    Only put in 1/2 tank of gas into my car.
    Really hoping the weather will warm up soon, so I can ride to work.

    Hello Ted,

    Ted, goto to your local sign shop that does the big light up signs - tell them what your building, and ask if you can have or purchase some of of there scrap aluminum from their bone yard... it will come in the form of old signs, but usable aluminum...

    tell them that metro sign corporation in oklahoma city recommended you to ask them...

    I use it for brackets, my fork brace, misc stuff... I am playing with some ideas for a battery module and also trying to learn how to bend the stuff. Unfortunately, one of the things I did today was to learn that the Mac Pro cases are an alloy that doesn't like to bend. booooo.

    Cleaned 30 years of gunk, then painted the rear wheel, sprocket hub and brake carrier for the KZE. Installed new drum brake shoes. Pinched the s*** out of my finger.
