We are down to just the last couple of bits at grandma's. Today will be a big day for Katie. Her hatred for painting doors has come full circle. The newly installed front door gets ripped off the hinges and laid out in the backyard for it's first coat of paint. A single stage Rust-Oleum will seal the outside facade against the mighty Arizona sun.
While the paint is drying I go about my business and tidy up the cabinets with the handle installation. It's easy going as the sharp new drill bits make a hole without destroying the laminate finish. Then it's off to install a couple of more outlets and light switches.
The day winds down into the late afternoon. We stuck around a bit later than usual so that we could give the door paint enough time to set. Cautiously the door gets hinged back to the frame to avoid damaging the new paint. It will be a full week until it cures to maximum hardness.
Ah yes, another exciting book came in. This one is quite a bit older but still holds some information that I will be able to use. The end goal is simple: build a cheap car which looks slow that is stupid fast.
We get home and I settle in for some reading. The first few pages are all about the basics and then we get into the real fun stuff. Algebraic equations will lead me to the path of building a motor that can handle some forced induction. Finally, all the crap I was forced to learn in high school has paid off. This will be the first time in my adult life I've ever needed to understand this stuff.
