With this virus crap and no one able to be near anyone else. Plus a lot of people unable to go into work I expect to see a LOT of new builds and new additions to existing builds. Russ

Except for our idgit governor decreeing the destruction of our state economy today, the current paranoia has made virtually no difference to my routine.
I can now forget any notion of turning my fabrication efforts into a profit, too many folk just lost all of their "Discretionary" income for a long time to come.
But I'm still going to complete the personal builds.
Gave in and signed up for SS, not like I'm going to be able to find a real full-time job with thousands of younger guys suddenly competing with me.
So it looks like I will be splitting my time between my part-time sort-of job, and completing my builds.
Once SS kicks in it will at least cover the rent for me.

I've been buying bits online to move Tinker Toys forward. Buying on Fb marketplace and Craigslist got harder as nobody wants to meet up to sell anything.

I'm a bit late here, but I tacked my first two pieces of tubing together on July 18th (2020) of my McSorely +400 building using a 1992 S-10 (4.3L V6) as a donor. I'm closing in on being done with the initial frame work and getting ready to tear apart my donor to start locating the bits within the chassis.

with our single person a day infection rate in New Zealand I could still find some time to repaint the Chevron with rustoleum 2X
