Good Morning, Well had to build a door hanger so I can paint the doors off the truck. Yup guys its an endless process with me . It started with my first vehicle, 1950 Ford F100 PU, bought it with no engine, (I was 14) built a new engine, (flathead V8) it was a 100 hp had a 4sp trany, drove that truck all over, went to South Carolina even, my first interstate travel.

Terry,

That almost looks like the frame from my old swing set when I was a kid on the farm. Yes, we had metal parts back then.

Terry,

I'm surprised you let the girls go off on their own. Surprised your GD went with Grandma instead of helping you but I guess if I had the choice of riding or working I'd go riding too.

The swing worked out well for the door painting. You keep going and you will need that big pole barn with a paint booth. Wonder what you would get up to with a place you could work in without being stopped by the weather. Looking good though.

Hey you guys. Don't encourage Terry to build a bigger shed. If he does we will likely never see him!

Terry - you should have gone riding!!

Good Evening, Lynne, when I had the body shop we had all sorts of odd looking apparatus to hang/bolt parts to, to paint/work on, after I got out of doing that stuff I need to start over. Eleanor, rides quite often alone, every fall she takes a 300 mile loop around in the Adirondacks. GD always rides with Eleanor, even when we all ride together, (she always rode in the side car when I had it on, she started riding when she was two) Gordon, there was more to me not going for a ride, since I started to sand the truck my hands are not in good shape, pulling the clutch even with a clutch reduction unit in place hurts I live with it but hanging on the bike is another story. In some ways I'm "almost" glad I don't have my big shop anymore, I have several semi truck owners that want me to repaint their rigs, I've told them I don't have the place to do it.

Terry,

It is going to sound strange, but get some Bag Balm for your hands. It is in a square can and is green with the picture of a cow's udders on the can. It works great with putting the moisture back in, helps with the cracking.

The stiffness is another matter. Put (as hot as you can stand it water) in a sink and soak your hands. After a few minutes start rubbing those hands, knuckles, joints, and all over. The heat loosens up the hands and the rubbing improves movement.

It's worth it to see if it helps. I think Frank does that to keep his hands loose. I believe it was him having the trouble with stiffness.

Good Luck, you know that you are going to have to give the GD a bike when she turns 18 right? Bright pink maybe! Lynne

Lynne - seconds on the Bag Balm. I use Udder Budder. Best thing since sliced bread or pop up toasters. One application and healing is underway..

Terry - I agree. If you had a shop you would be inundated with offers of work. We would never see you as you would be that busy. Sorry about the hands.

Good Morning, Thanks for all the tips! Lynne, I have a hot wax machine for my hands, when I get so I can't bend my fingers I start using that at night, after dipping a couple of times Eleanor puts a plastic bag on each hand then wraps them in a towel, that helps the most. Gordon, That has been something that I've always had happen, never been one to sit around so I've worked on everybody's vehicle for years, I get several phone calls a week asking questions or for assistance, I'm not that good just willing. I've had RA for over 30 yrs. been controlled and I don't give up easily, it was inevitable that my hands would get bad as I've just overused and abused them for yrs. I just modify what I do until they feel better then go after it again. Tim, I would love to go to Arizona but Eleanor has a couple more yrs till she can retire, so I think I would find the locks changed if I went . Been on and off again rain last couple of days so slowed me a little.

Terry,
The warmth is what helps the joints loosen up. My hands get real bad when the temps go down below freezing. I have little trouble when the temps are above 70.
