...you have my sympathy/empathy...good luck at the docs...I'll cross my fingers and send some positive thoughts your way.........

Thanks Jack!!

 

The Doc put me on some muscle relaxers and Naproxen for a week to see if things will loosen up.. If that doesn't improve anything, then it's off to a Orthopedic specialist to see if they need to stick me on a frame machine and hammer out any kinks..

 

This growing old crap definitely ain't for sissies!!! :P

As if I don't have enough to do.... Thanks to Photobucket's unannounced change in terms, I have to move all my pics to another host.. I refuse to pay their $400 a year "ransom" to restore the pics in my thread.. As I get all my pics moved and set up in albums, hopefully, Eric can reopen the editing feature on my older posts so I can go back and fix all the broken picture links..

Bear with me the pics WILL return, and Photobucket can KISS MY ASS!!

Thanks for the update John......I was wondering why I couldn't view yours pics.   Have enjoyed the progress reports on the boat.   Photobucket seems to be wanting to make a lot more money......sad.   Anyways.......good luck getting the pics moved over and hope the back is doing better.

Thanks Jerry!! The pinched nerve is finally starting to give me some relief..

 

It's been nothing short of a monumental PITA to get all my pics transferred over to another host and set up in new albums.. I HAD been a paying customer at Photobucket for years to have unlimited linking, but after the way they shafted everyone with their change in service I told them to shove it.. There was no way I was gonna swallow a price increase from $60 a year to $400 a year..

 

So far, I have a good portion of the Century's albums set up and have been cleaning up the mess in my restoration threads on a pair of boat forums I hang out at.. Those forums don't have a "time out" on being able to edit your posts, so I've been able to easily go back and edit all the picture links since I started this restoration project six months ago.. I also have a few other "build threads" on one of those forums that also have to have all the links fixed..

 

As far as getting this thread back on track, I'll have to send Eric a PM and see if he will "unlock" the editing ability on the older posts, so I can go in and fix the picture links..

A BIG Thank You to Eric for "unlocking" the editing ability on the older posts!! With his help, I was able to fix all the broken picture links in this thread that was caused by Photobucket's extortion attempt..

 

As soon as I get caught up with my day job and finish a few bookshelf projects for the girlfriend's classroom, I hope to have some more updates on the boat restoration in a few weeks..

No progress on the boat to report, the pool business has had me tied to the whipping post for the last few weeks.. Now that all the bookcases I had to repair for my GF are out of my way in the garage and back in her classroom where they belong, I'm hoping to be able to get back to work on painting all the interior parts for the boat that I rebuilt.. Replacing the floor in the boat will have to wait until the weather cools off a little.. In the meantime, I have a lot of little restoration projects on the boat that can be knocked out before I HAVE to get after replacing the floor..

 

Hope to have some progress to report in a couple of weeks.. B)

Just a quick update...

 

Things are finally getting back to normal after Harvey kinda rained on our parade.. Work has had me tied to the whipping post getting flooded pools cleaned back up and flooded pumps & heaters repaired or replaced.. Last weekend was the first weekend that I got to actually get some boat work done.. I brought the boat home from storage, removed the windshield and replaced all the old rotted weatherstriping and gaskets, and mounted it back on the boat.. I also managed to get some of the new parts painted, and reassembled the backrest for the front seat along with putting the upholstery back on the new base for the rear seat..

 

Yeah... Yeah.... Pics or it didn't happen, I know the drill.... :P B)

 

Here's all the rebuilt engine beds with a fresh coat of mahogany bilge paint, ready to be installed in the boat as soon as I get the old lag bolt holes filled and redrilled in the stringers..

The new rear seat base with a coat of paint and the original upholstery reinstalled on the kick plate..

I need to hit a trim shop and pick up some fresh "hydem" to finish trimming out the back of the backrest.. The original hydem that trimmed out the edges of the vinyl side panels had deteriorated to the point of being unusable after being removed from the old rotted frame..

Thanks Jerry!!

 

That short video was just the kick in shorts I needed to get my butt back in gear.. I'm hoping to be able to haul my boat up to Lake Conroe before the end of the year and let it's little Mopar totally shatter the early morning silence of a crisp, clear Sunday morning with a 225 horsepower thunderclap!! B)  :ninja:
