Under serious consideration. No firm date yet, but we can see an overseas trip on our agenda. Possibly next year....


Good stuff, get the passport organised and give us notice so we can book a day or 3 off from work to show you a little bit of the local knowledge stuff.

Working on this. It is a half size rocking horse out of a pallet for this event. There has been a reasonable investment of swear words to get to this stage & not looking forward to trying to hand carve the body. I think there may be some mechanical carving/sanding going on.

Plenty of time to get involved if you are around Toowoomba.

This event is on again this year & getting an early start.

Going one better & doing a medium sized horse on a swing stand.

Here is the horse blocked up but yet to glue on head & neck muscle blocks.

Been through almost 2 bottles of glue & there are approx 160 pieces of pallet. Actually used skids from a shed supplier & a metal supplier as the boards were a bit thicker to allow for material machined of to get parallel faces for gluing.

Hoping all my joins are pretty good as I want to finish with a clear coat so it is obvious it is made from pallets.

Now working on the stand. Will be interesting to see how the posts turn with the knots & glue lines.

No need to be jealous all I do is stick lumps of wood together and hack of the bits that don't look like a horse.

Progress on the stand today. The top rail is not pallet as well as the 2 small crosspieces for the base, although if I find some more suitable material the 2 small pieces will be pallet. Turning the posts wasn't as problematic as I thought it might be only have a couple of nail holes on the surface & a couple of variations between each post that shouldn't be noticeable when mounted.

Next will be the saddle & tack while waiting for some items to be sealed in the body of the horse like a time capsule I hope no one gets to see for a long time.

Today, i started getting some paint done in my spare parts section of the shed. Looks heaps better already.

The tranny on the Fleetwood has been pissing out oil lately.
Up on stands, start looking around the where the dipstick tube screws into the metal boss on the pan, was as loose as all Shit.
Tightened that up, nipped the pan a tad firmer and just threw a spanner on any nuts and bolts I could see.

Car down and waved a timing light over it.... 10 degrees still, so that was still fine.
Noticed a bit of oil residue around the fuel pump, so nipped that up.
Checked all the vital fluids, the whole time, listening to the American Graffiti sound track.  8)
 
Then it was outside for a rub-a-dub-dub and back into the shed.
Back up again on the jack stands so I can scrub the whitewalls.

Some Palmolive, a little on the stain and the rest in the wash.... hmmm, really white, white-walls now.

Parked the Fleetwood back onto its astro-turf and throw the 4 bed sheets over it and its clean, covered and cruising ready now.

Geez its fun pissing around with old cars.
