Bee's gotta buzz, birds gotta fly, I gotta sand!

I can't take it anymore! Life with my forearm in a splint just don't get it. After 6 weeks I have been sneaking out to the garage to work on whatever i can get the few moving fingers I have on! The big project on the table is the infamous "Johnny Sparkle" Model T - Ford sedan. I popped my splint off and started doing the body work on his home made dash. Its a lucky thing I am right handed or this really would be a tough job to accomplish. Most of the work is done on the sedan except the finish work on the 2 doors, and the rough in work on the dash, then it should be just a sand and paint deal!

Other little projects I have been plugging away on were a bunch of bowling pins I painted 3 weeks into my life in a splint.
The "Wingteam" pin is for a fellow high school mate Adam.

Carrol & I have finished the editing on the "How to Chop a Model A at home" DVD so it should not be too long before we can offer it up on my web site store! Sorry that the blog posts have been in low gear gang. I'm doing my best and hope to at least kick it up into second as soon as I build up the RPM'S
Keep them wrenches clanking guys!

Can't keep a good Man down.

Well if ya didn't notice i haven't been blogging as much as usual, i guess the pic says it all. i had a 5 inch graphite metal cutting disc explode and cut my forearm to the bone, severing 4 tendons and rendering my arm a bit useless for the next foreseeable 4 months. So, i bum around the garage making a list of things i can do with one hand. "Art" jumped to the top of the list, as I am right handed, and still have full use of the righty. So i painted up a few bowling pins in candy colors, and have been taking pre orders on them. If some one would like something special on one just shoot me an e-mail. Things haven't stopped they just slowed down a bit. I did finish filming my new dvd "Chop a model A ford top at home", so be on the look out for it at my online store in the next month or 2. Thats all I got for now, get out to your garage and build something. I'm out here with a bum arm! What's your excuses?
