    I slopped and sanded off a lot of Putty but got it to the point where I'm happy with it. Glued on the little brass thingies and primed it. I'll have to wait o paint it till next week. I still have blister to make for it and I'm going to visit my Dad this weekend.
    We'll resume this next week.
    PS: my buddy that was supposed to 3D print me an engine couldn't get it done on time so I'll attempt to make my own out of Balsa. That should be fun. :)

    Tried to come off of the painkillers yesterday. Of course they finally wore off just at bedtime and my pain levels went through the roof. So I had to go back on them but of course that takes time before they are effective again. I think I finally got back to sleep around 4 am.

    I hate trying to sleep while in some sort of pain. That sucks.

    I was thinking the other day when you were in the hospital talking about pain meds that I hope you wouldn’t mix them with any alcohol.
    That’s almost never a good thing.

    I'm back home. Dad's doing great for 88.

    How you doing Doug? Your pain starting to subside?

    Today's goal is to make the blister on the shield. Picture later this evening unless I mess it up. :)

    88 he is doing well. Very few men get up to those high numbers.
    As for me I am doing better but still having issues. Woke up at 02:30 in pain last night and had to get up. Ankle still swollen and discolored, as for my toe I can't see it under the dressing.

    Made up a blister for the hood and glued it on. This was there on full scale to clear intake manifold. I'm going to stop here for now because I started scratch building a new engine. I'll need the engine before I can drill holes for the radiator tube in the shield.

    The Mercedes 160 HP engine is going to spend some time on the shelf. My previous Idea of having a friend of mine 3D print an Austro Daimler 200 HP engine fell through. While that would have been cool. I now have to go to plan 2 and do it out of available materials. Ply, Balsa and PVC. It's going to be some work but I'll be able to say I did it.

    Here is the start.

    I can make you a toe Doug but there wouldn't be any feeling in it. That may be worse the one with pain that you know will go away with time.

    Got all 6 heads rough sanded. Started sizing the intake ports. Drilled a 3/4 in hole in some scrap ply. That is what I'm using for a gauge.

    I also checked it for fit. It'll work. :)
