    Plans were to get the 52's installed and start on the crossover.

    The General wasn't in the mood to start so we had to tow it out of the storage yard and push it in the bay with the DQ. Guess carbs don't like below zero temps.

    Nick arrived and the 3 of us started in. Slow going but we got everything pulled and the rivets ground down. We spent a few hours trying to get rivets pounded out with little luck. Ended up having Scott's father-in-law Lynn torch the rivets out, he's very skilled with fire.

    That was about the extent of it, hopefully La Manana will proceed smoothly. Some pics from today including Liam's indoor snowman.

    Burning out bushings reminds me of a jack in the box, POP goes the inner sleeve.
