Shop News For Late August

Trailer Paint, Test Fit Dash, and a Little Landscaping

Landscaping First

Not so much got done in the shop as I spent a week at my lake house, mostly doing landscaping.

Trailer Paint

I bought a mid-90s Aluminum trailer last year, and treated it to a freshen up. The white paint is on as are the Red and Blue Stripes. Free-handed the Star to the Texas Flag on the rear door today. The blue is now on. I’ll tape off the red and white right side on later in the week.


Inside I’ve mounted a 12,000 winch and some other racing equipment. The inside walls will also get a coat of paint. More photos to follow.

The Petty Tribute

An aluminum dash has been cut and test fitted into the car. It will get pulled back out and filled with gauges and switches.

The blue-green color is a protective cover that will get removed t the very end.

Screaming Woody

Its ready for me to make a blast down the country road by my shop in the morning. If all goes well, I’ll take to Denton for the SHRA race on September 14th. If all goes well, I’ll leave early in the morning of the 17th and take it to race in Indy. If it still needs work, then I’ll take The Thug to Indy.

Motorcycling In The Rockies

So on June 28th my wife and I left Texas early in the morning In my Ram 3500, pulling my race trailer with both my son’ and my Harleys. We headed 900+ miles to Cuchara, Colorado. It was our 2nd annual trip there for the 4th of July. We arrived at the Stonewall Lodge in the early evening. My eldest daughter, her husband, and their twin 4-year-olds had arrived the day before. My eldest son, his wife, and their two sons had arrived earlier that morning; and were staying at his wife’s family cabin about 30 minutes up the road. My middle and youngest daughter arrived the next morning.

Long story short, I took three bike rides (two with my son) through the mountain passes – and now I can cross that off my bucket list. Also did a little trout fishing, had many bear sightings, and were in two hail storms. We stayed a week and headed home early morning of July 6th and was home before midnight.

Below are photos and videos, in no particular order, and without explanation.
