Pico, eh? I was in La Mirada for a few years, and my wife grew up out in Diamond Bar. You couldn't pay me enough to live down there again, but it did have its perks. NorCal is lively enough what with the fires and all.

I am hoping the same thing about the white paint, that it will keep the critters away or at least in view.

I don't like it here ether. When I retired I considered moving very seriously but the perks keep me here. The perk I cared about was the availability of quality medical services which my wife and daughter need now and this old man will eventually need.

And what color windshield cleaner fluid do you use to thin Craft paint with?

Thanks guys, I finally cleaned my way to the main work bench and reviewed the mogul parts to remember where I was at and now need to go.

HI guys,
Before getting waylaid by the senorizing project I had sent off a print order to Shapeways for an adjusted crossbar yoke. I also tried a new material. I honestly can't remember what the new material was but on examining the part today, I don't like it. It looks like chunky lava. But the part was the right size;




It has now been ordered in brass.
the little post behind the yoke will hold the running boards straight and the water pumps will be cemented to it too.

Yes, it's nice to be back in the saddle.

That crossbar yoke does look awfully lumpy. Glad it was the correct size though. Should be good to go in brass.
