    Paint and Fiberglass Repair

    GN7 On the Dyno
    Starting on the dyno room. I am frickin tired of working on the shop. I'd prefer to go back to drinking every night. BUT, that doesn't accomplish anything. So.... most rooms have the cold air (fresh air) come in right above the engine. I guess that makes sense.... if only running carb...
  4. Topock construction

    PB Open Water
    On our trip upriver today, we glanced over at the location of the former favorite boating destination, Topock Marina. They were working away on it, welding steel framework, had some concrete poured, and it was looking much better than I'd seen in a long time. There were at least two locations...
