Slow Weekend

I did a little work on the fender this weekend to get it shaped up for body filler. I had to stop welding midway through ┬áthe third patch last weekend, so I plugged everything back in and finished that off today. It’s going to take a fair bit of filler to smooth everything out because I can’t get to the backside to hammer out any of the waves, but I’m not too worried about that. The whole thing is going to take some time and attention to finish off right, but I’m happy with the way things are going so far.

Updating the Travelall to-do list last week I realized I don’t have some of the information I need on the health of the engine, so I spent $20 on a compression tester for when the weather warms up. The last time I started her, she ran very rough, so I think there’s more work to do tuning her up. I’m going to pull the plugs, see how they look, and properly gap them all. Then I’ll do a compression test and put them back in.
