For some reason Eric's thread always makes me think of a passage from a favorite book of mine:
It was a ship of classic, simple design, like a flattened salmon, twenty yards long, very clean, very sleek. There was just one remarkable thing about it.
"It's so ... black!" said Ford Prefect, "you can hardly make out its shape ... light just seems to fall into it!"
Zaphod said nothing. He had simply fallen in love.
The blackness of it was so extreme that it was almost impossible to tell how close you were standing to it.
"Your eyes just slide off it ..." said Ford in wonder. It was an emotional moment. He bit his lip.
Zaphod moved forward to it, slowly, like a man possessed - or more accurately like a man who wanted to possess. His hand reached out to stroke it. His hand stopped. His hand reached out to stroke it again. His hand stopped again.
"Come and feel the surface," he said in a hushed voice.
Ford put his hand out to feel it. His hand stopped.
"You ... you can't ..." he said.
"See?" said Zaphod, "it's just totally frictionless. This must be one mother of a mover ..."
He turned to look at Ford seriously. At least, one of his heads did - the other stayed gazing in awe at the ship.
"What do you reckon, Ford?" he said.
"You mean ... er ..." Ford looked over his shoulder. "You mean stroll off with it? You think we should?"
"No."
"Nor do I."
"But we're going to, aren't we?"
"How can we not?"
Wow Jamie! I could not expect higher praise than that. I'm honored my build moves you to think of those words.
Thank You so Very Much!!! :D 8)

Started a little later than I planned. I had to run to Lowes for more laquer thinner (gallon #4) and some chip brishes.
Then to Walmart for more paint pans. They were out of the six inch pans so I had to settle for the four inch. The ones at Lowes are to dang thin.
Walmarts are nice and thick!
Really cool shop when I started, 63 degrees and 37 outside. I know Narfi and Fuzz are laughing their butts off at that! :lol:
Anyway, 15 ounce batch got it done but not much left over. The cool temp made the application thicker is my guess.
I'll let this cure out and test sand a couple of place Monday to see where I am.

Finish temp. :o

Happy Veteran's Day!! I'm headed out to the barbershop. The owner is catering free BBQ to any Vet that comes by.
I'm going to take a plate to my Dad. Y'all have a good weekend.

Thanks everyone! :)
Dad was the best I've seen him in weeks!! He's getting up and going to restroom on his own. :D
He said they are feeding him like a horse too! He ate just a few bites of the BBQ but insisted we take it home because he was full.
We have to toss it from him taking radiation etc but it made him happy.
He spoke well of the staff there except the one CNA that was somewhat kurt with him over taking med's at 3:00 am.
Dad said, "She's no nurse, She's just a rude ball washer". I laughed so hard they came in the room to check on us! :lol: :lol: :lol:
