      Nice. Hey to get the undercoat off Oven cleaner is your best friend then just pressure wash it off! Worked great on the cuda, first round 90% came off, had to re spray the seams/corners aging then hit it with a smakk wire brush then pressure washed it agai.99% of the undercoat came off. Did it on the lift with plastic sheeting taped to the car to the floor so I did not get the shop full of water.

        Holy Cow, 504 new cases of Covid reported Tuesday in this state. Maybe I should just start pushing those people off of the bridge who aren't wearing masks, it's a LONG way to the water and hardly anyone ever survives the fall. Extreme??...I think not lol!

            Thanks, haven't heard that one. I got the front end done with heat gun, putty scraper, wire wheel etc. Like the idea of being able to get into the tight spots, will definitely consider!

            A friend of mine back when I was in Navy was taking his fishing boat under this bridge, heard a splash, circled back and plucked a guy out of the water. Lots of broken bones, guy had left a suicide note on the bicycle he rode to the pass, couldn't even kill himself right! Guy was take back to Cornet Bay Marina, very close, he lived.

                They must have shined up some terminals when they spliced the cable. upload_2020-8-12_7-15-43.png

                  yep. They might have lost a tower with the 100 mph straight line winds and severed a fiber cable.

                      So, could I ask if you went with one of the big student loan places like Sallie Mae or local?

                      That'll do it, usually trees around here where we also have aerial runs.

                        I was wondering when you would be back on line, a bunch of damage to your area, 100 mph winds and trucks over turned, business building damaged.
                        Your new roof make it threw the storm ?
                        Glad to see your back this morning Mike
