With my schedule and Chewy's (cohort at work) schedule, its been tough to find a block of time long enough to push the plane out, drop the old door, pull out the good materials, rebuild the door, then get it back up. The real kicker is that once we get it up, its been taking a couple hours to get it fitted to where it has to live. Nothing like an old settled building... On average, the doors are an inch bigger from one end to the other. The front door is an inch shorter overall than the inside door. The rails the doors ride on and the overhead guides are uneven from side to side AND FROM EACH OTHER with the most narrow spot in the middle.... In other words, each of the three door is very customized. It took 10 to 12 hours on each door! Anyway, the hangar doors are redone, and now we're replacing rotten footers on the hangar walls. Too much fun! (NOT, since there are rodents, powder post beetles, ants, and dry rot involved.) I've still got a bit of painting to do on the doors, all big roller work so it'll go fast, then we've got to replace footers on another wall.
The accident happened one afternoon as I was going up to the airport to prime plywood, and boils down to the nudge in the motor home wasn't paying attention and came cruising over the hill at 45 mph. In a 35 MPH zone. I'm guessing he really did miss the two (TWO!) 35 mph signs as well as having brakes that were not quite up to stopping at the bottom of a hill while he was towing a small SUV. Oh and he missed the fact that there were two of us stopped... Sigh, tourists. Its either that or motor homes really DO have it in for me, as this is the SECOND time I've been crunched because of one. At least this time my truck is drive-able, only $1,700 worth of damage to the back bumper and rear passenger quarter panel.
I'll have a picture of this load out of the kiln tomorrow! Tonight I'm done!
