  Had to make a water trap in the compressed air system. The idea was to make something fast. I used plastic rated for 300 pounds of pressure. But, I will need to use metal piping later on when I get some. Maybe I can find a building being torn down and get some pipe for free.

  In order to have mucho much hard drive space for all the data collected, AVI's, JPG's, and assorted other data for the production of the "Mini Series" videos and the full length video. I needed more hard drive space. This is the current expended construction of this home made hard drive array. The system as of today 07-11-16, (the main computer) has 22 hard drives, 2 Raid cards (with single drive setting). Pleanty of room, and expandable by changing out smaller drive to a larger. There are no drives installed smaller than 100 gig. The case was made from commercial (store) shelfing.

  The front has space to insert filters. Currently, is a large partical filter, than on top of that is a small partical filter. The array runs on a seperate 400 watt power supply, and also powers additional hard drives in the computers case. Those drives are back up for the main "data working" drives each night as data is inputed, as the work and videos progresses.

  Instead of driving the car over dirt and sometimes mud. I make a driveway all the way to the booth. This is in several parts. seamed In several videos of other things done. This video is the final I think... Unless I decide to cover all the ground around it too.

  before we paint the trees need to be trimmed because the sun is used to heat the booth. Need at least 100 degrees. Not today though, but we do trim, and other work on the car.

  This one not of the ordinary. But, it is a major step forward for this 1962 Ford fairlane. The first paint job. Plans are, when I retire, another paint job 2 tone, and some more fix of a few minor inperfections.

  This video is very special. Many people questioned the "wrong reading" cure with the "yellow Wire" gas sender. It's not the sender, it's the way the tank is installed. You need to watch the complete video to understand the cure for the correct reading on your gas gauge for this age bracket Ford auto.
