What are you up to?

Post by the_surfing_guy on Sat Feb 02, 2013 7:34 am

Not to rub it in, but I was sweating bullets yesterday scrubbing my doghouse with the windows closed and 80 degree sun outside. I was feeling like a bug in a jar!

Don't fret dodge man! An early spring is on the way, according to groundhog "Punxsutawney Phil."

I bought an used sea container so i can use it as a garage for my other car, it had glue and tape all over the inside walls, tried to remove with thinner and acetone but no luck,but my friend told me to try citric acid, and it worked better than well, spray on ,wait a while and scrape away!
got it from and warehouse who sells car paints.
so you guys who wants to clean their doghouses go ask a local car paint store if they have any. i can go check it out what company makes it tomorrow.

its a 400ml spray can and the only downside is the citrus smell which is pretty strong (at least inside the container...) but i had the doors open for a while and got rid of the smell. but it doesnt do anything to the paintwork!

look in to installig some vents in the sea can they tend to get realy hot inside. put some screen over the vents to keep the bee's and such out.

besides the normal small vents the containeer has , i bought an solar powered fan (for boats etc.) but should work well here also. the biggest problem here is that the roof starts "sweating" when the temperature gets up and down to around 0 degrees celsius. got some plastic to cover the car for now, but am going to get a real car cover that "breathes" but stands the water, and probably will build a roof to the container so snow doesnt build up in the roof causing the sweating.

Just returned from Savage's place, I have to say his big block van will be very nice when it is finished. Got some much needed parts for my '66. I can't thank him enough. An afternoon of van talk is always a great thing!

Chester, are they relatives of yours? What a great way to preserve a beautiful memory! You've got great taste in vehicles, sir!

Very Cool and I'm sure they are very appreciative of it.
My wife's cousin let us borrow his 63 Corvette for our wedding photos and I'll never forget that. I even got to drive it!!! It's definitely my favorite wedding photo!
