Just a heads up man, that's not a heater. That's a door. I've seen a lot of them so I know what I'm talking about.
That’s freaking hilarious! That’s to remind me and my kid to shut the heater off when we’re leaving since the shop is rented and not at our place, wouldn’t see the smoke before the fire.

Don't be @BikerPepe` gets disappointed all the time...
Well that’s ok I aim to disappoint, just as my kids.
Got my blades yesterday, then got suckered into an hour each way drive to grab a hoopty from my scraper that runs and drives, so my daughter has something to drive while she waits to see what her insurance is doing with her Jeep. Might get more done this week or weekend, gotta go over the hoopty first.

It's true. 🤣
Appreciate the kind words @Joecruiser but no worries man. Been almost 1/2 lifetime away now.
Hey Pepe if you make the Oregon coast hit me up I’ll have you meet the father-in-law, double amputee, he could use some inspiration to get out of the jazzy chair and learn to walk better. If you want some gore I might be able to dig up a picture of his gang green hole in his foot two days before the VA took his second leg....... also two days after the Adventist’s Medical Foot specialist/surgeon cut the dead skin off and said “ok I’ll see you next week”
It’s the only hospital we got within 60 miles... I’ll only go there if I’m bleeding out, then pray they don’t kill me.

Watched my step-Grandmother go from having a few toes amputated in a chainsaw incident to being a double above knee amputee from diabetes before she passed on. I've personally had repeated pressure sores from the very beginning that turned into infections that have required over a dozen surgeries through 20 years with 6 mo. recoveries (on average), many of which I've had to heal gaping holes in my stump doing everything from stuffing an entire bottle of gauze into the open wound daily, myself or been hooked up to suctions machines constantly sucking the blood and puss from my infected stump for months on end. Above and beyond my own or family issues, I was a certified R.T.P.O. (registered prosthetic/orthotic technician) and built a couple hundred prosthesis, some for people with bigger issues than my own. I've seen plenty of amputee gore man. Tell ya what... I'll slap a less than gory pic up just to give your thread title a little cred. No need for the real gory stuff... I've got plenty of those taken for documentation but nobody really wants to see that sh!t. I actually posted this one here before, when I was still in the hospital back in '13.

I'd be happy to meet up with you and your pappy if I ever make it down that way again but I'm no inspiration to anyone. I'm just a worn down old wild man who's still just trying to get down the road in life with a flat tire and a 1/2 assed spare. I spend 1/2 my time in a wheelchair myself, just to avoid going back under the knife from over-using my prosthesis. Took me a long, long time to accept my limitations and back off. I tried doing that inspirational bullshit before and instead of inspiring anyone... I nearly got drug down into the depression myself. If I've learned anything in this life... one of those simple truths is this: "You can't help anyone who doesn't want to be helped."

I've got no divine secrets to share or inspirational tales of triumph. I'm just too damn stubborn to lie down and die. ;)

Forgot to update, got the tongue box welded on and closed up the frame notch. Waiting on the tongue jack and safety chains. Used a square to get it lined up
