don't try this at home, drinking and painting dont mix.....somehow i pulled it off.........

i hate painting in the winter, i spray with my filter box/blower, then open the door and window with another blower fan to exhaust the flash fumes, till the furnace comes on, all i see are $$$$ blowing out the window reheating the shop, sometimes i have to do it twice, so i dont taste paint with my beer...........:doh:

Not bored, happy for ya. Beats us subscribing to cable. Wait, dunno about that. I've never paid for cable or satellite, or had it free. Regardless, cheers anyway!

Thanks for documenting all this, Neil! They really look great. I don't have access to a winterized shop, so I'm biding my time until the weather breaks a bit here in Muskoka. And I have a 1957 '35 Big Twin that I want to prep for the Ranger, so your posts are getting me revved up for that. :~)

Looking good Neil. Your way ahead of me. I’m looking forward to seeing them all finished in a row. I hope to be able to start my 30 resto using those parts I got from you in a few months if all heals up well. I’m dreading doing another cowl to match the couple I have and said I wouldn’t do it again but it will complete my trio of Evinrudes. I’m glad you’ll be a pro with the 30’s by then. I might need a hand getting some of the mechanicals done. Looking forward to lending a hand (or part of one) at testing time if you need it.
