Spent the night polishing nozzle.
Good time right up to where I hit my finger with 20K rpm wire brush. Not cool!!
Man I love being in the garage!!
Many parts painted and coming along.

Pads in!! Getting really close now!!!
You may notice, there is no hole/pipe coming in for the electrics! DAMN!!!
I'm literally in the shower after finishing up, and it hits me!!! I forgot to put in the tube for the electric line!!!! DAMN!!!!
So soon as I get out of shower, I run out. Only option was to hammer a stick on an angle down and through the still soft mix and out through the bottom side. So I can fish the line up and through!!!
Loop is for chaining up down should I decide to use it. Tried to flame harden but couldn't get hot enough. Oh well, anything to deter.
Rig mimics height of base.

Construction begins.
I need to get gallon marker numbers painted in order to finish up.
Found out this morning decals for them are going to take longer than I want to wait.
Hacking things up a bit trying to fit skins. Gonna be a lot of paint to touch up.
Funny, thing sure seemed taller when standing in the garage!

Well, was hoping to finish up tonight but holy cr@p it doesn't go back together as easily as it came apart!!
Still some bolts to get in between skins!
But looking good!
