Welcome back to the gateway to the weekend. I hope you all had a great week and are now ready to report what you have planned for the workbench or layout. Lots of progress last weekend so let's keep it up. Friday: I should be off the clock early today which means after I get a few errands done, I will head to my "not so local hobby shop" something I have not done since at least May of this past year. I need to pick up a new Walthers catalog and see what other items I just can't live without and catch up with the owner. Saturday: Will probably be an automotive day. Parts for the Falcon's exhaust manifold came in so I can finally start work on that. The father-in-law has to drop off his truck for maintenance at the dealership near us, so the plan is for Ang to pick him up tomorrow morning and bring him back to our place for breakfast where I'll be making my homemade biscuits and gravy. Once we are done, I'll nurse the Falcon the hour and half drive up north to his garage with Ang following as support vehicle. Once there, we will see how much of a fight the exhaust manifold puts up. For those who don't know, most old cars don't give up their exhaust parts easily and usually a threaded stud is broken in the process. If that happens, we'll need to take the engine head off and take it to a machine shop to get the broken stud out. I'm not concerned as this will give me an excuse to switch parts to make the Falcon burn unleaded fuel. After playing with cars, we're taking Angela's grandma out for an early dinner and calling it a day. Sunday: I plan to get up, make coffee and open the garage. It is supposed to be in the 60's so I hope to get a lot done out there before winter comes. I'll need to install the legs into my shadow box, design and install some small shelfs for the leveling screws on the modules to rest on and start gluing the backdrop in that I cut to size last weekend. I also need to finalize my method of attaching the layout to the wall. The legs are for when I take the layout on the road for display. I'm still leaning towards a French Cleat system, but standard "A" frame brackets are built as well. If I get a chance to get paint, I would really like to paint the backdrop and finalize my LED lighting. My goal is to get to a point to where I just need to install the outer fascia next week. We'll see. So how about you? What do you have planned? Let us know. We'll assemble again on Monday the 23rd to see how we all did. Until then, have a great weekend, be safe and as always... High Greens!
