Another Rosie joke! I better ask her what she thinks. :)

Jeff, I need a warm place to build the Limo Cub.

Gary, now that this part is done, maybe I will get the temporary center wall up so I can insulate it for the winter.

Stanton, I started on this around noon Thursday after I picked up the doors and worked off and on until Saturday evening. I still have to install the hardware. They sent some of the hardware for an 8 foot door instead of 10 foot so I gotta get it tomorrow. The passage door had already been installed a little over a year ago.

Everything will get paint. Camouflauge, so Rosie can't find me for menial tasks like working on her dryer or changin' dark suckers.

Hey Bill, I just thought I'd let you see how much undarker it is with these new doors.

Here are the last two doors hanging. The ones I just replaced looked just like these.

And here is what it looks like with less dark around them. I can't wait to show Rosie the difference. :D

Looks good Bill!

I am sure Carol Merrill, I mean Rosie, will approve of the difference!

Now you need a couple electric door openers to finish it off… the openers wouldn’t be that expensive but all the remotes for the Cubs wild be a killer!

Nice job Bill. How do you heat the shop. I know when you are in there there is a lot of hot air. :D :D
