hooked up and ready for glue

Sheesh, it's been a long day.
Went off to the hardware store to get some new blades for the Skill saw and some bolts to bolt these brackets to the frame. Using 1/4" "strong like bull" angle iron, them blades don't last too long.
Started all over this morning after nightmares last night of using 3/16" angle, what I had already made the brackets yesterday.

If'n ya think I weren't work'n, this is my 2 car garage right off the front of "da porch". I bet'ya I climbed under "that jeep" at least a hunerd time. And I ain't done yet.

Well, would ya lookie here. This is what Billy Bob does for a liv'n.
Everything fit just like a glove...you do remember the glove, right?
But I ain't done yet. Now I got to take it all back out and glue everything together.....Loc Tite Blue. Make a couple "resiz'n" cuts to the radiator crossmember and WALLA!!!
Now old Billy Bob happy.

Come tomorrow, after a golf ball swak'n day, I will probably lay back on "da porch" and rest. This is too much like go'n to work every morning.

Did I ever tell ya bout the time.....I went off play'n darts at one the local pubs and got snockered so bad I had to call in sick the next morning. Actually, I weren't sick....I were still snockered to the gills. Sick came a few hours later as I lay on the couch DIE'N. What I learnt from that lesson was never take a shot of tequila after every bulls eye. Just drink yer beer and shut up.
Don't know why I wrote this, but for some reason work reminds me of get'n drunk....what I don't do no more.

"that's all I have to say bout that"...GUMP


  1. Thought you was gonna find you a welder local to do some welding on it? you decide to trust a few bolts only?

    Go Whack them golf's balls a mile tomorrow..

  2. No....I'll put a few tack welds on it just to make it look purty. Them ai'n't just bolts, they hi dollar #8.8 hi tensile strength "strong like bull" bolts.
    Yes, I'm gonna have some welding done on it when I take it back out to glue the bolts.

  3. I was eyeballing those brackets yesterday and thought that they looked thin. the ones on my car are about 1/2 or so(side plates). Those you have now will do the job. The only question I have, is how do the brackets that your tow bar attaches to deal with twisting forces.

  4. Looks like you have been hard at work lately. Well at least you know how rig and fix stuff...me, I would have to pay to get it done.

    Have a great golf day tomorrow!!

  5. River....the tow bar is a Blue Ox with all that twist'n stuff built in.
    Yesterdays brackets would have probably towed a bulldozer, but....

    Boy Howdy MsB, where have you been? I done thought you went on one them Carribean Sea cruises.
