I’m defaulting to the 120 volt man when Edison kills our power.
Part of this project is a back up swamp cooler I’m installing to run on generator power.

I’m pro active wanting to coat the water pan with Flex seal to avoid future corrosion.
Ive never used it in this application. Never used Flex seal spray either.

Will it adhere ok? Or will it bubble and peal?

If cleaned well , it will stick. I need to find new sides for mine. Well water, even with an anode and filter there all rusted.

I'm thinking the roll on/brush on might be better. The can stuff is like water.

Totally made me miss the good old days seeing this! I have not strung a car in over a decade now...

I’m always in need of some pit crew if you’re interested. I don’t have any help Friday and have room for two more pit crew all weekend at Fontana.

It's nice when they come right off the dyno, they fire right up! 😊 Just need to install front bumper and hood and it's test drive time.

There's just no better sound then a big block chevy idling like that. My dad had a 70SS 454 chevelle, and it sounded just like that. Brings back a lot of my childhood memories.

#1 Wife wanted me to weld and build a router sled so shw could flatten a nice piece of hardwood to make a coffee table. She covered it in resin and it looks badass.

#2 We bought a fire pit kit and the metal insert was too big for the size we built. I cut it down, welded it back together, ground down the welds, and repainted it.

Goddamn my welds are fugly but they hold 😂 Disclaimer: I have extremely minimal experience

#3 I'm starting to build an end grain cutting board.

changing my gate on my south side, I have wanted it to match my North side (drive way side) where I have to wooden gates that span the 12' opening. I built the gates right after the house in 2003 and have refinished them once, they are heavy and have held up pretty dam well as I built the gates out of 3x6 with mortise and Lap joints. I built the exact gates made it look like one of my drive way gates but it will split in the middle. I had some old 4X8 beams and some 3x12's so broke out the table saw and made my 3x6's I was able to build these and clean out my wood rack, I guess I can say this is a recycled gate, hoping to hang these tomorrow night.
