« vivre le peu | Main | bottle tree »

This is our last month in the Alpinis Court garage. The CRX is running, the Austin is safely back at the house, and the shop is all but empty. I still have the welder, workbench, and torch. Mwahahaha!

Dreya and her roomate will have a booth selling their artwork at a fair in Dec, so she asked if I'd like to make some stuff she could try to sell for me there. Cool. I'm working on it, and I have lots of room.

I made another dragon, a stylish crocodilish, another gearhead, and another, ummm... manbearpig?

I also figured that since people seem to like bottle trees I'd [shiver] make some of those since they might actually sell, instead of just having fun making things people like but almost never buy.

I might put up pictures of the trees later if i decide i like them.

The treefrog is painted and has it's own stand, so it'll be going, but as a display only. My mom wants it.

I need to find all my scrap bolts and make a bunch of stick figures... maybe some could hold business cards. People like useful stuff like that.

The CRX isn't getting as good mpg as I'd hoped. Remember that EGR system i mentioned? Well it's clogged up with gook. Compared to most other cars, it's a kinda big deal to clean out. I'll have an entry about it sometime. That might give me a couple more mpg, but I gotta find more or it's getting the Si motor. Why have only 70hp if you can't get 40-50mpg? You can drive an Si like a wuss and get that if you want to, and it has 115hp. Perhaps Franky has a hand in it after all. We'll see.


You can always come look through our scrap for ideas, parts, etc.
