Default Redneck Roundup #4

Got started early with Jim Hery building the gas tank(s) and we did some work to nearly complete the radiator buck for the Bugatti, updated the grill shell buck and loaded another of Peter's wheeling machines.

Rain at the end of the day made the ground just right to plant those donut seeds. We will do it today if the weather holds out!

I sure wish I was at the RNRU this year with all that Bugatti work going on! Even though I missed the Roundup I had a great time at the Wine Country Meet in California. In fact, there were several metal events going on this week I wish I had also been at. The Kyle Yocum/Mike Wagner class in Ohio. The Baileigh/Lakeshore College event, the Redneck Roundup....

The good news is that all this good stuff going on shows that the state of health for metal shaping and coachbuilding is very very good!
