wonder if there was something wrong with the catalyst. That's never happened to me before. I guess the cool front and humidity did strange things to the resin. Here's some pics of the hardened glass. We will sand it down lightly to get all the sharp little nubs off of it. Nothing hurts like a piece of fiberglass under your nailbed! Makes me draw up thinking about it!

The plywood is/was for filler. You can see the differences in height. That was from the original rotted out plywood. Still may not use it... might just build the rest of the way with glass. It's only $$$!

And Katz iz Dum...

Garden pic for Jim... let your cukes run on a piece of fence. You have to "train" them to do it. Cukes are easy to see and pick this way.

Scott, nice glass work. The heavy wood will last a lot longer than the original luan. Now I know who to call when I need some help with glass...something I hate doing.

Funny how you can train a cuke, but not a katz

What happened with the hood problem?
Also, I never heard back from the individual I e-mailed on that extra windshield frame for you. Sorry.

Shaun... no worries about the windshield frame. Honestly, I had forgotten about it! The hood doesn't fit well at all, and has pretty big gaps around the fenders. If I can't move the fenders up a little (they are level right now) to take up some of the gap we'll just run with it. I figure only Jeep experts will ever notice it, and they have all been there too!

If there is ANYTHING I can ever do for you, you need but ask!
