Thanks, man. If you could get some buyers for a couple motorcycles and an old Ford I'd appreciate it. Otherwise, I've pretty well got it covered.

Sold this earlier today. It's destined for a '57 Ford SWB.

Finally got this back together.

Fired right up. Charging good. No more ticking. No oil leaks. No coolant leaks at first then the mechanical seal (water pump seal) started to leak. These are known to do that sometimes until they wear in. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
I forgot just how sexy this sounds with the dual Sportster pipes. Runs strong too.
I replaced the broken mirror and have the replacement front turn signal also. Grabbed another can of Plastidip to redo the paint too.

Supposed to be a guy coming by to look at the Goldwing this afternoon but he sounds a little flakey. We'll see how it pans out.

Sold the Goldwing tonight.
Took a deposit on the '35 Sedan. It gets picked up Saturday.
The last big ticket item is Zero, which is almost ready. I still need to clean it up and shoot another coat on the tank and rear fender. Water pump quit leaking though. Marc still wants to ride the coast range via logging roads. Hoping to fit that in in the next few weekends. Then it goes on the market.

Well, I spent ever day last week working on the house as well as yesterday. Roofers and flooring guys screwed up my perfect schedule so I've had no access to my garage (dumpster trailer) and no laundry, hot water, and down to one toilet since Wednesday night. They got the laundry room floor done yesterday so at least I was able to get the new water heater in last night and get a shower before bed.
Today's agenda is pack the shop up. It's already half filled with furniture and boxed up house stuff but all of the shop supplies, tools, parts, and equipment are yet to be packed. My plan has been to try to keep all the various parts with their respective vehicles. 98% of my pickup stuff is already over there. Neon spares are in the trunk (I did a Tbelt and water pump Friday after work). Packed almost everything Datsun related in the wagon. Couldn't fit my spare strut set though.
Now it's time to box up all the rest. My pile of scrap metal should be pretty sizable by the time I finish.

I put in a solid 12 hours yesterday and it actually looks worse than when I started. Moved and restacked a lot of the house boxes and added a few boxes to them. Got everything out of all the cabinets and boxed. Everything on the shelves behind the silver tarp boxed. Everything under the workbench sorted and packed. Solvent tank drained and cleaned. Filled a couple trash bags. Gave away some stuff on CL. Added to the scrap pile. Got about half the parts down from upstairs.
What I have left is the parts upstairs (mostly Cutlass and El Camino). A medium sized shelf of SBC parts, carb kits, gasket sets to be boxed. Get my chalkboard and some random items off the wall. Clear off the workbench. Luckily almost everything is on wheels so I expect the actual loading on the truck might go pretty smoothly.

It was a blast. Compound has been ridiculously busy even though not much has been happening project wise. Days are running out.

Did okay, I guess. My dad hitched a ride down here and drove it over for me. Ran fine but got about 11MPG at 55-60. Horrible. But it got all the unnecessary vehicles transported. Now I'm down the the Neon, wife's Venza and Zero.
House lists on Thursday. I'll be going over next weekend in the Neon to get the new place ready. Be there for a week and catching a ride back here for graduation. Hopefully we get some action on the compound while I'm out of town.
Hoping to do that coast range ride still too.

Not quite done with it yet. Watch for it on Boise CL in a few weeks.

Damn that's a nice shop. You can really tell when it's not full of stuff.
