Junkyard Wars Wannabe's

2004-06-19 02:21:42.356131+00 by meuon 3 comments

The theme for "Junkyard Wars" kept going through my head, Eric and I created steel plates to fit the rusted out chunk of frame on his pathfinder and we welded them to the frame. We learned: Buy the good saw blades for the reciprocating saw.

What's it signify when you're not surprised that there's a skateboard being used as a mechanic's creeper in an operation?

Dunno. I've always known the skateboard to be the primary tool for that purpose. (Long before I ever knew what a "creeper" was.)

Since breaking my ankle in Mexico last January, I won't be doing my normal )^( gig of pooning art-cars with my long board this year (but I will be able to by next year). Still, a couple of skateboards are really useful around the house. My longboard is great for moving big furniture and my old (circa 1977) plank is great for moving steel beams, table saws and gun safes.

But Dan.. we even used that board to help you move out of Chattanooga. Why would you be suprised? And Shawn is right, they also make good creepers and stools when working down low on a car.
