  1. The shop is finally finished. At least as far as the county is concerned. The inspector just signed off on the final inspection!!! Time to get back to work on the Velo Rossa.
  2. Stretching for the finish line. Garage doors are in and operational.
  3. If the integrity of the seat mounts and frame rail is not affected by the rust, I'd patch. Especially if you're not worried about aesthetics. I replaced my Swiss cheese floors mainly because the rust was in all the edges of the rail underneath and the front seat mount. I also cut the roof off so I needed the floors to be solid along with the addition of stiffening tubing. It looks great, but it's a lot more involved than patching. I have a cheap flux core wire feed welder you can borrow if you'd like. It's what I used to do my floors.
  4. All it needs now is garage doors, down spouts, some trim paint and a final inspection.
  5. So, after digging a trench 24" deep and 120' long and laying 2" conduit containing my electrical service line..... ...I was able to do this... ...and finally, some of this. Doing a little finish work inside while waiting for my stucco guy to get back to me. Garage doors are also on the "ToDo" list.
  6. Sounds healthy too. Always a good feeling when it runs for the first time. It’s no longer just a bag of parts. Well done sir!
  7. Just posted Friday on FB. https://www.facebook.com/groups/GTORR/permalink/1869326570041659/
  8. My first inspection went well. Only a couple of corrections needed. Add a few brackets to the shear walls and blocking. And add one concrete anchor. Inspector said he'd sign those off at the next inspection and gave the go ahead to install the roof and rough electrical. Took this pic this morning. With the roof and gutters installed, I'll be mounting electrical boxes and running wire soon. And I have a guy lined up to do all the stucco to match the house.
  9. A short video of my progress on the shop. Shop Progress
  10. It's come a long way in the last three months, but still a ways to go...
  11. Glad to see you’re back at it , Nathan. It is amazing how a simple thing like a broken stud can cause so much anguish. And I certainly understand how moving can interrupt a good build. It’s been almost four years since our move with no progress on the VR. Waiting for some dry weather so I can start framing the shop. Are you still local?
