Re: SkinnyG's '61 Apache

I wish I did a better job of estimating how long it takes to do things.

Today I scraped out the last of the undercoating, fit more patch, planished a ton, fit the brace, and cut out another rusty area that needs blasting before I can repair it.

I had a bit of time after dinner - got the entire passenger fender blasted.

Re: SkinnyG's '61 Apache

No more bungie cords.

Was securing a tarp so I could sandblast under some shade, and had one bungie hook let go, zing past the skin over my jugular vein, and draw a bit of blood. Could have been very very very worse.

No more bungie cords.

DAMN! Well it would appear that you are ok, but that is not funny and i would not use them for this and maybe use ratchet straps or equal.
