A fresh Diablo Chat 11/6/16

Postby Schoobytwo (Bruce) » Sun Nov 06, 2016 8:54 pm

Hi all,

It's November and 68 degrees outside. Today when the Packers played, it was the warmest November game day temperature on record. Jeez. The good news is the cold is right around the corner and I'm ready for it as the deer gun hunting season is just two weeks out.

In the mean time, we've been busy in the shop since August sandblasting, painting, refurbishing and getting all sorts of parts ready for a number of restorations. Today, the 1st of a few drove itself out of the shop. It's always so good to get that first one done.

Hope you all are having a great fall, but think snow and get ready for the 50th in January!

Hi Pete,

Thank you for your comments. I will not be entering the ski give-a-way, but all others still have time to join in and get their names in the hat.

I've been powder coating parts for years now. I find it a pretty easy process and am happy with the results I get. See you in January!
