    Winds could get to 90 mph too. And it supposed to get here sometime through the night Nothing like the folks in the bahamas, but we'll certainly lose our power and hopefully the trees don't cause more damage. The salt water in the rain won't bother the cranberries to much, but the other crops could be hindered next year.
    Hope it doesn't mess thing up too bad up your way, just a nasty, massive storm!

    Makes me realize that I've got to stop dragging my feet on the free energy project that I'm squirreling away bits and pieces for. Nothing extreme, I just want the fridge and TV off the grid, eventually the well pump too.

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.

    I'm glad to hear the storm missed you guys! Hopefully it will go fizzle out and not do anymore damage for the people farther north. Your tank work is looking great. On the 8.8 cast/welding situation. On my 40 I had a plate cut that goes in between the housing and the diff cover. I than tied my bracketry into the axle tubes as well as the mid plate so it will act like a truss too. I was really leery of trusting welding to the cast housing. I value the lives of anyone who may ride in it too much.

    OK, here is the picture I promised above. This crossmember is not visible with the body in place unless you crawl under the car. I can weld brackets to it, drill holes in it, or whatever and do no damage to the pretty polished stainless spreader bar.

    Monday I put the final pieces on the tailpipes; they are 304 stainless. I made hangers out of perforated strap and bolted them through the crossmember I installed in the last posting. For now I just attached the pipes to the hangers with hose clamps. I'll replace those with something better in final assembly.
